History of Toblerone

Toblerone, the iconic Swiss chocolate bar known for its distinctive triangular shape and honey-almond nougat, was created in 1908 by Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann in Bern, Switzerland. The name 'Toblerone' is a portmanteau of Tobler's name and 'torrone,' the Italian word for nougat. Initially produced by the Tobler family, the brand was later acquired by Mondelez International, one of the world's largest snack companies. Mondelez, which formed after Kraft Foods split into two entities in 2012, has continued to maintain Toblerone's unique recipe and branding while expanding its global market presence.
