From 5th October, Twin Peaks 180g Bars Are Back! (Toblerone-alikes) £1 @ Poundland

*Update 5th October - White Chocolate variety on the way too, from October 12th, re today's story in The Sun*

Is this a Deal? Probably not, so this is more of an FYI. But I am a bit of a chocolate-lover and I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this.

There was a legal bust-up about copyright and the design of their packaging which delayed the release last year, then Twin Peaks disappeared a second time after the "green packaging" revamp.

(Here is the original bar/wrapper design that got pulled off shelves quickly, after Toblerone/Mondelēz complained)3061643.jpgBut Twin Peaks are Back, Back, BACK from the 5th October.

New shape, same great taste…Twin Peaks is back for good ? In stores on 5th October.


The new shape appears to be like this, below (taken from a screen grab of the Poundland Facebook video) - seems the "green" packaging remains the same. This newly re-shaped bar may explain why Twin Peaks did a disappearing act again?3061643.jpgHere's a quick review of the two, from December 2017: grocerygems.blogspot.com/201…tml

Another review from Food Review UK, also December 2017 (where this Youtuber explains that Toblerone asked Poundland to change the shape as well as the packaging):
Even though the packaging and shape of Twin Peaks has had tweaks (that rhymes), Poundland assures us the chocolate bar itself is still the same.

Heat these are actually really nice I like them. Like to keep mine in the fridge so they keep really hard and crunchy!
I found they were definitely crunchy but the chocolate was lacking severely.
I imagine kids would love it because it's sweet and they wouldn't care about the chocolate.

Heat from me ..

you cannot compare them to the original deal....
Meh, I like twin peaks
For a quid its decent, depends if you like cheap chocolate, which I do!
Sorry, not a patch on Toby!

Toblerone no longer being in the poundshop has done my waistline a favour - more of a treat now.

Green And Blacks is my favourite-favourite but I do like this Poundland knockoff. They did sell "Sweet Heaven" chocolate I couldn't stand, though (picture below) - about two years ago - it was absolutely disgusting. Not sure who manufactured those for them? Walkers make Twin Peaks, afaik.

It's rare I throw chocolate in the bin, but the Milk Chocolate variety was thrown away, I hated it so much. Took me a while to sample Twin Peaks as I thought it'd be similarly terrible.35399291-LI5bT.jpg

Thank you for the recommendation, may try the dark chocolate!

My Tesco (round about my birthday as well!) was selling the Miniatures selection RTC/yellow stickered for £1.50. (£4.50 online at the moment, alas).

Went a bit mad and bought myself a few. A good way to introduce yourself to Green And Blacks if you're not sure. I really like the Milk Chocolate/Blue wrapper on the left, but all varieties are great.35400063-mhIKT.jpg

You are not wrong there! I bought some of this when they flogged it off for 50p a bar. It was rank bad and ended up in the bin
I managed to get some of this chocolate today in Darlington. So I am not sure why they are saying Friday is the big release day?

It shouldnt be on sale yet. Someones in trouble 🙈🙈
White choc and fruit and nut too I hear you say????
Not sure about today's story in The Sun suggesting queues and slight hysteria for the now-re-released Twin Peaks (probably just a photographer asking them to ham up for the cameras), but apparently a White Chocolate version IS on the way, in just a week's time (12th)!35499293-KoYg5.jpg

Tastes like a Double Decker, rank.
