Toblerclone! Twin Peaks, new Toblerone-style chocolate bar, 180g for £1 at Poundland any day now

76
Found 19th Jun 2017
Available any day now - a new larger Toblerone clone - Toblerclone in fact.

Made by Walkers of Birmingham with a 'British chocolate' taste, this new bar, named after the TV series, is aimed at Mondelez for reducing the size of its Toblerone bars.

Poundland trading director Barry Williams said of Twin Peaks: “Poundland shoppers are savvy and the change in their favourite chocolate bar last Christmas didn’t go unnoticed.

“That’s why we’ve created a new £1 alternative for them - the size they wanted, with a British taste, and with all the spaces in the right places.”

so we're voting RRP , untasted products Hot now .....OK
Well if it tastes just as good as the original Toblerone did before they ruined it then I say well done poundland for listening to what people want. Now, if you can just do the same thing and release a Creamy Egg with its original size and taste then I will be able to smile again. Bring back large tins of Quality Roads as well lol

Is there such a thing as British chocolate after Cadbury"s sell off.

Plus what a load of corporation publicity BS. Why do they always sound like they have eaten a poetry book.
Toblerwars.......size is not the defining factor... it's taste that matters most
True british chocolate taste does NOT contain palm oil/fat.....or any other fatty filler

who buys toblerone outside of duty free anyway?

I think Aldi used to do a decent clone but that vanished, will give this a go.

​Well Poundland sold 40000 bars in the first month of doing a deal with Toblerone.

Most of the other main brand suppliers laughed at the time until thteu saw the figures.
Problem is, for the relatively small weight difference, it has to be just as good as Toblerone. It may be, but in general, own brand things aren't quite as good as the leading brands.

Duty free prices are higher than supermarket prices - so much for the "discount" of duty free

As for this deal - it will probably be something to try once, then remember why you don't buy imitation products and expect the genuine taste.
The illusion of an old larger toblerone being back won't wash for long when people try it.
It's akin to aldi claiming to have brought back old size mars bars by making the horrible clones the same size.
Different product equals zero comparison.

Sort of hoped that Green&Black's would still be manufactured in the UK, but Wikipedia suggests not Dunno whether this happened before or after the Cadbury sell out.
I thought the Toblerone shape was trademarked!
Real Toblerones are £1 for a 150g bar in Iceland currently.
Could be useful to know when you've bought this Toblerclone and realise you've an extra 30g of something you don't really want to eat! (_;)
Poundland have named it Twin Peaks after Wrekin hill in Shropshire not the tv programme !!

​Apparently not

​Have you seen the price of it there! About half the price in most supermarkets, and even better when on offer.
I remember when duty free used to be so much cheaper than the high street.
Sad times.

You could not be more wrong! Other countries traditionally did not have any vegetable fat in their chocolate, it all had to be milk fat or cocoa butter but British chocolate did and still does! It was causing a rift with the Eu back in the early days and up to the 2000's, and took some negotiation for it to be accepted and still able to be called "chocolate"

This outlines the story theguardian.com/uk/…ink
Damn! I was concerned this would be made by Walkers. Urgh, the foulest tasting chocolate in the history of chocolate making...

It's so waxy, I swear if you put a wick in it it'd burn like a candle!

Can't recall if I ever had G&B before Cadbury owned them, but I've certainly not been impressed with the stuff they produce now.

Nothing to do with schooling. It's just the way that PR's waffle on in long sentences and paragraphs about a product which basically a choclate bar.

Also I think the Ceo did not write the press release himself. Sounds like a minion wrote it.​
Damn fine deal, op. Thank you
The major irony here is.that poundland sell scaled down versions of many popular confectionary products to be able to sell them at this price point. In fact many suppliers now produce smaller product sizes specifically for the poundshop market. So for them to now try and take the moral high ground with the nonsensical statement above just shows how ridiculous things have become.

Just give us back our 68g Mars bars with thick milk chocolate on the top and charge a sensible price like 50p a bar and I for one will buy them all day long!!
One of the worst chocolates ever! Heat added for the effort.

It called marketing, I'm afraid.

So another thing that the eu tried to force us to accept their version. Why should we be told what we can sell in the UK.
Loads of talk but has anyone actually tried and tasted this chocolate? And how does it compare? And is there a dark chocolate version?

Sigh. Did you actually bother to read the article? Did you understand it? The case was about whether other countries were allowed to ban our chocolate unless it was labelled "chocolate substitute". There was never any risk of us not being able to sell it in the UK, and in any case we won the case and other countries had to accept it.

Once we're out of the EU, they'll be free to ban any products they feel like. If France decides that British sausages have to be labelled "emulsified high fat offal tubes" there will be nothing we can do about it. Stupid misunderstandings like yours are why we're in this mess. The "meddling Brussels bureaucrats" were on our side in this case, but won't ever be again.

They're going to do well at first as loads of people will buy them to try and compare. After the initial hype it will be whether the product actually tastes good that counts.

How does it feel to literally be a caricature?


Look up "literally" and "caricature" and try again.

Cadbury's was a British institution with a great history. Sad.
Weetabix in Chinese owned now. That's globalisation. We live in UK PLC, not Great Britain.
The chocolates are not what they seem.

I'm well aware of these words and their definitions. I imagine you … I'm well aware of these words and their definitions. I imagine you dressed in your Union Jack onesie, smoking a fag and drinking a tinny of Carling. All while you hordes of kids run around your local estate finding brown people to beat up.You're still a dangerous loon.Maybe look up what hyperbole is, you've had yours, I've had mine.



Umm.. I'm not sure Dodge62 is making the point you think they're making or on the side you think they are.

They seem to be pro-EU to me, rather than the caricature you claim they are.

Whooops! My point about hyperbole still stands though.
