Everything seems to be getting smaller these days. From sweets and crisps right through to chocolate bars.
While we aren't happy about it there is nothing much we can do. We have to just grin and bear it as our treats keep shrinking. Today though some something has happened that is going to have the whole world up in arms. Toblerone are making their bars smaller by changing the shape entirely.
As the company said on their Facebook page...
The move has changed the weight of the 400g bars being reduced to 360g and the 170g bars to 150g
As you can imagine people are not taking the news very well...
America. We voted for the angry, short term, blame-game option. NOW LOOK AT OUR TOBLERONE. pic.twitter.com/4ak6wDDxcz

Although the packaging will remain the same size the simple fact is you'll be getting less chocolate. The company say it is the only way of keeping their treat affordable.
What on earth is the world coming to?
