The company recently unveiled the new design to reduce the candy bar's weight of what was 400g and 170g bars. The move reduced the candy bar's weight to 360g and 150g.

Yup. Toblerone reps said on their Facebook page: "We chose to change the shape to keep the product affordable for our customers."

Of course, their fans were understandably not cool with the news.

For the love of all that is good in this world, please say that other candy companies will not follow suit on this!

Unfortunately, this is nothing new. Cadbury reduced the size of their beloved creme eggs a few years ago. Other candy companies will probably shrink their products eventually too.
