Toblerone Introduces 12 Limited Edition Giant Chocolates

Chocolates are addictive and we love them so much. The basic fact that chocolate tastes good and we enjoy eating it means that the body releases dopamine during chocolate consumption. It makes us happy when we buy them and it makes us feel loved when we receive them from someone. And speaking of receiving, it’s Christmas once again and chocolates can be the perfect gift items you can give just to anyone!

From your nanay to tatays, ates or kuyas, daugthers or sons, and even your friends and colleagues; chocolates never go out of season, and these holidays, Toblerone is once again making gift giving more exciting with its humongous chocolate boxes – with a statement!

In the past years, Toblerone has been successful in its gimmicks as it introduced customizable chocolate boxes during special occasions like Valentine’s and now, the Christmas holidays. We’ve seen size able boxes of the popular chocolate brand but it’s just this time that I’m able to get a 12-inch box for myself.

Attending the launch of Toblerone’s Christmas collection, I enjoyed competing with others in games just to win all those 12 limited edition chocolates. It was fun and it was exciting. They asked us to post photos of the booth in our IG stories, and even if I didn’t get all 12, at least I bagged 10 of these limited editions.

It isn’t really refreshing to get chocolates during holidays. The world has been doing it for years because who doesn’t love chocolates? All of us do. But Toblerone has made it sure that we can customize the chocolates to truly send our love along with the box of sweets.

So skip the usual gadget and clothes giving and #BeMoreImaginative by coming up with a note of love sent through a giant box of Toblerone.

Ms. Nicole Girvin, Toblerone Brand Manager

The limited edition Toblerone Blank Packs this Christmas 2019 features 12 designs where you can write/draw your feelings for your each of your loved ones this Christmas. Each design represents what can be our idea of a perfect gift like a laptop or a tour to somewhere nice. They even come with short wishes like “More Good Fortune this Season” or just a simple “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”

But the gift giving doesn’t stop there because Toblerone is going extravagant in rewarding its most loyal eaters!

As mentioned, the boxes represent an ideal gift item this Christmas and Toblerone is giving exactly all those to its lucky competition winners. From November 15 to December 27, Toblerone invites everyone to buy chocolate packs worth P100 and up and fill up raffle stubs that come with it.
