Toblerone fans say Swiss chocolatier should be ‘ashamed’ of new cheesecake – here’s what we thought

Swiss chocolatier Toblerone has launched its own cheesecake.

The iconic triangular-shaped bar can now come in the form of a baked cheesecake, topped with Tolberone’s milk chocolate.

Available to buy in most supermarkets, the cheesecake consists of a chocolate flavoured biscuit base and is suitable for vegetarians.

Toblerone, which was founded in Switzerland back in 1908, are known across the world for their iconic bars, which come wrapped in tinfoil in a triangular shaped box.

The sweet treat is often bought as a Christmas stocking filler, although it can be bought all-year-round.

We decided to try out their new cheesecake to see if it would be as good as their indulgent bars.

But firstly, here’s what other shoppers thought of the cake.

What others think

Commenting on the Tesco reviews of the product, one shopper said: “If I was Toblerone’s manufacturer, I would be ashamed to have my name associated with this product.

“The chocolate did not taste a bit like Toblerone, the biscuit crumb base tasted stale and bitter. Not good.”

Another said: “This had no taste, couldn’t see how Toblerone pictured in it at all apart from a few almonds in the chocolate layer on top.

“Packaging said serves six but it was more like four and that wasn’t a big slice. Won’t be buying again. What a disappointment.”

Some didn’t think it was all bad though.

One Tesco shopper gave it five stars and said: “Best cheesecake ever!

“Very creamy, sweet just delicious.

“I’m so going to gain weight buying those every minute…puts GU yo shame – their chocolate is too dark and too bitter for me meanwhile this one is lovely and delicate.

“GU base is hard like a rock while this one is soft and lovely! Yum!”

What we think

Firstly, the Toblerone cheesecake comes frozen and requires a defrost in a fridge for around four to five hours.

I’m always dubious about frozen cheesecakes, other frozen desserts are fine, but I feel a cheesecake always needs to be that little bit fresher because of the biscuit base.

I’m a big fan of Toblerone; chunky chocolate, honey and almond nougat – what’s not to like?

When it’s spread over a cheesecake though it loses that fun element, the element of chewing on a piece, enjoying each bit of the rich peak shape treat.

Although the cheesecake topping certainly passes the indulgent factor and gives the same creamy and rich taste of Toblerone bar, it lacks one big element – moisture.

I found the biscuit base and cream cheese filling extremely dry.

I didn’t accompany the cheesecake with ice cream or cream as most do because I wanted to try out the cake on it’s own first but I wish I did.

The cheesecake came in a 430g pack which was shared between me and my family but I couldn’t finish my slice.

Verdict: Nice in an extremely small portion, the dryness lets it down, as does the shape.

If the Swiss chocolatier can make a cheesecake into a peak shape then they are onto a winner, if not they should just stick to bars instead.
