discworld cohen candy

Death by dragon teeth

I just got an email from amazon alerting me that they had Toblerone's back in stock. I had forgotten that I had even signed up for the email alert. Last month, they were having a sale on candy right before Halloween but by the time I found out about it, the only thing I might have wanted were sold out. Even though it didn't come back into stock before the coupon expired, I still couldn't help myself and just ordered a bunch of white chocolate and normal Toblerone's.

I've always felt sort of nostalgic about Toblerones. When I was a kid, they were only available in airports which means you almost never ran across them. They were rare and had a sort of mystik to them. It's different now, of course, but you still never seem them anywhere near as often as the ubiquitous Hershey bar.

As I was making my purchase, I stumbled over some flicker pictures:



That's apparently what a 10 lb toblerone looks like. It seems a bit extravagant at $90, but it would still be spiffy to have one. If you don't end up eating it, you could always beat someone to death with it.
