History of the Toblerone Candy Bar

Toblerone Bar has a rich history. In 1908, it was introduced by Emil Baumann and Theodor Tobler.

Emil Baumann, Theodor Tobler’s relative, devised the original recipe with milk chocolate, almonds, nougat, and honey. Theodor Tobler himself designed the triangular shape of the Bar. The name was also derived from Theodor Tobler’s name to pay him tribute.

It is also believed that Theodor Tobler got inspired by the triangular Matterhorn in the Italian Alps to make the shape of the Bar. Even a silhouette of Matterhorn can also be seen in the recent packaging of the product.

After a year of its invention, the chocolate brand got the trademark at the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property in Bern. The company was independent at first. But then it joined with Suchard, the producers of Milka, to form Interfood in 1970.
