While those in the United States had their eyes glued to the news all day for some rather, ahem, important reasons, our neighbors across the pond had slightly different concerns. Toblerone, the Swiss chocolate maker that makes those impossible-to-crack chocolate mountains, announced today that they were now selling a lighter, newly-designed chocolate bar from now on in the UK due to “higher costs for numerous ingredients.” Essentially, what this means is that the little mountains got spaced further apart from each other.
Toblerone made the announcement on their Facebook page more than three weeks ago, but the new bars have started to hit the shelves today. And needless to say, people are. freaking. out.
Below, a round up of our favorite reactions from some less-than-pleased fans around the internet.

I always wished my name was ‘Toblerone’ so I could use the box on my desk at work as one of those fancy name plaques. #tobleronegate
