This mum saw the Toblerone bear for the first time and it turned out she’s not alone
For some people it’s always been there, the bear on the side of the famous Toblerone packaging.
For others, by all accounts, it’s a case of ‘I was today years old when …’ if the response to this mum’s tweet is anything to go by.
My son had his first Toblerone today. “What’s the bear for?”
Me: “what bear?”
I was today years old when I found out there’s a bear in the Toblerone logo. pic.twitter.com/CmwRO2BFww

Look! There it is! Never seen it before. But once you’ve spotted it, it’s impossible to ignore.
I had never seen that!!! Your son is brilliant!

You've seen the arrow in FedEx, right? The mom in Wendy's collar? the 31 in Baskin Robbins, the extra kiss in Hershey's Kisses, the chip dippers in Tostitos? Make it a game with your kiddo to see how many they can spot when you go shopping or on a car trip. Might be fun.

And in case you’re wondering …
Toblerone comes from Bern, Switzerland. Also known as the city of bears. 🐻 🇨🇭

I feel like a failure, I’m Swiss, lived in Bern, ate these all my life and never knew. Your son is amazing!

And this is what actor Samuel West had to say about it.
This is nice.
Population of (e.g.) USA: 325m
Proportion of people who know about the Toblerone bear when they’re born: 0%
Proportion who know about it now: maybe 50%
People who find out about it every day (estimated): 12 000
That’s a lot of fun revelation. Let’s celebrate it https://t.co/ScuLRwn0ln
