    You guys got gifts All I got (after the wife's frantic texting in the kitchen, totally forgetting that her phone texts her back after each message with the balance, and I could hear it) was 3 phone calls

    No. Never heard of Toblerone.

    Is it expensive?

    Did a Google on it and it sounds great having real Swiss Chocolate.

    Have to send Kraft a few inquiring letters.

    Like.....HOW COME????

    Not hugely.

    Very nice, though!

    I am surprised that you cannot buy it in the US. We here in Canada can buy it - not cheap!!

    According to this, it should be readily available. This came from some kind of Q&A site:
    Everywhere. They sell it in the check out places in Walmart and Stop and Shop and everywhere like that. It's in a yellowish triangular box with TOBLERONE printed right on the side.
    This place is in California and I bet it IS expensive, like that San Francisco stuff whose name I can't spell (starts with a G):

    Thanks Al,
    I have seen it here in the Greater Seattle are for many years, just never tried it out. I guess next time I see it, and the wife is NOT with me, I will have to buy some

    I think you are unlikely to be disappointed.

    Have a close look at the logo, the one that looks like the Matterhorn. Can you see the bear? It's one of those things that nobody notices, until they are told - then they can't see anything else.

    Enjoy

    He appears to be dancing, or skating, or something like that.

    Reminds me of my own experience with the FedEx logo. Until someone told me to look hard, I had never noticed it, as many of their trucks as I see daily! Once I saw it, I now see nothing else...
