    So I was shopping today and saw this Toblerone. It was quite big.

    It weighs 4.5kg

    It was £50.

    Would this be a good present or is it too much and a waste of £50?

    I'm eating some Toblerone right now

    At tescos, a 400g bar is £4 and at some other places you can get it for around £2; but its not really about the money, its about the person.

    If that person is special then yeah go for it! If not just buy three (or more) different flavoured 400g bars, wrap it up and VOILA

    No I wouldn't justify spending that kind of money on food.

    Chocolate, regardless of price or quality is a 'lazy' gift in my opinion. Requires no thought or effort

    If you're going to spend £50 you can do way better than chocolate tho.

    It's not a waste of money but you could buy a lot more interesting things with £50. I'd still love to recieve this as a gift though.

    I wouldn't mind receiving a big toblerone as a gift..just not that one. The thought of it would probably put me off eating it altogether.

    When something is THAT big it becomes tedious to eat and just would not be enjoyable.

    E.g small bottle of lucozade tastes better than the massive one.
    Gummy bears taste better in normal size (small) than one humongous bear etc.

    Oh and for £50? Definitely not.

    Btw i am only commenting on it because it was next to normal stuff and then there it was on the shelf. I thought that's quite big and then saw it was £50. It's £64 on Amazon. It wasnt that big though. I was just a bit bemused by it. Actually thinking about it, then its a bit of a rip off.

    50x 170g bars = 8.5kg for the same price, but no novelty. £25 would have been a lot more reasonable.
