How much in love with Toblerone chocolates are you?

Probably enough to tear right into the packaging to get at the Swiss milk chocolaty goodness without inspecting the triangular box, right?


Consumers who are all too familiar with indulging in the imported candy are maybe a little too occupied with gorging over the contents to notice much about the packaging. And who could blame them?

The honey and almond nougat nestled inside the delicious chocolate covering is too scrumptious to delay devouring.

But they are also missing a surprise in the Matterhorn logo. If you have not noticed already, there is more to the Swiss mountain graphic than you realize.

According to Indy100, one kid made a discovery that is blowing Toblerone lovers' minds.


Do you see it?

Once you spot it, you can't really unsee it. There, on the face of the mountain, is a profile of a bear's body.

Here is a better look.


Those oblivious to the covert bear expressed their disbelief.

And they noted the keen observation powers of a younger generation.


People also recognized the child's artistic potential.


Those with a sweet tooth were less concerned about what is on the outside though.

And can you blame them?

Perhaps the most important question is did you know you can get Toblerone in four varieties: milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate and salted almond?

Here... take our money!

So what is the significance of featuring a bear on the logo of Switzerland's famous chocolate bar?

Turns out that the capital city of Bern—where Toblerone is produced—is synonymous with the Black Bear.


One legend as to how the city became associated with the bear dates back to the 12th century when the city's founder—Berchtold V, the Duke of Zähringen—captured his first bear during an aristocratic hunting expedition. Legend states the Duke vowed to name the city for the first animal he captured, thus Bern got its name and heraldic symbol.

But the story is merely legend and many other versions of how Bern came to be named exist.

Regardless, the Bern flag and coat of arms sport a bear to this day.

Although bears are not as abundant in the Swiss wild nowadays, visitors to Bern will see flags prominently displaying the animal on the buildings of local businesses.

Did you notice the hidden logo right away?

We bearly did.

But we had no problem finding where we could buy a variety box full of full size Toblerone in those four flavors.

Because... priorities.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
