Where Toblerone comes from*

A recent blog post by a fellow Brit resident in Switzerland prompted me to head out into Bern. My goal for the lunchtime trip was a university building to the north of the railway tracks; a blue-painted building in the style common throughout the city, which dates to the end of the nineteenth century and whose original use is synonymous with the production of Swiss chocolate.
