Members of the European Merkel opposition have declared war on Toblerone after discovering that the chocolate is halal-certified, in a move described as ‘peak outrage’
USATimes Internet users called for a boycott of the popular triangular shaped chocolate bar after the Swiss tabloid Blick ignited the furore on Sunday by running a story titled ‘Toblerone is now halal’.
The storm gathered momentum when Jörg Meuthen, spokesman for the Alternative for Germany party posted about it to his Facebook followers on Monday. ‘Islamization is not taking place – neither in Germany nor in Europe,’ he wrote sarcastically alongside a picture of Toblerone.
Toblerone, a Swiss chocolate brand owned by US confectionery company Mondelēz International Inc., has always been halal because contains no meat or alcohol ‘It is therefore certainly pure coincidence that the depicted, famous chocolate variety is now certified as ‘HALAL.’
The recipe has not changed, but some eight months ago Toblerone’s factory in the Swiss capital Bern received halal certification. Halal means ‘permissible’ in Arabic, and is used to denote what is acceptable or unacceptable for Muslims under Islamic law outlined in the Koran.
Therefore Toblerone, a Swiss chocolate brand owned by US confectionery company Mondelēz International Inc., has always been halal because it contains no pork products or alcohol. Meuthen’s post was copied numerous times across social media platforms, with numerous people tweeting that they would never buy the chocolate again
