Fans of the iconic Toblerone chocolate bars have a lot of strong feelings about the candy’s latest update. The famous chocolate company has increased the gap between the triangular pieces of the chocolatey-nougat goodness.

According to the AP, the change “was necessary to cope with higher prices for ingredients.” Apparently Brexit is not to blame but “it comes as British food retailers have faced rising prices for imported goods due to the drop in the value of the pound since the June vote.” The bar now weighs in at 150 grams, down from 170, though the price and packaging remain the same.

Toblerone first announced the change last month, announcing the news on Facebook. “We carry these costs for as long as possible, but to ensure Toblerone remains on-shelf, is affordable and retains the triangular shape, we have had to reduce the weight of just two of our bars in the UK, from the wider range of available Toblerone products,” they wrote.

Social media was seemingly outraged by the change in their favorite chocolate guilty pleasure and made their thoughts heard on Twitter. Take a look at some of the reactions:

Social Media Reacts to Toblerone Shape Change

The unique chocolate bar first made its debut in 1908. Its “special recipe, triangular shape and instantly recognisable logo made it distinct,” according to their website. The bars contain Swiss milk chocolate, almonds and honey. The company celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2008.
