Have you seen a Toblerone in a light blue packaging?

I guess it isn't as well known yet because when I browsed about this, I've seen only a few articles and pictures of the LIGHT BLUE TOBLERONE: CRUNCHY ALMONDS.

From Wikipedia, this is what they say about Toblerone!!!

Toblerone (play /ˈtblərn/German: [tobləˈroːnə]) is a chocolate bar brand owned by Kraft Foods, who acquired the product from former owner Jacobs Suchard in 1990. It is well known for its distinctive prism shape (triangular prismor pentahedron).
Toblerone was created by Theodor Tobler (1876–1941) Bern, Switzerland in 1908. Theodor Tobler together with Emil Baumann (Theodor Tobler’s cousin) developed a unique milk chocolate including nougatalmonds and honey with a distinctive triangular shape. The product's name is a portmanteau combining Tobler's name with the Italian word torrone (a type of nougat). The image of a bear is hidden in the Matterhorn mountain symbolizing the town of its origin.
The triangular shape of the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps is commonly believed to have given Theodor Tobler his inspiration for the shape of Toblerone. However, according to Theodor's sons, the triangular shape originates from a pyramid shape that dancers at the Folies Bergères created as the finale of a show that Theodor saw.
Theodor Tobler applied for a patent for the Toblerone manufacturing process in Bern in 1909.[3] The Toblerone brand was trademarked in 1909, at the Federal Institute for Intellectual Property in Bern.
The Tobler company was independent for many years. In 1970, it merged with Suchard, the makers of Milka, to become Interfood. A merger with the Jacobs coffee company in 1982 created Jacobs Suchard. Kraft acquired the majority of Jacobs Suchard, including Toblerone, in 1990.

Since the 1970s, other variants of Toblerone have been produced. These include:
Plain chocolate: (dark chocolate) in a green or black triangular box
White chocolate: in a white triangular box
Snow-Capped: editions with white chocolate peaks, also in a white/silver triangular box
Filled editions: milk chocolate with a white chocolate centre (blue triangular box)
OneByOne: individually wrapped triangular chunks
Toblerone Pralines: released in 1997, a single peaked version in the distinctive yellow packaging
Fruit and Nut: in 2007 with a half purple triangular cardboard box
Honeycomb crisp: with a half white box with honeycomb pieces pictured on it
Crunchy Almond: with honey and almond nougat and salted caramelised almonds
Berner Bär: 500 g (18 oz) milk chocolate bar, with a relief portrait of the Bernese Bear and the Coat of arms of Bern on its face. The only non-triangular Toblerone.[5]
Toblerone Tobelle: Toblerone thins in a yellow triangular box

This is the white Toblerone in a pack of 6.

Here is the NEW TOBLERONE!

The lady in the store said this was a new offering in their store, about 5 months ago,  probably early 2012.

Anyway, since I love almonds (and other nuts for that matter!) in my chocolates, then I really love this one, too!  One proof is: I decided not to give away all of these... had to leave some for myself!

This is how it looks when I opened it.

Though, I wanted to bring more, I was already worried about my baggage allowance so had to control the urge to buy more!

I hope I can see more of these!!!
