When it comes to finding sweet treats in your stocking, there are a few must-haves over Christmas.

From a Terry's Chocolate Orange to some Quality Streets, some foods are just as synonymous with the festive season as Santa Claus himself.

But one of the most popular chocolate bars people get given as a gift are Toblerones.

The triangle-shaped chunks of chocolate made with honey and almond nougat and are a familiar sight over Christmas - but one mum has just discovered something she never knew about the sweet and it's left people stunned.

A Twitter user called Stephanie shared her revelation on social media on December 27.

She said her nine-year-old son had just tried his first ever piece of Toblerone and afterwards he became inquisitive about the packaging.

The incredibly observant youngster spotted a hidden image in the Toblerone logo and honestly we can't believe we've never noticed it before.

Upon closer inspection it becomes clear that there isn't just a mountain printed on the chocolate box - there's also a bear in the two-tone logo, which is stood up on its hind legs.

Stephanie wrote in her post: "My son had his first Toblerone today."

To which, a little taken aback, the mum replied: "What bear?"

She added: "I was today years old when I found out there's a bear in the Toblerone logo."

Stephanie went on to explain that the reason for the bear is simple, as Toblerone bars come from Bern in Switzerland, which is "also known as the city of bears".

Thousands of others were also surprised by her son's discovery and the tweet quickly went viral, amassing over 28,000 likes and 6,700 shares.

One person commented: "I have never seen that!!! Your son is brilliant!"

Another said: "Eating them for 50 years never noticed that, your lad's a genius, in my defense the wrapper is the last thing I'm thinking about when I get one."

A third proclaimed it was "probably the most interesting thing" they had learned in 2018.
