The inventor of Toblerone, Theodor Tobler, was thinking of the legs of dancers which form a "V" when they are kicked high. He also modelled the colour of the packaging after the colourful clothes of burlesque dancers. Has come it to mind during visit to the Parisian cabaret « Folies Bergère ». "Toblerone" turned out from a combination of surname Tobler and italian word Torrone in translation meaning honey-almond nougat.

Look ma, no tables!
I've managed to rebuild the whole design without using tables for HTML layout. This wasn't as easy as it sounds, because the whole site's layout is liquid and made with semitransparent png images. Added a javascript viewer script for full-size images.
There is a small bug with shadows in IE7, but I'll fix it as soon as I find out its cause.

A recent decision of "Krasnyj oktjabr" factory management was accepted to declare a competition between muscovites through the newspaper « Evening Moscow » on a photo of a girl for a new "Aljonka" chocolate package, gathering a lot of responses with photos, some of that had even been used for a short amount of time.
In fact, an existing image on "Aljonka" chocolate has been taken from a photo of the designer's daughter who had been working at factory and took a part in development of design of packing.

"Czech Republic and Slovakia were since 1918 to 1989 two parts of one state called Czechoslovakia. In the Czech republic there were following chocolate factories - ORION (located in Prague), ZORA (located in Olomouc), SFINX (located in Holesov) and MARYSA (located in Rohatec). At the Slovak territory there were two factories only - FIGARO (located in Bratislava), DEVA (located in Trebisov). All these companies were owned by state, of course. In 1989 there were some political changes in Europe and great companies entered into our
economy. Czech factories were bought by NESTLE and the current owner of Slovak factroy FIGARO is company KRAFT. Slovak company DEVA was bought by Belgian firm LEONIDAS and it makes no chocolate, but pralines only" writed Peter Krnac - collector of chocolate wrappers from Slovak Republik.

Hi! New wrapper from Finland - Karl Fazer exclusive thin white. My head goes around from tasty chocolate :)I have received pleasant surprise from softness of the Belgian chocolate from Ruokakesko Oy (Finland). It is very difficult to estimate taste of ecological chocolate from England, reminds taste of soap a little:)- Plamil Foods Ltd. Compare this chocolate to turkish chocolate (Ersa), it is very difficult to find distinctions. We shall notice only the same taste of alkali in a mouth. It is difficult to get rid of an originality of taste of diabetic chocolate (Canderel), but we know, that such type chocolate is necessary for much of us. I wish to note a good sign the Swiss dark chocolate of firm Chocolat Bernrain AG. Magic fluffy oil of cocoa thaws in a mouth and leaves a pleasant shade bourbon vanilla extrakt.

There is an old good QA saying: "Why do you call this build beta? -Coz it's beta than nothin'".

So, this is a beta version of a new site engine. I've tried to keep an old design for those of you having old/slow/buggy browsers. Hopefully, all irritating bugs and cosmetical issues would get fixed soon.

Chocolate wrappers which have recently acted on the market from Finland and Sweden were added. Finland- Fazer "Dumle" Very tasty chocolate, but percent of the containment creamy toffee could be more. Finland- Tuko logistics Oy and one of their commodity brands Eldorado. Chocolate was rather mediocre, but the whole nuts have pleased me, they were high quality. Sweden - Kraft Foods Sverige, Marabou "Daim" - soft and unforgettable taste of a milk chocolate of this factory once again will please you, and also small caramel pieces will organically be entered in a flavouring picture of the given chocolate.
