Terry's Chocolate Orange
Advantages: Amazing appearance
Disadvantages: Lack of texture
Terry's Orange is a product from Kraft, and is basically a chocolate orange!
There are several variants of Terry's Orange... They come in balls (original variety), bars and segments (called Segsations)... anyway, I will be reviewing the actual whole chocolate orange ones... sorry about the vagueness- do they have names?
They also come in a range of flavours- milk, orange, mint, tangy, hazelnut and many more. I will be reviewing the original milk chocolate orange variety.
The chocolate orange is foil wrapped (colourful metallic foil!) and placed into a thin card box with a clear plastic window in it so you can see the egg. The name and logo is clearly printed on the front with the iconic Orange font. It is a simple and effective packaging that is easily recognisable and great for Easter (despite it not being an egg- it is round though!!)
~~~APPEARANCE TASTE AND TEXTURE~~~
Unwrapping the chocolate orange, it is a whole ball of chocolate- no hollow gimmicks, just a whole load of chocolate segments with the flesh of the orange imprinted on the side. It looks very much like an actual orange, as the central pith is there in chocolate as well!
Not only does it look realistic, unique and gourmet-like, it tastes great too! It isn't difficult to break off the segments, and it has a rich orange flavour. The smooth milk chocolate is not overpowering, nor is the orange flavour. It is just the right balance. I have to say, one Terry's orange tends to last me a couple days- there is quite a lot there which is good!! It is good for sharing!
It also has quite a nice orange smell!
It costs £2 at Sainsbury's, but you can usually get these on offer a short while after Easter; that's when I usually stock them!!
I love Terry's Orange- they are genuine, wholesome and indulgent. I love the originality and the realism of the chocolate orange- the attention to detail is really superb! They taste great and the balance of chocolate and orange flavours is good- and has a smooth texture. The only criticism is perhaps a lack of texture- having tried their other varieties, it seems like a bit of texture be it mint chunks or chopped nuts really do elevate this to another level. Nonetheless, an amazing chocolate for sharing!
Summary: A lovely chocolate for sharing!
