Click pic to view comments International sighting: Terry's Chocolate Raspberry
Posted: 16:31 Thu 28-08-2003. Price: Unknown. Location: Florida. Sub-flavours: "Dark" (pictured), so presumably there's a "Milk" at least. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Daniel Strawson" reports: A friend has just come back from the US with one of these. It tastes nicer than it sounds - do you know if they are for sale in the UK? Perhaps, given the name, they are won't be.

...Interesting question Daniel - as far as Snackspot is aware, the (orange-sized) Terry's Chocolate Raspberry has never been seen "in the wild" outside the US, with Nestle's Wonka division being responsible for most of the raspberry-flavoured cocoa derivatives over here. But in other fruit-flavoured developments: The Grocer magazine reports that Divine Fairtrade have added 100g Milk Chocolate with Orange and Milk Chocolate with Coffee bars to their range, while stalwart Snackspot contributor "Alex" had the following to add on the subject of a Twix Choc+Orange he spotted the other week: A limited edition flavour of the Twix range. It doesn't taste all that different, but the orange caramel is a good touch. Tastes very much like a crunchy Terry's Chocolate Orange, and the Orange writing is in a similar style to Terry's. Perhaps they called it Choc + Orange, instead of chocolate orange to avoid a lawsuit. Good value for money, two long bars. They should make it a permanent fixture.

Comment: Chocolate raspberry (eaten in US) sounded OK, but was badly let down by poor artificial raspberry taste. V sad. We can get good r'berry flavour milkshake etc - why not chocolate?

Comment: Nestle came out with a - surprisingly edible - raspberry chocolate "Wonka W-egg" square creme egg a couple of years ago (with what appeared to be jam in the middle). But, as you imply, it couldn't have been that popular otherwise they'd probably still make it?

Comment: bob, if it's you posting these (somewhat non-constructive) comments, i'd advise you to stop it before i have to start blocking postings from "cache5-nrth.server.ntli.net"

Comment: I remember W-eggs.

If I remember, did they have nerds in?

Snackspot, are you implying its bob posting these comments, and pretending to be pop stars?

Comment: I'm not pointing the finger at anyone, I'm just offering a friendly warning before more serious "action" may need to be "taken"

(hey, it could have been someone else pretending to be "bob" all along!)

Comment: I don't understand, were bob and our special celebrity guests all posting from the same IP? I'd say that's pretty much Columbo-grade damning evidence!

Comment: Hey stuff happens - I haven't gone to the trouble of tracking down all the "Elton Johns" (because, after all, I only have the vaguest idea of who everyone else on the site might be - George Michael, for instance).

But in general I think it's been a useful lesson about polite behaviour so let's say no more about it, OK?

Comment: I was that friend. And I have to disagree with Daniel here - I think it sounds much nicer than it tasted...

Comment: Terry's Chocolate Raspberry dark is one of the most disgusting chocolate I have ever tasted. I love chocolate but this is not chocolate. It has some of the weirdess taste and texture I know of. And they sell it for 4.99$CAN +tx so over $5.70 for 175g. More expensive than great chocolate bars...

Only had 2 slices and it was way too much. Will throw away the rest.

Comment: At Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco I spotted an even rarer beast in an overpriced candy store - Terry's Chocolate Peppermint! It was a red and white striped affair and way over my price limit.

Comment: We tried those choc/raspberry things a couple of Christmases ago, and all hated them even though we love the combination of dark chocolate nad raspberry normally.

Comment: I had a Twix orange while I was in London four years ago. I have tried to find them in the US to no avail. Any hints on where I can find them? And will they ship to the US? Help!
Posted: 17:49 Wed 09-06-2004 by "charl" # permalink comment
Comment: unfortunately i think the twix oranges were limited edition. certainly not seen one in the uk for a very long time. speaking of which, i used to be able to get cookies-n-creme, chocolate fudge, and peanutbutter twixes in the states. do they still do any of those?
Posted: 18:17 Wed 09-06-2004 by "Phil C" # permalink comment
Comment: Yes, they do. Have a look on Cybercandy and they have peanut butter twix. Not sure about the other ones though.

Comment: Riley's chocolate raspberry oranges are, I've been told, a holiday item and should be readily available by November 1 in many supermarkets. I think they are GREAT!

Comment: Cybercandy never seem to have these in stock, does anyone know somewhere reliable to get them from?
