Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Terry's Chocolate Orange Minty Confirmed sighting: Terry's Chocolate Orange Minty
Posted: 19:25 Mon 19-Sep-2005. Price: 2.29. Location: Woolworths, Plymouth. Nutritional unusualness: 55g of fat per 175g "Orange".
"Magnetic Ham Sandwich" reports: Chocolate Orange varieties of the past - Milk Chocolate, Plain Chocolate, White Chocolate Snowball (yum!), Milk Chocolate Crunch Ball (with bits of 'Crunchie' in)... and for those with memories from the 1970s there was the lovely long lost Plain Chocolate Lemon. There was even a Chocolate Apple once upon a time according to Terry's website. But now we have the Chocolate Orange Minty to savour. There is nothing at all orange about this product apart from the round shape (confusingly, each minty segment still has the pattern of the inside of an orange on it like a regular chocolate orange. It's best not to look at it before putting it into your mouth.) The taste is delicious for lovers of mint chocolate though - just like a Mint Aero or a Mint Yorkie. Each segment melts in your mouth leaving a strong minty tang. Sure to be a big hit for the Christmas market which (look away now if you're a Turkey) is only 14 weeks away.

...More from "Magnetic Ham Sandwich" here, only overlooking the elusively American Terry's Chocolate Raspberry. And in other retro reworkings, "Sarah K" paid 39p for no ordinary Nestle Drifter on Upper Parliament Street, Liverpool, noting: This is the same old Nestle Drifter, good old fashioned toffee, chocolate, wafer topness... HOWEVER it is repackaged in the old school brown Drifter wrapper! I had forgotten this existed but seeing it took me back to my childhood - I wonder if this is to do with their retro ringtones/ relaunch promotion. I shall try and get a picture.

Comment: Had one of these today, it's very yummy. I think this must be one of the few mint flavoured chocolates out there. Aero is minty bubbles rather than chocolate, Cadbury's have mint chips, and After Eight is mint creme. Only thing letting it down is the unappealing packaging.

Comment: Are these the same as the peppermint/candy cane versions they have in the US over Christmas? They come in a red and white striped wrapper.

Comment: The latest Terry's Chocolate Orange advert is offencive to anyone who likes their chocolate but is not English. Perhaps they think that the UK is called England but the English are known to have their noses too close to their arses.

Comment: Im doing my A-level product study on Terry's, I saw the mint version in Woolies at start of september, the product is available nearly every where except newsagents and smaller outlets. Sainsburys has Terrys Orange range on offer at the moment (3 for 2) (excellent to try new flavour). Think my Dad has become addicted to mint where as i prefer the Orange orange. Packaging looks a tacky sickly green and doesnt do any justice. And 'mint orange' makes it confusing but people recognise Terry's chocolate orange as a quality product... who knows Terrys Minty Balls?

I suspect this is unlikely.

I wish my girlfriend had a minty [deleted], though.

Comment: Is Terry's no longer producing these? I haven't been able to find them lately, which is a shame, as I rather liked the mint flavour.

Comment: Look in Woolworths - failing that try Superdrug, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda or Sainsbury's.

Comment: It turns out my list of Choc Orange varieties above was missing at least one. There was a "Christmas Pud" flavour Chocolate Orange out for Christmas 2000, in browny-red packaging. It was billed as orange milk chocolate with a hint of Winter Spice flavour. I'd totally forgotten about it until I came across the empty box in one of my boxes full of different old sweet and choc wrappers.
