Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Terry's Chocolate Orange Golden Nugget Crunch Confirmed sighting: Terry's Chocolate Orange Golden Nugget Crunch
Posted: 23:07 Thu 06-Sep-2007. Price: 35p. Location: Newsagent, Ealing. Nutritional unusualness: Honeycomb flavour crunchy bits (10%).
Personally, I was hoping to hear more about the rumoured "some sort of toffee version", but until then "robertster's" found a product which hardly appears online at all, reporting: "The Chocolate Orange bars are rather good, especially with so many floating around priced at just 35p. This variant is just as tasty, but the crunchy bits aren't very strong tasting and don't seem to add much more than a different texture. Nice though."

...Incidentally, it sounds like Terry's Chocolate Orange cookies might be getting wider distribution - while, in other honeycombed hilarity: "Zeddy" describes these elusive Maltesers Ice Cream Bites (1.99, Tesco, Hamilton, Scotland, 40kcal per bite) as "15 balls of creamy ice cream with little crunchy pieces of Malteser in them. Nice and malty they are too. Maybe a touch pricey though." "rob" doesn't seem to have any photographic evidence of the 20p Cadbury Magical Elves he says he saw in Morrisons, Reddish, claiming "The bars are in the shape of elves, there is quite a lot of popping candy in them along with Cadbury's milk chocolate. They are quite nice actually." And, finally, "'Bits of rubber', eh? It's what was in the rubber before it became 'bits of rubber' that I think we should really be concerned about!" chuckles "Kuzzer" regarding the recent Maltesers and Revels recall - though Brent Cross Tesco seems to have taken advantage of any extra shelf space to roll out a full range of advent calendars and selection boxes, considering there's a mere 110 days left until Christmas.

Comment: what amazed me about these is how strong the honeycomb flavour is! interesting, but i am getting to the age where products like this just make me feel like my fillings have come loose. :)

Comment: Terrys minty Chocolate Oranges this year appear to be made with dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate - 'for a more intense minty experience'. The boxes are black instead of the previous mint green too. There's a pile of them in Sainsburys next to all the selection boxes and Christmas biscuits.

Comment: The Minty choc orange boxes are a dark green upon closer inspection, but I have to say the actual chocolate is not half as nice as the milk chocolate minty oranges we have had before from Terry's. Being made from dark chocolate this year, the taste is incredibly rich. You can't manage more than 3 or 4 slices at a time.

The Cosmic Toffee Crunch choc oranges on the other hand are really moreish and slice after slice will disappear into your mouth if you're not careful. Just like the equally very tasty Golden Nugget Crunch bar this thread is about in fact.

Comment: So this Christmas we seem to have an all-time record number of Choc Oranges variants to try. Six by my count. There's the standard milk chocolate and plain chocolate versions, the White chocolate 'Snowball' version [I've only seen this one in Woolies], the mint chocolate version [which is plain chocolate this year after a couple of years of being milk chocolate], the Cosmic Toffee Crunch [which is my new favourite], and I've just seen a load of the Zesty Citrus Choc oranges in newly redesigned yellow packaging for sale in Tescos.

Comment: is the cosmic toffee crunch orangey still, mhs? or just toffee (plus cosmic crunchiness)?

Comment: The taste is sort of caramel orange, with melt in your mouth tiny crunchy bits. Almost the same as the golden nugget bars spotted above.

Comment: oh, thanks! i think i would prefer it orange free, but i guess i will see! :)
