Terry's Chocolate Orange - I Don't Get the Hype

Ask a Question

I tried it recently, and the packaging looks similar to a real orange, but I don't see the big deal. It's just chocolate that tastes like orange.

So, why does it get praised so much?

We all have different tastes. Terrys Chocolate Orange isn’t one I enjoy so you’re not the only one.

Although Dawn French made the advert funny by saying 'it's not Terry's, it's mine' I think this is one of the few chocolate options that really is for sharing. I like the chocolate but only a couple of 'pasties' worth. It is a matter of taste - I don't enjoy white chocolate but would happily nibble my way through a vast number of mint Matchmakers.

I really like the dark chocolate one....just like the taste, but also when it is on sale it is good value for money.

I have the same problem, as I can easily eat the whole thing in less than 10 minutes if I'm not careful. I like mine with a cup of tea πŸ˜‹ 🍊 β˜•

It's the brand name that makes it appealing to customers and good marketing strategies.

Whilst I do like it, I do certainly think it's overrated. There are many supermarket own branded orange chocolates which are just as nice if not nicer. The Aldi orange chocolate is better in my opinion.

The Terry's chocolate orange is way too overpriced for what it is as well as getting smaller and smaller in size.

I think it's a lot of good chocolate for a pound. It's slows me down having to break it apart. The main reason I buy is tradition, everybody in my family expects one in their Christmas stocking, especially if it has a knitted cosy on it.

I personally don’t like them that much but would eat it if there was no other chocolate available lol! A lad I used to work with bought a palette full to send back to where he used to live in Australia as they sell for roughly 10 dollars per orange, he only paid 75p per chocolate lol.
