Terry's Chocolate Orange
"Whack It... Don't Tap It!"
This is one of the few indulgences that I enjoy. I'm guaranteed to get one or two in my stocking and I will usually buy one while I'm doing my Christmas shopping then I'm good for another year.
What I like about it? Well, it's orange flavored chocolate which is yummy. One or two wedges will do me all day. Hello, it's milk chocolate. What's not to love.
This delectable chocolate originated in the UK and used to only be available seasonally here but it has since become so popular it is available year round in many countries.
They make hilarious commercials (as you will see below) to promote it. One of my favorite involves a young chap sitting in his livingroom, bored and about to whack his orange (get your mind out of the gutter). He whacks his Terry's Chocolate Orange so hard that the lady in the apartment above falls through the ceiling with her tub where she's having a bubble bath (mind can return to the gutter). Totally cute and works with one of their slogans: "When you whack a Terry's Chocolate Orange, Good Things Happen".
Over the last few years they've come out with a few other flavors but I'm a purist and stick with the original chocolate orange.
If you haven't tried Terry's and you like milky chocolate then I highly recommend you try it this Christmas.
Below you will find 10 ways to eat your Terry's Chocolate Orange. Enjoy!
