Terry's Chocolate Orange

Updated on March 22, 2013

"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!

      One or two wedges a day?? C'mon. I can eat a whole one straight off. I always have them for Christmas, never at any other time of the year. I put one each in the kid's stockings - they have a designated chocolate stocking, which I can raid whenever I want. And I always give myself a TCO. xx

      I don't think we have this in the US -- will have to check at World Market, which does carry some UK candies. I love the combo of orange & chocolate (that's one of the few choc-related things hubby & I disagree on...) and would really like to try Terry's Chocolate Orange. Your idea of baking a slice of it into the center of a c. chip cookie is especially appealing.

    • Swisstoons profile image

      Thomas F. Wuthrich 6 years ago from Michigan

      Didn't Droste, the Dutch milk chocolate company, originate the milk chocolate orange? Or was Terry's come first? I remember enjoying the Droste version each Christmas when I was a kid...a couple of centuries ago. :)

      [in reply to JaguarJulie] It depends where you live. In some places it is just available at Christmas and New Years. And in others, like here it's available all year round except more expensive than at Christmas or New Years. I checked the Amazon link last in Spring and they had restocked. It was a good price, something like $3 a ball. Keeping watching!

      Wow! I had never heard of this delectable treat -- and really love that Harrison Ford-like commercial. I see that Amazon has listed this as "Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available." So, this is only available at certain times of the year? How much should I expect to pay for it. I want to try it! Yumm.

      [in reply to Doug] You can likely order them out of Canada. Anywhere you'd find chocolate being sold they're there during the Christmas rush, starting about October right through to December. Wal-Mart, grocery stores, pharmacy's, etc. They're very popular in Canada. I don't know a person who doesn't get one in their Christmas stocking.

      Sometimes you'll find them for Valentine's Day and Easter too. Not sure if this helps, but it might, so there you go. :)
