Looks like Terry’s Chocolate Orange is no longer a Christmas season item! I’ve seen them in regular packaging for the rest of the year, but this is the first time I’ve seen them in packaging decorated for another holiday. Which, they did a really good job on, it captures the feel of Easter nicely with its colorful package and design to make the chocolate orange look like a decorated Easter egg.
The orange once out of the package is a regular chocolate orange though. No oblong egg shape for this one! I was a little perplexed by this at first, but then I realized it was just a candy re-packaged to look festive, like the Easter Reese’s and Kitkats.
If you ever had a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, you’ll know what to expect. First comes the pleasure of whacking the orange so the pieces separate. The the fun of eating it! It tastes the same to all the milk chocolate oranges I’ve had. The chocolate has that nice dairy twinge to it and is very sweet. The melt on the chocolate is extremely rich and smooth. The orange notes compliment the chocolate beautifully, which is what make Terry Oranges so addicting.
A nice addition to any chocolate lover’s Easter basket.

These are a candy entirely new to the market this year: Peeps Peepsters. I first say this bag and was confused at first. I had no idea what these things were. So I ended up buying a bag and taking them home to start a tasting session. I do have to commend the designers of the packaging for this candy. They did a marvelous job of keeping the look of the Marshmallow Peeps packaging and style into a bag candy. It feels Eastery and fun.
So, these Peepsters are individually wrapped in colorful foil wrappers in the bag. They’re a little larger than a Rolo. The base is about the size of a quarter and there chocolate has a peep stamped on the top. Again, the candy is very eye-catching.
They smell very sweet and marshmallowy for a lack of a better word. It’s a sweet smell with hints of vanilla and cotton candy.
So as you can see in the photo, these Peepsters have a interior of marshmallow. The chocolate walls are thick, and the marshmallow interior is rather small. The flavor of it, however, permeates throughout the candy. It has this wonderful, creamy vanilla flavor that blends beautifully with the smooth and sweet chocolate. So this candy has a very sweet flavor, so it’s not for everyone. But it does do a great job of blending chocolate, marshmallow together. It’s funny because you don’t really get marshmallow texture at all, just flavor. And it’s wonderful mix of chocolate/vanilla for the taste.
I’m a fan of these, and when I shared them with my boyfriend, so was he. So much so in fact that he’s finished off the first bag pictured here, and went out and bought another bag of the milk and one of the dark (yes, these come in dark chocolate too, and they’re also really good). I liked to have a few of these with a cup of coffee since they’re so sweet. So in short, big fan of these. Bravo Just Born.
