For years, the Terry's Chocolate Orange has been a staple treat for Brits - the ritual of bashing the sphere onto a hard surface to break up the segments being the stuff childhoods were made of. But now there's a new orange on the block, and this one's made of white chocolate. Yep, Terry's has announced that the time has finally come for a white chocolate edition of its beloved Chocolate Orange, and we are very much here for it. Similar products have been around intermittently since the early 2000s, including the short-lived 'Snowball', but they've often remained pretty elusive for chocolate fans. Breaking the good news on its Instagram page, Terry's wrote: "It's less than 130 days until Christmas so we've got an early present for you...
The post said the treat would only be around for 'a limited time only', adding: "Sorry." Credit: Terry's Terry's has been teasing the new treat for a while now, knowing full well our interest had been piqued. "Something big, round, delicious and snow-coloured is coming," Terry's hinted earlier this month, with a mysterious blurred photo. Another teaser said: "Something special and chocolatey this way comes. Chocolate Orange lovers were delighted by the announcement, with one commenting: "This has made 2020 bearable!!! I have been waiting years for this!!!" Someone else wrote: "Ok, this is too exciting." Another added: ""A limited time!!!
These would be a great seller." As well as the full size orange, Terry's has also released White Chocolate Orange Minis, which you can find for £2 per pack in Co-op stores across the UK. It's very nearly September - and you know what that means? It's almost Christmas. And as an early festive gift, Terry's Chocolate Orange is doing its best to turn around 2020 by launching a limited edition white choccie orange range. This is the Friday news we've been waiting for... Making the announcement on its Instagram page, Terry's wrote: "It's less than 130 days until Christmas so we've got an early present for you... THE WHITE BALL IS BACK!* "Go out and grab two, one for yourself and one for a friend. You fiendishly fine friend, you. Sorry." As well as the full size orange, Terry's has also released white Chocolate Orange Minis, which you can snap up for £2 per pack in Co-op stores across the UK. The white choccie oranges are around for a limited time (Credit: Terry's Chocolate Orange/Instagram) There have been whisperings that the white chocolate orange had made a return all week. Some loyal fans were adamant that they'd already spotted it on supermarket shelves, and it's fair to say Terry's had dropped more than a few hints. Earlier in the month they posted: "Something big, round, delicious and snow-coloured is coming. "But we can't tell you what it is yet. Can you crack the Da Vinci-strength code?" Hmm, we wonder what they could have been talking about... And in another teaser, they wrote: "Something special and chocolatey this way comes. Set your mood to hysterical. Book the whole of August off work. Prepare for Terrymania." And fans are so excited by the news, with one planning on stockpiling a stash. "The big ones are coming out... but only for a bit. Stockpile?!" They wrote, tagging a pal. "This has made 2020 bearable!!! I have been waiting years for this!!!" Added another. Others said they planned on making Terry's White Chocolate Orange blondies (drool) while some took to the post to vent their anger that the oranges will only be around for a limited time. "A limited time!!! These would be a great seller," one fan pointed out. Advert While it's expected the chocolate oranges will be stocked in major supermarkets, we've heard they're currently available in B&M and larger Co-op stores.
