Terry's Chocolate Orange

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Roo1

    In our family its a kind of a tradition to give Terry's Chocolate Oranges to the kids as stocking fillers. I went in search for them yesterday and found them in abundance at the sweety shop at Hallett Cove Mall.

    However, I didn't buy ANY as they wanted..........wait for it........ $10 for one!!!!:mad:

     

    Come on people, $10! How much are they in the UK now? I do understand the price hike for shipping etc but come on, really?

     

    AND there was a tin of Quality Street there (highlighted as "from the UK"!!) They wanted $39 for it :wacko:

     

    If anyone knows where I can buy the T.C.O from at a more reasonable price. Please let me know.

     

    Ok, feel better now I've got that off my chest.

    Merry Christmas! Ba, humbug.........

    Coles, Woolworths, probably Foodland, IGA - unless you specifically want one that's been shipped over from the UK at inflated prices... They also sell boxes of the segments individually wrapped here....

    Just seen they have 2 for $4 on www.groceryrun.com.au

     

    Thanks, will tell the fiancé, she being Aussie doesn't see the point in them but I've had one every year for Xmas as long as I can remember, the sound of bashing one on the floor to break it into segments is music to my ears on Christmas morning

    Certainly miss some chocolate (I prefer dark and nutty myself rather than milk choc flavoured with orange) but I've lost 3 kilos since I arrived so I'm telling myself - "I DON'T NEED CHOCOLATE" and I'm sooo much better off without it (who am I kidding?)

    A note from Nestle regarding the availabilty of British products in Australia:

     

    Thank you for contacting us regarding Quality Streets

    Taste preferences of consumers can sometimes vary markedly between different countries hence, the NESTLE product range will vary from country to country.

    Unfortunately, this product is not available in Australia at this time. Consumer research has indicated that demand here would not be sufficient to warrant the importation of this product. Some specialty confectionary shops may stock it from time to time.

    Our product range is constantly under review and we will take your comments on board.

    Thank you once again for taking the trouble to contact us and for the interest you have shown in our company.

    Sincerely,

    Hannah Orlik

    FOOD ADVISER

    Can I just say that the Terrys Chocolate Orange is not English chocolate, its Polish! It just doesn't taste like it used to.

     

    Noticed a tin of Quality Street for sale for $30 in the Brackenberrys Sweet shop on James Place last week. It's probably out of date!
