Orange blends with chocolate so well. It is one of the most popular flavour combinations, as you can see with Terry's Chocolate Orange, Lindt's Excellence 70% Orange Bar, and Montezuma's Venezuelan Milk with Orange Oil.
So what could be better than orange flavoured chocolate? Why a fresh orange, enrobed in chocolate of course.
Demarquette have Luxury Chocolate Orange Slices are £9. Five sliced segments of orange are coated in a thin layer of their triple gold award winning 71.1% CacaoLux house blend of chocolate from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Madagascar.
There is hardly any sweetness to this, creating a deep, dark, but by no means bitter taste. The chocolate flakes off and melts slowly on the mouth.
Although available all year round, they seem particularly appropriate as a stocking gift for Christmas.
