I reviewed one of the other products from this line of long-life Cadbury desserts back in September -the split pot with fudge pieces- and I mentioned at the time that I'd like to try the chocolate orange version. I think I meant the one with orangey bits on the side, but in any case its taken me this long to buy any of range again.
Once the lid was removed, the silky smooth chocolate dessert was revealed. It had a glossy sheen to it, but as with many of the other Cadbury's desserts (such as the duo mousses), the meagre sized pot was only two-thirds full. The orangey element didn't come from a separate layer as expected, but instead was blended into the chocolate.
It tasted gloriously rich and indulgent, with a strong orange flavour that gave the flavour a welcome extra zing. The firmness made it feel like eating ganache, and if you can imagine eating a melted (Cadbury's version of) Terry's Chocolate Orange you'll get the picture. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but despite its richness, I wasn't satisfied after finishing my pot- the size simply was far too small.
