If you hadn’t already noticed, chocolate orange is having a moment.
Long gone are the days when flavours such as mint choc chip or sea salted caramel dominated our afternoon cravings; as the evenings get darker and Christmas approaches, we’re on the lookout for all the chocolate orange flavoured treats we can get our hands-on.
What started with the beloved Terry’s Chocolate Orange (a firm favourite among the Stylist team) back in 1932 has evolved into a trend which is taking over the food industry in 2020.
These days, there are few products which don’t have some sort of chocolate orange spin-off, and they’re flying off the shelves in their droves; Cadbury’s Orange Twirl, which first went on sale as a limited edition release in September 2019, was so popular that the brand held a presale event when they returned to the shops again in August this year.
And chocolate bars aren’t the only products getting a chocolate orange inspired twist in 2020, either.
You can now get everything from chocolate orange coffee to chocolate orange gin – and as the festive period approaches and more seasonal treats are announced, it’s likely we’ll see plenty more chocolate orange-inspired products hit the shelves.
With all of this in mind, we thought we’d take a look at some of the most exciting chocolate orange treats on the market for Christmas 2020, to give you some extra foodie inspiration for this year’s festive period.
