These don't seem to exist this year, I've seen a bag of segments in poundland but no actual oranges anywhere. Anyone seen any recently?

Loads in B&M today for a pound.

Also Tescos. I need to buy more as DH and DS have already eaten the first lot.

I'm pretty sure most supermarkets sell them! My local Lidl had a huge stand of them by the front door last time I went in. Tesco Asda Sainsburys Co-op etc should all have them.

I've bought them from Tesco. So far, only seen Sainsbury's stocking the dark chocolate one.

Poundshops and Tesco. In Ireland there are plenty of them the price seems to have gone up big time.
I love Terry's segsations too tho. Not the mini bags but the proper box with full sized segments and they come with all different flavours in the box

Yep in most supermarkets and B&M the co-op have nets of little chocolate oranges which are the size of a small satsuma.

I had one a couple of weeks ago and was really disappointed. Thinner segments and strange texture. I don't like them anymore and I'm very sad about it

Tesco - end of the aisle discount.

I was incredibly excited to discover that Morrisons sell the dark chocolate variety - haven't been able to get hold of it for about 4 years! The milk chocolate one is just wrong, and don't even get me started on mini bags.

Oh no, I've got six one in the cupboard that I was looking forward to.

Slight addiction problem.

Yea they've been befouled by the palm oil. Dd tried one recently it's one of the very few choc/sweet things she likes, has said don't bother getting her one for Christmas unfortunately I know mum has already got her one and is really chuffed sad

They’re everywhere & are costing one English pound

Justmuddlingalong Tue 12-Dec-17 18:51:30

They're more like chocolate satsumas now.

Our local Tesco is selling them but for two pounds, needless to say I did not buy one.

I got 2 from Wilko for £1 and saw loads in Tesco today for £2.

I refuse to buy them ever since they went odd. Part of the joy of a chocolate orange (preferably dark) was the way the segments had sort of been melted onto a central core - the twisty malformed core was one of the best things about it. You had to sort of snap them off one by one...

none in any of our local supermarkets . We only have Tesco & Waitrose though neither particularly big

littlecabbage Tue 12-Dec-17 21:12:56

Ugh, they taste really fatty and cheap. My MIL got them for my husband and I the first year we got together and we pretended we loved them. We have got one each every Christmas since then (now 17 years later)!

My local Sainsbury's stock both the milk and dark ones all year round.

The middle bit was always the best bit. They just aren't the same any more. I can still inhale one in about 10 mins though blush

99p in Lidl!

DrHarleenFrancesQuinzel Tue 12-Dec-17 21:51:16

I miss the popping candy ones. Not been out for a couple of years now.

DenPerry Tue 12-Dec-17 22:03:08

I think my mum has bought them all. She gets us all one every Christmas but buys them in November, then keeps eating them and buying them again several times before giving them to us! grin
