My friend has given me a Terry's chocolate orange to take to work and share with my lovely colleagues. But I just can't do it. AIBU to eat it all my self?!!grin

YANBU and frankly I think your colleage is excessive in her expectations

Gifts should be given unconditionally.

You could drop it! You couldn't possible take it into work then could you!

Friend not colleague and typo blush

What a shame DH ate it!

Eat it all and share the love at work by smiling all day instead.

What kind of friend would expect you to share a chocolate orange shock That's just mad. Keep the chocolate orange. Get rid of the friend grin

Friend knows I hate nights and will often buy things for me to take into work. Usually jam donuts which he still doesn't remember that I don't like. It's very sweet really. He knows my colleagues give me a huge amount of support so he likes to buy treats.

Take it to work and share it.
The recipe has changed, and they are gross now!

Amethyst81 Sun 02-Oct-16 13:26:16

No you really can't share it! Is it me or do they seem loads smaller then when I was a kid? I could never manage a whole one then, or I am I just a greedy so and so?

Scoff the lot

Nuggy2013 Sun 02-Oct-16 13:36:57

What sort of individual expects chocolate oranges to be shared?!?!

GoofyIsACow Sun 02-Oct-16 13:37:02

Annie tell me that's not true confused sad

brasty Sun 02-Oct-16 13:37:03

Totally unreasonable.

IfartInYourGeneralDirection Sun 02-Oct-16 13:38:40

I had one on Monday and its changed - both the shape and the taste.

Is it milk or dark? If dark, YADNBU.

JellyBelli Sun 02-Oct-16 13:59:18

Some friend!
I'll take it off your hands, save you upsetting her.

Palm oil now involved since the Kraft/Mondelez involvement which gives chocolate that waxy texture. So take it to work, give it away and mourn the passing of another British chocolate that's been sold off and cheapened.

Wikipedia says "In 2016 (May 29) the UK product size was subtly changed from 175g down to 157g"

Sparklesilverglitter Sun 02-Oct-16 14:03:51

They aren't as nice since the recipe change op, so I'd happily share at work

Toddlerteaplease Sun 02-Oct-16 14:06:58

The segments have shrunk. sadangry

Branleuse Sun 02-Oct-16 14:10:05

oh god, have they gone the same way as dairymilk. Thats annoying

Nakatomi Sun 02-Oct-16 14:14:11

Considering the tagline was (probably showing my age here now!) "It's not Terry's, it's mine!" I don't think they expect you to share with anyone. That's my reason anyway... grin

Share it. As above, they're gone to crap. Very depressing.
