Cadbury Orange 
Posted: 17 January 2011    6.5 
Cadbury Orange The liberal amounts of artificial orange in Cadbury's acceptable Canadian-made chocolate blend work better in combo than many a posher orange chocolate bar I've eaten in the past.  Delicious/Délicieux is how it's phrased in politically correct form in Canada.

Do I have to mention AGAIN that I'm not fond of orange in chocolate?  There are two types of orange chocolate bars.  There's the kind manufactured by Whittaker's which places chunks of dried orange within the chocolate.  And then there are the ones where orange flavoring is infused within the chocolate.  Green & Black's Maya bar and Scarborough Fair's Organic Rapture fall into this category.     

The Canadian Cadbury Orange is of the second variety.  Toyboy Troy didn't gift me an entire bar.  His own appetite got the better of him and by the time it was handed to me, only a third of the bar remained. 

But like a Buddhist monk relying on the kindness of strangers, I, too, could not complain.  A third of a Cadbury Orange is better than none.  Toyboy Troy handed me the bar just before he, his girlfriend, I, and two other rowdy pals went off for an Isaan lunch.  I couldn't hold back and popped two squares into my mouth immediately.  The Toyboy was surprised at my eating "technique."  He prefers to suck on his chocolates until they melt in his mouth.  Okay, that technique might work with the Orange but it wouldn't fare very well with a nut bar.     

Sucking on a chocolate also doesn't tell you its true mouth feel.  You can assess the grittiness or chalkiness or waxiness fully by biting it.  And on that first bite, I was quite taken aback, in a good way, refreshingly pleased with how much I enjoyed it.  I'm assuming Cadbury Canada, like all Kraft-run enterprises the world over, prides itself on using the snappiest crappiest ingredients.  Ever try Kraft's macaroni and cheese?  I'm still shocked my parents allowed it to be fed to me as a growing child. The liberal amounts of artificial orange in Cadbury's acceptable Canadian-made chocolate blend work better in combo than many a posher orange chocolate bar I've eaten in the past. Scarborough Fair's organic orange bar couldn't compete with this one on flavor. And at this price point, orange lovers in Canada would be fools to stray too far from the Cadbury aisle at their local supermarket. Delicious/Délicieux is how it's phrased in politically correct form in Canada.
