Sweet musings

Bought a Terry's Chocolate Orange at the supermarket over the weekend, just because it was there. Couldn't decide between milk and dark, so got both. I used to see them on the shelves only during Christmas time.

When I broke into it, I was a bit surprised to see the Kraft logo on the corner of the box. I'd forgotten that they had taken over Terry's (and now Cadbury's too). It's a bit sad to see that the confectionery of my (colonial) childhood has gone American. But at least they haven't changed the packaging much, except for a tiny Kraft logo in the corner.

And maybe if it wasn't for American marketing, what used to be special Christmas time imports would be on the shelves all year round.

Oh how I love the chocolate oranges that you whack to split. I always took several to school at Christmas so the kids could have the fun of cracking them and then eating the slices. And yes -- it was a Christmas time treat. MGW
