I’m one of those crazy people who gets super excited for pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and pumpkin everything 😀 So in celebration of Fall, I had to share one of these chocolate oranges. I saw this for the first time last Fall and loved the combination of chocolate with pumpkin spice.
Several years ago I was introduced to the plain milk chocolate orange by Terry’s. I hadn’t seen a chocolate that was packaged in this form, and it’s pretty fun to smash to break apart the pieces before unwrapping! Though sometimes I had a hard time getting the thing cracked apart and then I’d end up frustrated throwing the ball of chocolate around until I could get a few pieces broken off 😛
I really like this chocolate, but nowadays it might be a tad too sweet for me. Otherwise, it’s a unique combination that’s perfect to have with a pumpkin spice latte in one hand, and a slice of this chocolate orange in the other 🙂 If this were available in dark chocolate, I’d definitely want to try it and see if there’s a more equal balance in spice vs. sweetness.
I’m surprised I haven’t found much for chocolate + pumpkin spice combos 😛 If anyone knows of any, please let me know so I can find it and try it!
