There’s surely no flavour combination more festive than chocolate and orange.
And now supermarket Tesco has unveiled a range of chocolate orange Christmas treats that are making our mouths water.
Last year, a whopping 15 million chocolate orange-flavoured products were sold at Tesco over the Christmas period.
And, this year, fans of the classic flavour combo are in for a treat as Tesco launches a selection of festive products that have been crafted to perfectly pair the flavours.
Customers can pick up a host of chocolatey orange treats from indulgent orange-filled chocolate muffins to Free From orange cream cookies covered with Belgian chocolate and a delicious new chocolate and clementine cake.
The Tesco Finest Belgian Chocolate & Clementine Cake, priced at just £12, serves 14 and makes for a stunning festive centrepiece.
Each slice reveals three alternating layers of light orange and chocolate sponge, delicately sandwiched with a zesty clementine coulis.
It’s hand-decorated with luxurious chocolate ganache buttercream, and finished with bronze-lustred Belgian chocolate curls and chocolate rice balls.
It’s in store and online from November 25.
Caramel fans should head into store on December 16 for the scrummy Tesco Finest Caramel & Orange Torte, £8.
It features a spiced biscuit crumb layer topped with a baked orange mousse, filled with pockets of caramelised orange and a caramel glazed mouse, finished with chocolate decorations and white chocolate-coated shortcake pieces.
There’s also the Chocolate Orange Popcorn, £1.50, and the Enrobed Cookies & Cream pack of six chocolate biscuits filled with orange-flavoured cream, £2.
Chocolate and orange are perfect bedfellows. The rich creamy notes of the chocolate perfectly pairs with the sharp citrus notes of orange.
If muffins are more your thing, fear not, there’s also a two page of Chocolate & Orange Filled Muffins – a zesty Christmas steal for just £1.50.
A Tesco rep revealed: “Chocolate and orange are perfect bedfellows. The rich creamy notes of the chocolate perfectly pairs with the sharp citrus notes of orange.”
They added: “This Christmas, we wanted to offer fans of the classic flavour pairing more ways to enjoy by reimagining traditional favourites.”
