    after eating the last of my xmas choccy, a thought struck me as to how they make choccy oranges. :dunno

    do they make the middle bit and get people to glue the segments around it?

    can anyone explain??

    well either, they make them in wedges, half cool them, then put them together so the bond between the segments is weaker, or there's a magical chocolate orange tree in Terry's back yard...

    I reckon they make the wedges just the right size so that when they assemble them there's a hole left down through the middle that they can squirt a plug of chocolate into to bind it all together. Might be total nonsense but that's what I think :D

    the chocolate funny shaped bit in the middle is best mmmmmmmm, as for how they make them....make a ball of chocolate, get a knife and cut while still warm. Thats my guess 8)

    They take an orange, coat it in chocolate, allow it to set then stick a needle in to burst the orange then remove it through a hole in the bottom, through which they then pum more chocolate. They then have a special machine to slice it up, then wrap and box them.

    Warning - the above may not be 100% of FACT.

    Can't do that, cos each segment has "Terry's" written on it. I say it's the chocolate fairy.
    On that subejct, Michelle, maybe you could make up with the other branch of your family and then you could produce special tMP chocolate?
    Chocolate trombone anyone?

    does it count if they roll off your face, onto the floor and then somehow make it back to your mouth through some wonderful law of physics known as:

    (hs=ea) to the power of infinity

    where h=hungry
    s=student
    e=eats
    a=anything

    Ah yes, but don't forget the three second rule!!

    (hs=ea)-3s

    where s=seconds
