Look what Tom, Lucy’s Scientist brother, has sent us to analyse …… only a Terry’s Volcanic Popping Candy Chocolate Orange – how brilliant is that? One of our five a day in volcanic popping form!
Darrell was a little trepidatious about trying it, never having had volcanic action in his mouth before …..
We unwrapped it very carefully as we didn’t want any unexpected popping off.
However our actions were unwarranted as the sticker (which Darrell bagsed immediately) said “Whack and Unwrap”
The orange broke into lots and lots of segments, so there was plenty to share with Lucy and Auntie Jan.
Darrell said that at first it tasted and felt very much like an ordinary chocolate orange segment, but, after a few seconds, he could feel a strange sensation of pinging and popping in his mouth between the back of his jaw and ears, accompanied by a sort of crackling noise in his ears.
We put our mouths by each others ears so we could hear the popping ….
I found that it was hard to laugh in a dignified fashion with popping and melting chocolate in my mouth, and I had to apologise to Darrell for the little bit that I accidently spat in his ear while having a giggling fit.
We liked the packaging of the orange very much as it had a word search on the back, where you had to find the names of three famous volcanoes ….. this kept Darrell very quiet for a very long time!
We would give Cadbury's Volcanic Popping Candy Chocolate Orange 8 out of 10, but would probably not recommend it as a gift for a sufferer of tinnitus.
