Terry's Chocolate Orange

Post by poodlek » Mon, 19 Dec 2011 2:09 pm

Where got? I know they are available here as I saw some approximately last May. Traditionally this has been a once a year Christmas treat in my family, but now that Christmas is here I can't find any. Anybody seen them recently??

NTUC used to stock them....... I went so far as to buy 10 a week from the ones in Pasir Ris ( Downtown East and White Sands) , sadly it wasn't enough to keep the store manager interested in them.

I haven't seen any in Singapore for ages.

If you spot them again , please post where you found them as I too would like a Chocolate Orange Christmas.

Mustafa centre sell them. I saw them a few weeks back.

I can't remember whereabouts and on which floor; you're gonna have so much fun asking someone to help you find them!!

Cue gormless looks.......

Mustafa sell them most of the time - not just at Christmas. I've seen them in Cold Storage too lately - the ones at Centrepoint and Paragon.

I also got Minstrels at Centrepoint CS :)

Cold Storage / Mustafa it is then ........

Mustafa's is a good excuse to get a Christmas curry in as well, nothing like the traditional British Christmas. :D

Just came back from Mustafa: NO DICE :-( I did manage to get a package of individual segments of various flavours...not quite the same if you don't have to whack it before you unwrap it ;-)

Is there another section of Mustafa other than the giant candy emporium on the main floor where they might be found??

Also checked Guardian/Carrefour at Plaza Singapura...still on the hunt.

My local CSs don't have them, neither do any candy store or drug store in VivoCity or Harbourfront Centre. Guess a trip up to Orchard is next.

I saw them in Cold Storage@Causeway Point (Woodlands) for around $7. I think they were £4.50 for three in WHSmith last year in England.

Sister in law reports TCO's at Bugis Junction Cold Storage at $3!

p.s. Px sounds a bit good to be true. Maybe on offer or something?

$3?? That's highway robbery! The time has passed, but I might still check it out at that price...

Will go and investigate tomorrow. $3 is less than NTUC used to charge.
