Terry's Chocolate Orange Pots of Joy Review

terry's chocolate orange pots of joy

Mondelez are cranking out new products at alarming speed right now, and the latest to join their ever-swelling range are these Terry's Chocolate Orange Pots of Joy. "Pots of Joy" are usually associated with Cadbury's, but since Mondelez also own Terry's it seems they've deemed it OK to add these to the range too.

They're described as "Smooth and creamy desserts made with melted milk chocolate with a rich orange flavour under-layer" and are currently on offer for £1 at Asda.

Like all Pots of Joy they're rather dinky little pots, so it's likely most people will eat two at once. Unless you're a hamster I suppose...

The chocolate upper layer tasted creamy and very smooth, although I would've liked more chocolate flavour. The orange layer however was a letdown...it just didn't taste right. It was too citrusy and sickly, and as a layer by itself just doesn't work. I don't really get why it's seperated from the chocolate layer as it kind of defeats the point of  "chocolate orange"... ie. chocolate AND orange blended together! It was almost like eating orange yogurt with a layer of chocolate on top. It just doesn't work.

Overall, I found these Terry's Chocolate Orange Pots of Joy disappointing. I was expecting to love them but they're rather sickly and don't work that well in practice.

    1. I'm definitely keen to know what others think :) Sometimes I wonder if I'm too harsh lol...but I really didn't enjoy these at all.

    2. i tried one of these yesterday and i was disappointed with it. it could have been great, should have been but it just didn't live up to what i was expecting. where was the flavour? it was so dull for want of a better word. good job i bought the white milky buttons version, now they make my taste buds sing.

    3. Yes the white ones are lovely aren't they! I see Cadbury are going to do some new "Layers of Joy" flavours soon - black forest and millionaires shortbread.

    5. Just had a Google of these and the Caramellionaire looks delicious - I'm liking that it features a white chocolate mousse!

  2. Well my excitement on seeing this title quickly turned to disappointment on reading your review! What a shame...although I still want to try them. It would be rude not to, right?

    Nice to know I'm a hamster as well ;)

    1. Definitely rude not to! You must have a lot of self discipline to eat just one of these ;)

    2. Haha well, to be fair, I only eat one pot but I combine it with at least one other snack (e.g. a chocolate bar!).

  3. This sums up my thought on the sweet market at the moment. "Pots of joy" stupid, name. Another kraft product. They already ruined cadburys. Their products are terrible quality, overpriced and full of ingredients like vegetable oil/fat.

    1. I'm getting sick of all this vegetable oil they put in stuff too, although to be fair all the big companies do it now including Nestle and Mars.
