THESE ARE NOT ORIGINAL - the cheap ones always have less segments

Really? They look the same size to me, and actually in what way do you mean not original? It's a Terry's Chocolate Orange, not a fake one, so best not to SHOUT!
These weren't cheap originally, they've just been reduced to 99p as part of their 30th Birthday.

They have stores throughout East Anglia, but also Boston, Aylesbury and an odd one in Wrexham!.You can also visit their online store QD Stores, but you won't find items like this on there.If you can get to one, they offer a bit of everything really, and usually have a range of ex 'High Street' store clothing at very good prices, jeans for a £5/£6 etc.Hope that's useful

Maybe, but that's not very helpful, the point of this website is so that people like me can tell others where that 'somewhere' is.

My mum used to work in their factory and she used to be allowed to take home 'rejected' ones for free (wrong shape, wrong ingredients, wrong size, missing etc). Then some bright spark at the company decided to sell them to discount stores and pound shops instead.

Fair enough, you must be sick of eating these things.
Can't say I'd notice though, and tbh if I've paid 99p, I'm not going to worry too much if I've lost a few segments.However, I would be worried if I'd paid £3.25 as someone mentioned and the only difference is I've got a couple of extra segments ...see what I mean? I could buy 3 of these (actually I got 5!) and still have change.;)

Yeah but i don't get sick of eating them. Fun Trivia, my mum was told they don't use any real orange in them! or anything related to orange, so thats why they had to shape it like an orange in order to keep the name after they got sued for false advertising.

I know man! my ideal 5 a day: chocolate orange/jaffa cakes, strawberry bon bons; pear drops: cherryade, opal fruits

dunno

i believe it was a flat bar similar to dairy milk. they tried using marmalade filling inside the chocolate before they decided to change the shape.

I heard they closed their store in Colchester last month as they could no longer afford the rent
gazette-news.co.uk/new…nt/

From their store finder, they've not opened another one there. Nor is there one in Chelmsford.

But all is not lost, there's still one in Clacton!

I think that tells you the type of store, and their target market, we are dealing with here.


Edit: Apparantly, the “large national company” that outbid QD on the rent was PoundLand, which already has two stores in the town oO
