I really have to start learning to read all of the fine print on candy wrappers. I read the first line in the fine print and it said "tryffelitaytteinen maitosuklaa". I figured that the translation was something about truffles and chocolate. I wasn't completely off, but three lines lower it says "milk chocolate orange flavoured truffle". The orange flavour came as a bit of a shock to me, so much so that I even denied that I tasted orange at first.

I guess that says a lot about how powerful the orange flavour is. It didn't hit me like a ton of bricks, but instead was a nice subtle addition In fact this might be the first time I've ever tasted an orange chocolate where the chocolate flavour dominated over the orange flavour. The problem is, I still don't really like synthetic orange flavour mixed with chocolate, so no orange might have been better than even a little.

On the plus side the chocolate was smooth, the truffle cream was also smooth, and the chocolate flavour that I did taste was good. While I understand how chocolate and orange can work together, I just can't seem to enjoy these "orange flavoured" chocolates.
