Chocolate Orange Sticks

You can find these with the other boxed cookies and chocolates. They're dark chocolate covered orange gel candies. Each chocolate is approximately 1.5 inches in length. The gel center has the consistency ofSunkist Fruit Gels but are made with natural orange oil so they don't taste artificial. I bought these on a whim while shopping for fresh food supplies to stock up my dorm room. Keep them in the fridge or even the freezer for best taste ( I like cold crisp chocolate, not melting). They cost $2.99 for a 18oz. (1lb 2oz) plastic tub and are delicious. There are 150 calories in 4 sticks. Great for chocolate cravings: chocolate with a twist! A must for dark chocolate lovers like myself.

I find the chocolate coating to be too thick in relation to the gel. Too bad, because otherwise, these would be amazing.

Personally, I don't like gel candy, so when I buy them for my family, I simply suck the chocolate off, ha ha!But my husband and mom eat these ALL the time! My mom goes through a container a week!

These are good, as are the raspberry ones.

I'm not a fan of orange but love the raspberry. I like em best at room temp. The flavor really stands out better than when they're cold.

... these are amazing!! I *love* chocolate and orange together, and these were so much better than I expected. I usually don't like the gel candies either, preferring real candied orange peel covered with chocolate. The gel filling in these, though, has good, strong, not fake orange flavor. Hubby didn't think he'd like them at all and he was surprised at how good they were... now I have to hide them from him!!

I think these were one of the first things I ever bought at TJs years ago. The pineapple ones are tasty, too!

Prepare to abandon restraint once you open the box...these are not too sweet - but I find the chewy texture and combination of flavors really addictive.

Found out that our absolutely favorite snack is no longer being carried by TJ's.

The associates tell us that the manufacturer jacked up the price and TJ's said oh well "So long".

Is this true? Has anyone been able to purchase these?

Please Please come back!

I was not aware that these had been discontinued at some point last year, and for the first time in months I bought some of these today. As soon as tasted them, though, I knew that they're being made by another company now. the chocolate coating is much thinner and crumbles off easily, and the gel filling is WAY sour-- doesn't even really taste like orange. I don't know who at TJ's decided that this new version was a good replacement for what they used to have, but they really messed this one up. VERY disappointed.
