Chocolate and orange doesn't seem like they would go together. Both have very unique flavors. Chocolate is rich, creamy and sweet. Oranges have a sharp tart, sour taste, sometimes they can be bitter. Pairing these 2 flavors together are amazing, they play off each other very well.

Not only is this pop packed full of vitamin C but by using the zest I have amped up the flavor and added antioxidants this pop is not only yummy but good for you.

My girls looked at me like was crazy when I told them I was going to mix chocolate with orange. They both moaned and said I'm not trying that. When I tried one I instantly loved it. The flavors reminded me of the chocolate orange candy my parents friends would give us for Christmas. You know the kind that you would smash open and it would make orange slices. I was so happy that I was able to recreate that flavor. The richness of the chocolate and the sweet tartness of the orange is a win in my book, as for my kids they didn't like them one bit thought the chocolate was good but the orange was too much. Guess I'll be enjoying them all by myself.
