Brits horrified by TikToker's method of biting into a Terry’s Chocolate Orange

Brits horrified by TikToker's method of biting into a Terry’s Chocolate Orange

A woman from New Zealand has successfully ostracised herself from the entirety of the United Kingdom for her technique when consuming a classic British treat.

TikToker Jazz Thornton (@notjazzthornton) decided that she’d make a lovely funny video sharing her first experience eating a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, but had no idea that everyone would get so pressed about how she got into it.

Now, everyone who has grown up around the Christmassy chocolate treat knows that the first step – after removing the box – is to give the whole thing a satisfying smack against the table in order to break apart the pieces and allow everyone to share.

The one thing that you really don’t do is simply take back some of the foil and bite right into it.

But, Jazz just bit straight into a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

Anyway, it’s gone down exactly as you might imagine online since she shared it, even leading to an admittedly tongue-in-cheek apology after the fact.

Even before the backlash started, she must have realised that she’d made a big mistake.

The caption for her initial video read: "I think I did that very wrong.”

Yeah, that’s pretty much it.

One person commented: “I could hear so many people chorusing ‘you whack it on the table’.”

A second wrote: “Every Brit watching this screamed HIT IT ON THE TABLE.”

A third reminded her of a classic advert – which she’s definitely never seen – adding: “Don’t just tap it, whack it was an advert from my childhood.”

Anyway, if you’re going to have a Terry’s Chocolate Orange without whacking it against the table to break it open, it turns out that biting into it is literally the worst thing you can do.

Another comment read: “I actually gasped when she bite into it.”

Someone else said: “Someone taking a full bite of a Terry's chocolate orange is one of the most cursed things.”

Come on, this is 2022 after all – there are literally thousands of more cursed things.

A third person wrote: “YOU DID NOT JUST BITE A CHOCOLATE ORANGE”.

As we’ve established, that’s exactly what she did.

To be fair, Jazz did later apologise in a second video, begging the British public to forgive her and even giving the orange a satisfactory crack off the side of the table and breaking the rest of it apart.

After that, she understood it, but for many the damage must already have been done.
