Scottish Treats: Lee's Jaffa Bar

I'd never heard of the Orange Jaffa Bar, produced by Lee's of Scotland, until I stumbled into one at a British candy purveyor on Friday evening. What a stroke of luck! These are my new favorite go-to sweet! I feel like I've missed a lot of years of getting to know this treat better. Basically, the orange fondant is the exact same consistency of a York Peppermint Patty. Except it tastes like a sparkling creamsicle. The orange filling would be too sweet except that the dark chocolate covering adds just enough bite to keep the flavors in perfect balance. I've been considering how to stock up on these. Have any readers encountered Jaffa Bars on their rounds in New York City or nearby areas?

Score: 5 (Wow!!)

  1. I want this! Please save me one. Also, when I looked at the new big Peeps, I had this urge to extract those tiny carrots and eat those. Do I need counseling? Your Mother
