I hate the term “orange candy” for a number of reasons.
First, it implies that it’s an overly sweet orange, or, worse, that it tastes like something you would eat out of a can.
I don’t eat oranges, but I have been guilty of eating them.
I’m also guilty of being a big fan of a lot of foods that I know I’m not supposed to eat, including oranges, as I’m sure they’re not exactly what I expected.
So while the word might not be offensive, it’s definitely not the most effective way to describe this sweet, delicious treat.
Second, “orange” implies something very different from what is actually on the package.
“Orange candy” is not a sweet candy at all, but it is a flavoring that can add a nice citrusy sweetness to your next batch of meringue.
The only reason that “orange-y” is an acceptable label to put on this treat is because the ingredient list does not list it as an orange.
Instead, it lists it as a “sweet orange flavoring.”
So if you’re looking for an orange flavouring that will add just a little bit of sweetness to this dessert, “Orange Candy” may be the way to go.
You don’t have to avoid “Orange” at all.
You can still enjoy a treat that tastes just like it looks and feels like it should, and that’s the ultimate goal here.
(I mean, really, really enjoy this dessert!)
The most effective use of “Orange Candies” is for the very first time, so if you’ve never heard of them before, I recommend you read the ingredients section first.
I can assure you, it is not as easy to eat as it sounds.
As you will see in the video below, the taste is not the greatest, but if you love oranges and you love meringues, this is the perfect treat for you.
This is the first time that we’ve seen orange candy in a meringu-based dessert.
I didn’t even realize that it existed, so the first thing I did was to try it.
I wasn’t disappointed.
The taste of orange candy is sweet and buttery, like something made from sugar, but not as much sugar as I might have expected.
I was actually pleasantly surprised that the sugar did not make my mouth feel like it was full of orange juice.
It just made me happy.
The orange flavor is very noticeable and has a bit of a tangy flavor to it.
It’s definitely something to try out if you are into sweet and citrusy flavors.
If you like meringes, but you don’t love orange, “Mars Candies,” which is made from a different type of orange, is a better option.
It is very similar to “Orange Sugar,” and it has the same flavor.
It has a more fruity flavor that is a bit more reminiscent of orange than orange candy.
If, however, you do like mersingues, “Mars Candies”, which is a similar fruit, is another great choice.
I personally prefer this dessert to “Marlies Candies.”
It has the sweetness and sweetness of merses but it also has a slightly more subtle taste.
This dessert also has more flavor than “MARS Candy,” which I do not like, and it’s more likely to taste like orange sugar.
This meringo dessert is also easy to make, but the ingredients are more complex than some meringos.
There are no whipped topping options, so you’ll have to make your own.
The recipe can be adapted for other types of fruit, too.
For example, if you prefer chocolate meringoes, you could also make a mousse out of chocolate chips instead of a mousses.
Just be sure to be careful about how you do this as the sugar is quite sticky and you may have to mix it with some water to make sure it doesn’t stick.
If all of that isn’t enough to convince you to try this dessert for yourself, try out a few different flavors before you go wild with it.
This dish is a delicious addition to any dessert or bar, especially if you like sweet, citrusy fruit.
It may not be your cup of tea, but for the most part, it will satisfy your sweet tooth and sweet tooth craving.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this video and find the “Orange Caramel” dessert to be a great addition to your repertoire.
