Jaffas are small round candies consisting of a soft chocolate with a hard, orange flavoured covering. They are popular in Australia and New Zealand.
They were my favourite.
I live in the United States and I NEVER buy candy at the theater because it is so expensive. But while studying abroad in Australia, I used to get Jaffas EVERY time I went to see a movie. They were my favorite and I can't find anything like them in the States!

Going to the movies would never be the same
Jaffas have been the ultimate cinematic snack for generations. While the deliciously crunchy orange coating and rich, smooth chocolate centre are a great pleasure in themselves, Jaffas are more than just about taste. There's the sound of them rattling in the box as you pour them into your hand, the delightful noise they make rolling down the steps of the theatre, and the wonderfully puerile entertainment of throwing a Jaffa at the screen (not showing my age am I?). In other words, going to the movies would never be the same without them.
