A jaffa is a sweet with an orange flavored outer covering and a chocolate center. They are round in shape, and you’ll often hear jaffas rolling on the floor, especially in the movies. Their round shape makes them escape easily! They’re an Australian and New Zealand institution.
Each year Cadbury’s, the company that makes jaffas in New Zealand, releases 30,000 of their jaffas on Baldwin Street in Dunedin, NZ (the steepest street in the world). This occurs during their chocolate festival.
I like jaffas—it’s the combination of orange and chocolate that takes me back to childhood.
JAFA is also a slang term for an Aucklander. It is short for Just Another F****** Aucklander. I guess, by definition, I am a JAFA
