Nestle Release Limited Edition Gin & Tonic After Eight Mints

After Eight Gin & Tonic Mints

Nestle are releasing a limited edition version of their popular chocolate covered thin mints, but this time around with the added flavour of yes….you guessed it – Gin and Tonic!

After Eight Mints are a staple part of Christmas Day and the season’s festivities. Just the smell of a fresh box can conjure up fond memories of childhood, and of course back then we had to wait until after eight o’clock to enjoy them!

Now, we are going to be spoilt with this exciting new release of Gin and Tonic flavoured After Eights, and I don’t think we can wait until Christmas day to enjoy them!

After Eight Gin & Tonic Mints

The original After Eight Mints are filled with a mint fondant, flavoured with 100% natural peppermint oil. The new release also features the same mint fondant, but with the additional flavour of Gin and Tonic, enrobed in rich dark chocolate – made with responsibly sourced cocoa.

Debbie Bowen, Senior Brand Manager for After Eight said:

“Gin has rapidly become the nation’s spirit of choice, so what could be better than combining the flavours of our favourite tipple with the delicious mint fondant and dark chocolate that has made After Eight so popular for almost sixty years.”

“After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint is a delightfully fresh, zesty twist on a classic, and we believe it will prove to be a very popular addition to the range. Gin O’Clock has officially arrived!”

We can’t wait to try them! Unlike the original After Eight Mints, these ones are best served cold, so if you do treat yourself to a box, or two! be sure to get them into the fridge straight away.

The Limited Edition After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint will be available to purchase in all major supermarkets, Ocado, Amazon and convenience stores across the UK and Ireland from 7 September onwards, up until Christmas. They can also be currently found to pre-order by clicking here on Amazon UK, however stocks are VERY limited!
