Admittedly, mint chocolate is an acquired taste but all those who love it know that After Eight's are the best by far. And, the brand has even announced that they will soon be releasing a gin and tonic flavour in the UK.
The new chocolates will consist of a delicious gin and tonic fondant coated in the smoothest dark chocolate. The fresh and citrusy flavour makes the perfect pair for chocolates. But, not all good things last forever and the After Eights Gin & Tonic & Mint will only be sold as a limited edition.
Where can we find the gin & tonic After Eights?
From the 7th of September people will be able to find these delicious, wafter thin treats in 200g boxes at the UK supermarkets and they will be available all the way up until Christmas. So you have a little while to stock up.
A spokesperson for After Eight released in a statement:
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 60 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.
The brand also made the announcement on Twitter and Instagram and was met with some very excited responses of 'nom nom nom' and 'I need to try this!'
And we couldn't agree more. So, make sure you pencil in a grocery shop on the 7th of September!
