After Eight fans get excited – today it was announced that there is a brand-new flavour from your favourite fondant mint. After Eight have only gone and launched a GIN AND TONIC version! Yes you heard it right. They have added spirits to the range.
It’s available in a 200g carton perfect for sharing or for eating all yourself, the deliciously zingy After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint features gin and tonic-flavoured mint fondant enrobed in rich dark chocolate. It is made with cocoa which the press release says is responsibly sourced through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan. I haven’t actually tried them yet, as they don’t hit the shops until September, but I can’t wait.
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!”
Established in 1962, After Eight is crafted with 100% natural peppermint oil and is free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint is a limited edition that will be available from all major supermarkets, Ocado, Amazon and convenience stores across the UK and Ireland from September 7 onwards, until Christmas.
Surely I can’t be the only one excited to get my hands on a box? Let me know what you think – gin & tonic After Eights – love it or hate the idea?
