Hmm, interesting…

After Eights has had a bit of a modern makeover, in the form of a limited edition gin and tonic flavour.

The new boozy version is being released in the run-up to Christmas, and is sure to divide opinion.

It will feature a boozy gin and tonic-flavour mint fondant filling, which will of course be surrounded by the classic rich dark chocolate we all know and love.



A spokesperson 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 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 gin and tonic flavour snacks will be out in all major supermarkets, convenience stores, and online at Ocado and Amazon from September 7th.

And they’ll be around until Christmas so you’ve got time to stock up, if they sound up your street.

What do you reckon then, yay or nay?

M&S

M&S has already announced the release of some festive bangers this year, including a light-up snow globe gin with glittery edible gold, as well as a Percy Pig advent calendar.

Well, it seems they’ve been saving the best until last, with the retailer announcing a special festive Colin the Caterpillar cake along with the rest of its range this week.

The special Christmas Colin comes complete with a Santa hat, candy holly leaves, white chocolate Christmas baubles and chocolate presents.

M&S

Underneath all this festive decoration is the same old delicious Colin, with chocolate sponge roll filled with a choc buttercream and smothered in more chocolate.

According to M&S he serves 10 – although I could definitely polish this off by myself – and he’ll set you back £10 in store.

M&S

And he isn’t the only Christmas dessert from M&S this year, as you can also grab some traditional mince pies for £1.50, or a Chocolate Orange Christmas Pudding for £12 – filled with oozy chocolate and orange sauce inside.

There’s also shimmery profiteroles, which M&S are calling Golden Balls, for £12, and the Giant Gold Bullion Bar (£20) is returning this year in a new supersized form.
