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?

Supermarket giant Morrisons has slashed the price of one-litre bottles of Baileys to under a tenner in time for Christmas.

The creamy festive favourite is now priced at £9.99, which is the cheapest offer around at the moment.

According to Morrisons’ website, the bottle was previously priced at £13 before the seasonal chop, seeing a saving of £3.01.

Shoppers looking to stock up on Christmas treats and last minute presents will be delighted to hear the news as many have already expressed their joy over social media.

Making sure to spread the word one person tagged her friend in a post on the Morrisons Facebook page, saying: “We need to stock up! Don’t want to run out before the big day!”

A second wrote: “This is a brilliant offer.” And a third put: “This is not a drill!”

Supermarkets have already been competing with offers on festive favourites in the run up to the big day.

Sainsbury’s is currently offering its one-litre bottles of Baileys for £10, 1p more than Morrisons. And Tesco had an offer on Baileys also for £10 for its Clubcard holders, but that deal has now ended and it has since gone back up to its retail price of £13.

Waitrose, Asda and Tesco are all currently selling bottles of the popular Christmas beverage for £13.

Up until a couple of weeks ago, Sainsbury’s were selling bottles of Baileys at the cheapest price, with shoppers able to pick a litre bottle up for £10, before Morrisons announced their £9.99 offer.

Also getting a helpful price chop before Christmas are boxes of Quality Streets. One shopper revealed she picked up a box of Quality Street for £4.50 in Asda but got £2 cash back in her Asda Rewards cash pot, making the tub of goodies cost just £2.50.

Meanwhile, other tubs of Christmas chocolates, including Celebrations, can be picked up for less than £3.62. The deal means shoppers can pick up the 600g boxes of treats for half the usual price of £7.25.

The offer is on tubs of chocolates from The Food Warehouse and Iceland via Just Eat and can be found on the bargain site hotukdeals.com. To shop the deal click HERE.

Shoppers best dash to stores to stock up on this popular giant bottle of bubbly.

While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the bargain gems on Aldi’s middle aisle as well as the discounts it’s offering on its wine selection from November 27th.

The good news of the Christmas saving comes after the supermarket chain was in the headlines for more of a controversial reason…

One shopper slammed the supermarket online for a ‘shameful’ act at the checkout counter during her visit to one of its stores.

The mum took to Facebook to share the experience and people couldn’t believe what one man managed to get away with.

Posting on Aldi Mums Facebook page, she wrote: “We went to our nearest Aldi yesterday when we went to self service checkout we noticed the amount of $178 was still on machine.

“When I approached the manager, she said it had been paid for but in fact the gentleman was packing his unpaid shopping in his car.”

She added that no wonder the ‘price of food is going up’ with too ‘many people stealing’. She then said how she overheard the man in the car park ‘bragging loudly’ on the phone.

According to the woman: “Whoever he was talking [to] about it, he just said how easy it is to steal your fortnight shopping from Aldi.

“And whoever he was talking to [said] keep your voice down. Then he whispers, ‘call you back soon’.

“I wanted to go and say something, but my hubby said don’t worry.”

Sounds like he should have waited for Aldi’s Christmas discounts to land…
