Nestlé is adding a limited-edition gin and tonic-flavoured variant to its After Eight range of fondant mints this September.
According to Nestlé, After Eights are made with 100% natural peppermint oil and are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
The brand’s ‘zingy’ new offering features gin and tonic-flavoured mint fondant covered in rich dark chocolate.
After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint comes in a 200g carton and is said to be made with cocoa responsibly sourced through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.
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.”
After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint will be available in the UK and Ireland from 7 September, via Amazon and Ocado, as well as from convenience stores and all major supermarkets.
