The new treat combines Mojito and mint flavoured fondant with the brand’s signature rich dark chocolate, and is inspired by the classic Cuban cocktail.
Debbie Bowen, Senior Brand Manager for After Eight, said: “Last year’s limited-edition Gin & Tonic After Eight was a huge hit with consumers, and we think our newest invention will prove even more popular.”
Limited edition After Eight Mojito & Mint, which is available in a 200g carton (RRP £3), will hit major supermarkets and convenience stores across the UK and Ireland from the beginning of September and is made with cocoa responsibly sourced through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.
Established in 1962, After Eight is crafted with 100% natural peppermint oil and is free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
“After Eight Mojito & Mint is a grown-up and sophisticated take on our classic fondant, with a refreshing and zesty flavour that is sure to delight fans of the brand both old and new. Whether you enjoy it alongside an after-dinner coffee or as a treat at any time of the day, we think our newest mint is a delicious tribute to one of the nation’s favourite cocktails,” said Bowen.
