Product information

Thin squares of mint fondant wrapped in dark chocolate, each in their own crisp envelope. After Eight thin square mints in their classic carton are the nation's favourite after dinner mints. Each square piece is the perfect balance of soft, refreshing mint fondant with thin dark chocolate, making it the finishing touch to any meal. AFTER EIGHT has been at the heart of the British nation since 1962 when it was launched in order to tap into a gap in the market for Rowntree's for After Dinner chocolate mints. Rowntree's therefore decided to develop a wafer thin mint, and AFTER EIGHT was born. Since launch AFTER EIGHT has been proudly produced in West Yorkshire, initially in Castleford before moving to Halifax in 2013. Over the years, there have been several memorable advertising campaigns including, perhaps the most iconic, 'Dinner Party' campaign in 1999 featuring Stephen Fry, Naomi Campbell and Marilyn Monroe. Today, AFTER EIGHT continues to be a firm British favourite with over 280m individual sweets enjoyed every year in the UK.

Not Like They Used To Be!

I think this might be the last time I buy After Eights for Christmas. As other reviews have pointed out, the filling is very fondant like and chocolate is not as dark. I also think they are smaller than they used to be. It's a shame, because these used to be great after dinner.

what happened?!

Shockingly bad. Dont know the history/story behind why such an iconic chocolate changed so much, but its not for the better . The new flavour is waaay more spearmint, and tastes like toothpaste. Probably the shock of it intensifies the change, but its not a good change, it makes it taste and feel cheap & nasty. Still cant get over how the idea made it through from conception to reality Thats one clever salesperson Just a shame they felt the need, and that they picked this poor confectionery to unleash their egos upon.

Not the same

Agree with everyone else, they are just not as good as they used to be. the mint is a kind of chewy texture now, not like a fondant.
