Nestlé starts the party with its Mojito and mint After Eight edition

Nestlé has declared that it is ‘cocktail hour’ for its renowned After Eight brand, with its latest release introducing its latest twist on a much loved drink – Mojito & Mint, inspired by the classic Cuban party drink.

The zesty treat features Mojito and mint flavoured fondant enrobed in rich dark chocolate, made with cocoa responsibly sourced through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.

Created in1962, After Eight is made with 100% natural peppermint oil and is free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, and has become a major confectionery phenomenon.

Making an appearance in limited edition form, the new line 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.

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.

“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!”
