York Peppermint Pattie (House of Fraser 23/08/08)

York Peppermint Pattie
Not a new product, but a foreign food. It makes it here though as it was purchased in the UK and it is the first of a relatively good haul of American chocs purchased here and widely available in British department stores.
The name of the York Peppermint Pattie made me smile, as it made me think of the character in Peanuts. There is even an internet rumour that the product was the sponsor of the show for a while!
Anyway, the dark chocolate is rather bitter which compliments the sweet peppermint filling perfectly. The filling is the perfect texture; smooth, but firm – softer than a Kendal mint cake – and very very nice.
After Eight lovers everywhere will love this!

Had one of these. Very nice. They're quite big too! Like a minty wagon wheel! ;-)
