Tesco Value After Dinner Mints Think After Eights but Nicer...!!!! I love chocolate. But even more than that, I love minty chocolate. When I was pregnant I went completely off chocolate, but after I had my little girl, the rush for chocolate came back with a vengeance. I was lucky enough to receive a couple of boxes of After Eights as presents and soon wolfed my way through them. Now After Eights are pretty damn expensive if you ask me, so this is where the value aspect comes in. During a recent online shopping spree at Tesco.com I found, in the virtual sweet isle, this delightful box of choccies, and could not believe the price. 75p. ... Read the complete review

Tesco Value after dinner mints have been one of my favourite finds in the last few months, though I have to keep them a dirty little secret from my friends lest they think I'm a cheapskate. I picked them up from Tesco for 50p though that was a temporary half price special offer and they usually cost about a pound. I don't think I've ever found a non-dairy brand of chocolates for quite this cheap before. ===The chocolates=== These mints are rather like many varieties of shop's own brand after eights (goodness knows that I've tried enough chocolates in my time), but rather a bit thicker. They still have a thick crispy chocolate square with a mint fondant ... Read the complete review

I have cut down a lot on buying cakes and biscuits lately mainly because I am on a permanent diet without actually losing weight I might add, and Mr. Benn has to watch his cholesterol, so during the week we just have a couple of Tesco Value After Dinner Mints. I switched brands from After Eight Mints mainly because this is a cheaper option but does not have a cheaper taste. The only thing that I have found cheapo about these is the packaging, which is the usual blue and white packaging with Tesco Value stamped on the front of the box in red, and on opening the box there is no nice individual little sleeves in which the chocolates sit, just a plastic ...

The traditional After Eights are something we always have at Christmas, but when shopping the other day we saw the After Eights and I really wanted a pack. The only downside? Over £3! Its very rarely I treat myself but £3 and I know the box would be gone in minutes if I'm left alone with them. So as I started to walk away and save my money, I saw these Tesco Value version. At £1 a box, I thought why not, lets give them a try...and I'm glad I did! The Value range is certainly that-value. It's very stripped down packaging, and certainly no thrills. It has the usual blue stripes. And looks very cheap, but that doesn't matter, its what's inside that counts. After ... Read the complete review

No doubt about it, Tesco Value After-dinner Mints are really shoddily packaged. 99p's worth come in a little white oblong box, with just a few splahes of the 'Tesco colours' (red and blue) to enliven it. Once you've fought your way through the cellophane outer wrap (there's no handy ribbon pull-strip given on this budget product) and the cardboard box is opened, it is, however a different matter. Firstly, you don't get all that faffing around with dark-chocolate mints individually-wrapped in black envelopes against the background of a black-painted box with these, not like you do if you've bought the (presumably) market leader in after-dinner-mints 'After ...
