Tesco Mint Assortment
Advantages: Very cheap, but very good tasting mints !!
Disadvantages: Quite high in calories like most nice things are!
With a long trip on the cards in the next couple of weeks to see my son at University, can't wait I haven't seen him since he went at the start of September. I may have spoke to him nearly everyday but I can't wait to give him a cuddle, anyway back to the review. We don't like to travel without a few different sweets to suck to take the boredom of the journey away.
Well we usually stock up with Murray Mints, Fox's Glaciers ect.. so last time when we had a long trip ( that was to take him up there) we grabbed a bag of Tesco's own, not to save on pennies, but because these come as an assortment of different mints.
These come in a light green and white stripy bag and weigh 250g so you get quite a few in there. On opening you will see that it contains Everton Mints, Clear Mints, Mint Humbugs, Butter Mintoes and Mint Toffees. So instead of me having to buy several different bags you get all these in the one bag.
Now all the mints apart from the Toffee ones are in a clear plastic wrapper, with the toffee ones covered in a shiny green foil wrapper. Now as with most things everyone has different tastes so with;
~~~Hubby liking Humbugs ( don't surprise me with Xmas coming up!)~~
~~~Son 1 liking Evertons~~~
~~~Son 2 liking Toffee~~~
~~~Me liking Butter Mintoes~~~
It works out quite well, except that being that no one seems to be keen on the clear mints these are what you get the most of!
I'm the loser in this bag as I've just counted out what this particular bag holds and it works out that:
~~~Clear Mints 10~~~
~~~Butter Mintoes 4~~~
Now it tells you on the back of the packet how many calories ect.. there are in 3 sweets, but surely it depends on which 3 sweets you choose. Toffee Mints should have more than say Clear Mints I would have thought? Anyway here are the stats per 3 sweets;
Quite high being thats only 3 sweets, so I shall have to be watching what I pop into my mouth next time as with being bored I could quite easily suck quite a few without realising how many calories I have just consumed!
These cost just 68p a 250g bag or 3 for £2.00
So these deserve a 5 star rating as the taste of each sweet is up to top standard level, with each of the mints be it Everton, Humbug, Butter Mintoes, Toffee or Clear mints, individually taste of a very good standard and taste to me better than the more well known brands.I will be buying these again that's for sure!!
Summary: Well worth buying if you enjoy the odd mint from time to time!
