The rich and icy flavour and mouthwatering smell of one of the classic after dinner treats is pretty much the epitome of Christmas joy – and now Nestle have stepped up their game, launching a boozy version.

The thin, minty chocolates are launching in preparation for Christmas time, so it’s time to get them on your festive shopping list.
Nestle took to social media to share news of the epic launch with confectionary fans, leaving loads of them so keen to try their alcoholic take on an old school sweet.
