Asda is selling orange flavoured After Eights so we’re already looking forward to Christmas

How do these make you feel? (Picture: Asda)

There are a few chocolate treats that shall forever make us think of Christmas: Celebrations, Quality Street, Terry’s Chocolate Orange and After Eights.

Why has it taken so long for someone to combine them?

Sadly no one’s made a full fourway mashup of dreams, but Nestle has essentially smushed together those last two chocolates to create orange flavour After Eights.

Yes, friends. Orange After Eights now exist in the world, so you can finally combine your love of chocolate and orange with the sophistication of an after-dinner mint (we can’t explain why eating After Eights continues to make us feel so grown up, but that’s the truth).

Be warned, though. If you’re expecting a pure orange hit you shall be disappointed. After Eight mints are, after all, mints, and thus their official flavour is orange and mint.

We’ll let that sink in for a moment. Orange and mint fondant surrounded by chocolate. This either sounds absolutely repulsive or a Christmas-y dream.

The flavour was shared by newfoodsuk, whose post divided opinion.

One commenter painted a disturbing picture of the taste, writing: ‘I hope these don’t taste like when you drink orange juice after brushing your teeth. Vile.’

Another described the chocolate as ‘wrong on every level’.

You’re not alone if you do fancy the sound of orange and mint After Eights, though, as there are a few positive comments on the post. There are even some heart eye emoji.

The flavour has been around in France for a while, but this is the first time it’s come to the UK.

Asda is selling the orange and mint After Eights for £2 in store (they don’t appear to be available online just yet). Check for the little orange slices on the box to make sure you’re getting the right ones.
