A while back, we reported that you could buy Strawberry Flavoured After Eights, which seemed kind of crazy to us, although we're not sure why. Strawberry goes well with dark chocolate. Mint goes well with dark chocolate. Strawberry goes well with mint. But do they all go well together?

Anyway, wait until you hear about the newest After Eight flavour. Gin & Tonic! Yep, Gin & Tonic After Eights are officially hitting UK supermarket shelves from September, and we're pumped to give them a try.

The wafer thin chocolate pieces will feature a gin and tonic-flavoured mint fondant enrobed in rich dark chocolate. And honestly, it sounds delicious.

Debbie Bowen, Senior Brand Manager for After Eight said: “Gin has rapidly become the nation’s spirit of choice, so what could be better than combining the flavours of our favourite tipple with the delicious mint fondant and dark chocolate that has made After Eight so popular for almost sixty years.

“After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint is a delightfully fresh, zesty twist on a classic, and we believe it will prove to be a very popular addition to the range. Gin O’Clock has officially arrived!”

The Limited Edition After Eight Gin & Tonic & Mint will be available in all major supermarkets, Ocado, Amazon and convenience stores across the UK and Ireland from September 7 onwards, until Christmas.

And if you do treat yourself, be sure to put them in the fridge to chill, as it says that these bad boys are best served cold, which makes sense if you think about it – you wouldn’t dream of having a room temperature G&T now, would you?
