You’re got going to believe this. Seriously… hold on to your hats, because this is going to blow your mind. Unless you already knew this…
Terry’s – famous for Terry’s Chocolate Orange – used to make a minty dark chocolate pyramid, called the Terry’s Pyramint.
Crazy, right? RIGHT?
There also used to be a Terry’s Chocolate Apple too, but my brain can’t deal with right now as well…
Unlike Terry’s Chocolate Orange, the Pyramint wasn’t a solid chocolate shape. It was a dark chocolate Egyptian pyramid with a minty fondant middle. I like how Wikipedia describes the middle of a Pyramint as “where the burial chamber would have been.” It’s not often the words “burial chamber” and “minty fondant” are used in the same paragraph…
Terry’s Pyramint was popular back in the 1980s, and even came in a chocolate bar form, which had pyramid-shaped pieces.
But alas, Terry’s called time on the Pyramint in the 1990s due to failing demand. Maybe it’s because they would have been pretty hard/painful to eat what with all those sharp edges.
Plenty of people on Instagram remember the Pyramint; with many calling for it to make a return to corner shops across the land.
While we wait to hear if Terry’s will be answering these poor people’s prayers to bring the Pyramint back, all you mint chocolate fans can at least get stuck into the mint KitKat Chunky bars, which are back for a limited time.
At the time, Sascha Macchi, brand manager for KitKat, said “We know KitKat fans love the opportunity to rediscover limited-edition flavours and this is why we are bringing back two huge favourites this year.
“The UK is also a huge fan of minty treats, so we expect KitKat Chunky Mint to be flying off the shelves as soon as it leaves our production line in York.
Oh, and the white Terry’s Chocolate Orange is back this year too. See – it’s not all bad.
