MET Christmas Tasting: Mint Chocolates

by alex, added 2 years ago

After the ‘success’ of the mince pie tasting, we moved on to the all-important Christmas staple, the after dinner mint. It was a close call at the top of the tasting charts, surprisingly not being lead by the obvious brands – and there was a definite loser in the bunch. We suspected through tasting that a number of mint chocolates by different brands, were manufactured at the same place due to similarity, although mind tricks have delivered a result.

There were 7 taste testers for the mint chocolates, scoring each area out of 10. The total across the two categories is out of 140.

And The Winner Is….

Tesco – Mint Thins

By one point on taste, Tesco’s snuck ahead of Asda at the last minute. Tom commented it had a ‘good crunch to the chocolate’ and a ‘great minty flavour’, which is fortunate for an after dinner mint!

A worthy runner up from….

Asda – Mint Thins

Just pipped to the post by the winner by one point, Asda offered a larger packet for the same price.

Overall, both Tesco and Asda mints are worth a punt for your coffee break, after the Christmas turkey roast! As much as we don’t want to disparage any of our mints, at £4 and the most sugar content, the M&S Peppermint Creams were a big disappointment and came bottom of the list. Unfortunately one to miss, according to the MET team.
