Mintolas

Another 'to die for' confection of the 70s and 80s had to be Mintola (by Mackintosh). These were mint fondant-filled dark chocolates (bit like After Eights, but more like Pyramints) shaped as little cubes and came in a roll with a dark-green colored wrapper. There was a similar candy called Munchems or Munchies from the same manufacturer and these came in a red-coloured wrapper but were milk cholocate cubes with creamy caramel inside surrounding a satisfying little biscuit.

Mintolas were my favorite of the two, but after eating a pack of them, they would make me as thirsty as can be! And boy were they expensive compared to most other chocolate bars!

    Thanks for reminding me of 'Delights'! I'd forgotten all about them. I used to suck them 'til all the chocolate had melted and just left the turkish delight centre. Lovely!
