Today's Chocolate Peppermint Cream Dominoes were from Summerdown Farms Ltd. (Hampshire, UK).
This English company is known for their peppermint chocolates and herbal mint teas, flavored with "pure English single estate Mitcham peppermint." The mint is grown on their farm in the foothills of the Hampshire Downs.
The Summerdown peppermint is harvested and distilled; and the resulting mint oil is barrel-aged for two years to achieve a desired flavor profile.
Today's chocolate mints had a very minty aroma, detectable even before opening the box. The almost impossibly thin, domino-shaped, dark chocolates (18 to a box) were filled with a light-colored, sweet, creamy mint-flavored layer (that contained glucose syrup).
Ingredients: sugar, cocoa mass, glucose syrup, invert syrup, emulsifier, humectant: glycerol, Black Mitcham Peppermint
