Day 76~366


Out of all the square treats so far this month, tonight is my favourite. 🙂 After Eight mint chocolate thins were one of my Mum’s favourites too. Invented by Brian Sollitt they came on the  market in 1962 and were supposed to be after dinner chocolates.  Mum didn’t have dinner parties, but she’d get a box now and then at a weekend and we’d sit at night in her double bed with music on and reading books and stuff ourselves on the little square yummies. It’s the little things….

  3. Those boxes, we have them in Peru as well, yours bring so many memories of them used to store, among other things, brown and black buttons and threads of colors.

  4. I remember when they came out. My Mum thought that they were the height of sophistication, but I preferred Bendick’s mint thins, or Elizabeth Shaw mint discs. They were both hard to find back then, but Mum worked in the City of London, and was able to track them down.
    Nostalgia and photos, a great combination.
    Best wishes, Pete.
