- Lost my receipt so I can’t remember how much I paid 🙁
- About S$12?
- Contains 11 mints, or 200g
Very intense mint – even with packaging the mint aroma can be smelled at this stage.
A mint candy with dark chocolate (95%) coating.
The mint is mostly only for fans of dark chocolate and mint – the peppermint fondant is sweet but there are bitter notes from the chocolate and the mint is very intense. As Surprisingly hard shell with a satisfying snap to the bite. Texture is grainy and paste-like as it melts in your mouth.
It is at a premium, but the quality of the mint shows why. It is, as their website says, wonderfully intense.
Rating for Bendick’s Bittermints:
I rate food based on how far I am willing to travel, as well as whether I think the price I paid for it justifies it. You can read more about why here.
A bit of a moot point, since you can order a delivery. But I can see myself spending a little effort if I desire a good, quality mint chocolate.
This is a mint that is on the expensive side, but I think if you feel like splurging just a little, this could be a good option. It is worth it for its price.
But I’m just a fat boi… What do other people think?
Amazon customers gave raving reviews, with average to negative reviews seemingly giving it because mints were “stale”, which seems to be a logistical problem. Positive reviews says that these are the best you can get.
Reviews on Ocado are similar to Amazon. I am going on the assumption that people who gave this a negative review are not fans of mint in the first place.
Chocablog finds the bittermints quite refreshing.
ChocolateMission gave it 8.5/10 despite not being keen on mint and chocolate combinations.
Doug’s Chocolate Republic gave it 7.5/10, preferring Bendick’s BitterOranges.
trieze0713 loves it. Top of the chain.
Tami Dunn seemed to like it.
Overall, general review seem to be similar to mine; if you like mints, this is wonderful.
