Paynes Mint Poppets
After yesterday’s incredibly disappointing Raisin Poppets I decided I might as well get the rest of these out of the way as soon as possible. Surely these couldn’t be as bad as yesterday’s…
The packaging here is just as weird. Green colouring due to the mint, I get that, but then there’s picture of a telephone on the front which seems nothing short of completely random. The back says ‘When I said give me a ring…I didn’t mean that kind!’…ummm…hilarious? I still don’t get it.
These are dark chocolate (49% cocoa solids) with a peppermint flavoured fondant centre. They sound ok, but when you open the box and find the entire contents are stuck together in one big Poppets shaped blob, you know it’s not going to be good.
Though in all honesty after eating these, I can say that they’re not terrible. They’re sugary and cheap tasting, but no more so than almost any other mint flavoured chocolate I’ve had in the past. That’s not to say these are good, because they’re not, but they’re a ton better than what I had yesterday.
So I don’t recommend these, but I assure you that you can do much worse. Each box has 185 calories, 0.8g Protein, 33.3g Carbohydrates and 5.4g Fat.
