Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life is one of my most favourite films of all time and after nearly a year of reviewing chocolate I do feel like Mr Creosote so why not celebrate the a fine year by inuldging in some Wafer Thin Mints? And for those of you who don’t have a clue of what I’m on about, here’s the video to set the scene:
So I’ve bagged myself the said Wafer Thin Mints from Firebox for the princely sum of £7.99. Of course you can get some damn fine chocolates for that price but at Christmas sometimes you just want a bit of fun and if you’re looking for some chocolate stocking fillers for a friend or loved one then these will be spot on – especially if they’re a Monty Python fan!
You do get 36 of these crunchy wafer thin mints which measure about 2cm by 4cm which is about enough, any larger and then you’d probably eat too many and as they taste very much like mint Matchmakers then that’s guaranteed!
I know they don’t offer the most refined of chocolate flavours but I just can’t get enough of them. They may be a touch duller, in terms of flavour, than those Matchmakers, but as a fairly cheap chocolate stocking filler they we’re worth it. What’s more, they’ll be perfect for sharing around after Christmas dinner if you’ve got any room left. Perhaps you could do a competition where the person that does the best Mr Creosote impression gets to eat the entire contents? I’d pay to see that!
I know there’d be more imaginative chocolate stocking fillers from people such as Paul A. Young with his chocolate grapes, or Christmas Pudding Truffles or the chocolate snow globes, but these are just perfect for the target audience.
