Chocolate Mint Day

Posted on by Elizabeth Shaw

The most important day of the year is nearly here. No, not our birthday or Christmas Day, but Chocolate Mint Day! Friday 19th February is a day to celebrate the delectable combination of mouth-watering mint and irresistibly delicious chocolate.

The Mint Crisp was the very first chocolate that Elizabeth Shaw created, way back in 1937 at a kitchen table. After much success with friends and family, the mint chocolates were transformed into the Elizabeth Shaw Chocolates we know and love today. We’ve perfected our recipe over the years to bring you the tastiest minty morsels, so whether you choose a classic Elizabeth Shaw Mint Crisp, a modern and moreish Mint Flute or venture into mint chocolate baking for Chocolate Mint Day, you know you’ll be enjoying the best. Read on for some great ideas on how to join in…plus chances to win our chocolates!

Elizabeth Shaw Mint Chocolates

Mint Thins

The latest addition to our mint chocolate range, our Mint Thins are a silky smooth slice of dark chocolate laced with vibrant mint flavour and topped with crunchy mint pieces – we dare you not to finish the whole box!

Mint Flutes

Delicately shaped dark chocolate filled with mint fondant, our Mint Flutes are an ultra-sophisticated way to celebrate Chocolate Mint Day. Perfect for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, they are rather wonderful when dipped into your cup of coffee.

Mint Crisps

Our classic chocolate that never goes out of style. Crunchy honeycomb pieces blended with dark or milk chocolate and infused with our specially selected mint oil, our Mint Crisps have been a firm favourite since we started creating chocolates. What better way to celebrate Mint Chocolate Day.
