Ferrero Fresco Mints
« on: August 29, 2005, 06:41:10 pm »

Anyone remember these? Externally they were regular Ferrero Rochers but with a gourgeous liquid Mint centre where the grotty nutty gloop should be. They were only around for a couple of years & I havent seen them since about 1992-93. I mention them whenever im offered a disgusting Ferrero Rocher by someone, and have often been called a liar for my trouble. However my trump card being that as a kid i used to stick all my stickers from bananas, apples, terrys choc oranges & the like, on the tiles around my folks fireplace, and as their front room hasnt been decorated since 1983 theyre still all there, so i recently salvaged mounted & laminated them for the non believers.


Bring 'em back Ferrero!!

Sorry the point to that story being that there were a a couple of Fresco mint stickers from the plastic box still on there which i salvaged. Come to think of it now as an adult i'd have slapped me one for such living room vandalism!

 Yes, there was a post about these a few weeks ago and quite a few people expressed regret that they were axed. I hate praline so regular rocher chocs are repellent to me but the mint ones were FAB.

I too remember these, actually. I wish Ferrero hadn't discontinued them  :(.

Me too!  My family absolutely loved them!  We used to buy boxes of them!

So sad... quite a lot of people don't like praline or are becoming allergic to them (it's getting more and more common), not just Fererro Fresco mints but Mon Cheri has now disappeared from our shelves in the UK too.

What Ferrero choccies are us non-nut lovers able to indulge in these days?

Those coconutty-coated things with a kind of wafer underneath and a creamy filling are quiet nice but criminally expensive - and if coconut counts as nuts in your book that's not very helpful I suppose!

It's possible I've had these, but I can't remember. I remember the coconut one, though.

I only had a couple of boxes of those. I expected them to be around longer than they were and I missed out.

Don't like Rocher so Ferrero don't get any of my monies these days.

What is it about Ferrero Rocher that you don't like, Rainbow?

Just all of it. The hazelnut, the praline, the crunchy stuff on the outside.. It's just not a chocolate for me.

I prefer the dark chocolate Ferrero Rondnoir, they are very yummy, and the mint ones were delicious, I especially liked the fact that they weren't dark chocolate. I think most mint chocolate is dark isn't it?

I must admit that there are better pralines out there, although I think the centre is similar to Nutella, is it not?

You're definitely on the button with Ferrero Rondnoir. Dark, mysterious and yummy, just like me!

There are some mint chocolates out there made with milk chocolate. Personally, I don't like that mix and prefer mint and dark.

I find that a lot of the dark chocolate stuff with something minty in gives me tooth ache, so I tend to avoid that combination.
That's why I liked the Ferrero ones so much because they were made with milk chocolate.
Ahh well.

Dark mysterious and yummy huh? lol

Hmm.. That does look pretty unfortunate.

You just know that the company paid someone a small fortune to come up with that marketing idea don't you?
