Hello there chocolate lovers!
What a great site you all have here! So much chocolate, but even more memories.
I was hoping "Chocolate Review" would feature a long lost chocolate which I have quite vivid memories of despite being quite young at the time...
TERRY'S CHOCOLATE PYRAMINT...the forgotten sibling of the Chocolate Orange.
It was packaged in a small cardboard, pyramid shaped box, perhaps standing 2 inches or so high. The design featured chocolate coloured sihouttes of palm trees, and desert scenes (i think) set to a mint green sky. You would open one of the sides of the pyramid and could slide out the chocolate.
The chocolate itself was obviously a pyramid shape which had a hollow centre filled with mint cream (think of an "After Eight" but with enough mint centre to fill a Creme Egg). One thing I seem to remember is that the chocolate walls were particularly thick. I guess it was from a time where manufacturers did not skimp on such things and gave us chunky chocolate walls instead of the thin, and inferior ones chocolate manufacturers often provide today.
I have such a fond memory of the Pyramint, there used to be this gorgeous minty smell when u opened the box and I guess I remember all this from around the 1985-1987 era.
They clearly stopped making these AGES ago and perhaps they were never even available that long as hardly anyone I know remembers them. Would be great to hear from anyone else who remembers it and any pictures/further details would be fantastic.
Keep up the good work and I hope to get some replies soon!
