Please note: The manufacturer has just changed the mix... they used to put spearmint mojos in the assortment... but now they don`t. So we need to update our photo...

Barker and Dobson Black and White Mints
Barker and Dobson Black and White Mints - £2.12
Price on 28-Oct-09 from A Quarter Of....
Barker amp; Dobson Black and White Mints - These are absolutely delicious! We love the blend of rich dark liquorice and the bite of sweet refreshing mint. A classic and moreish combination from traditional sweet makers Barker and Dobson. STOP PRESS: Those pesky, meddling manufacturers have been up to their tricks again. They have changed the layers from... liquorice mint liquorice mint liquorice to... mint liquorice mint liquorice mint.It doesn`t sound much of a change but it means that the sweets are now much more minty with less liquorice... so if you`re after a liquorice hit you might be better off with Pontefract Cakes, Liquorice Cuttings or one of the other hard-core liquorice sweets.
