Minstrels are chocolate buttons with a hard glazed shell sold in the United Kingdom. It’s pretty much like M&Ms and Smarties. Ben brought some home after his London trip this summer. They are indeed very much different from the types that we have ever come across. They are much richer and chocolatey.
Ever since then, we had been scouring them all around the Lower Mainland but could not find any. When my sister visited England in Fall, I took the opportunity to get her to buy some for us. At the same time, Ben also visited Malaysia. So this batch of Minstrels, went virtually around the world. From London to Malaysia and then to Vancouver.
Minstrels are like a larger version of M&Ms and its a chocolate candy. They don’t come in other colours other than chocolate.
For us, the best way to enjoy this is let the outer candy melt in our mouth down to the chocolate core. The chocolate core is unbelievably rich. M&Ms really pale in comparison to this. We just simply love this.
Ben also found them selling in Singapore Changi Airport.
Have you tried this? Do your country sell this at all? Anyway, Ben will be in Washington state later on this week and he’ll try and see if they sell it there.
