Welcome to the fifth blog in our Autumn Fudge Blog Series. In this blog, we’re sharing some interesting facts about peppermint which is one of the main ingredients in our fifth Autumn Fudge Flavour - After 8 Fudge!
During the colder months, we have a tendency to indulge more and after dinner, many people choose a peppermint flavoured treat. This is because peppermint is known to help with digestion and when this herb is combined with chocolate, it creates the perfect combo!
