Mint Daim Bar (Limited Edition) Review


Today's review is thanks to one of my kind readers, Vicky, who recently visited Sweden and picked up a new Limited Edition Mint Daim bar for me. We don't usually get limited edition Daim varieties in the UK (although there were briefly some Cola and Orange flavours!), but a little research reveals there's been lots of Daim limited editions in its native Sweden - Dark and White Chocolate, Forest Fruits "Summer Dream", Lemon-Lime "Cool Breeze", Cappuccino,...and even Daim Ice Cream Bars! Maybe there's no demand for all these things in the UK. What do you think, readers...would you like to see more Daim varieties on shelves?


Back to this mint flavour...inevitably, the bar has shattered in the post, which isn't surprising as it's longer than the Daim bars we get in the UK. It smelled intensely of mint, in fact it reminded me of Murray Mints and Mintoes - those butter mints that are often popular with grannies.


And that's kind of how it tasted...the filling was similar to a butterscotch flavoured Murray Mint, coated in creamy milk chocolate. I have to say it surprised me by how tasty it was, I wasn't expecting the flavours of mint and butterscotch to work together but they really did and it turned out rather moreish! The milk chocolate finished things off perfectly and brought a nice creaminess to the crunchy filling.

Overall, this is a tasty limited edition and it's such a shame we won't be getting it in the UK. Mint flavours are perfect for Christmas so I don't see why Mondelez haven't launched it here too?! Maybe in future...

Are you a fan of Daim? Would you like to see this Mint Edition in the UK? Let me know in the comments! 

RATING: 8 out of 10.

  1. Oh, I thought they didn't sell those any more because they were limited editions. Haven't tasted them though, probably because I'm not that big a fan of Daim.

  2. Wow this looks great! I didn't realise Sweden had so many different limited editions of Daim bars, it's such a great idea. I'd like to try the white chocolate one - can you imagine how SWEET that must be?

  3. Wow, this sounds so interesting. The texture of Daim but with mint flavour would be a winner in my book

  4. I wish Mondelez would bring this bar to the UK! Mint chocolate is my favourite but its just so rare over here?

  5. Oh! I bought one of these in Norway last October. I was going to send it to you but it was too tempting so I tried it.

    I hated it so much even though I love Daim and mint. It just tasted like I'd eaten the original after I'd brushed my teeth.
