Mint and chocolate together are quite controversial around my way. People either love the combination or hate it. Mrs Peckish is pretty dead set against it, as are a couple of friends, but my parents, Peckish Sr in particular, ran a household where it was coveted.
So I snuck a tub of this Whittaker’s ice-cream into the shopping basket during the weekend to share the experience with you.
This is like mining dark rock for precious ores of peppermint fondant, and there’s plenty of that bright silver oozing through its veins. With the dark chocolate matching oh so well with the peppermint, if this combination is up your alley, set your GPS for Ghana Peppermint way.
Serve on your lover’s pillow after dinner, with the bedspread turned down.
Unless your lover hates chocolate and peppermint, in which case sneak some in the middle of the night when you think she won’t notice.
