Great Taste is to speciality food and drink what Michelin is to fine dining, so we are very proud that Summerdown Mint continues to receive so many awards each year. This year we are delighted our new Heritage range of chocolates, each made with 70% dark chocolate, have both been recognised: two-star gold for our Heritage peppermint fondants and one-star gold for our Heritage peppermint crisp discs. Also this year, our spearmint & camomile tea won two-star gold, affirming we use only the finest ingredients from our farm in the foothills of the Hampshire downs.
In truth, all our chocolates and teas have won awards in the last few years. We now have an impressive total of sixteen Great Taste awards, including the ultimate three-star accolade for our pyramid peppermint tea in 2014, two more awards in 2015 (two-star gold for our peppermint thins and one-star gold for our peppermint tea) as well as our impressive three awards for 2016.
Sixteen Great Taste Awards and counting…
Organised by the Guild of Fine Foods, these awards are one of the UK’s most rigorous tests of food standards, with each entry judged by a panel of independent experts. The coveted black-and-gold star Great Taste stickers are a mark of quality that is trusted by retailers, buyers and consumers.
