Monty Python Wafer Thin Mints

And now for something completely different

Sorry, this product is not available.



And now for something completely different. Yes really, because Monty Python Wafer Thin Mints have arrived, and they are almost as funny as the infamous Mr Creosote scene from Python’s classic 1983 movie, The Meaning of Life.

If you’re too young to remember this stomach-churningly hilarious sketch, feel free to YouTube it*. Just don’t do it when you’re eating. Either way, better have a bucket handy. ‘Anuzzer bucket for monsieur. And perhaps a hose.’

36 wafer thin chocolate mints

Officially licensed by Monty Python

"It’s only ‘waffer’ thin, monsieur"

Officially licensed by Monty Python and Mr Creosote himself (probably), these delicious chocolate mints make brilliant after dinner treats, especially if you present them to guests with a Gallic flourish. ‘Finally monsieur, a wafer thin mint.’

Forget silly walks, dead parrots and lumberjack songs, Monty Python Wafer Thin Mints are sure to impress and revolt diners in equal measure. You can even spoon on a little irony and serve one to the greedy gutbucket in your life following an epic feast. ‘Oh sir, it’s only wafer thin.’ Bon appetit – and take cover!

Customer Reviews

My whole family loves Monty Python but my step-dad is a massive fan! Got these for his Christmas present and he (and everyone else) loved them! The box was bigger than I expected and they are very tasty, lasted him right through until the New Year even when sharing with the rest of us =).

Great mints but it's a shame about the packaging that firebox used to send it out to me... When I eagerly opened it up this morning, the box was completely smashed and the padded envelope was covered in chocolate - mint fragments. Not great because this was intended as a comedy Christmas gift and now I'll have to scoff the shattered remains myself. I know firebox cannot be blamed for the Royal Mails rough treatment but perhaps consider sturdier packaging in future?

Firebox says: Hi Emily, that is very unfortunate. Get in touch on and we will sort this out for you.
I absolutely cannot wait to serve these on my 'Come Dine with me' night!!!
