A chocolate with supernatural powers. For some, just the eating of chocolates confers confidence and energy. For others it has to be a certain type and no other. As in the case of Wayne Kelly, Britain’s 2011 Scrabble champion, who attributed his success to the Belgian pralines he always ate before a game; or the customer who in 1991 wrote to Bendicks of Mayfair about their Bittermints, saying he always kept one in the silk pocket of his waistcoat, a talisman, to be reached for in times of danger, and held in the palm of his hand. Thereupon, he claimed, the Bittermint endowed him with unshakeable inner security that was “proof against all forms of distress”.

The Bendicks Bittermint, endowed with special protective power.
