Mingles

Mingles were a type of mint chocolates made by Bendicks and sold in the UK from 2002. The chocolates were all made in the UK in a factory in Winchester. In April 2009 August Storck confirmed it was shutting the factory at the end of July and relocating production to Ohrdruf, its Eastern German plant. This would result in a loss of more than 80 jobs although it would continue to employ over 30 staff in Winchester to support marketing and sales of its brands in the UK.

Following the closure of the plant Bendicks discontinued the Mingles line in July 2011, and production at the Winchester plant finally ended on Friday July 29, 2011 after the last boxes were produced ready for Christmas.
