Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Mints

Oh, these are excellent little morsels! I just ate a whole bag of them (it's only 2 ounces, and one bag is listed as the serving size, so I was just doing as I was instructed to do) five minutes ago, and I rushed to the computer to bang out this plea that you buy yourself some.

Strong peppermint, just a wee bit of chocolate. Pleasing contrast of textures, with a thin, hard outer layer, then soft chocolate, then a sort of crystally core.

$1.49 is kind of pricey for a single-serving bag, so I'm not going to keep these stocked in my house, but it was a delightful little treat.

Will I buy it again? 

The next time I'm stuck waiting for another customer at the cashier, where the impulse-buy candies are kept, I suspect another bag of these goodies will call out to me and ask to be taken home. Who am I to say no?


  1. Have you tried the Dark Chocolate Honey Mints? They come in a regularly sized bag, and each mint is individually wrapped - they are very similar to a York peppermint patty but better (and a little healthier)!

  2. I brought home a bag recently but haven't opened it yet. Still working on the Halloween candy that the trick-or-treaters didn't take.
