Candy Review: Andes Cherry Jubilee Thins

Andes Cherry Jubilee Thins

I don’t understand why I am hesitant to eat mint-flavored candy. I mean, I do like the taste of it. Hand me a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream and watch me make it disappear in seconds. But probably because of my dislike for gum, I avoid most mint products. It isn’t that there isn’t a non-gum mint candy out there, but not enough of them, and not enough of them done well.

As I strolled down the candy aisle at my local Dollar Tree Store, a pretty red box caught my attention. “Andes Cherry Jubilee Thins” the box proclaimed. Hmm I thought. I never much cared for regular Andes Thins: Crème de Menthe, but we all know that I am a sucker for fruit in chocolate.

Maybe because it was the cherry, maybe it was because I wanted to branch out from my mint horizons, or maybe I will just buy candy because I love it, but whatever the reason, I picked up a box and headed to the register with a dollar clenched in my fist.

Candy Review: Hershey’s Bliss Creme de Menthe Meltaways

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Mint Candy,New Candy

Mint BlissIt’s no secret to our regular Candy Addict readers that I am slightly obsessed with all things mint chocolate. There is something quite perfect about the combination: the creaminess of milk chocolate matched with the cool snap of peppermint is a marriage made in Candy Addict heaven. So you can imagine how excited I was when I came across Hershey’s Bliss Creme de Menthe candies.

I was already a Hershey’s Bliss fan; their milk chocolate meltaways are currently competing with Dove Milk Chocolate Promises as the dominant milk chocolate pieces in my big red candy bowl. I was actually surprised at how tasty the Bliss chocolates are; Hershey’s chocolate, to me, always seems to have a slightly bitter, waxy taste, but the Bliss pieces are creamy and delicious and the exact opposite of your standard Hershey’s chocolate bar.

Candy Review: Crème de Menthe and Chocolate Crème de Menthe Altoids

Dark Chocolate Dipped Creme de Menthe Altoids

I’ve always appreciated the aggressive nature of Altoids. They simply aren’t a wallflower candy. Instead, they are more like the uncle who has one too many at family gatherings and inevitably ends up dancing with his shirt off or passed out under a porch. These are mints you eat with anticipation. You know that there will be flavor, oh yes, and sometimes it may slightly overwhelm you with potency. But, like the expectation of a wacky uncle’s trademark bad behavior, there is something comforting about the flavor and effectiveness of Altoids. After all, they consistently freshen even the most critically vile breath.

The new Crème de Menthe and Dark Chocolate Dipped Crème de Menthe are no exception. And I’ll say it right now: they are delicious.
