The pros: If you like Junior Mints candy, you are going to enjoy this candy that tastes similarly, except it's on a larger scale. To ensure that you are not unclear that these are minty, they've added some chopped up peppermint for added flavor and texture. Smooth and creamy inside that when cut open will eventually (and slowly) melt out.
The cons: If you were hoping for the more solid filling like that of a York Peppermint Patty you might not like the soft filling here.
The verdict: For $2.99 for 15 full bite size candies this is more than worth it. They remind me of my favorite candy but on a larger scale. Eating one of these would be like popping 3 junior mints in your mouth at one time. The peppermint candy topping was a nice break in texture. They even have a bit of a homemade aspect to them as they are not 100% uniform in the chocolate coating.

What you get in the box:
So good and such a seasonal flavor. I'll be picking up a few more of these while they are still on the shelves. The weather has shifted and so has the special flavors of the season; we've gone from pumpkin to peppermint, which won't be here for very long. Great value for $2.99.
