Hershey's Mint Miniatures

The Mint Miniatures are milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, and white confection infused with peppermint flavor. They smelled strongly of mint, even when they were still sealed inside the bag. I stored them separate from my other candy because I was afraid the mint would infect the other goods.

Mint Milk Chocolate: These are very strongly minted. Seriously. The blast of cool peppermint is really too much for me. I didn’t enjoy the intense mint mixed with so much sweet chocolate. Rating: 4/10

Mint Sweet Chocolate: The mint flavor is more subtle here. Mint seems to compliment darker chocolate better, and this is much more pleasant that the milk variety. Rating: 5/10

Mint White Crème with Candy Bits: These are basically flat Candy Cane Kisses studded with red and green nonpareils, so I’ll just refer you back to that review. I know I gave those a better rating, but I'm sick of white confection.. I want some white chocolate! Rating: 6/10

Overall, I wasn’t too crazy about these, which I think is reflected in the quick review. The best tasting were the white, but I only had a couple because, like the Candy Cane Kisses, they are made with inferior ingredients.

this is the second candy review that i've seen saying they like the milk chocolate one the least, which i find crazy, because i l-o-v-e-LOVE those. if the person who left the last comment is still looking for these, they're no longer in stores. i did find them through the oriental trading company online, though.

I have been buying these at Christmastime and they are so addictive! I actually am crazy nutso over the milk chocolate ones. It's different from everybody else's mint milk chocolate--much more minty! The key is the extreme mintiness combined with the creamy chocolate. Wish Hershey's made these available for a longer period of time. I hate when I run out of these. I don't care that much for the dark chocolate - too sweet and not enough mint.

The mint are the best! They're a perfect combo of mint and chocolate to me. I also find the dark ones not minty enough, but weirdly sweet. And the white ones were a let down, I also wish badly they were white chocolate and not 'white creme' which I find ... sucks.

Hey excellent blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a great deal of work?

I've no understanding of coding however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I just needed to ask. Many thanks!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
