Merry Christmas - Minty Goodness

This time of year brings out all sorts of minty treats such as candy canes. I even got a Christmas card this year full of propaganda on the origins of the candy cane, most of which are debunked by Snopes (I am the Urban Legend police, but that's a whole other post). I don't like candy canes per se, but if you crush them up and put them in peppermint bark, I'm all over it. Lately, I've found some other great minty sources that are relatively inexpensive.

3 Musketeers Mint - I don't normally like 3 Musketeers either, too squishy and not enough chocolate. But these 3 Musketeers Mint are beautiful white inside, with a delicious fluffy mint center. Like a fluffy York Peppermint Patty. Better than either a regular 3 Musketeers or a York Peppermint Patty alone.

Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses - They are just like peppermint bark with crushed candy canes in them.  If you're a mint and white chocolate fan, this is a total treat.

Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe Joe's - These are Oreo-like cookies with crushed candy canes in the centers. Delicious! And a perfect snack for Santa.

Merry Christmas everyone!
