They taste really awesome, I swear. So great, in fact, that I spent the last forty minutes wrestling with the lid of the tin, trying to get to the candy.
It’s like a York peppermint pattie, except the filling is just a teensy bit stiffer. It’s coated with chocolate, and then that’s coated with a white candy shell.
It is not, however, a breath mint. It will not freshen your breath, and it certainly won’t deal with any more serious breath problems. Worse, as good as they taste, they’re practically impossible to open.
Screwdriver didn’t work. The scissor blade didn’t work. My hands didn’t work, and I crunched two fingernails.
A nail file--if pointed in just the right way, then finagled in just the right way--will open it, within a very reasonable ten or fifteen minutes.
I just wish they weren’t so damned good. They’re a damned inconvenience, that’s for sure! Have you tried them? And what lengths will you go to for chocolate?
