Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Peppermint Theme Week.
Today's Peppermint Dark Chocolate Candies from Little Secrets, LLC (Boulder, CO) were made with (Fair Trade) 55% Cocoa.
These festive red and white chocolate mint discs with crunchy candy shells contained "over 74% Fair Trade ingredients" overall, and no artificial colors or flavors. (The company used/uses fruit and vegetable extracts for coloring.)
The refreshing peppermint flavor was nicely balanced with the dark chocolate centers.
These would seem to be a perfect transition candy between Christmas and Valentines Day, if you can still find them on the shelves in January or February.
