York Peppermint Patty Pieces

After I tried and loved Almond Joy Pieces, I thought it was worth giving the rest of the line-up a try, so I picked up this bag of York Peppermint Patty Pieces.

York Peppermint Patty Pieces

They’re described as peppermint flavored dark chocolate candy in a crunchy shell. They are sugar-shelled lentil candies, approximately M&M sized.

The York Pieces have a jaunty color scheme of pure white and bright navy blue. Like the Almond Joy Pieces, the sugar shell on these is thicker than that of M&Ms.

The chocolate within is solid, with a cool and fatty melt – emphasis on the fatty. It feels almost slippery as it melts but lingers as a matte finish on the tongue when it’s gone.

The chocolate has the airy essence of peppermint oil, but the flavor isn’t too heavy-handed, allowing the dark cocoa powder notes of the chocolate to come through.

The Conclusion?

I enjoyed them, but they weren’t nearly as tasty or as exciting as the Almond Joy version. When I eat Almond Joy Pieces, I don’t want to stop snacking on them. The York Pieces weren’t so addictive that I couldn’t make my bag last for weeks.

I think they could be fun to bake with. In some homemade take on a Thin Mint, perhaps? I feel these deserve an OM. Since that was the rating that I gave the Almond Joy Pieces, they’re getting upgraded to an OMG.

    I have these on my desk at work! Not by choice – I’m temporarily at the desk of someone who is out of town for a few weeks, and I’ve eaten… uh, well, enough of them that she’s definitely going to notice. I’ll have to buy her some new ones before she gets back!

    I support the idea of baking with them, and might try that this weekend. I think they’d be great scattered in a not-too-dense chocolate cookie.

    Or brownies. York Peppermint Patties in brownies with a chocolate frosting on top. A bit heavy though and rather sweet, but my mouth is watering already.
