Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies and Ritter Sport Strawberry Creme

Some people don't like the foolishness of Tumblr, so I've decided to post what I put on Tumblr onto here as well.

Andes Chocolate Mints were one of those candies that I loved as a kid, but didn’t know what they were called until I was much older. I found out that a lot of my students actually liked them as well. I’m sure that you’re familiar with Andes Chocolate Mints in one form or another, but if you’re not, it is a thin piece of dark chocolate with a thin, creamy mint part in the middle. In a word, delicious. Therefore, I could not pass up buying this product:


Who knew that Andes made cookies? I’m not sure if this is recent or not; I didn’t take the time to look it up. However, the picture on the box reminds me of a Kiebler or Snackwells product. Speaking of which, do Snackwells cookies still exist? I haven’t seen them in a while. I guess they’re not as popular as they once were.

The cookie reminded me greatly of an Andes Chocolate Mint, which means that it was delicious. The texture and form it came in may have been different from an Andes Chocolate Mint, but the flavor was the same. If you can imagine an Andes Chocolate Mint with the texture and mouth-feel of a cookie, this is what you get. Overall, a great product, but I wonder why I haven’t seen them anywhere else besides Walgreen’s.

Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies: 10/10

Chris' take on Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies: Just bought the Andes cookies yesterday in fact. My review before reading yours, 8/10, doesn't quite live up to it's older, smaller, and better brother.

It seems as if a company finally decided to listen to me and distribute a strawberry chocolate candy in America. It may have taken a while for them to hear my cries, but we’ve finally made it. I take all the credit for this. Anyway, here it is:


I was not too excited, however, when I found out it was a Ritter Sport chocolate square. I’ve purchased Ritter Sport products in the past, and time and time again I’ve been disappointed. I rate them only higher than Wonka chocolates. It may be my taste buds, but their chocolate isn’t that great to me. I prefer Hershey’s chocolate bars. Also for their price, I would much rather purchase a Lindt chocolate bar or a Milka chocolate bar. According to the wrapper, buying this is for a good cause though, so I can’t complain about that.

Alright, the chocolate wasn’t great again, but I liked the filling. If the chocolate was better, then I would like it a lot more. Some may find the strawberry filling too sweet, but I liked it, even though in the past I may have complained about some things being too sweet. Ritter Sport should start adding something into their chocolate too make it richer, because that’s my main gripe with their chocolate. However, the filling saves this chocolate square, and hopefully they listen to more of my ideas.
