I admit, there’s lots of Jelly Belly’s line of confections that I’ve never had before. I’ve never tried their candy corn, their bridge mix, and until this review their Dutch Mints. I don’t really know what Dutch Mints are per se, as they look like generic mints you see at most restaurants and such. I went into this purchase not really knowing what I was getting into.
The mints are little round balls, which are about the same size. They’re a little smaller than marbles, more like wasabi peas. The mints come in pastel colors of white, pink, green and purple. They’re quite cute.
They’re light in my hand, and as I popped one in my mouth, I realized I wasn’t sure what to expect from these. Well, except some mintiness of course.
The shell is thin and very crispy crunchy. It breaks easily when I bit down. Underneath is a layer of chocolate, then a mint fondant center. The mint part is fresh and not overpowering. It mixes nicely with the chocolate to form a contrast of fresh mintiness and the deep, sweet chocolate.
Considering I’m pretty lukewarm on minty candies, I found these quite lovely. I really liked them. The bag I bought quickly disappeared and I plan on getting more when I see them again.
