I TOLD you I don’t hate Mexican candy.
You didn’t believe me but it’s true. You are right, however that I AM biased against the entire genre. It’s like how I feel about dramadies – I loved Kramer vs. Kramer, but you better supply the bong and a littany of wisecracks if you think I’m gonna sit my ass down and ‘enjoy’ more than 10 mins of Boreless in Snoozeattle.
Someone brought us a slew of Mexi sweets…I really should remember who too since it was like 6 weeks and not 6 years ago….Anyway, one of the things that came with this Latin grab bag were green little choco mints called Chocoretas.
Simply put: I Like em. They taste like dark chocolate in a hard candy shell; a thickish shell – more like what’s on Smarties candies and not so much what you find on M&Ms. These are indeed minty – not like mint ice cream, stronger than that. More like what you find in an Andies mint candy but not so posh. They are small, little round balls so you can stuff a ton in your mouth.
(Insert over-used off color remark here)
And they give you a strange feeling of being refreshing. Which weirds me out a little cuz how can “chocolate” and “refreshing” even be in the same sentence? They can’t. I call bullshit.
