Ironic Chocolate Mints

Yesterday after her class, your Chocolate Priestess went to the gift shop of the university museum where I've seen some chocolate related products for sale.  I got two things.  One of this is in this little box you see below.  These are "Irony Chocolate" by Hint Mint.




This weights only 0.33oz and has 9 servings of tiny 0.25in diameter mints for a grand total of 22.5 calories in the entire box.  Cocoa Powder is the second ingredient on the list but there are also two artificial sweetners: Sorbitol and Sucralose in here along with menthol, calcium stearate, and natural flavors.  As you can see below these are tiny mints and 6 of them make one of the 9 servings.  The little metal box slides open with some effort to reveal the inside that has a open square you can shake the mints from.  Be careful because it is very easy to get too many at once.




These weren't cheap, nothing in the art museum gift shop is but since they don't charge money to go into the museum, they make some of their funds from the gift shop.  This tiny box was $2.19.   The mints start off very cocoay but then turn very minty quickly especially if you suck on more than one at a time.  This may be a fairly new product since their website is under development but they are a division of Hint Mint which has been in business a decade.  These were a nice very mouth cooling guilt free treat.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.

I thought the name was pretty funny myself.

Mints are pretty common but I find it hard to get that chocolate mint balance.
