MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 11, 2013

"These are super yummy...but I had to improvise. You can't get Andes candies in Canada, so I used peppermint oil in regular (well, it was still good quality) chocolate. Except that I found them in the Christmas candy aisle for the first time. But now you can't get green cream in the cream filled cookies; but you can them in pink cream from a different brand. It's all good..."

"these are great! I use Andes baking bits instead of the full mints."
