Inside Out

Inside Out Junior Mints

As the character Kramer from Seinfeld once rightfully declared, “Who’s gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It’s chocolate, it’s peppermint — it’s delicious!” Junior Mints are one of my favorite candies, especially at the movies when they do double duty of making a great snack and keeping your breath minty fresh. The peppermint flavor is also perfect for the holiday season, and we usually have a bowl filled with them on my Aunt’s table every christmas.

This Christmas my Aunt surprised us all with a new kind of Junior Mint that is “inside out.” The Inside Out Junior Mints have white chocolate coating on the outside and a minty dark chocolate center, instead of the usual dark chocolate exterior and white mint filling (note: the package never actually calls the outside or inside filling “chocolate,” but it’s close enough.) I was intrigued and tried a few, but was rather disappointed since the outside coating is uncharacteristically crunchy and doesn’t melt in your mouth like the original. This inside out variety is fun for the holidays, but I would turn down this version any day for the original.

Inside Out Junior Mints
Available at Target, Walmart and other convenience stores for a limited time.

Speaking of Seinfeld, I finally tried the babka from Bea’s Bakery today! Oh my gosh. Thank you, thank you for the rec. I will post an L.A. dessert wrap-up when I get back to New York.

I agree with Kelli, there’s nothing like the original Jr. Mint. Jessica, I can’t wait to read your LA dessert wrap up. I live in LA & will definitely have to check out your stops starting with my favorite place, Bea’s Bakery!

It’s a junior mint! I prefer the original myself, however it’s a nice change. Kramer did say it best however, “it’s delicious!” Happy 2006!
