York Peppermint Pattie

20 03 2007


When I received my packs of Peanut Butter M&M’s, I was also given a complimentary York Peppermint Pattie, which I thought was quite kind. I have recently consumed the ‘pattie’ and so here’s the review.

I’m not a huge fan of dark chocolate, because I lack the self control to really taste and appreciate chocolate, and am more interested with eating it, I can never seem to get to grips with it. It just tastes bitter and unpleasant to me. The York Peppermint Pattie is dark chocolate, with a peppermint fondant inside. Like a lot of American chocolate, this is made by the Hershey Corporation. In my experience, this means the chocolate will contain vast amounts of sugar, and the quality of the chocolate will be relatively poor. And with this being dark chocolate which I don’t usually like, and Peppermint which I’m not overly fond with, I really wasn’t expecting much.

However, I was surprised. The taste is familiar, I’m sure we have brands like this in England, or at least used to. The chocolate isn’t bitter at all, it’s actually quite sweet, and the Peppermint fondant isn’t hot, it tastes like Peppermint, yet is cool and nice. As far as mint based chocolate goes, it wasn’t nearly as nice as the Peppermint Aero, yet it was still pretty good. Looking at the ingredients, sugar of course comes first, with ‘semi-sweet chocolate’ second, the semi-sweet chocolate ingredient looks like an average recipe of milk chocolate, so I’m not too sure how they made it dark, I assume they added just enough cocoa to constitute it as dark chocolate.

Each Pattie contains 140 calories. They only have 2.5g of fat, but 31g of Carbs, with sugars making up 25g of them. Considering how small each Pattie is, that’s slightly worrying, and certainly not something that you could overindulge in. These are good, but I won’t be looking to import them, if you live in America you probably know about them already though.
