Mint Buds


I decided to take a picture of the French side of the package because I wanted to show my pride for this Canadian treat, and how much I love the French Canadians that make up part of our culture. That, or I thought it was interesting how long and convoluted the French translation of Mint Bud was. Honestly, I just goofed up, photographed the French side of the package, and I'm a little too lazy to re-take the picture. At least you can say you learned something new today, if you’re in France, Quebec, or any other French speaking country and you want some Mint Buds, you’ll know exactly how to say it.

I've always had a soft spot for chocolate Buds, rosettes, or what ever you want to call these little chocolate drop like treats. They where one of my favorite treats as a kid, and remain a classic staple in my treat diet today. I’m not sure what makes this shape tasty, or work well, but this bud like shape seems to melt really well in your mouth when you eat it. There’s also something pleasing about biting into a chocolate bud that you just don’t get from a square of chocolate.

I'm also into chocolate mint as well, however, I'm not sure why. If I think about it, I can't really say why chocolate and mint work so well together, but they do. These Mint Buds are simple, and the mint flavour is just nice. For some the minty smell is pretty strong (maybe a little too strong). I had the box of these Mint Buds sealed in my office, and I could smell them when they where about 4 feet away from me.

So, with a great mint to chocolate ratio, and a fun bud shape, I would say that these are pretty good, and I think I'm going to finish the rest of the box off right now.
