Mint condition: when you get a craving for something cool and green (possibly coated in chocolate) so strong that it drives you mad. Here’s the cure! Tucked between two thick layers of pure cacao deliciousness is an irresistibly creamy, minty filling made with all-natural ingredients, including a surprise that adds an unexpected vitamin boost. Who would have guessed a leafy green veggie could be snuck into a piece of candy?
