Who's gonna turn down a Junior Mint?

Big Box of Junior Mints… as if a king size wasn’t enough, I recently indulged in the upgraded 12 oz. size of these minty pastels. I love junior mints. I highly recommend them frozen. The cold enhances the mint burst of refreshment… and slows down my consumption.

I will share that every time I eat out of the box, I manage to drop a junior mint into my collar. I’m lucky to finish a box without leaving chocolate smudges on my clothes behind. I understand that I am not the most coordinated person in the world, but eating candy has never been as challenging as yoga.

But as Kramer said on Seinfeld, "Who's gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It's chocolate, it's peppermint; it's delicious!”

My slip-up isn’t nearly as life altering as the accident featured on the Junior Mint episode,but it has increased my dry cleaning bill. I blame to minty aroma wafting out of the box for hypnotizing me beyond functioning normally.

Visiting the gym yesterday I was excited to see that even at a place dedicated to kicking my butt, a sugar addict can enjoy a little treat before a run. Slivers of truffles from Dean's Sweets in every imaginable flavor (tequila, caramel, maple and cayenne) are just the motivation I need to run another mile... and just what greeted me. Dean’s Sweets made the trek from Maine to Porter Square to introduce the diet tribe to their sinful handmade chocolates.

P.s. all these truffles come in dark chocolate. I encourage you all to give them a try.

  1. My girlfriend is a chocolate lover. So she is like a kid when she find a new flavor with chocolate, she doesn't anything behind. If the box has chocolate. She will eat it too.
