Taste test: From the name, I figured these were just a ripoff of Junior Mints, but they came in a large box for just a dollar, so they seemed worth a try.
I opened the box and was a bit disappointed that the clear bag inside wasn't entirely filled with Mini Mints. However, the Nutrition Facts indicated 2 servings of 11 Mini Mints each, and the box contained exactly 22 of them, so I can't really complain. The major difference between these and Junior Mints was the shape, as these were roughly spherical, versus the round-but flattened shape of Junior Mints. The texture was less soft than Junior Mints, but the taste was similar, with a peppermint filling and a dark chocolate coating. These seemed less minty than Junior Mints, but they were still quite minty. Pretty good.
