read past reviews here). I love them. I wait all year for them. In fact, they are one of the very few examples of Limited Edition seasonal candy that I prefer over the original. It's not like they are so different from classic Junior Mints. However, the Christmas Edition has red sugar crystals embedded in the chocolate coating which adds a tiny bit of crunch to each bite. There's something really satisfying about that added crunch to the all-soft candy. It gives each bite more substance. I wish there was a way for Junior Mints to have these on the market year-round.
Score: (a festive and hearty) 5
