Chocolate review: Montezuma's Minted Milk Chocolate with Crunchy Peppermint

Montezuma's Minted is milk chocolate with crunchy peppermint. We had been putting off eating this bar as we were not fond of mint with chocolate (and vice versa). We had tasted other mint and chocolate combinations and prior to Minted, all others seemed to be dominated by the taste of the mint. In this case, the fusion is perfect and you don't get what would taste like toothpaste mixed with chocolate in some other chocolates. To be fair, I'm sure there are other good chocolate and mint concoctions out there especially with the more established and expensive chocolatiers. I do remember pralines from Godiva that were good as well as those from Frango that we did like. But these were small pieces and not the bars that we usually buy.

Minted contained a minimum of 43% cocoa solids
After tasting Montezuma's Minted, we are now wondering what their Chili chocolate would taste like. We have one bar in the refrigerator awaiting to be sampled (and likely consumption) and based on Minted, perhaps this bar will also be better than what we had tasted before.
