Hoorah for Mint!

March 18, 2007 at 4:06 am 9 comments


Last weekend, I journeyed to Philadelphia to attend the famous Philadelphia flower show.  As usual, the wonderful floral event did not disappoint.  This year’s theme was Legends of Ireland.  We were treated to beautiful landscapes, traditional Irish gardens, Irish singers and dancers along with the classic spring favorites, tulips, daffodils and the like.  If you have never been, you must go at least once.   

Visiting Philadelphia always turns into and eating and snacking affair, but my big treat discovery did not happen until I stopped at the supermarket to stock up on snacks for the ride home.  I made an amazing new discovery – Mint Kandy Kakes from TastyKake.  mint-kake-2.jpg

 My favorite Philly treat had gone “Minty” just in time for St. Patty’s Day.  If you love the Girl Scout Thin Mints, you’ll flip over these new TastyKakes.  My favorite way to eat Kandy Kakes is straight out of the freezer.

  I love when the dark chocolate coating has a little crunch to it and the creme is cool and firm rather than mushy.  

Don’t miss these delicious new treats.  Sometimes these new flavors are just a “seasonal treat” for a limited time, so don’t miss out on this one.

    I love TandyKakes and Girl Scout Mint Cookies-this sounds like a match made in heaven. Too bad they don’t sell TastyKakes in south Georgia (or maybe not!)

    Tastykakes are fine, but they need to broaden their flavors. Let me suggest a novel taste treat: Hazelnut Juniors!

    Hazelnut juniors miight just appeal to some people, although there are naysayers in my own family that would have a problem with that flavor.

    Hazelnuts are not for everyone. They are best in a sponge cake, birthday cake, made by the Swiss Pastry Shoppe ..with stores in Atlantic City and In town Phila…Unfortunately, they are no longer in existance.
