These taste as if they were a super high-end version of Smarties (I mean the Canadian/British ones). They're a little bigger than Smarties and the chocolate, oh dear god, the chocolate is so good. With anything that has the word "Galaxy" on it, you are assured to have good chocolate or my name isn't "Candy Critic". I can't stop eating these things.

A strange thing I notice when I start into these is the possibility of a mint flavour, but I'm not too sure. I tasted it at first, but the more I eat the less I taste the mint. It might be a little bit of the chocolate flavour just giving me a strange reaction or something. Not that it really matters, since I don't mind the mint and chocolate combo, but I just can't get my finger on it.

I guess I have to say that these are a great. The chocolate is really the big selling point, though. Not that it's a bad thing. I always give high credit to those who can make what's simple work; I feel they deserve more kudos than those who just fill you up with a whole lot of excess.
