Mint and chocolate in my mind are two great combinations. As long as the mint is just strong enough, but not too strong and the chocolate is an ok quality. The mint in these was nice, a little weak but I'd rather that than way too strong. I wasn't left with a minty feel in my mouth after so I guess that ok.

The cookie wasn't bad either. It's as if they took a popular M&M variation then added another variation on top of that. It's not the most creative idea in the world but at least it didn't leave me grossed out. I do enjoy the crunch the cookie gives and I'm particularly happy that they decided to use the cookie variation instead of the peanut ones.

Basically I guess what I'm saying is these aren't bad, but they don't really wow me at all. In fact I feel pretty indifferent about them. I couldn't say that I don't recommend them, but I could probably suggest a few better snacks around. Pretty "ho-hum" if you ask me.
