When I taught preschool, my favorite little boy would introduce himself to people by saying, "I come from Denmark!". It was true. Obviously, there must be something good going on in Denmark because he was rad.
When we were looking for an alternative to Holland Mints (mints coated in milk chocolate in a candy shell, which often come from California, not Holland!), we came across Denmark Mints. Not only are they from Denmark, they're dark chocolate, vegan, and perfection. They also have the ultimate candy shell-to-chocolate center ratio, which doesn't happen everyday! Please buy them so I don't eat that whole jar you see in the first photo.

*That's right! They're made by the same lentil-geniuses who created our beloved Dark Chocolate Licorice Lentils!
