Andes chocolates are exceptionally creamy and full of tantalizing chocolate, but their greatest feature is the way they seamlessly blend accentuating flavors into each bite-sized piece. No need to worry about chocolate crumbling as a gooey filling drips down your chin!And the thin stripe of mint in the middle adds a subtle Andes Crème de Menthe.
These Thins aren't named for the mountain chain, you know. This signature blend of rich chocolate and creamy mint was invented in 1921 by a candy maker in Chicago who had named his candy store, Andy's Candies, after himself. He quick found - duh! - that men didn't like giving their wives and girlfriends boxes of candy with another man's name on them ("Here, honey, this is from me," "Really? Because it looks like it came from Andy.")
He changed the spelling to Andes, forever associating the melt-in-your-mouth blend of chocolate and mint with cool mountain peaks. These distinctive chocolate mints have become the after-dinner mint of choice in restaurants everywhere, most notably Olive Garden®. Serve them after an elegant meal, leave them out in a lacquered box for guests, or pop them into Christmas stockings. (Did you know that they also come in toffee crunch flavor? Just in case mint's not your thing.)
