If Junior Mints (Michael Recchiuti's favorite 'candy' growing up!) or Peppermint Patties have been the guilty pleasures of your past, then you'll love our Peppermint Thins. Made with organic mint from the Willamette valley and enrobed in our custom blend of 64% semisweet chocolate, this peppermint confection elevates the best of your favorite childhood candies into a more nuanced delight.
"When he [father-in-law] received the package, he was of course excited, but as soon as he tried the Peppermint Thins he Facetimed me right away to let me know they were the best mint chocolate anything he had ever had. It was exactly the right kind of chocolate, the right amount of mind, the right consistency of filling, everything."
We used to purchase Recchiuti confections regularly (for ourselves and as gifts) in person at the Ferry Building, over many years, and we were always pleased with the quality of our purchases. This last holiday season, we ordered a few items on line, and we were very disappointed with them. They were just not as we remembered— they did not seem fresh, the texture of the chocolate was off, the peppermint filling was hard, and the packaging did not seem to have been assembled with care. Overall not a good experience, and it’s unlikely we will purchase from Recchiuti in the future.
Exceptional. Everything Recchiuti creates is perfection. The balance of mint to chocolate is wonderful.
