More Halloween candy! I’m bound to have diabetes by the time this month is over. Today we’re taking a look at the new York Peppermint Pumpkinmint Patties. I’m not sure when York started doing these Pumpkin shaped Peppermint Patties, but this is the first year I’ve seen them out. They may have been around a few years and just not gotten noticed.

They come in a classic York silver bag, but this one has a lot of retro styled pumpkin scribbles on it. I really like the design here as it reminds me of Halloween decorations from the 50’s. There’s also a couple of spots of really bight silver reflective paper. Cut this up and glue it to your bike for nighttime riding!

The individual treats are wrapped in the reflective paper and the design mimics that of the larger bag. I guess you’re supposed to hand these out individually to kids. It says there are 24 in a bag. I’ve already eaten quite a few, so I dunno if I’ll have any left by Halloween to give to the kids. Then again, last year it seemed like we only had a dozen or so Trick or Treaters.

The York patty inside forgoes it’s normal shape for that of a pumpkin. Kudos on the design here as it definitely looks like both a York Peppermint Patty and a pumpkin. It’s both familiar and new at the same time.

But I know you’re asking me, NEWT HOW DOES IT TASTE? Well, it tastes exactly like a regular York Peppermint Patty. That’s alright by me, I quite like the regular York product. Sometimes when I bite into a York Peppermint Patty, I get the sensation that I am whirling down the alps at high speeds about to high jump over snow topped pine trees! Okay, maybe I don’t… But I used to like those commercials.

The Halloween York Peppermint Patties may taste the same as normal, but York has definitely provided a very seasonal treat. The orange coloring on the inside of the pumpkin designed shape, really helps set it apart from the regular York Peppermint Patty. Lots of candy companies simply put their regular candy into Halloween themed packages, but kudos to York for going the extra mile.
