Pros: Low in fat, and rich in taste
Cons: Hard to read best buy date.
York Peppermint Patties are a huge hit with my husband. I like them too. You can find them in all different sizes from the 2oz, to miniatures. They come wrapped in a silver plastic wrapper with the blue and white YORK logo in the front. I pay around 50 cents for a 2oz bar at a discount grocery store.
York is a Hershey product so you know it has to be good. I don't think there is a Hershey product out there that I don't care for. What your getting with a York Candy is a white, soft and moist peppermint flavored round and flat pattie confection covered in dark chocolate. It is simple, and it is good. They are spectacular when they are fresh. I am looking on this package and can't find an expiration date anywhere. I dislike that. There is something stamped right under the Nutrition Information, but it barely noticeable and doesn't look like a date.
Anyway.. In my own opinion I love to eat York patties when they have been in the freezer. They taste great frozen. They become hard, and then chewy. I like them that way. My husband would tend to disagree.
I don't normally eat or like dark chocolate. I don't seem to mind it at all when I am eating a York Peppermint Pattie. The Peppermint over powers the chocolate in a nice way. Your focus is on the peppermint flavor with a hint of chocolate. It works well. It is simple, and Hersheys has been making this product for years. It is popular. I like to purchase them during the holidays. For some reason it reminds me of winter. I live in florida and it doesn't snow here. I miss my cool winters. Grandma would always buy these for us around Christmas time.

The taste of York has been a nice reminder of my childhood, and the taste is fantastic. This candy is low in fat, and strong in flavor. These covered mint patties are the freshest tasting patties I have tried. They are so soft to bite into compared to other brands. They leave no strange aftertaste. I love them frozen the best. I highly recommend them if you love peppermint, or are just looking for something sweet that is low in fat.
*note(In addition):* Can't have the sugar? They also make York Dark Chocolate Covered Peppermint Patties in sugar free. They are just as tasty! You can't believe they are sugar free. I can't tell the difference between the sugar free and the regular. They are that good. If you can't find the sugar free ones in your grocery store, try at most major pharmacies, for some reason I have been able to find them there.
