Being the big fan of Nestle that I am, I got excited to try the new limited holiday flavor and packaging from Wonka. Earlier this year, WONKA launched a new line of premium chocolates called WONKA Exceptionals. I’d tried the WONKA Exceptionals once before this review and the one I tried was pretty good. It was a premium chocolate experience that came in cute purple packaging. Now, they’ve added Peppermint Shortbread to this line.
I actually really like mint-flavored things, so this product seemed interesting to me. The combination of chocolate, peppermint, and shortbread makes it the perfect holiday candy. So, I tried the candy, hoping for goodness. I’m glad to report that I was not let down. The candy tasted delicious! I couldn’t really pick up on the shortbread in the candy, but the chocolate and peppermint was great! I had my dad try it without telling him what it was and said he could taste the peppermint in it, but didn’t mention shortbread. So, if you are hoping for a big bite of shortbread, this isn’t that. However, if you’re going for peppermint and chocolate, then this is perfect. I really like these candies.
Addtionally, WONKA Exceptionals are perfectly sized for stocking stuffers! Plus, the candies are individually wrapped so you can open up a box and leave them in a dish for people to come by and grab a handful. This would be a hit in the dorm (if I was into sharing) or a family get together these holidays. Plus, the individual packaging is festive and pretty.
These Exceptionals are the perfect companion to the also new holiday packaging for the Nestle Crunch by Paul Frank.
As you can see, Nestle has come out with some awesome holiday treats and I enjoy them all! Haha! I’m one of Nestle’s biggest fans at this point!
