Melville Candy Company Review

I am a GIGANTIC fan of peppermint. I looooove peppermint bark, and any other sweet treat that combines peppermint and chocolate. I see a lot of peppermint chocolate candy in the drug stores now for the holidays, and it takes every ounce of my being not to buy every bag they have for sale. :)

Melville's Candy Company is a proud 25 year old family owned and operated business. We create gourmet custom shaped barley lollipops which bring back fond childhood memories using the same formula which was used over 75 years ago. We produce a variety of barley lollipops from Melville's Seacoast, Barnyard, Zoo animals collections and many, many more! Take a trip down memory lane as you view our wonderful collection which will delight young and old alike. In addition to barley lollipops, we create a wonderful product for tea and coffee drinkers. Melville's Clover Honey Spoons, and Chocolate Caramel spoons are just a few of the unique items which will make wonderful and unusual gifts. Each item we produce is hand made, packed and inspected before shipping which guarantees that you will receive an excellent product each and every time you place an order.

Melville's offers delicious chocolates among many other tasty items. The items at this company would make great gifts.
I was sent Melville's Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Cupcakes. The set contained 4 boxes of these heavenly treats. I couldn't wait to dig in!

These are pretty unique candies. It has the feel of a lollipop, but looks and tastes like candy. The "cupcake" is very cute too and has a generous amount of delicious pieces of crunchy, and frosty peppermint on top. The fluffy, gooey marshmallow is dipped in luscious smooth milk chocolate and placed on a stick. Upon first bite, the flavors of the chocolate, marshmallow and peppermint combined to form what is basically HEAVEN in your mouth! I absolutely loved it. I gobbled up the rest of the candy and banished myself to only having one. I can't get over how yummy these are. I loved the jelly bean on top too. These would be a great Christmas present for a teacher, friend, coworker, family member, etc. The candy is enough to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours, but not overly large.

It looks like I got my peppermint fix this holiday season!
