Hershey Has Done it Again! Part 2: Electric Boogaloo

Apparently, the fine folks at Hershey have way more faith in their Iced Tea Ice Breakers than I imagined. The other day while standing in line at my local Target, I spied not one, but two more varieties of the Iced Tea mints: Peach and Raspberry. I quickly snatched up the Raspberry one since Peach is not my thing. 

I can safely report that it is a tasty little treat. Lemon is still my horse, but these will do in a pinch. I'm surprised that there is apparently a line of Iced Tea Mints now. Normally, anything that I like is quickly cancelled forever (ie BBQ Chex Mix and Southwest Salsa Style Munchems). My grandmother even wrote a letter to Ralston Brands in an attempt to revive BBQ Chex Mix to no avail. I was a fiend for that stuff. I used to get it as gifts for birthdays and Christmas. NO joke.

When I go back to Target, I'll pick up the Peach ones for the sake of experimentation. I can't leave my readers out in the cold after all. 

I'm here for you! (Not really. This little blog is nothing more than a giant ego stroke.)


  1. Dear Readers,

    The Raspberry ones suck.


  2. I don't think I have any readers.

  3. Kenny Mat made me try the Ice Tea ones and I liked them a great deal. But would you say that they are less of a mint and more of a delightful treat? I feel like if I had some sort of funky breath thing going on, it wouldn't cover it up. Don't get me wrong... I loved em. But I also felt like they made me thirsty. I'm looking for your wisdom, Prince.

  4. I feel that it is a delightful treat that also freshens your breath. When you chomp on them with your teeth you can feel the retsin or whatever pop out.

    The box even says its a mouth-freshener. I think it makes my breath smell like Iced Tea. Kendra says it also smells a little bit like funk too.

  5. Oh, that's why you were all up in my face breathing on me last night.
