Left over from Christmas, these Fudge Shoppe Merry Mint Patties from Keebler were 4 boxes for a dollar at a nearby closeout grocer. Let me tell you, it has been a long time since I have been able to buy something so awesome for a quarter. Especially since when these cookies were generally available, a 7.5-ounce box containing 18 small cookies sold for about $3.00.
These little minty morsels are a clever build of shortbread cookie topped with creamy mint patty, dipped in chocolatey fudge and striped with green frosting ribbons. They're incredible! They're like eating a cookie version of a York Peppermint Patty. They might even be better than Girl Scout Thin Mints. I can't believe there were enough left over from the holiday season that here we are in March and they're still trying to get rid of them. And at four boxes for a buck, no less!
If Merry Mint Patties come around for another holiday season next year, I might even pick some up at full price.
