Giveaway Announcement and REVIEW: St. Claire’s Organic Peppermints

First of all I have an exciting announcement. Every week in August, LWF will hold a giveaway of a package of 12+ gluten free snacks, desserts, and foods. I will provide a list of all the products included so you can see what you’re winning. I’ll use Rafflecopter, and if you’ve already followed me on Twitter, don’t worry – you’ll still be able to enter the giveaway by telling me what you’d like to see on this site. I’ll have a different question every week.

Okay, on with the review!

St. Claire’s Organics is a company that offers mints, hot cocoa mixes, candy, and more that are organic, GMO free, vegetarian (sometimes fully vegan), gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, casein free, peanut and tree nut free, corn free, soy free, shellfish and fish free, and gelatin free.

The very first indication of how good these would be was that their peppermint smell escaped the packaging, which was very appealing. Mints are meant to be strong to ensure they work and don’t just taste good. It’s always a good sign to smell them through the package.

When I popped one into my mouth, I thought it had just the right balance of light sweetness and a hearty peppermint flavor. Not overpowering, but just right. The flavor was consistent until the mint was fully dissolved, and it left a very pleasant aftertaste when was gone. That’s not something that I can say for every mint I’ve tasted, so I was particularly happy with that.

These are as good as the best artificially flavored mints, but of course they’re a much healthier alternative. With these, you avoid artificial sweeteners and other common chemicals. Plus you’re buying them for a good cause: 10% of the profits for these mints goes to the EthnoMedicine Preservation Project. See the picture above for what they do.

It’s an easy switch to move from mints with preservatives and other unreadable things and only use these going forward.
