American Candy Haul #2

So last month you may have seen that a new sweet shop opened in my town which has inspired me to do monthly American Candy hauls! If you fancy a read of last months, check it out here. This month I purchased some Mint M&Ms (which I totally didn't know were a thing?!) Butterfinger bites, Jolly Rancher chews, Cookie Dough bites and Reese's peanut butter cups. I thought the same as last month I would say a little about each item and rate them for you guys. Let me know what I should buy next month in the comments!

Mint M&Ms
These are beyond amazing, honestly my new favourite thing on the planet and I would happily buy
like 50 packets if I had the money and they wouldn't make me the size of a house. I love anything mint flavoured and I love chocolate so these are the perfect candy for me. I am drawn in by the packaging too as it's a bright green and stands out from the rest.

Jolly Rancher Chews
I have actually tried Jolly Ranchers in a different form when I was in the states and loved them! When I saw they do chews I had to try them. To me they remind me of Fruitella's or chewits, but as these are tropical flavour it's just a tropical flavour instead. Although noone I live with likes the pineapple ones, the others went down pretty well my favourite being any of the pink ones. Although I think I prefer the original ones, as chewy sweets aren't my favourite.

Cookie Dough Bites
Last time I had the red velvet ones, which were beyond gross! This time I decided that I would try the cookie dough ones, I love cookie dough usually so it's a good test for me. When I tried these I just thought they tasted like chocolate, I couldn't taste any cookie dough and was disappointed again. Although they weren't as bad as the red velvet ones, I wouldn't buy them again.

Butterfinger Bites
These were one of the things which were recommended to me to try, so I did. I'd like to say I am not a fan at all in fact I hated them, I am not sure exactly what they are supposed to be but they just taste like nuts wrapped in chocolate and I hate nuts so these were not for me. My boyfriend and my house mate actually said they were okay, so none of us loved them.
Rating 2/10

Reece's Peanut Butter Cups
You can actually get these a lot more in the UK than what you could a few years ago, another thing I am not really a fan of but my boyfriend loved them so I think it's just me. To me they have the same consistency as caramel but just taste like peanut butter, which is obviously what they are. I enjoyed the chocolate itself just not the filling.
