Peppermint Crisp (a little long)

Jonathan Saw | Mar 7, 2003 11:27 AM

Anyone know where to get this in NYC?

Was recently very disappointed when I bought a Cadbury Mint Crisp from the shop next to Tea and Sympathy. I mistook it for Nestle's Peppermint Crisp that a former co-worker of mine used to have sent from South Africa.

The difference between them is that Peppermint Crisp has long thin hollow tubes of peppermint candy, bunched together and covered in milk chocolate. It looks like a regular candy bar but when you bite into it there's a great crunch of peppermint.

Mint Crip is milk chocolate with flakes of spearmint/peppermint sprinkled throughout, sort of like a Nestle's Crunch bar but instead of rice you have mint chips. Definitely a pale immitation of Peppermint crisp and too sweet.

There is an online place in North Carolina that you can order it and other South African products from (see below) but was hoping there was a place in town.
