The 8 Best Peppermint Candies to Buy

Hello, friend. We know that you have a hankering for the best peppermint candy. Although, with so many peppermint candy options in the world, decision paralysis can occur. We’re here to help. Here is a list of the best peppermint candy we’ve tasted. ‘Tis the season.

Trader Joe’s Peppermint Pretzel Slims

This seasonal Trader Joe’s peppermint sweet is super snackable and riddled with flavor. The pretzel-to-peppermint flavor ratio is just right, making for a nice balance of sweet and salty without the peppermint being too overpowering. If you’re a pretzel girly, pick this up.

Williams Sonoma the Original Peppermint Bark

If you’re looking for the best peppermint bark, then look no further! The metal tin it comes in makes it seem super fancy. And the peppermint pieces sprinkled on top of this layered white and dark chocolate bark are crunchy and sweet. This bark also has a medium thickness, so it doesn’t feel stingy. Understandably, Sporked editor-in-chief Justine Sterling keeps this on hand in her household during Christmastime.

Kirkland Peppermint Bark

Alternatively, you might prefer Costco’s Kirkland Peppermint Bark if you are all about that thin and delicate peppermint bark life. This bark is delicious—it’s a mix of dark chocolate and white chocolate, with shards of peppermint on top of it.

Lindt Peppermint White Chocolate Truffles

Indulging in this Lindt truffle feels a little sinful, but there’s something a bit enticing about that. As Billie Eilish sings, “All the good girls go to hell.”

The outside of the truffle has a classic peppermint swirl look, and when you bite in, there’s no crunchiness. The buttery creaminess will flood your senses. If you are not afraid of mint, you might like this better than the classic Lindt truffle options.

Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane

This is another white chocolate-and-peppermint-flavored treat that slaps. The peppermint stripes on this Hershey’s Kiss are warmly festive. And that thin aluminum foil is just plain timeless. I like that this candy has a crunchy element because of the minty candy cane bits within.

If you want to feel a bit old-fashioned, buy some candy canes! Why not?? Imagine that you are in a work meeting (and it’s not December), and you are sucking the flavor from a 10/10 traditional candy cane. You will seem dapper and mysterious. Who doesn’t want to seem dapper and mysterious?! Doscher’s Peppermint Candy Canes are the because they are sturdy and thicker than a normie candy cane.

York Peppermint Patties

The OG York Peppermint Patties also hit the spot. If you want to really make the most of this chocolate and peppermint combo, put it in the freezer! When in doubt, freeze it out.
