Niagara Chocolates Milk Chocolate with Mint Cookie

Niagara Chocolates Milk Chocolate with Mint CookieI picked up this bar of Niagara Chocolates Milk Chocolate with Mint Cookie in Pennsylvania while I was attending the PMCA Production Conference a few weeks ago. Niagara Chocolate is part of the Sweet Works family of brands, which includes Ovation chocolate sticks, Florida Tropics Chocolates and Sixlets.

The bars is part of their line of fundraiser chocolate, bars that are purchased wholesale by organizations to resell for a tidy profit to fund activities. While I always thought that fundraiser candy was overpriced, I actually thought this was a pretty good deal. These 2.25 ounce bars still sell for $1.00.

Niagara Milk Chocolate with Mint Cookie

The milk chocolate bar is quite simple, and a favorite bar flavor for me. It’s a minted milk chocolate with lots of little chocolate cookie chips (a la Oreos) inside. The bar is well segmented for breaking into bite sized pieces. At 2.25 ounces, it’s about two portions as far as I’m concerned, though the package says it’s only one.

There were plenty of little cookie bits, but even better, they were especially crunchy without being hard. The smoky and less sweet contrast of the cookie to the very sweet milk chocolate was perfect. The milk chocolate is decent, not extraordinary, but good enough for this price point. It’s so hard to find this particular candy combination these days since Hershey’s discontinued their seasonal version and I’ve had bad luck with freshness with the Harry London Cookie Joys of late.

If you see a kid selling these, it’s a nice little treat and usually for a good cause. Niagara also makes about a half a dozen other varieties of bars (I have the peanut butter one to try as well.)

There’s no notification of the ethical sourcing of the chocolate on the package. The bars contain dairy, soy, eggs, and wheat and may contain traces of peanuts and tree nuts.

  1. Holy Flashbacks, Batman! I don’t even want to think about how many Niagara candy bars (and other Niagara candy products) I sold as a kid/teenager, growing up in the Buffalo area…

    I always liked the peanut butter bar. The crisped rice bar was a favorite, too. Once upon a time, they made one with bits of sponge candy.

    I’m flying to Buffalo next week and there’s usually a fundraising box of them in the airport shop. I may have to stop in…
