    Bassett's chocolate is not too sweet, so I'd recommend anything chocolate (I loved the chocolate marshmallow). Also, I'm a sucker for green tea and theirs is SPOT ON.

    Everything tastes very fresh. The hardest part is deciding what flavors to choose. My ❤ the Mint Chocolate Chip and Chocolate. Can't wait to have another chance to try more flavors!
