Now that the holiday season is here, you’re probably seeing all kinds of amazing candy creations on the shelves. Some are a little out there on the favor spectrum, like pizza-flavored candy canes. Or, maybe you prefer something a little more classic with your candy, like a Reese’s Advent Calendar.
But what says traditional holiday flavor more than the combination of chocolate and peppermint? If your taste buds are craving that irresistible blend, then Andes has the perfect holiday treat for you in the shape of a Christmas tree!
Andes Creme de Menthe Christmas Tree Candy Bars have all the flavor of your favorite little Andes mints packed into the perfect pine tree shape! And we all know bigger is better when it comes to our candy choices.
Each Andes Creme de Menthe Christmas tree has two distinct layers. The first is a rich chocolate foundation. Then, a delightful light green mint layer is poured on top to give the tree its detailed decoration. Together, they make the perfect holiday bite (or two, depending on how you gobble it up.)

Of course, these tiny and tasty trees make great stocking stuffers, but they are also a fabulous candy option for people with food sensitivity. If you have someone on your shopping list who has peanut allergies or gluten intolerance, then you should pick up a bunch of these Andes Creme de Menthe candies. They are designated peanut-free and gluten-free, so they are a no-stress sweet snack option for the holidays. Andes trees are also kosher certified!
These may be hard to find at the moment, though. If you’re looking to buy them in bulk, then keep an eye out online at Amazon. As of publication, they are sold out of the 24-pack boxes but could restock soon. They’re also sold out at All City Candy. The 24-pack was out of stock at online candy seller Tootsie Roll but seems to be available again now, though it could be temporary.
And, in a pinch, you can always get Andes’ delicious chocolate-and-mint combo in holiday-themed candy pieces on Amazon, currently selling for $25.43 for three 9.5-ounce packs.
And remember — have a minty, merry Christmas!
