Here's what you get: chocolate covered peppermint Joe Joe's, chocolate covered peanut butter Joe Joe's, chocolate covered chocolate Joe Joe's, and white chocolate covered ginger Joe Joe's. I was most excited by the ginger Joe Joe's--so different. So Christmasy, but alas they were a tad too sweet for me. A friend did liken them to the ginger Newman's O's, which I hear are quite good, so if you don't mind white chocolate these are worth a try. I was also expecting to love the peanut butter Joe Joe's, but they weren't peanutty enough for me. Lawman loved the chocolate covered Joe Joe's, while my hands down favorites were the peppermint ones. It's a fun box and a good assortment for company, but for me in this case the astounding marketing overplayed the product. I think my expectations were that these cookies would be utterly mind blowing instead of just pretty good. Sigh.
