I have little to no experience with mint flavors. It was never really an ingredient that interested me. I picked up a 15ml of this because “why not” pretty much. I am pleasantly surprised that I have been enjoying this immensely.
Valentine quite simply tastes very close to mint chocolate chip ice cream. Nicely minty throughout with a mild cooling sensation. The chocolate is representative of the dark chocolate chips in mint chocolate chip ice cream. It doesn’t really have the bitterness of the real thing but the flavor is definitely that of a dark chocolate. Nice creaminess throughout and the cooling of the mint accentuates the ice cream feel.
The description mentions other similar flavors having a flavor drop off where some of the elements are lost. I can’t speak to that but I can say Valentine is consistently mint chocolate chip through and though with no drop off. It’s definitely good and I am rather surprised how much I enjoy this. I need to start eyeing more mint flavors I guess.
