Mint Sandwich Cookie Match-Up: Will Trader Joe's Joe-Joe Lead the Pack or Not?

Pepperidge Farm Candy Cane Milano Minis
Plain: To paraphrase an old commercial, where's the mint? The buttery cookies dominate. Any peppermint is but a fleeting suggestion.
In Milk: I don't know how, but the Milanos drop to zero flavor in milk. Maybe they're better in coffee.

Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's
Plain: I could swear Joe cut back on the peppermint this year. I'm sure they're the same as ever, but I remember the mint having more pop. The filling is pleasantly soft, with candy bits providing a little sparkle.
In Milk: Finally, I found the peppermint! A quick soak amplified both the chocolate and peppermint, with both in perfect harmony. Hands down, this is the winner of the showdown. Was there ever any doubt?
