Anyone know of Violet Mints?

I am looking for Choward's Violet Mints, anyone ever had them? If so, where do you buy them?
Thanks, MJP

    I have seen them at some of our local (Seattle) drugstores, but a quick google turned up many sources.

    Here is one place to order them: http://www.amazon.com/C-Howards-Violet-Mints-15/dp/B000CQ1S4E/sr=8-1/qid=1171500079/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/105-6448848-8659633?ie=UTF8&s=hpc

    Vermont Country Store carries the Violet wafers and gum.

    Believe it or not, I have some in the house right now. Picked them up, if memory serves, in Albertson's supermarket in Alexandria, LA.

    I've ordered other items from both Amazon and VT Country Store and never been disappointed; but the Howard's violet mints just seem to pop up at random every now and then. My first exposure to them was in a hole-in-the-wall (and utterly delightful!) restaurant on or near Calle Ocho in Miami. I bought a few packs and have kept an eye peeled for them ever since.

    VM always reminds me of cloth handkerchiefs and grandmothers' purses.

    Thanks for all your input. I got an email from someone stating that the company sells online. I ordered a box of violet from them since it was the cheapest price I could find. If anyone is interested, the site is http://www.chowardcompany.com. Just have to click on the online store button. Thanks again,
    MJP

    Hello,
    I would like to know where I could get some Violet Mints. I used to always have them in my purse in the 70's. I liked to have them to keep my breath fresh when I was out on a date.

    Right now I have some Chowards's scented gum. It's good, but not as good as the mints.

    bye bye
