I just received the mints from www.hebertcandies.com
called Pastel Mints....They are close but not quite the same: smaller, a little harder than I remember and too many flavors. They arrived packaged as if they were gold. I bought two boxes and they came in a 2 foot crate with ice packs.
But these are much closer that the sherbert mints from Vermont County Store. I also ordered those and they looked promising but they tasted like white chocolate.
These mints I just bouoght have ridges on the back but in a grid pattern and the mints are a little miss-shaped, not perfectly round like I remember them. The texture is close like dried frosting but not creamy enough in the middle.
I have hope for the new ones that are $20.00 are closer to what we are looking for. Pricey if they are not the right ones.
Can you believe we are all looking for this mint because it was a happy part of our youth or childhood. My Grandmother loved these mints and she would bring them out at @5 pm when they had cocktails and I had an RC cola.
Our memories are triggered by many things-- food being one of the most remembered experiences. All celebrations have food traditions.
Are we all dissappointed we can't bring back the memories along with the mints. Maybe we are searching for our youth. Ok enough of my rambling on....you would think I was a nutcase or something. No just a 47 year old little girl trying to bring back the memories of my Grandparents. And share these mints with my family! Silly isn't it.
Let me know if anyone tried the latest mints.
