I got my "pastel mints" today from VCS. Except for the fact that they were left on my porch either on or near the door so when I opened it they fell and a few were broken, they were in pretty good shape. Not stuck together and Yummy! The white cardboard box say's Oliver's in a blue oval and are called "cream mints".
There are 4 colors green, white (not my favorite either Barbara) yellow and pink. With all this talk about these candies I don't know now if I remember orange ones or not! How strange.
Size, shape and color seem to be the same. Maybe just slightly and I do mean slightly in diameter are smaller but they taste the same to me, especially the pink ones, and they do have the ribs on the backside. I think there are about 72 to 80 candies in the box. I've eaten a few. But there seems to be about 18/20 of each of the 4 colors.
I'm satisfied and when/if I have a craving again I'd order them, but from Oliver's next time. My last order of french creams directly from Oliver's came in about 2 days! Much much quicker than from VCS.
But at this price it'll be a long while before I order any more. I doubt even Oliver's would be that much cheaper considering they raised the price of the french creams. They know the demand.
Well, I've enjoyed this quest with all of you. Since starting here I've located 3 of my favorites and just this week found the 4th, Raspberry's & Blackberries. A Haribo gummi from Germany. I found it locally at a reasonable price, instead of bulk fills at twice the price. My hubby travels internationally just not to Germany anymore.
Wish I had figured this one out last year!
Well, off to search for another, LOL but I'll check back periodically to see how ya all are doing and if I can help search with ya.
