I remember a melt in your mouth peppermint candy. Red and white and soft - they would melt in your mouth. I believe they were made by Whitman's. Anyone remember these? What were they called? And can I still buy them anywhere?

I know that See's Candies in California still makes a peppermint pillow. You can order from them on line at:http://www.sees.com.

Were these the one that were like a small pattie, smooth on top and ridges on bottom?

Whitman's was bought by Russell Stover. Russell Stover sells a line of mints, and also makes "Weight Watchers by Whitman's" mints. See:

The sixty four dollar question is if one of the Russell Stover mints is the old Whitman's recipe.
