Melt in your mouth mints

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am in search for some of these mints that melt in your mouth. I know they have the regular peppermint ones that melt in your mouth. The ones I'm talking about are a little different. I remember them being round in shape. These are super light & airy and start melting the instant they hit your tongue. I remember them in peppermint, spearmint, & butter. The spearmint ones were pale green with dark green stripes on them and the butter ones were pale yellow with dark yellow stripes on them. Does anyone remember these....and do they still make them?

i found some like that at drug emporium. can't remember the name, either.
you could probably make something very like them, tho - just add mint flavoring to these: forgotten cookies

Didn't Fanny May candies make something like that? I wanna say they were called Melt-a-ways.

I think I know what you're talking about. They're in light pastel colors, right? I know Walmart has them in their candy aisle in a big bag. Well, at least my old hometown Walmart does.

Edit: Is it these?

Ahhhh, I LOVE those things!

If it's the pastel party mints you're talking about, we have a huge carton of them in our pantry.

I remember those. They were popular in little candy dishes by cash registers in restaurants and hotels. That is until someone figured out how germy they got from dozens of hands picking at them.

I haven't seen them in years.

At the risk of hijacking your thread.... anyone remember "icy cups"? I love those. But I can't find them anywhere

are you talking about the pastel mints [pillow-shaped, you see them at weddings] or the spherical ones that SophieC is looking for?

The little square pillow shaped ones. Isn't that what she's looking for?

no, she's looking for some that are spherical, & they're kinda foamy inside, like crispy meringues. i've had them, too, altho i prefer crunching them up rather than letting them melt.
seems like we sold some as 'band candy' once, lo, these many years ago. i also bought some not too long ago @ Drug Emporium... but neither of us can remember what they're called!

Icy Cups? Not sure I've ever heard of that. Can you describe them?

Yes, Laureen, the ones I am looking for are round. They are hard, but super light & airy. My mom said she remembered buying them once from someone for a school fundraiser, so it makes sense that you remember them being sold as band candy. I'm going to have to check Drug Emporium. So far, this is about the closest I can find to them, but I definitely remember them being perfectly round.
