1 pound box (also see half-dipped Ameri-Mints)
I was hoping that these were the same mints that used to be in my great-grandmother's house when we would visit over 40 years ago. They are a memory from both my childhood and my mother's. I ordered two boxes of these one for myself and one for my mother. We were not disappointed. The candies are exactly like I remember. Thank you!
Best candies EVER!!!They are really soft and melt in your mouth.Wish they cost a little less but still worth it.Haven't had them in years but there just like I remembered them.
These mints were just like I remembered them from my childhood.They were great!When I told my husband how excited I was to find these he told me that it is going to be the memory that is great not the candy. However when they came he ate most of the box and agreed they were great!
I have searched for these mints for years, I knew them as Pastel Mints and never thought that I would find them again. I ordered two boxes and they are exactly as I remember them from years ago in Massachusetts. THANK YOU Oliver's for bringing back these wonderful mints!! Getting ready to order two more boxes!!
And I bought them myself when I saw them listed in the Vermont catalog. I had such high hopes that they were the same candy I used to tremendously enjoy in my teens. And on Christmas Eve they arrived and I was a teenager again!!! Thank-you so much for making my Christmas so happy - And I even shared a few with my grandchildren too!
I recently picked up a catalog from VCS and was so excited to find the pastel mints! So I went onto their website to order some ($24.95!!) but couldn't actually put the items in my "basket" to purchase. I talked with someone at work and he told me that the store was only an hour away. This afternoon I took a ride to the store only to find out that they #1 didn't have any in the store and #2 they were no longer carrying them!! I came home and "googled" Pastel Mints and found this site and just placed my order for 3 boxes :))) I'm afraid I won't be able to find them again and don't want to run out for a while. I'm praying they are the same mints I LOVED when I was a kid. They carried them at our local grocery and came in a long box with the 5 flavors/colors (orange, pink, yellow, white and green). I can't wait to get them in the mail!!!
The pastel mints are as good as I remember them to be. I've searched candy shops and online stores but could only find them here and at Vermont Country Store. The price is also excellent. Love these candies.
I knew them as Pastel Mints, slender box about .89 cents I use to pay for them. I can't tell you how many boxes I purchased in the 70's. What a joy to taste them again. Found them in the Vermont Store. I almost flipped when i saw the Whip & Chill. Because of the cost it will be a treat to purchase on occasion.
I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find these mints. As a teenager in the 70s, there was a candy store across the street from a friend's house in Sea Side Heights, NJ. Wherever I would go to visit her, I would always stop in the store and buy a pound of these mints. I have not had them since, but these mints are exactly the same and really take me back. Thank you so much for these wonderful mints.
Just as I remember them. Nothing like it anywhere!
As a child, you could buy pastel mints almost anywhere but then they disappeared. How excellent to find them again, just as delicious!
I thought I had lost these mints forever when the old time candy store in my town closed. These mints remind me of the trips down town with my sister when we had only quarters to spend. These mints were my favorite. I can't think Olivers enough for these wonderful mints. They are truly fantastic.
I have been waiting 30 years to find these pastel mint candies in a long thin box that my grandmother used to dole out to my brothers and I when we visited her as a child in the 60's. I have been looking for these...and the flavor is amazing! It was worth the wait...unbelieveably minty and refresing!
I can't believe no one has written a review on these Pastel Mints yet! Those of us from Pittsburgh remember these being sold by Bolan's candies on Grant Street. Bolan's is still around in a sort of "retired statesman" form, in that they make these mints in very limited quantity for a candy store in Pittsburgh of another name. I don't know if there is a conection between Bolans and Olivers, or whether or not the recipe for the mints are the same, but they certainly taste identical to me and are as wonderful as the memories of theese from Bolan's heyday, when I was a child, and my mom would always buy these for our family's trip to Lake Erie in the summer. They are obvioiusly based on a fondant recipe and, I would guess, use pure oil flavorings. They are a true treasure and I am very happy and thankful that Oliver's is keeping them alive for future generations (and me too in my old age!) Yes, they are delicate and will not tolerate the heat and humidity well. But then, they won't last long enough to be effected - the box will dissappear quickly - order two or more at the same time!
