5 Stars They're found!
by a member from Iowa City IA on Jan 6, 2014
  Brandeis department stores in Omaha sold these, and I would spend my babysitting money on them in the 70s. They were made by the Omaha Candy Company. Brandeis closed, and then one could special order them from Miller & Paine in Lincoln. They closed. Then the candy company closed. I've been searching for these for 30 years. So happy my sister found them for me! Just missing the pastel blue, then my nostalgia would be complete.

5 Stars See's Candies Stopped making these in 1972
by Laurie Bentley from Gardena, CA on Nov 11, 2013
  These just great. I was thrilled to find them again a couple of years ago. I can't thank Oliver's Candies enough for offering them.

5 Stars So happy to find these!
by Suzanne Hanlon from Michigan on Dec 13, 2012
  Merriments were an all time favorite of mine and I was so disappointed when the candy store stopped carrying them in the 80's. Thank you so much for making them again! I love the mint flavors and lemon but used to be especially fond of Lime. I wish you had them in lime, maybe having them in a larger box so we could get lime and orange as well as the others already available. Thank you for a great product, I will be ordering many more times!

5 Stars Wonderful
by Audrey Mucci from CT on Feb 27, 2012
  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!

5 Stars Can't Believe That I Found Them!!
by Nancy Lucas from Enterprise, AL on Jan 13, 2011
  I have searched for these mints for years, I knew them as Merriments 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!!

by a member from OAK LAWN IL on Jan 13, 2011
  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!

5 Stars The Best Christmas Gift I got!
by a member from Chicago Area, Illinois, USA on Jan 6, 2011
  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!

5 Stars WOW!! I found them!!!
by a member from Northfield, MA on Dec 19, 2010
  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" merrimints 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!!!

5 Stars Excellent
by Gloria from NY on Nov 9, 2010
  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.
