Here it is, the candy you've been waiting for. From crystal-to-creamy melt-in-your-mouth texture in sweet and refreshing flavors. Ridges on one side, smooth on the other. Christmas flavors are: Cinnamon, Spearmint and Peppermint.
Also, get them half dipped in Oliver's award winning dark chocolate!
This are perfect! My local Midwest candy store, Regina's, gave up making these a few years ago. They called them Reception wafers. I had been getting them for decades and was heartbroken. Every time I had a party, there was a sad little empty tray where they should have been. So, these are exactly the same, right down to the little ridges on the bottom, and that signature firm, yet creamy, melt in your mouth texture. I ordered all the available flavors, except orange which is seasonal, and they are just excellent, spot on. Sigh, they would be even more perfect, and I would allow me to die happy, is if maple became available. Hint, hint.
My mom always used to buy Pastel Mints at the candy counter of Rich's department store in Atlanta as a special treat for us when I was growing up, and I always particularly loved the Christmas ones. After the candy counters disappeared, I hadn't seen or heard of Pastel Mints in years; imagine my surprise when, after recently reminiscing with my husband about "these wonderful mints mom used to buy" I luckily stumbled on this website by accident. I instantly remembered these, and ordered three boxes - one for me and one for each of my sisters. They're not *exactly* as I remembered (my memory paints the originals as larger in circumference and a bit more delicate), but they're very very close, and certainly delicious and melt-in-your-mouth! I now have this site bookmarked so I can order them every Christmas, and also so I can take advantage of the non-holiday assortment as well. (I remember sneaking my favorites, the wintergreen ones, when mom's back was turned!)
