Rated 5 out of 5Â by Linda in Texas Mints that melt in your mouth
I remember having these mints at holiday dinners. So good. Very fragile but packed and surrounded by foam so they arrived safely.

My Grandmother used to donate to the college my mother attended in Vermont. In exchange, the college sent my Grandmother a box of these candies each year. She would *sparingly* share a candy <or 2 if we were REALLY good!> with my sister and I. When the family stayed at our cabin in Vermont, we always went to the store and bought candies and cheese. Nanny has passed, and it's been about 15 years since I've seen or had these candies.
I came on to order Maple Candies, but found them, so I instantly ordered 2 boxes. Even with reviews saying they aren't what they used to be!
I got my package and immediately opened a box. They don't taste *exactly* like the one's my Grandmother got, but honestly it's so close I didn't even blink an eye.
I remember the candy Nanny got had more of a granular sugary feel/taste...don't know if I could describe this better! In my honest opinion, they do taste just like the one's I had when I was younger. The creamy inside is delicious and I've always loved the "crunchy" outside.
Bottom line, these candies bring me back to my childhood and one of the many great things I remember about my grandmother.
I will absolutely order more, and can't wait to get some for my sister and mother!! And obviously for myself!!!
THANK YOU for continuing to make Merrimints!

I used to eat these mints when visiting my Grandparents for they also had a sweet tooth! They are exactly as I remember when I was a young girl of about 7 or 8 years old. This is one of the first things I looked for when arriving and greeting my Grandparents. My Grandfather almost always had a box by HIS chair and I think he loved us to come to him for our treat. What memories!!!

I've been a customer of yours for a long time and will continue to be so. Love the items you sell. I've purchased the Merrimints from you several times as they bring back fond memories of holidays with my grandparents. Unfortunately, this time they were stale and stuck together. I probably will not buy them again as they are rather expensive for candy, especially since they were stale.

BACK IN THE '40S, WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, MY MOTHER FOUND THESE DELICIOUS MERRIMINTS. SHE BOUGHT THEM ONLY AS AN OCCASIONAL TREAT AS MONEY WAS SHORT IN THOSE DAYS. WHEN THE DAY CAME THAT I MARRIED AND HAD MY FAMILY I CONTINUED THE SAME PRACTICE. I WAS SO GLAD THEY WERE STILL SOLD AS I ALWAYS LOVED THE CREAMY TEXTURE AND THE WONDERFUL MINT FLAVOR. THE EXPERIENCE WAS PASSED ON TO MY CHILDREN, BUT AS THE YEARS WENT ON WE COULD NO LONGER FIND THEM IN THE STORES. I WAS DELIGHTED WHEN I SPOTTED THE AD IN THE VERMONT COUNTRY MAGAZINE. I'VE ALREADY ORDERED SEVERAL BOXES, AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO. BE SURE TO TRY THEM. YOU'LL LOVE THEM.

My parents had these mints set out when we had guests. I loved them then and love them still. I must say that I had more than my share of them this time. Yum

Rated 2 out of 5Â by kallen626 Holiday Mints are the favorite!
I've been looking for melty mints for years and got a box for an unexpected Christmas gift this year. These were incredible! Peppermint, wintergreen, cinnamon, spearmint. Sadly, this flavor combo wasn't available after the holiday and I spent the ridiculous amount of 34.00 for a box that had lemon, peppermint, weak wintergreen flavor. I only liked the peppermint, missed those other explosive mint flavors. The wintergreen were all stuck to each other as well, broke apart as I tried to pull them apart.

The Mints are good but the green ones are too minty for my taste.
