Does anyone remember these?

Okay when I was younger, I used to always buy these mint type candies at Christmas time. They came in a thin rectangular box, sectioned in 3.

They were these round, flat and thin melting mint type candies, that melted in your mouth, they came in pastel colours; green, pink and yellow.

We just discussed them at work, and no one can remember what they are called, or if they still make them! If they do, I might have to make a trip out at lunch hour!

Hopefully someone remembers these!

I remember which candies you mean, but for the life of me can't remember what they are called... if I ever knew the name. I have never personally bought them but my gparents always had some in their candy dish.

Personally I was never a huge fan. I much prefer classic Werther's caramels and After Eights!

Is what you are thinking of?

These come in a pack of 4 though- but I think they used to come in three?
Also- these ones don't have a mint flavour but they might or might have, the packaging may have changed since a while back.

Also- maybe they were Junior Mints that came out in special colours? Those would be widely available.

Not yet.. on Dec 09, 2011 @ 03:46 pm

Thanks ladies! None of these are the ones I'm looking for yet! I have no idea why I cant remember the names of these things!

They were round and almost flat.. I'm going to keep searching for them, and will definately post if I think of them!

Maybe I've got them confused though, because it has been years since I've had them!

Can't remember the name on Dec 09, 2011 @ 04:27 pm

I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about, but I can't remember what they're called. My aunt always got them for Christmas from her kids and she hated them,lol. I've never eaten them but if I see my aunt I will surely ask and let you know if you haven't figured it out by then :)
