I have been looking for these for years. I remember my grandmother buying them when I was a child. I immediately opened my order and they are exactly the same. Love them!!
I ordered 4 boxes of this on 11/22/16, as Christmas gifts. I have had these several times and they were SUPERIOR! NOT this time! They were sticky, all stuck together. I emailed and was told (defensively!) that they are only good for 2 weeks, so would not have been good utnil Christmas, and also that I was supposed to open the box so they could "air". None of these things were relayed to me, either at time of order or in the shipping box. I have received these for Christmas and enjoyed them at Valentine's Day, so know this was just a bad batch. Their response was curt and defensive when I was only trying to alert them to an issue. Not very professional or business-like. Very disappointed, as previous orders were irresistably delicious.
I was so happy to find these for my Mom, who remembered enjoying them when she was a child. They are outstanding and highly recommended. Will buy again.
A couple of years ago I searched and searched for these candies my husband remembered from his childhood. I had no idea if these were them, but they were and he was thrilled. I have been buying him some for every Christmas. I didn't last year and he was bummed. So putting in my order today. Thank you that you keep making them--you make my husband very happy and sometimes he'll even share one with me. :)
My box arrived in beautiful condition. ( no small feat considering how the USPS handles packages) Oliver's does a remarkable job of protecting these delicacies. My only wish is that Orange would be included in the regular box along with the other 4 flavors. Worth every penny to taste them again. Thank you Oliver's!
I used to eat these when I was a kid growing up. We bought them in a supermarket in Jersey City NJ called Great Eastern. I've looked for years but could not remember the name. Thanks for the great memories.
We have often talked about these mints over the past 30 some years. Growing up when we would take a car trip my mom would buy these, if my sister and I were good she would let us pick out whatever color we wanted. My mom is now 77 and starting chemo and radiation tomorrow. On a whim I thought I would try and see if anyone made these anymore. To my delight I found Oliver's, it truly brought tears to my eyes. I ordered 2 boxes and cannot wait to get them to give them to my mom. She has a long round ahead of her and I know these will make her smile. Thank You so much for continuing a long time favorite candy.
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.
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.
Pastel Mints 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!
