Pink Wintergreen Lozenges deserve a place in the candy Hall of Fame as they are one of the oldest candies available!
Much like White Peppermints, these tasty pink lozenges first appeared in Canada during the late 1880’s, but didn't arrive in the United States until the Early 1900's, hence their nickname "Canada Mints."
They were originally sold in bulk and it wasn't until 1916 that they were offered as a $.05 count good which gave them pride of place on any well-appointed candy counter.
There are approximately 130 Pink Wintergreen Lozenges per pound.

Like several other comments I read in Candy Favorites, The pink Lozenges are a beautiful reminder of Grandma's candy dish which all the grandchildren still talk about so THIS grandma has to have them in her dish as well. So very happy these "grandma mints" are still available.
- Love them

My grandmother always had these in her candy dish (her sweet tooth was as bad as mine), so when I saw them on Candy Favorites, I was thrilled. I split the large bag and put the mints in my Mother's Christmas stocking and my 52 year old brother's. Mom's reaction was priceless, and unbeknownst to me, my brother remembered them and was thrilled also. Thank you so much for carrying these. They helped to make that last Christmas with Mom such a joy. After all, it's the little things that we remember most sometimes.

I remember as a child knowing that my grandmother always had these delicious sweet candies in a dish on her dresser, and that we children could treat ourselves occasionally from that dish if we were good. I am now a 74 year old grandmother myself, and have continued this tradition with my children and grandchildren through all of these years. They are special to all of us! We love the clean sweet taste and the sweet memories too. I am concerned that it is becoming difficult to find them in the stores of late and worried that they are being neglected due to the influx of so many new candies. They cannot be replaced in our estimation.
