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." 

Originally sold in bulk,  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.

So happy these are still available.
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.

Q: When will these be available to order again?
Candy Expert
A: Good question. Wintergreen Lozenges, one of the oldest candies, was manufactured by NECCO who went out of business in 2019. We are not sure if these will return to the market, but we will let you know when and if they do.

Q: Will they restock? Thank you!
Candy Expert
A: A good question! These were made by Necco for close to a 100 years and their fate is in flux depending on if the new manufacturer continues to produce them.... Stay tuned!

Q: You did not answer the question if they were soft or hard candy if you could reply back thank you
Candy Expert
A: They are a hard candy but with a "melt in your mouth" consistency. Canada Mints are one of the oldest candies still available and are what Admiral Byrd took on his Antartica Expedition....

Q: Are the pink wintergreen mints soft?

A: They are one of the oldest candies still available and while delicious and hard to find, they are a harder candy that quickly melt in your mouth.
