C Howard’s violet mints – a horse of a different color

Have you ever tried these? Do remember seeing these at the drug store, or in your grandmother’s handbag, yes they called them handbags, and what were you doing poking around in there, anyway?

The packaging is delightfully nostalgic. The label looks like it is called Choward’s, but it’s really C. Howard’s. A U.S., family-owned, candy company that has operated since the 1930’s.

The shape and texture is like a square Pez. The taste..uh, the taste…it’s a floral flavor, if there is such a thing. It’s a little too perfume-y for me. But, apparently these are a favorite because they have been around for 80 plus years.

Let me know what you think of these. Next I’ll try the lemon version.
