Looking for fondant mints

I am looking for fondant mints (like you might serve at a wedding) -- not the flower- and bell-shaped ones made in molds, but flattish round ones, about the size of a half-dollar, with one side smooth and one side ridged. The ones I remember from my childhood came in white, green, pink and yellow, flavored peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen and lemon, respectively. Does anyone know if Economy Candy or anyplace else in Manhattan sells these? (I live in Denver and can't find them here -- but I'll be in NYC in June.) Thanks for any suggestions!

Edited to add: they look kind of like these :
except that these are smaller, covered in a hard coating to be more durable, and all the same flavor,according to this blog:

    1. I also looked for years for those exact fondant mints because I loved them as a child. Almost any store that had a candy counter had them. I mentioned it to a cousin I was visiting in New Hampshire one day and she said Haven's Candies in Portland, Maine, makes them. I was also visiting in Portland that year so I went to Haven's to see. And they do! During cold weather they make the mints but they don't keep well in the warmer months. They have rosebud mints in several flavors in the warmer months. They will ship. The mints don't appear on the website so you have to call to order them. They make wonderful candy.
