Old Denver Dry Goods Cream Mints

I would kill to get my hands on those again. They were sold at the candy counter just left of the bank of elevators on the main floor. They came in white, green, yellow, and pink, and were SO creamy, they just melted in your mouth! And NOT sugery at all.

Can one buy those same mints today... and if so WHERE? You'd have my eternal thanks if you could help. (Obviously, it is going to take someone really old to help with this question... no offense intended... as I am obviously old too <s>)

  1. I think what you are looking for are buttermints; not too sweet but very creamy and melt into butter in your mouth. You can do a google search for "buttermints" and find them; in pastel colors like the Denver dry goods store had.

    1. Take a look at these -
      I think that's what they were - disc shaped and soft on the inside- I believe that buttermints are more of a chalky consistency - they do melt, tho.

        Thanks to you both, but I have found those before and they have a sugery , grainy first taste... the ones at The Denver Dry were smooth as silk from the first nibble. I just wish I knew who made them for The Denver!!

        BTW, since you both seem to remember, do you recall going to The Tea Room, on the top floor, for lunch? That was SUCH a treat from me in the 50's and 60's!!
