chocolate mint candy bar


I am an American who worked in Mississauga ten years ago. I frequently bought a chocolate mint candy bar from a convenience store near my worksplace. I am trying to remember the candy name. I think it had the word "Royal" in the name. Can anyone help?

  1. I might be really wrong about this but I think the chocolate bar you're talking about (green package?) may have been a mint royale, which was rebranded as the After Eight chocolate bar. At first when the change happened the bar tasted the same but I haven't had an After Eight bar in a few years now so I'm not sure if it's the same or not.

    Also: if you're looking for something similar I've found the Laura Secord french mint bar hits the spot... not sure if you can get those where you are.

      That was it! Thank you, Manybears. It is possible to order Canadian candy on the Internet.

        This is great, all you fellow chocolate mint lovers. I do miss the royal..I am currently eating the after eight bars_ its just not quite the same!

      2. Oh man, the Mint Royaleused to be my favourite chocolate bar when I was a teenager and I had forgotten all about it until you mentioned it. I may run a test to find out if the After Eight bar is its current incarnation.

          what about York Peppermint Pies or whatever they are called, those are tasty!

        2. Oh yeah... the Mint Royale. Those were a lot of awesome!

          1. I really like the Cadbury brand Pep patty but can't seem to find it anymore, Aero Peppermint and Junior Mints!

            1. I was addicted to the Laura Secord French Mint bar when I was young. It is a solid chocolate bar flavoured with mint as opposed to peppermint patty types which has white cream mint centre.
