Whatever happened to... Buttermints?
Hi, my grandmother used to give us sweets called buttermints, but not the crunchy ones you show on your site. These were soft and a bit chalky and melted in your mouth. They were similar to the tiny pastel-coloured mints you sometimes get when leaving a restaurant, but larger and oval shaped and creamy yellow in colour. The name was appropriate - they were made with almost pure butter, sugar and mild mint flavour and they tasted of butter and mint. They were advertised as being fat free but I don\'t see how that can be true. I can\'t remember who made them and haven\'t been able to find them anywhere - any thoughts? Thank you!
