Looking for fondant mints

khoffdenver | | Mar 30, 2010 07:13 PM

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:
