Do you like Angel Mints?

When I was younger my Grandma Rose was in the hospital on a few occasions. We would go and visit her of course. I used to like to go to the gift shop and look around. That is where I learned about Angel Mints. They are kind of like the pastel mints that are sometimes called Dinner Mints or Dainty Mints, but they are huge.  They kind of melt in your mouth, and they are so good.  They were something I always looked for when I was in candy stores, or gift shops.  They became harder to find.  So, I turned to my trusty assistant Google, and found out where I can get some. I don’t know what is with me and liking things that are really hard to find.  I found out that their factory is in Clearwater Florida. We were actually planning a trip to the Clearwater area at the time. Fate? I think so! When we came down to Florida for Noah’s first trip we went to the Angel Factory. I just wanted to buy some Angel Mints. I wasn’t really interested in taking a tour or anything. I am not even sure they offered one.  I was so excited when I was able to buy massive amounts of Angel Mints to have whenever I wanted.  I bought a big box. Of course that was five years ago, so those Angel Mints are long since gone. I still look for them on occasion. I was able to find them at a candy store in Tarpon Springs. I was so excited after looking for a while. Of course I could always just go to the Angel Mint Factory again, since it’s fairly close to me now. 

Every time I pop an Angel Mint in my mouth, I think of my Grandma Rose. She always had mints for me when I visited.  They weren’t Angel Mints but they were just as good.  It’s little things like that which remind me of my g-ma.
