A Bit of History
These wintergreen patties were one of many chocolate covered nuts, seeds, and creams that started in the turn-of-century with the much celebrated truffle. The peppermint has endured and is popular today, although the milder and more distinct wintergreen is hard to find. These candies are made by the nation’s first candy company which opened in 1806 in Salem, Massachusetts.
