Yesterday’s Medicine – Wintergreen Flavor
A classic sanded hard candy with the cool wintergreen flavor. Made in small batches for us in a small confectionery that opened in the 1800s, when wintergreen was still a medicine and people used sugar for health, well-being, and flavor. Later, these candies became grandmothers’ favorites, in all shapes, sizes and flavors. The wintergreen plant is native to North America – you may know its berries by another name: teaberry. Approximately 12 ounces in a jar with a screw-on lid for freshness. Store in a cupboard away from heat and sun to avoid stickiness.
