Choward's Violet Mints have a floral flavor and fragrance,which makes for a very unique candy experience. This candy is native to New York and was first made back in the 1930's.
An unmistakeable scent of flowers is apparent even before you unwrap the candy. A long lasting candy that can take from 1 to 5 mintues to dissolve in yout mouth. Because of this strong flowery scent, children used to refer to it as "soap candy".
