Well, mother’s specialty is mints. I know, it sounds a little corny and old fashioned, like a 1950’s wedding redo. Yes, they do sort of resemble those…but, I have to tell you, these mints are awesome. They have become such a hit with friends and acquaintances; people request them time and again to chronicle the most special events of their lives.
Well, I can assure you, these are no ordinary mints.
When I opened my first shop, my mom made me adorable chocolate leaf and pumpkin mints to go with our autumn theme. I think a 4 year old came with her mom to our open house and polished off about 100 while her mom shopped.
When my friend, Mary, found out she was pregnant at 43, baby feet mints got many oohs and ahs from the ladies attending. For Mary, who was not expecting an addition after having three daughters over 10 years earlier, I like to think it brought a special sweetness to her shower.
Then there were my husband’s 50th birthday party mints. Granny got a little naughty and used a mold shaped like two female body parts. The men especially enjoyed nibbling on those. One guest stuck a bunch in his pocket like a to go order.
Not sure what was up with that!
All I know is, thank you mom, for adding something very special to some of the most important moments in people’s lives. No one else will be able to duplicate the care and love you put into each an every mint.
Granny’s mints, you gotta love ‘em.
