I had thought that I had made a great candy coup when I found these Canada Mints back in the 70s. I had thought they were super-rare, a really odd find. I live in California, where they had apparently never caught on. After I posted these online, I learned from several visitors that they are actually a very common candy in other parts of the country that goes way back when. I hear that they were often given away at the cash register at restaurants, making them about as mundane as a candy can be. Oh, well! For what it's worth, some people think an Abba-Zabba bar is a super-rare find, while to Californians, they're as ordinary as a Snickers bar. Vive la difference!
