In 1919, in a small candy shop on the shores of Wildwood, New Jersey, Angel Mint® candy was created.
The master candy maker gave away free samples of his new creation to all the local townspeople. Time after time people would say “this candy tastes heavenly” or “this recipe had to be divinely inspired”, so the candy maker decided to name his creation, Angel Mints®. The Angel Mint® recipe called for the finest ingredients available. And to achieve the creamy, melt in your mouth texture, each small 30 pound batch was cooked in copper kettles over gas stoves with the goal of maximizing the moisture content. After which each individual Angel Mint® was immediately cut and wrapped in order to lock in the freshness!
The Florida Candy Factory is proud of the rich Angel Mint® history and we take great pride in maintaining the authenticity of the original master candy maker’s “possible” divinely inspired creation! We believe what makes our old fashioned Angel Mint® so special is that it truly is manufactured today in the same high quality manner as was intended by it’s creator on the New Jersey Boardwalk way back in 1919. Each hand made batch is cooked in small 30 pound increments over gas stoves and each receives the personal attention of one of our experienced “candy makers”. Further proof of our dedication to tradition, we even cut and wrap the Angel Mint® in cellophane using “original” refurbished K-H cut & wrap machines that date back to the 1919 era. Most importantly, our ingredients remain unchanged from the original recipe. Our ingredients are Pure & Natural, Fat Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free and Salt Free!
Whether you are looking for that refreshing “melt in you mouth” after dinner mint or a delicious “anytime snack” please treat yourself to an Angel Mint®.
The original Angel Mint® candy is manufactured and distributed by one of Clearwater, Florida’s past Small Business of the Year Awardees – the Florida Candy Factory, Inc.
