    • Gwen, they are little round thick candy that taste like mint, but not a strong mint taste. I have bought them at Walmart, drug stores. They may be in the wedding section but not sure. I get mine at a candy store in PA when we go north to visit family. I think I see them most in drug stores in the bagged candy section. I think the name of the cake makes people think it’s a pink mouth lozenger, but it’s not…it’s mint candy. This recipe is very old and the name is the original name for this cake. I started to call it Pink Mint Cake…but decided to keep the original name. I baked this for breast cancer awareness at the hospital to be sold by the slice, but they decided to auction the cake off. I think they got 75.00 for the cake. I wish the comment section had a place you can post a photo…I’d show you what the cake looked like and the mints. I have some mints now I could take a picture of for you to see.

  1. If they’re what I think they are, the mints are about 1/4″ thick, 1″ diameter, and the ones I find have 4 X’s in a line across the top. I find them periodically in grocery stores, but not all carry them. Yes, with the bagged candy. I know them as lozenges (no “r”). They make (at least made) white ones, as well, but they’re peppermint instead of wintergreen.

    My grandfather loved them, and so do I. I wish he was still alive–I’d love to make this cake for him.
