Classic, iconic, and oh so delicious, Junior Mints are mint chocolate candies with a theatrical history that stretches for decades. Introduced in 1949 by the James O. Welch Company, these soon to be famous confections got their name from Welch’s favorite Broadway show and quickly became the most sought-after movie theater candy. Fast forward to 1993, these creamy mints gained even more fame in the iconic Seinfeld Junior Mint episode, when operating room antics between Kramer and Jerry resulted in a mint jettisoning out of Kramer’s hands and right into a patient. This scene is one that will forever live in the minds of sitcom fans and rejuvenated the brand’s appeal to a whole new generation.
The popularity of this refreshing candy continues to grow, as it is one of the favored snacks in theaters to this day. Available in Peppermint Crunch, which is a chocolate covered mint delight with bits of real crunchy peppermint, as well as other festive varieties for Christmas, Easter, and Valentine’s Day, these treats are a guaranteed hit at any gathering. After all, as Kramer so eloquently said, “who’s gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It's chocolate- it's peppermint- it's delicious!” Whether you need mints in bulk for a large party, or just want to give a Seinfeld fan a gift that speaks for itself, Candy Warehouse has what you need!
