Junior Mints history

The name of the play stuck with Mr. Welch. Several years later it influenced the name of his new miniature, chocolate-covered mint patties which he called Junior Mints. The year was 1949.

Junior Mints memories
 
As a child growing up in a small town in the 60's & 70's and a product of a single parent family, my brother & I thought it was a real treat to go to the Wilma Theater. Even though we were only able to go maybe 1-2 times a year my favorite candy to have at the movies then & even now is still Junior Mints.
 
The town has grown & changed with the times & unfortunately the Wilma is long gone, but I still have the memories & now when I take my daughter to the movies she never forgets to ask "Mom did you get your Junior Mints?" ~ Brenda from Idaho
