Soft peppermint candy isn't as ubiquitous as the crunchy kind. Everybody has had candy canes and Starlights, but if you haven't experienced the creamy mint flavor of taffy-like peppermint chews, you're in for a treat. There are also soft peppermint sticks and peppermint bon-bons that melt in your mouth.

Find Soft Peppermint Candy Online

Soft peppermint candy isn't as widely distributed as hard peppermint. However, if you do your shopping online, you'll find several sites that offer these tasty treats. Since online merchants don't have the same high overhead costs as brick-and-mortar stores, you may be surprised to discover how reasonable their prices are.

Online merchants fill orders as they come in rather than having products sitting on the shelves. That means the candy you order online is likely to be fresher. And don't think you have to buy 50 cartons at a time. Most bulk candy sites have no minimum, and even some wholesale sites sell in two to five pound packages.

Peppermint candy is wholesome candy. For centuries, plants in the mint family have been used to settle sour stomachs and aid in digestion. Peppermint freshens your breath, and peppermint oil is used as a stimulant to refresh your mind. Furthermore, unlike chocolate, peppermint candy is fat and cholesterol free and can easily be made sugar-free without loss of quality. That makes it an excellent choice for diabetics, people who are on low-carb diets, kids with vulnerable teeth, and anyone who wants to limit his or her intake of sugar.
