When your sweet tooth demands both the rich taste of dark chocolate and the cool, fresh flavor of peppermint, there's no need to choose: reach for Junior Mints, America's favorite chocolate covered creamy mint since its introduction in 1949.


Named after a popular Broadway show of the time, Junior Miss, the pure chocolate-covered candy has been both a movie theater and at-home entertainment favorite. It even played an integral role in a classic Seinfeld episode storyline (a Junior Mint was dropped into the abdominal cavity of a surgery patient who later miraculously recovered).


Since joining the Tootsie family in 1993, Junior Mints has continued to thrive as an American candy favorite. Today, Tootsie produces more than 15 million Junior Mints a day, all from its original Cambridge, Massachusetts plant.
