    Question Certs

    Remember Certs? The delightful candy mint?

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find them? I found a couple of sites online, but I'd rather be able to just run and grab them as needed if possible.

    I remember seeing them at Gas Stations and liquor stores recently. I didn't think they were in short supply. Make sure you don't overdose on Retsyn, very dangerous.

    I think I remember certs. Were they a whit with fleck of green in it?

    It's been so long since I've purchased or looked for gum or mints I don't know what's out there anymore.

    Dangerous? Yikes! I'll have to check that out!

    Do you remember which stores/area you saw them at? I've been a mission to find these and it's starting to drive me crazy!

    I'm kidding about the "Retsyn", we had a crazy uncle who swore Retsyn wasn't good for you.

    Are you specifically looking for cinnamon? I'll look at the next gas station I go to.

    my daughter loves those things. her grandmother got her hooked. Nothing like having a five year old addicted to breath mints. Ah, could be worse.

    My grandpa would buy these in bulk at Sams. I don't know if they still carry them or not??

    Yep, remember them well. My grandma would always have some in her purse. Haven't seen them in forever.

    That would be Wintergreen Lifesavers, not Certs.

    Wait didn't Certs do the same thing? I remember we did something in camp with the sparkies candy and I tried to do it at home. Spent $5 trying to find what made sparks... never got it right.
