The gentle Dutch peppermint, created on the 50th anniversary of Fortuin confectioners (founded 1842) in the name of Queen Wilhelmina. Their slogan: Peppermints good enough for the Queen herself.

Such superb packaging. This box came in a birthday parcel from K. (thank you!)

They remind me of a friend's Grandma (Beppe) who would keep a box of Wilhelminas in her dress pocket and during church services would dole them out to her grandchildren.
