Mint flavoured hard boiled sweets with a chewy centre.
The Everton Mint is a traditional British mint best known for its distinctive black and white colouring. The mints were first produced in a Liverpool sweet shop close to Goodison Park, home of football club Everton FC – hence the name. The owner of the sweet shop created the mints to appeal to Everton fans, making them black and white in honour of the team’s then black and white kit. She even persuaded the club to let a girl walk around the ground before matches, throwing mints into the crowd! Needless to say the mints caught on and remain hugely popular – even if Everton have since changed their kit colour to blue!
