Properties of Dutch Pepermunt
Pepermunt is a peppermint candy with a wonderful mild peppermint taste, not too spicy and wonderful for sucking or biting. Besides the Peppermint Taler there are also softer Pepermuntkussentjes and Taler extra strong with an extra strong peppermint taste, so there is something for every peppermint fan!
Pepermunt is often served after a meal in the Netherlands to give a good mouth feel and fresh breath. They taste wonderfully fresh, sweet and delicious.
Other Dutch brands such as Mentos or King are also very popular manufacturers of Pepermunt in the Netherlands and, in addition to the traditional peppermint thalers, also carry somewhat softer Pepermunt pillows with an even softer core.
History of Dutch Pepermunt
The Dutch peppermint is traditionally white and often in the form of a taler. Pepermunt has been industrially produced in the Netherlands since the end of the 19th century. With the Pepermunt brand Wilhelmina Pepermunt, traditional brands such as Fortuin have launched delicious peppermint sweets in honour of the then ruling Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands and enjoy great success to this day.
Did you know that?
Wilhelmina Pepermunt has been around for 125 years. The white peppermint coins bear the profile of the former Dutch Queen Wilhelmina, who reigned at the end of the 19th century.
King Pepermunt was launched on the Dutch market at the beginning of the 20th century and is popular for the extra strong version of its Pepermunt in addition to the traditional peppermint sweet.
Mentos is a well-known manufacturer of peppermint dragees beyond the borders of the Netherlands and has also been offering delicious Mentos Dessert Mints, small cushions with a whiter core, in the Netherlands for a few years now.
