Good Company, great mint balls. They are sometimes very hot if you get a buble in the middle.

A great smell when the mint balls are being made, just as pleasing as when fresh bread was being baked at Rathbones.

Anyone remember the dairy in this area and the endless clatter of bottles being washed.

Hi Ellen, it depends where you live in Canada. I live in Abbotsford B.C. and I asked our local "English Store" to get them in for me. By the way good pic. I used to walk past all the time in my younger days

Ken R - I'd get very hot too if I had a (Michael) Buble around my middle too! LOL

Ironically, just this past week sent a tin of Uncle Joe's to a friend in Pekin, Illinois.

Nice that this pic and the factory is still in the present and not from the past.
