These mints have been made in Vichy since 1828, when a local pharmacist found out how to extract the minerals from the town's famous thermal waters. He mixed the extract with sugar and natural mint flavors to produce these refreshing tablets. A favorite of the Empress Eugenie, the octogonal pastilles were immensely popular in the nineteenth century, not only for their reputed ability to ease heartburn but for their minty flavor. The vogue for thermal waters has passed, but the candies remain, a testament to their tastiness.
