The Bassetts 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, one Mother Noblett, 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!
Most popular with customers in United States of America (USA), France, Netherlands, Canada, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Colombia and Austria, but you can buy Bassetts Everton Mints for delivery worldwide.

I still remember the toffee girls throwing handfuls of these into the crowd at the first Everton game I ever went to. They're quite strongly mint flavoured for a sweet and when you manage to crack through it are filled with a delicious chewy toffee. Unless it's a cold Saturday afternoon, then they're you have to suck them or risk cracking a tooth.
Everton mints are one of the reasons why British sweets are the best sweets in the world. Delicious mint flavoured candy with a toffee filling, that lasts for ages! These are actually 'edible souvenirs' that I bring back as presents for friends from every trip to the UK. They have a perfect balance of sweetness and mintiness that makes them everyone's favourite.
