    These look so yummy! We like to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with food, too. We’re not Irish, either, but we need something to break up all the winter/early spring gray monotony!

      Hi Madeline! Sorry you can’t find them! I purchased the mint M&M’s at Target. They sell them everywhere here from the local grocery stores to the gas stations. You might have to purchase them online and have them shipped to you.

      Really? Wow! The two of you live so far away from each other. That must be hard! No, I am in the middle of the United States and I am not even Irish! But it is still fun to something to celebrate in the middle of winter so we wear green and each mint flavored desserts. ๐Ÿ™‚
