The first original curiously strong mints date all the way back to 1780, when they were created by the London-based company Smith & Company – their charter was signed by King George III! In the nineteenth century, Smith & Company was purchased by Callard & Bowser, Inc., and in the twentieth century Callard & Bowser was acquired by the American firm Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company. But, through it all, Altoids have survived, a never-ending tradition of excellence!
Now, the Altoid brand has been enlarged to include these wonderful ginger mints. A long time ago I found that ginger helped me with motion sickness, well, imagine my surprise when I found out that these snappy little ginger mints help that out as well. Overall, I really like these candies. Yes, they are strong, and quite gingery – if you are not a fan of ginger, then you probably will not like them. As for me, I think they are great!

Ordered on 26 March 2009, order confirmed via email. Received email 3 days later saying that the order was canceled by AlwaysDirect. "Our sellers strive to minimize cancelled orders. We're sorry for any inconvenience this has caused."
If the item is not in stock, specify it on the web page.
If an order has to be canceled for any reason, specify why it was canceled.
AlwaysDirect did email me shortly after posting the above review with an apology and explanation that Amazon requires items to be shipped within 48 hours which resulted in the cancellation.
I would change the star rating since they responded to my complaint so promptly, but Amazon is not giving me the option to edit the star rating.
