Since 1985, Robitaille's Candy Co. in Carpinteria, CA has been the exclusive purveyor of handmade chocolate mints for the presidential inauguration parties.
Every four years, Robitaille's switches from its normal pastel color scheme and produces patriotic mints in red, white and blue known as the Inaugural Mints. If you miss your chance to taste one at the upcoming festivities, you can order a box online from the Robitaille's website. They also make some wicked looking chocolate walnut fudge. It's a family-run business with no machines; all the mints are handmade.
