In case you don't know what a Frango Mint is, it is creamy smooth chocolate through and through. The Bon Marche in the Seattle, Wa. area made these mints exlusively. Very popular especially around Christmas as gifts. Those that moved away would ask friends to send them some. They are that good. The Bon Marche is now Macy's, so maybe the mints will spread to other parts of the country.
