Sherbet mints in apotheosis

Lamme’s Candy has a long and illustrious history here in Austin. There are branches around town, but it’s fun to head for the source. In the factory store, at the sign of the lamb and candy cane out on Airport near Quality Seafood, you can select what you want, piece by piece. It’s not delicate; it’s beautifully fresh; and you haven’t tasted almond or pecan bark, with dark or with milk chocolate, until you’ve tasted Lamme’s. The February issue of Tribeza includes a photograph that absolutely glorifies Lamme’s sherbet mints. No matter what the color, they’re all peppermint, with no traditional lemon, lime, and wintergreen. They’re packed in the historically appropriate white pasteboard box with a clear window. The name of the photographer who stacked them up and brought out their inner beauty is Frank Curry, of Studio Penumbra. On the page following the mints, chocolate gets the treatment. Tribeza is to be found fairly reliably at Book People.
