Ginger Candies

A sweet and spicy treat for a Saturday afternoon:


Newman’s Own Ginger Mints:
The Newman’s Own brand has four varieties of mints: Cinnamon, Ginger, Peppermint and Wintergreen, with the ginger ones pictured above being simply amazing.

Chimes Ginger Chews:
Indonesian ginger chews from ginger grown in the mineral-enriched soil of Mt. Bromo.

From the Chimes website:

In 1935, a young couple decided to open up a modest café in a town near Mt. Bromo. One day, an herbalist stopped by the café, and ended up giving the couple a recipe for a chewy ginger candy to help supplement their meager income.

Three generations later, Chimes Ginger Chews are made by the same family in the same town where the café was 70 years ago! Today, Chimes employs hundreds of local villagers, and we are privileged to make a difference in the lives of our employees, their families and the community in which they live. Our production has been so notable, that East Java celebrates our ginger chews as a “Heritage Industry.”
