I want to make the choc royal mini puddings, but cannot find mint leaves anywhere!
I have tried 3 Coles and 2 Woolies and one lady in Woolies even told me they no longer sell them.

Anyone finding this?

If so what have you used as a replacement? I was thinking jubes and cut them but need to get a packet with lots of green ones.

Any suggestions? I don't think icing would look as good

Have had this problem every year when I've wanted to make them.  If you have one near you try Kmart or one of those discount lolly shops.  Have had success in both of those in years gone by.  If you're not too fussed about quality I've even found them in some $2 shops in the past.

Good luck.

You could try ordering them online... I'm not sure how soon you need them though. A quick google shows that Allen's still makes them and you can order them online from several lolly shops.

I bought some in Woolworths last week (WA). They were the Woolies home brand.

Where about are you? There is a place in Melbourne that sells them called the world's biggest lolly shop. They do online orders as well. Saying that, I usually see them at Kmart.
