At Wilhelmina, we like to contribute to a better world. That’s why we make more and more of products, like our single packs, with sustainable packaging. This way, we can reduce plastic with 14,512 kg per year! And we put these single packs in a cardboard dispenser, which comes down to an additional 8,282 kg per year. That’s 22,794 kg less plastic every 12 months! Furthermore, the new paper packaging will decompose in nature, if some happens to fall out of your pocket by accident. Which is a relief.
Looking for refreshment? For over 125 years, Wilhelmina has been providing refreshing flavor sensations. It all started with Wilhelmina peppermint. On her 12th birthday, the Dutch queen Wilhelmina received this candy, depicting her own silhouette, as a gift. The royal family appreciated this candy so much, that Wilhelmina became purveyor to the Dutch royal house four years later, in 1896.
Nowadays, our peppermints are even popular in America. You can buy Wilhelmina mints at Trader Joe’s, for instance. With our candy, you’ll always have refreshment close at hand. Whether you’re on a date, preparing for an important presentation, or in need of some you-time.
Our candies are:
- Ideal refreshments for every moment of the day
- Always nearby, you can find our mints and other products at stores like Trader Joe’s
- More and more vegan. Several vegan options already.

Wilhelmina peppermint was developed in 1892 by the company Fortuin. The occasion? It was the 50th anniversary of the company, and at the same time it was an extra special tribute to Queen Wilhelmina, who was 12 years old at the time. The peppermints were such a success that we have been purveyor to the royal household ever since, and that’s something we’re very proud of. By now our other refreshing products, such as sugar hearts with text and Salmiak pastilles, have also become true staples. They are of premium quality and often vegan, and usually they come with sustainable packaging. Wilhelmina is more than just peppermint.
