Red Bird original soft Peppermint Puffs. The Piedmont Candy Company has been making soft peppermint puffs in North Carolina for over 100 years. We think they have perfected the soft peppermint puff. When soft peppermint puffs are made they are hard, and as time passes they gather moisture from the air and become softer. The beauty of these Red Bird soft peppermint puffs is if you would like them softer then just unwrap a handful and leave them out, they will become even softer over time. Experiment and find your perfect puff time. Each package has 240 individually wrapped peppermint puffs.
