About Frango Mints
In America, Frango has been melting hearts for more than a hundred years — since the first time in Seattle’s Frederick and Nelson department stores, it was served as a frozen dessert.
Candymaker Ray C. Alden, captivated by the taste, dedicated himself to making a frozen confection-inspired chocolate. In his secret recipe he included cocoa beans, butter and triple distilled Oregon peppermint oil, originating from the African and South American coasts. Frango mint chocolate was born after comprehensive and enthusiastic taste tests. It soon became a popular Northwest tradition, well ahead of time as artisanal chocolate.
Similar but distinct, the Frango recipes retain for generations to come the passion, culture and rich heritage of frango. All the Frango recipes remain secrets – and every chocolate is made with love and care.
Frango also holds a desirable position as one of America’s favorite food in spite of his tenure as luxury chocolate.
Frango and Macy’s
Seattle’s community leaders promised that Frango chocolates will continue to be distributed in the northwest by Seattle’s only full-line department store, The Bon Marche. In 2003, The Bon Marche became a Macy’s store, and in 2006, Chicago’s Marshall Field’s did likewise.
Macy’s took control of Frango through its mergers and continued to maintain the roots of the Frango in both Seattle and Chicago. Macy’s has extended the legacy of Frango through massive online distribution at macys.com.
Garrett Brands purchased Frango from Macy’s Inc. in January 2017, but Macy’s continues to market the mouthwatering goods from Frango.
