    This was a dud. It would not set up wasn’t thick enough up on parchment paper. My husband doesn’t like the combination of orange and peppermint either.

      Hi Roxy, Sorry that your candy didn’t set up properly. I haven’t had that problem. Perhaps if you try again you can use only peppermint or orange (or other flavors), and he’ll enjoy.
