seeking an old-fashioned candy

I am looking for a candy shop that still makes fondant mints -- these are flat, round, about the size of a fifty-cent piece, usually smooth on one side and ridged on the other. They used to be common for wedding receptions and such (as well as similar candies molded into flower and bell shapes). Usually they would come in several flavors and pastel colors. I live in Denver, and the last place that made them here stopped many years ago. I'll be in NYC in June, and was wondering if these still exist in the city that has everything.
