  • They are compressed tablets of mint, peppermint and cinnamon. It is the product with which the company began and for which it is now recognized throughout the country. At the beginning of 1900, they were made by hand with sheets of cellophane paper; In each envelope they included small photographs with subjects of interest of the time and they were packed in boxes of wood which distributed in small scooters called mosquitoes, mainly in stores of groceries and in the market of La Merced.

Nowadays they are made with the best technology with varieties in natural flavors, without sugar and with organic ingredients in can and blister and the only thing that has not changed and will never change is the quality and flavor of the compressed tablets Usher.

Since then the Mimi palette has sweetened the lives of several generations of Mexicans, appearing even in some films of the golden age of Mexico alongside the great actors of the time.

    The Mimi palette continues to be a favorite of Mexicans and a tradition that goes from generation to generation every time moms enjoy the great taste of Mimi as a family.
