Where to buy Fry's Peppermint Creams in T5?

I have a five hour layover at T5 later today (TLV - LHR - LAS) and my mission is to buy as many Fry's Peppermint Creams as I can fit into my luggage. Does anyone recall seeing them in a shop in T5? Thank you!

Have you considered ordering from Amazon? A 24-count box is being offered for $28.48 for U.S. delivery.

If not, do any UK supermarkets sell them?

Perhaps you could arrange for someone on FT who is also flying later today, to buy loads and meet you airside?

It’s hard to tell whether you’re being serious or not? If not then it fits right in to this thread. If you are being serious then this has the potential to be a memorable 2023 crazy thread.

This sounds very much like a thing WH Smith would have. I will have a look later on today and see if they do have it.

In UK
Asda, Morrisson, B&M and Poundland all do them
Pack of three bars for £1.00

Similar for me on the rare occasion I head to the states..... with Peanut Butter M&Ms

Do Tesco stock them? If so, there is a large Tesco near Hatton Cross which is easily accessible from T5 - get the buses towards Feltham/Richmond and get off at the Central Way stop. You can then get a bus directly back to T5. If aircraft are landing on runway 27L there are also excellent views if you’re into that sort of thing.

Mrs firstlight says not available in tesco and has suddenly started craving them when i mentioned this thread. Amazon looks like the best bet with the individual fruit fondant flavours also available as well as the peppermint. Let's say I wouldn't be surprised to see some arrive on our doorstep soon...

I think you will struggle. I get them from old fashioned news agent. Marks and Spencer or WH Smith possibly.

I don't have an Amazon account, and I'm not willing to make one for this. I found them at WH Smith on the upper level at T5A, for just over one pound each. Listed as 1.59 each, but got a discount of about 50p each at the register.
