Hey! Fellow peppermint lover here. :) I can usually find peppermint at Søstrene Grene here in France. I see that the store is in Switzerland, too, so you might be able to find it there as well. They are red and white peppermint hard candies.
In this picture, they are to the right of "confiserie", leftmost on the top row beneath the energy bars in glass containers.
(And of course there's always https://www.americanmarket.ch which stocks peppermint candy canes if you don't care about money. When I lived in Geneva, I went there to buy goldfish crackers.)
