Advantages Great minty taste at first, cheap compared to red bull
Disadvantages Don't feel the same buzz, slightly odd after-taste
I first came across these mints when there was a small trial pack attached to a magazine that a friend of mine had. He didn't want them, so I was turned into the "test dummy". Not that I mind, as I'm usually the first person in our group of friends to try new foods out, although I tend to find the most disgusting ones!
As you wear the mint down, the temptation to crunch grows on you, until you can't take it anymore. From here there are obviously two accepted methods of reducing the mint down in size. The first one, which is widely regarded as the finest technique (by top mint connoisseurs from around the globe), is to gently nibble around the mint, much like you would with a Jaffa Cake. The idea is to nibble around and keep moving the mint until you're left with a very small piece which can be crunched and swallowed. The second method, which is favoured by the larger and faster eaters amongst us is the "Hippo Crunch". This method just involves ramming the mint between your teeth until the pieces are small enough to be washed away down the throat. I'm sure you'll agree that this method is rather a waste of a good mint.Once the mint has gone, there's a slightly bizarre after-taste. It's almost a chalky after-taste...it reminds me of the Rennie's tablets that I used to steal from my Granddad when I went to stay with him 15 years ago. It's not a great aftertaste and I found myself wanting to get a drink or have another mint to mask it.
