Brush your teeth like a rockstar

I can’t turn down novel liquor. I suppose one could have a worse vice, but I impulse buy the strange dusty stuff on the back of the shelves all the time. Dr. McGilligcuddy’s Mentholmint Schnapps has ended up in my hands on several occasions because of the old thyme style label of a man with a dog but never made it to the checkout counter because of a fear I had; namely the fear that a whole 750mL would go to waste. My spendthrift ways of not wasting food would kick in if this stuff was minty rubbing alcohol and I’d be stuck with a semi expensive bottle of 1800s cure all snake oil. When I saw an airline bottle I finally gave in to the mystery.

To solve this one for you- it’s really really good, as long as you like a fresh mint kick. I was expecting something along the lines of toothpaste and got a fresh and exciting dose of menthol that lingers in the mouth and throat. It perked me up and made my throat feel fresh and tingly in the same vein as an Altoid. It’s sweet and slightly viscous, and makes a fine post-rockstar-bender breath freshener/hair of the dog (if there is no Jack Daniels straight from the bottle laying around, that is).

Bottom Line: B+ for a lightly alcoholic, sweet, refreshing drink thats great on the rocks

Why did it have to be sna—I mean M&Ms.

Sure, this movie came out a while ago. Sure, it was to mostly mediocre reviews. But what we have here, folks, is something entirely different–mint crispy m&ms, which one assumes were made by simply taking the crispy batter and covering it with the mint chocolate. While these are a delicious treat that you can most likely find on sale by this point, there were several problems with them:

  1. They had wildly varying shapes. From blobs to actual m&m shapes! AMAZING.
  2. They are much too delicious to be only once in a lifetime. They taste exactly like thin mint Girl Scout cookies. In fact, why don’t Girl Scouts have their own candies? They’d rock and also probably be completely full of trans fat.
  3. They have nothing to do with any movie ever, unless there is a movie about growing mint plants out of a garden made entirely out of chocolate rice krispies. Which there isn’t, not until I get funding. Corporate scum.
