Mints are mints.
Sure, they can be circle or square, chewy or hard, powdery or smooth, but they’re still mints, man. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
But after a fat meal with friends, when your body’s food-chomping engine is revving for some afterburn, there’s nothing sweeter than getting a surprise treat with your bill. Because let’s face it, paying for the meal is no fun. There’s all the who ordered what, all the mental math aerobics, and all the tipping awkwardness. Is it 10%? 20%? What if we picked up our food at the window and were only briefly guided to our table by someone who only slightly resembled Lurch from the Adams Family? What do we do then? Ahh the madness!
Plus, all of this post-meal hub-bub happens at a cloudy table full of garlic breath and beermouth.
We most definitely need something to lighten the mood, and the stench, around here. Something like a handful of Andes chocolates, a spoonful of rainbow colored Lifesavers, or some good old-fashioned lollipops.
