What's with all the Minty Stuff?

In the beginning there was this:








and maybe This:












And for ice cream lovers, of course there was This



But recently, everywhere I look there is this


Or This

And then yesterday, when I was helping myself to the office candy in the candy dishes, what the heck is THIS



And then it struck me. You are all trying to get the sensation. But you will never. I repeat never. Be this



Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed this minty wanna-be sensation??

are they trying to give me fresh breathe and chocolate all at the same time?
And who are they kidding?

I've gotta add another comment, because the verification word is mente

So, um, yeah, nothing beats the sensation. And I'm the WTF camp for the mint 3 musketeers. Somehow, I have no desire to try them, and I'm usually a sucker for the combo of chocolate -- the darker the better -- and mint.

You know, they make some new M & M's premium in mint too - and they are to die for!

Please pass the chocolate! :)

I know I'll probably be shot but none of them look appealing to me!

I'm not really a big chocolate person but then again maybe it's because its only 7:10 AM!

We are a society full of a bunch of lazy people that don't like to brush their teeth much (not me) and so the candy companies are trying to help us out....
personally Junior Mints and Peppermint patties rock my socks!! They can't be compared to. ;)

It's insurance. We want to tell you that your breath is off-kilter, but don't want to risk catching you in a PMS rage. So we combine the two in order to kill two birds with one stone. We don't have to smell your lunch now, and your possible PMS rage has a better chance of being subdued by chocolate.
