mojito mint

Remember when the new Orbitz flavor 'sweet mint' came out and every loved it so much. By everyone, of course, I mean me and my three friends. But the point is, 'mojito mint' is now the new flavor. You might think "Geez, you wouldn't think the taste of stale alcoholic beverages would leave you with that fresh-brushed feeling." And you'd be right. My mouth died a little bit the first time I put the piece in my mouth. However, I have acclimated, because as a perectly valid way to get rid of gum I don't like, I stuffed half the pack in my mouth at the same time. Now it's not so bad. But I don't think I'm ever, ever going to buy them again.

This is an appropriate post because the Kentucky Derby is tomorrow (right?), and Kentucky Derby=mint juleps =(is similar to)= mojitos.

I agree! That mint Mojito flavor blows--ha ha like gum. I liked the sweet mint, and it's actually pretty popular around New Mexico. I just realized my credit card is sitting by the computer. That's just dangerous. Love, Leigh

PS there's also the Maui Melon Mint, which is about as weird as it sounds.

I agree - Mojito mint was a huge disappointment. I love the drink, hate the gum.

I just saw a sign for Strawberry Mojitos. My normal reaction would be "That sounds gross, but I'll try it once at least, just to see..." but now I've learned the error of that line of thinking as regards mojito flavors.
