Goodbye Gum, Hello Butter Mints!

Posted By on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 at 5:07 PM

Tired of freshening your breath with the pedestrian odor of spearmint or wintergreen? Well, American eating habits are here to help you out of the doldrums. Spotted at our local Walgreens pharmacy, these technicolor tablets look just like wedding mints, but promise to taste like butter. The front of the bag suggested a modicum of natural flavors involved, but a close inspection of the ingredients list revealed the presence of "natural flavoring." We're confused, too.

We imagine that butter mints come in handy for all kinds of situations.

For instance, sometimes you're at work and you can't just eat a whole

stick of butter at your desk. Or you run out of the real thing on Thanksgiving and you need something to top off your mashed potatoes. Yum!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
