Does Sutliff make a blend matching that? ;)
Sutliff frosty mint + some sort of chocolate tobacco. Go very easy on the frosty mint. You're welcome.

Went shopping today and I perused the candy aisle. Add Junior Mints to the list of things I think are better than Andes Mints. Don't get me wrong, I would totally eat an Andes Mint without reservation. I just wouldn't buy a bag of them.
Boom!

I need to find some of those.. I love me some peppermint bark.

This sounds like a good experiment for the press. I would almost say Amphora Full Aroma for the cocoa you get off of a tootsie pop.. At least that's how Full Aroma comes off to me, and I love it.

I didn't even think of pressing it. That's a stroke of genius

I have the first sample of mints with some Penzance included (thanks to @Bro Uhaha and @Kevin Keith ) for palate cleansing between tastings. The pipe is included in the picture for scale. So far the Andes mints are the best.

If the Sunday School kids (or the Montessori kids even) spot these in my office, I am going to have some little fingers issues here too. I need to hide them now.

Or at least save a couple for your comparison. The grocery store by my father's house has them so when I go over Saturday I pick up a few boxes. I don't have any Penzance tho... lol

It is all good. Picayune works too, and I have plenty of that.
