Liquorice Altoids Simply Amazing

Life is filled with the possibility of upsetting those around us by simple and humble actions. One such action is to take out a box of Altoids breath mints, and casually offer one to someone standing nearby. That look on their face as the baffling flavor of liquorice fills their senses is priceless. Of course, I like Liquorice Altoids, they are much better than Ginger Altoids, which have a bit too much of a medicine flavor for my taste.
Of course, Liquorice Alroids combine two of my favorite things, strong flavors and Great Britain. I love those odd little candies that Dr Who was fond of called Jelly Babies, which have a flavor all their own. I have also watch BritCom most of my life and do a pretty mean Liverpool accent while singing along with the Beatles.
And not everyone hates the Liquorice Altoids, I have met a few people that fell in love with them the way I have and can eat their way through an entire tin a couple hours. I tend to crush them between the old molars as soon as I pop them in my mouth. That little bite at the back of the throat and that rush of flavor is amazing.
I know it is likely helping to destroy the environment, as almost everything these days is, but I love the metal cans and the paper lining that the little compressed disks come in. The Original Celebrated Curiously Strong Mints. You gotta love that kind of old world silliness. Don’t you?
And speaking of silliness, you need to stop by the Altiods website for all kinds of fun and games. The Ads section has a lot of very silly ads for Altoids of one sort or another. Lots of cool looking stuff here. Needs more info on licorice Altoids though. The only thing I found about licorice Altoids was in a shooting gallery, and even there it just brought up an image and that was that. They should have called this site Altoids Eye Candy.
