Sure! You can come along! No way am I going for a B'ham stalker coupon. Those cops make Chicago's look positively progressive. I could just double up the credit in Paris!

Buy 'em in a carte of 10 from a vending machine at Chas de Gaulle airport.

No comment on the B'ham cops, seeing as how I have to live here and all. DELETED

well, i really hate cola, to begin with, and as far as i'm concerned adding rhum to it can only ruin the rum, rather than improve the cola (that's beyond hope). if i'm going to drink rum, i prefer a good mojito for example. you should try it. like yours it's made with rum, it's a tiny bit bubbly (if you use fizzy water), yet it's several orders of magnitude better, since there is no cola whatsoever in it !

or maybe a ti punch, but i can usually only drink one of those.

I like mojitos. But the tenders around here are sort of slow to get it, never having mint available, when they need it, and all.

huh. i don't see why getting mint should be so difficult. they manage to have plenty of it around here. you can buy it in any four seasons shop, if you want to make your own mojitos (a friend of mine does), or mint tea, or taboulé... it's not hard to grow. maybe you should grow your own ; then you could make your own mojitos, and you wouldn't have to drink that revolting mixture you're stuck with now.

technically though there are so many drinks that even if you stay with rum, and without mint, there is no reason you should ever have to drink anything containing cola. here. my gift to you.

Eeeww, mojitos! Like drinking chewing gum. That's nearly as revolting as the mint tea you get in the mid-East to eat with the shredded goat. I'll stick to Frangos for my mints!

you're clearly doing it wrong. for the mojitos, and for the tea.

LOL! I guess so, but really, I've never liked mint. Has an aunt who grew it by her door, however, and it always smelled nice when we went to visit.

But, the mint tea is good for one thing: In questionable locales with questionable water, at least they boil it to make the tea, so we probably won't get sick from it.

that is a good secondary benefit from it. of course, even without taking that into consideration, it's quite a refreshing drink. if you like mint, of course. and really, when it's done properly, it tastes nothing at all like chewing gum. i promise. i don't actually like chewing gum very much either. i do like altoids though (the curiously strong mints !) and while i have never tasted your frangos-mints-of-the-silly-name, i remain quite skeptical that could possibly be *better*.

Frangos have it all over Altoids. A soft, chewy, chocolaty mint that just makes you roll your eyes and sigh. Only better.

Frangos are the most melty yummy chocolate mints you will ever eat a boxful of on the trolley. The blurb on the box is that some guy named Frango invented the candy and sold the recipe to Marshall Fields. I like the chocolate-filled chocolates best of all! And let me tell you, a boxful of sugar-free mints on the trolley will have you trotting all night! (Warning: Excessive consumption will cause diarrhea!) The niece and nephew always package up a half dozen boxes of assorted flavors and send to us at Xmas. OH NO - Pshrynk, will they still make Frangos now that it is Macys? But maybe my local Macys will start selling them?

As far as that revolting tea, make sure to watch them fix it, so you can make sure they wash the leaves in some boiling water before stuffing it down in the glass. I'm grossing myself out just thinking of it.

You should look for them and loudly demand them at your local Macy's. They have them at mine. Be obnoxious. They're Macy's and they're fuxting with a Chicago Landmark, so they should by ghod have Frangos!

ok, these are clearly just a completely different animal, and should not be compared to altoids (positively or negatively). you could compare them to after eight mints i suppose ; i like those as well, but they're really not at all the same thing as altoids.

(they still have a silly name though).
