Hee, when I see those I always call them varmints. Not vegan?

Ha! I've had a tin of those in my car for probably five years and it just dawned on me that it's maybe a Vermont pun (?) like two months ago. But I still think vermin whenever I see them.

Ah, I always have added an I in there when I see it: "VeriMints" I thought it was. So odd!

I do this, too!

But when I realized there was no 'i' I thought it was a play on varmints...and maybe it's like Pinko points out here a play on Vermont (the Vermont angle didn't occur to me before though).

Never saw those before! But a play on "Vermont" was the first thing that came to mind.

I've had those before and I think I first bought them in Vermont so it made sense to me. I had never even thought of it as vermin!

Vermin all the way. Vermont didn't even occur to me.

Someone once mailed me a box of those in a package swap. They're pretty good.

Yes, yes, I'm sure they're good.

But their name is (mostly) VERMIN.
