^I was pleased to see mints posting here!
I've tried them. Theys tasty vermints.
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).
