For those who want to dip their toes in the Tide Pod culinary waters, Choward’s Violet Mints are for you.
Most people agree that they have a strange soap flavor. It’s hard to believe that everyone isn’t clamoring for more violet-flavored candies in their diets. If ice cream were violet-flavored, most children would stop begging for it as the ice cream truck drives by. And probably hurl themselves under the nearest bed, just to be sure.
I ordered mine from Amazon, 3 packs of alien candies.
Strangely, I couldn’t resist sniffing the package, much like a German Shepherd trained to detect drugs at an airport.
I’m confident that most people would be repulsed by these, just like they might be if they bite into a boiled egg only to find that it has been filled with grape jelly and iguana blood.
These candies were once popular.
I speculate that they might be part of the reason that people once died so young.
I’m glad I tried them, though. I keep impulsively eating them, much like the compulsion to pick at a scab as it hardens.
I can’t decide if I actually like them, or if they somehow fulfill an unstated desire to punish myself for some unidentified crime.
I’m going to eat all 3 packs of mine, though. My breath will smell better than a fresh load of laundry, too.
