Is it just me or has gum gotten mintier lately?

Just drink some water, BAM instant maximum coldness

The mint scientists work behind an iron veil of secrecy. Be careful!

They do though

@Icy-layer They do though

Gum's gotten mintier lately. Have you noticed? Like, some of it's just too minty. It's like they're literally trying to hurt…

Someone should SPEARhead this idea

What would happen if you mixed the coldest mint leaves with the spiciest peppers?

because mint is gross

The coolest mints I can find are Corsican, Mountain, and Robert Mitchum. Source: am a greenhouse buyer.

Pineapple mint is basically just a variegated version of apple mint. It doesn't smell or taste like pineapple. Pineapple salvia on the other hand smells very similar to fresh pineapple. It's one of the best smelling plants in the world IMO.

Minty is just cold spicy

That's because eating spicy has become less about having a delicious product and more about macho dick-waving bs.

@Longsanks That's because eating spicy has become less about having a delicious product and more about macho dick-waving bs.

I love spicy food, but I love flavour. If all I can taste is heat and pain, that's a waste of food.

You're right that would be a FRESH idea

You do realize there are many types mints. We in Kentucky take our mint seriously as we will have no juleps for the derby 🐎 without it. I have chocolate flavored, peppermint, wintermint and pineapple mint in my garden. It is invasive so you have to control it.

As a big drinker and mojito lover. Tell me more about these julips and possibly some variations with the different mint you use.

We had some chocolate mint in our garden and it was so aggressive we let it grow next to the house. It thrived for a wile until some ivy choked it out.

Definitely invasive. I found a huge patch of chocolate mint growing wild in a park near my house. I grabbed a bunch and dried it out for tea

@contextrip There's mint that tastes like god damn chocolate?

Not at all. It is called it more so for the darker color of the plant. Some can have a slightly different scent from regular peppermint, but it is still peppermint.

Pineapple mint... That sounds awesome. I need to get some of that. I currently have some random type that my Armenian neighbour gave me.

People eat super spicy peppers to impress people, not because they enjoy them. Mint isn't seen as unpleasant so it won't impress anyone.

@monsterallergies It will impress people if you make it so cold that your breath fogs up

Yeah, when I see someone eating an ice cube I'm like, "Whoa, what a badass!"

@Girlislit When I see someone eating ice cubes, I think iron deficiency...

How does eating ice equate to iron deficiency? Just curious

@Girlislit How does eating ice equate to iron deficiency? Just curious

I'm not sure if its like actual science or a myth at this point in time, but iron deficiency and anemia were like two major reasons some people chew/eat ice.

I like super spicy peppers...and I'm alone in the world with nobody to impress.

Delicious...and sad.

@Tanmoykayesen Super spicy peppers helped me quit smoking. I swear by them.

That's the first I've heard of it. Do you just eat one when you get a craving? I can see that working because from what I've learned quitting is largely based on distracting yourself from cravings.

Munching a scorpion pepper is a great way to distract yourself from _everything else in the world_.

As a smoker and lover of spiciness I second this. How does it work? Butthole on fire > lungs on fire

The burning sensation itself isn't enjoyable, but the endorphins that come with it is pretty fun

@americanthaiguy And here you are telling people that to impress them.

Or is he saying it here to contradict your absurd statement?

@BigMemer Or is he saying it here to contradict your absurd statement?

Spiciness activates literal pain receptors. Sure I like a little spicy food but there is a point when it becomes unejoyable. To deny that makes you either a liar trying to impress people or a masochist. That is a mental disability similar to someone who cuts themselves. There are far more people that are overly concerned with how they are perceived by others than people who inflict pain on themselves so that's the best assumption.

I love spicy foods. The line between enjoyment and suffering is decided the day after on the toilet. And the recipe is amended accordingly. As to your comparison to a mental illness. Pain releases endorphins. Carefully managed it gives you a pleasant high.

I would prefer that they bred cilantro that didn't taste like soap.

Have you noticed that gum has gotten mintier lately?

people enjoy mint until it lingers too long, and overwhelms the taste of everything, spicy peppers are only spicy for a little while, unless you are an idiot and have nothing to get rid of the spicy taste.

@Thatoneduderyan How about some mint to get rid of that spicy taste?

Then all that is left is a minty taste with residual spice.

I actually like the taste of spicy food.
