Mojito gum?

I’m not a big fan of mojito drinks, but late this morning, I tried Orbit’s new Mojito Mint Gum. It’s actually not too bad. Now when jen_ashlock gets a craving for a Mojito, she doesn’t have to fork out $15 for one; instead, just pop a piece of Mojito-flavored gum and you’ll be set!

This sounds like a joke, I know. In fact, it sounds like one of the commercials that strausmouse and I would have put into our stories back in high school. But I’m not kidding. They really made Mojito-flavored gum. I’m chewing it right now. Just wait, Mai-tai-flavored gum is just around the corner, and Tequila-flavored gum is not too far away either, I’m sure…

Off to lunch…
