Hilarious Girl Overshares

I was not prepared for this hilarious girl to overshare so much. It started out as a simple video totaste-testt some cheese crackers from the Netherlands. Things got out of hand quickly. 

Every Flavor of Tic Tac Ever, and a Brief History

No comments:

Tic Tacs are those tiny little mints, in the familiar hard, clear, plastic case. As a kid, they are fun to shake like a maraca, and as an adult, they provide a refreshing, breath-freshening treat. But, where did they come from? Would you believe me if I said, Nutella?

Yep, in 1969 Ferrero opened offices in New York City. They already had a yummy chocolate spread, but they wanted to introduce something new, so along came the Tic Tac. Interestingly, they were created by the founder's son during the legendary Summer of Love. Think about it, it's hard to get your love on, when your breath stinks.

This begs the question, if these are Italian, does eating them make you unpatriotic? The answer is yes, probably. Oh well, they are super tasty! 

When they first came out they were referred to as (rather uninspired), "Refreshing Mints." Oh bravo, Mr. Marketing Guy. How did you come up with that? The next year they were renamed to reflect the sound they make in your pocket. 

They started out with two flavors, Fresh Mint, and Orange. Ahh, Orange Tic Tacs. They make no sense as a mint; they have no right to be a mint, but it works. Plus their bright orange color is perfect for hunters who want to stay visible. Like a hunting vest in a mint.

In 1980, Tic Tac spread its way across 5 continents! That's all of them right? 1, carry the 3, divide by... Yep! That's all of them!

World's Grossest Drink?

No comments:

Could this be the world's grossest drink? This is a bird's nest and white fungus drink from Vietnam. It is chunky, thick, and everything I don't want in a drink.
