XXX Mints With A Kick Of Chilli (WH Smiths)



I was having a look at what’s new in the mint section next to the check out in WH Smith, I saw the usual XXX Mints, then saw this red tube sitting next to them. XXX Mints are not something I ever considered mild, but it seems Fox’s felt the flavour needed further invigoration. In order to spice things up, quite literally, they added chilli!
The sweets inside the tube are the usual white lozenges you would expect, but the tell tale sign was they are also speckled with red. They look harmless enough, almost pretty in fact, but I still sensed something sinister about this small sweet.
I braved it, and tried one. My first thought was that the main flavour was the usual intense XXX Mint, this was just before I noticed the burning sensation on my tongue! The chilli flavour kicked in, and my mouth was ALIVE and experiencing something HOT, and something intensely COLD all at once. If you think the flavours would balance themselves out, it turns out you would be wrong, they sent my taste buds into overdrive! Wow!
They certainly are an experience, and I have to say my nose has never been so clear, but I’m still waiting for my mouth to forgive me.
