Vampire Mints

Do you have a Vampire problem? Well, Buffy has been off the air for a few years now, so your next best bet is to pick up some of Archie McPhee’s Vampire Repelling Garlic Mints, a tin of magically disgusting pellets designed to keep Count Dracula and his crew from vanting to suck your blood, bleh!

I’m not going to lie – I was terrified to try the Vampire mints. The garlic smell is ridiculously strong – you can smell it even before you take the plastic shrink wrap off of the very cool-looking metal case that the mints come in. Once the plastic wrap is off – the smell becomes even stronger – not only will it keep a vampire away, but most likely it will keep everyone in your office, your significant other, and the majority of the people in your neighborhood away as well.

The taste is very hard to describe – it’s not quite garlic, and it’s not quite mint. It is, however, quite gross. It’s almost like eating one of those scratch and sniff stickers from the 80′s, or mixing a Pizza Goldfish cracker with a Tic-Tac. Truly revolting.

The concept and the packaging, however, are awesome – the tin has a great design and the mints would make a great gift for Vampire lovers, Vampire-fearers, and anyone who likes a nice, disgusting pizza Goldfish/Tic-Tac combo.

    It sure sounds like a cool thing to pass around the office… and watch people gag. I do that every year with the Jones Soda Toys For Tots limited edition Holiday Sets (Mmm, “tuna pâté” soda, yummy).

    Heh, I used to work in an office where a lady always had jelly beans in a jar on her desk, and the night crew would eat the whole thing, so she bought some of those Bertie’s Every Flavor jelly beans and picked out the gross flavors (like dirt and boogers) and left them out. That worked like a charm.

    These garlic mints sound so filthy. You’re so brave for trying them.

    Haha, now that would be an awesome gift for a gag or just to be cruel. I can only imagine how long it took to get rid of that smell.

    [...] scare me just by hearing the name. I can think of a few though… vomit flavored jellybeans, garlic mints, Hotlix (candy with real bugs in it). I think these Chum Bucket Mints are some of the scariest [...]

    I argued with my 3 year-old for 20 minutes tonight about whether vampires are real and, if so, whether I will actually protect him from them.

    Candy: problem solved. Isn’t that always the case?
