I look at the package and only one real question comes to mind... No I lie, two questions come to mind but for now we'll ignore the monkey drinking a coke. The question I have is, are these mint flavoured or cola flavoured. More importantly if they were both then why would I want to eat them? So now back to the over affricated monkey. Actually the idea of a caffeinated monkey seems pretty entertaining.

Yay, they're not mint flavoured at all, its just cola. It's a pretty strong cola flavour too. It's a little more sour than I would have thought, come to think of it cola really isn't sour at all, so why are these? Maybe it's more of that monkey's shenanigans. First of all these things can't really be doing much for my breath, which is generally why people eat mints. Secondly I taste a little bit of a soapy flavour, it's not as bad as thrills gum or anything but it's kind of gross.

I'm not sure why someone would want to eat these; it's got a slightly nasty flavour with no breath freshening potential. I have to admit that although I do like most cola flavoured candies I always wonder why chose it over a can of cola? That flavour really only works perfectly when it's accompanied by a little carbonation.
