You read that correctly. Captain Black's Grog Flavored Pirate Mints. I'm not really sure there's anything more to say but here's the blurb:
Pirates aren't interested in fresh breath, so you won't find any fancy peppermint or spearmint in these Pirate Mints. You might, however, detect the unique flavor that every pirate craves - grog! Shove a handful in your mouth and chew them while shouting orders to your crew! Each 2-1/4" round tin contains one hundred mints.
That little snippet actually comes from Archie McPhee's unparalleled website where a tin of groggy goodness will set you back $2.50. That is indeed a small price to pay for grog breath from the time you roll out of your cot until the sun's over the yardarm. Should you doubt me, feel free to ask my St. Bernard who is a great connoisseur of breath.
If you happen to live in the greater Anchorage, Alaska area, you can pick up a tin at the very spot where lovely Laurel got mine: Title Wave Books and Gifts. Although they recently cut back on author readings and signings, which is too bad, they're still full of great stuff (mostly books, which are the greatest things of all aside from ships).
Grog mints are a great conversation starter and they really do taste a bit like grog. I can't recommend them enough. Good thing I have two tins!
Happy Friday, Brethren. See you tomorrow for Sailor Mouth Saturday.
