Penguin Caffeinated Mints – Red

Penguin mints are an odd bird, if you'll pardon the pun. Three of the mints will provide you with a caffeine kick equivalent to a typical cola beverage, yet they're proudly sugar free. Trading one vice for the other, I suppose.

The "Red" version of Penguins are cinnamon flavored (the mints also come in chocolate and reqular peppermint).The cinnamon flavor is pretty tame, almost to the point of being unnoticeable. It fades quickly from your mouth, as does any hint of breath freshening.

Maybe the other flavors are a bit stronger or tastier. I'd have to try them to be certain. The main attraction to these would be, I suppose, the caffeine kick without having to guzzle down a whole soda. That, or the fact that the tin snugly holds $100 worth of crack rocks, which is what mine is doing now.
