Peppermint Patty Pucker January 16, 2009Posted by smooregasbord in Beauty.
Ranked high among my many obsessions is lip balm. Not to mention that a visit to Walgreens, for me, is basically like setting a kid loose in a candy store. So many fun things, so little funding! Casey had to return a purchase to our local Walgreens, so I was free to roam about looking for new products to try. Bee-line to the lip balm. There I spotted a tube of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Butter…in dark chocolate and peppermint. This combination I find yummy in many things like Junior Mints and Brownies, but I would like to also point out that it can go terribly wrong. Knowing that the chocolate is artificial, there was the potential for this to be a complete flavor disaster. Upon my first smear, I was pleasantly surprised by the Junior Mint-esque scent…but slightly disappointed in the lack of flavor. Not just in the fact that it didn’t taste the way it smelled, but that it didn’t taste at all. No flavor. Of course, maybe that’s the point. If it tasted so good that you licked your lips constantly, would you really be doing your chapped smoochers any favors!?
