Peppermint Patty Pucker January 16, 2009

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!?

When I was a teen in Hawaii, we used to love to buy peppermint lip gloss (I think it was Bonnie Bell). It always felt great on the lips after a day at the beach. Brent thought this was an incredibly strange phenomenon. And yet, I married him.

You should seriously consider a separation. What kind of Sasquatch doesn’t understand the obsession with peppermint lip gloss? It’s tingley and minty. What does he use…peach iced tea-flavored lip balm?!
