@cinoclav@Seeds You were lucky. I got vision problems, memory problems, muscle weakness, clinical depression, and ultimately 3 seizures from sucralose poisoning before I figured out it was the cause. Thank Nestle for that nightmare.
I got peppermint. It has a nice peppermint flavor at first, then just moments later it tastes like chewing a vitamin. And not like a “‘ten million strong and growing’ so we’re kinda hiding it behind some fruit flavoring vitamin”, like a “you’re an adult and your life is disappointment” kinda vitamin
OH MY GOD I got the mixed berry and it’s so horrible. I feel like I am chewing on a mouthful of pennies or something that were soaked in ammonia and mold or something else super scary. Not sure. Can’t keep any in my mouth for very long, maybe a few minutes, so I’m not sure of the caffeine effect. That was a unwell-spent 8 clams.
Perfect timing as I’m on my last can of orange Mentos Now “mints”- I had no adverse effects from them unless I overdid the qty per day, in which case, that chili-around- the-campfire scene in Blazing Saddles had nothing on me.
@uninflammable I know you’re joking, but I have to say please don’t do that. Granted, you’d have to eat over 100 to really be approaching the ld50, but do you really even want to be even at a single digit fraction of what would kill half of the population?
I don’t care for the extreme bitterness after the mint flavor wears off. It does give a pretty instant kick, but the debilitating crash an hour or so later is (for me) extreme. I’ll be giving most of this away - some of my co-workers really enjoyed it.
