Mint Oreos?

Why?

Good Man doesn’t like mint. It’s not a very common flavor in Korea. He manages mint toothpaste but the rest of it? Not so much.

I guess he didn’t realize that the green tinting of the cream indicated “mint.”

One thought on “Mint Oreos

    So, that makes me curious. What flavor is Korean toothpaste? Mint is such a given here, it’s hard to even imagine the alternatives.

    I don’t what he thinks of cilantro. I don’t use it much in cooking. I do know a lot of Koreans don’t like cilantro.

    EllipsisKnits, the only one I remember is…pine. Pine-flavored toothpaste. Good Man says they have mint, but I think it’s pretty new. I hated the pine stuff at first and then it grew on me. It’s an alternative to drinking floor cleaner. Ha!

    I used to hate mint-flavored ice-cream because it tasted like toothpaste to me. It took me a long time to accept it in food. Oddly enough I was fine with Thin Mints and Andes.

    My born-in-Korea-and-emigrated-in-her-30s-mom loves cilantro, which I (born-in-America) hated at first but now enjoy in moderation. So who knows?

    I can see pine. A friend of ours had some chewing gum from Russia that was pine flavored (actually, I think it was just pine tar intended for chewing). The texture was a little odd, but the flavor was fine. Not all that different from mint really.

    But cilantro? Ew. No cilantro for me. I think it is one of those things people taste differently based on genetics.

    Maybe he thought the green meant “WELLBEING GREEN TEA.” That’s what it means in Korea. All caps, too. Just like that.
