Complimentary Mints

One of the nicest and best things about Chick-Fil-A: every meal, you get at least two mints. Individually wrapped. Melt-in-your-mouth mints.

That got me to thinking: shouldn’t every meal come with complimentary mints – everywhere? I mean, it’s so nice to have minty-fresh breath after you eat… well… whatever you eat. It’s either that or mini-Binacas, and I don’t think mini-Binacas are going to happen anytime soon.

I think that one of my Presidential Platforms (vote for me in ’16!) will be that every restaurant is to give out at least two individually wrapped, complimentary mints to each diner.

Just the same, Chic-Fil-A can suck it.

I had to look up Binaca- with the plural, it was anything from a place to a person's name and then some variations that I'm not sure about. Once I took the "s" off, I found out it was a breath spray brand name that Walgreens carries. Learn something new everyday... oh, and yeah, it would be nice if every eating establishment provided you with a complimentary something to freshen your breath.

Huyen! Nice to hear from you here.

I visited friends in MD earlier this summer, and they told me they love this one seafood place because of the mints that they have at the door: they are chocolate mints covered with a pastel coating--I am sure you have all had them. As my friends were stuffing their pockets, I amazed them by telling them that you can BUY these the grocery store! They are having a house-warming (should that be hyphenated?) party, and yes, I will buy them bags and bags of the chocolate mints. They are rather addictive.

I have a couple friends who don't like mints....they are Cinnamon People.
