Hi! it's halloween today, went out and did some naught stuff with my friends, while we got candy.(i.e. throwing eggs.)Yet the strangest thing happened. My friends cousin threw his halloween goodie bag on the street and I happened to pick up a peculiar looking pack of mentos. Its size is half a lighter. It contains 6 pieces of mentos. Out in the night when I picked it up it was a blueish color, so I assumed it as mint. When i deposited it in my room, I noticed, hey! its green! the wrapper around the tube, has one sentence written in japanese right above the NTOS. and above the ME there is E and 10,5 G written on it. The word MENTOS repeats itself three times down the wrapper. Each one has Green apple written in another language. The first one says Appeldragees, then its bonbons croque-tendres aroma pomme(accent mark over the o in aroma), the third one says apfeldragees. All these titles have ingredients written in their respective language, though right under the apfeldragees, it says in the same red color as the other language title of green apple, Chewy apple flavoured sweets. It then has the ingredients written in english. OH MAN AM I GETTING A HANKERING FOR THESE. IM SO GLAD MY FRIENDS COUSIN DROPPED IT OR MORE LESS THREW IT AND I PICKED IT UP. MMMMMM....

P.S. the cover art looks much better then the original mentos, has these shiny green morsels of mentos like youre looking in a bucket full of them.
