Something odd happened to me recently… I ate a candy cane that tasted like peppermint. It didn’t taste like Starburst, Skittles, Life Savers, any kind fruit, chocolate, peanut butter, pop-corn, or any other kind of mint. In fact, I don’t recall the last time I had a peppermint candy cane. Isn’t THAT odd?
Caveat: it was sugar-free. (Insert shiver here.)
