Absinthe has always been a subject of interest to me. For those unfamiliar, Absinthe is a strong, herb-infused, alcoholic beverage that was extremely popular with artists and authors in the late 19th and 20th centuries. One of the more predominant flavors of Absinthe comes from the aniseed, one of the primary ingredients of my favorite alcohol Arak. Absinthe itself is noted for its green color and stereotypically halluniogenic qualities. The folks over at Archie McPhee have put up a new product, Absinthe Mints, which maintains the unique anise flavor minus the side effects. You can get a set of 2 of these tins for $4.95. Get your giggidy-giggidy on!
