I have a few tins of them, they are pretty much anise mints. They lack all the other flavor profiles.

Yes,those Italian absinthe chocolate bars were far more authentic, even.

Anise + mint = :puke:

Agreed. A little mint is too much.

No way can this thread stay on topic. Bull balls.

I love the link to how Rachael Ray is losing weight.

I refuse to click that link onacuz I despise her that much, but I can only hope she's eating a steady diet of those Rocky Mountain Oysters.

Bull balls.

Notice how the bronze bull's balls are more polished than the rest of it?

Wash and clean testicles thoroughly. Boil until tender.

OWWWWW!! That shouldn't take long!

That's just nuts.

A lower-Manhattan meander may be in order before or after the DUNY event in April. I nominate the Dream House. The only way I would be able to go to ground zero is tipsy, so maybe that, too.

Hmmph....I'll leave Joe to explain the Testicle Festival to all you non-Montanans out there.
What part of Klaatu Barada Nikto don't you understand?


...because shoddy absinthes will be flavored with the lubricator of take the lead anise.

I should clarify they are anise flavored. When I stated "mints" I meant it as a generic term for the candy and not a mint flavoring.
