so, a few hours ago i was driving from one place to the other (yes, that's how i drive) when i noticed that there was a large lifesaver� candy on the other seat. i should explain that it was one of those large, individually wrapped lifesavers� and that i had found it underneath the seat a day or two prior. that probably means it had been there for months, especially since i do not recall purchasing or otherwise procuring it, but not necessarily.
anyway, i wanted a bit of candy and it looked to be a faded purple � faded candy, never a good sign � but i figured it was still wrapped and it wasn't wet or anything, so i put it in my mouth.
i'm not sure, but i think the outermost layer was half-disintegrated because it seemed too slippery in my mouth for a chalkyish candy to be. that's another thing, it resembled a sweetart� in both color and texture and even somewhat in initial flavor, and the more i thought about it the less i remembered lifesavers� ever having made such a treat. i was concerned, but not extremely so.
the flavor was half-weak grape sweetart� and half-weak anonymous candy filler flavor not unlike a lik-m-stik�. and if you think that sounds appealing, allow me to disabuse of that thought. (be ye disabused.) while i was not happy with the candy at all, it was not repulsive enough to spit out, yet.
i was still trying to figure out why the texture and flavor were not improving, which i had chalked up to too many days in a hot car, when all of a sudden the flavor went all minty on me. so it was out the window in a flash, but that left me with the problem, was it a grape lifesaver� that somehow turned minty, or was it a mint lifesaver that had degraded to the point of significantly changing color and drastically changing flavor? i'm guessing the latter, but neither are very appealing, considering whatever it was, i had started eating it.
also, new h[#]umor (link on the left) if you are interested.
