Mint has a great deal to say. This persistent perennial contributes refreshing coolness to food and drink, often with a bittersweet edge and sometimes spiked with notes of pepper. It’s not subtle like some herbs, and makes its presence known in everything from cocktails to candy, regardless of whether the context is savory or sweet. Frankly, it’s hard to overdo its use. Mint is also easy to grow in a window box or garden, allowing for leaves to always be on hand, especially come spring.

Ain’t no salad like a chopped salad. And in my book, ain’t no chopped salad like this one.

I know the words “fun” and “salad” are rarely, if ever, used in the same sentence, but this is ONE FUN SALAD, you guys. There are so many beautiful textures and flavors in every bite.

We’ve got hearty slices of roasted chicken breast, sweet tomatoes, Medjool dates that taste like brown sugar, sharp and salty parmesan, crisp salad greens and a zesty vinaigrette to really liven things up. Sprinkle in some cashews (or whatever nuts you like) for some crunchy, creamy deliciousness

Seasoned racing pros and folks just looking for a fun excuse for a soiree alike know that there are certain things any Derby Day requires. Fashionable hats, some racing-themed decor, and of course, a mint julep. The festive concoction of mint, sugar, bourbon, and crushed ice has long been a staple of the Derby (though it didn’t earn the title of the event’s official drink until 1938) and the traditional metal cups they’re served in have become almost as iconic a symbol of the race day as the horses themselves. And while a classic mint julep

“Unprecedented combination” of chocolate mint and carbonic acid surprises us with its flavour.

While choc-mint products have been dividing opinion overseas for years, the flavour combination only recently arrived in Japan, and ever since it appeared it’s been skyrocketing in popularity.

The choc-mint boom still shows no signs of stopping, and after splashing its minty green hues all over taiyaki cakes, Pocky sticks, and even tapioca ramen, there’s now been another unprecedented development for the flavour combo, with the introduction of a new drink called Kiss Choco Mint.

Mint chocolate may seem like a winter thing, but if we had to pick a season for it, we’d have to put it firmly in early spring. Come on! Look at Shamrock Oreo McFlurries, grasshopper cookies, and now, this mint chocolate Irish cream from Aldi.

Aldi is currently selling Connellys Mint Chocolate Country Cream that will make the perfect addition to your St. Patrick’s Day festivities. The chain has previously sold Connells Country Cream in a strawberry flavor, so this is just another wonderful entry into their boozy collection. Love to see it, frankly! And not only is it delicious,
