I often see some weird and interesting things on the bus, but the past few weeks have been fairly humdrum. Until this past Thursday, that is. I was sitting at the back of the Rt 12, quietly reading my book, when the bus stopped at 15th and Locust. A pretty blonde in sixties-style mod white ran on the bus, passing out gum to all the passengers. That’s when I noticed there was a bevy of pretty blondes in sixties-style mod white all around: on the bus, on the corner, on the street. They were handing out sample packs of new Orbit “Mint Mojito”, and as quickly as she got on the bus she was gone again, and I was left with a single piece of gum in my hand and a “What the…?” on the tip of my tongue.

    Aw man, I wish I would encounter those women in NYC! After seeing the commercials for the mint mojito with Steve-O, I have been looking everywhere for it. Orbitz is already the best gum, but this flavor really takes the cake. You gotta love a gum named after an alcoholic drink. So… how did it taste?

    It was very tasty! I’m glad I got a free try, it is definitely a flavor I would enjoy in the future.
