Made by the sugar paste extrusion method, these pencils are a hard spearmint flavoured delight.
Mints are hardy, rapidly growing perennial plants native to Europe and Asia. Peppermint, one of the most widely grown and used forms, is a hybrid of spearmint. I would have guessed it the other way around before doing this research.
Greeks and Romans used mint leaves to relieve pain, and mint has been used in natural medicine to alleviate indigestion for nearly as long. I keep some spearmint pencils in the car for a quick refresher when on a long drive.
