Metromint has really nailed it with this one. Where the flagship Peppermint flavor was strong and had bite - it did, after all, use peppermint - the Spearmint variety is smooth and has less bite. This being said, we most definitely prefer the Spearmint over the original -- and we also think that the mainstream appeal of this variety is better than the Peppermint. Beyond the flavor, there's the packaging which, like the original, has a clean, modern style that is pleasing to the eye. Overall, a job well done by Metromint.
