To suck or not to suck

KC Diana dinner mints
Dinner mints are small mint flavoured sweets usually served at the end of meals...usually. Today in Trinidad, dinner mints are used for much more than sucking. Its:

  • served with your bill at restaurants
  • for sale in some offices
  • used to lure tips at bars
  • used to somehow apply the love writings to your life
  • used during insulting someone for bad breath

Although being the second most sucked item in Trinidad and Tobago, dinner mints are not usually a topic for conversation. The two major "players" in the dinner mints market are KC Confectionery and Diana.

If someone offers you a dinner mint, you should suck on it. You may appear to emit bad manners if you refuse.

On my last dinner mint (Diana), my text comment was "Look into my eyes" and my lucky numbers were 7, 8, 21, 23, 26 and 28.
