Wonders of the Web

So, my mother favors a kind of mint that has anise in it. She was out here visiting last year and spotted them in a New Seasons market and was thrilled. I bought her a case of them for Christmas last year.

Went back to get some more this year and they were gone. I couldn't remember the name, either. But with Google, if you have enough clues: mints-anise-pastilles, you can track things down, and since I knew what the package looked like, I found them.

Got to be impressed with that if you came of age before the instant information generation. 

The mints, by the way, are vile-tasting things if you aren't a fan of licorice ...
