Beano-Mints

A multi-purpose solution to orifice stench

Somewhere early on I was programmed with the idea of killing birds - not just one, but two! I'm sure as a young boy I threw stones at birds, but I've yet to kill even one. Though there was that time with the wrist-rocket, the marble, and the chicken on my neighbor's fence... still feel bad about that one. Anyway - I'd like to see a "Beano-Mint" on the counter at restaurants. I think the "two birds with one stone" purpose(s) are self evident. Problem is, Beano is consumed prior to a meal, and the mint after, oftentimes with the intent of not only curing bad breath, but getting rid of remaining flavors. Solutions?

BTW - don't bother contacting Beano with this one - I did that, and they declined, stating that Beano could not be set out where children could eat it like candy.

       Welcome to the Halfbakery, [RubyBlue]!   

       As to the idea - it took some searching to discover that Beano is not merely a popular children's comic, but also a formulation to... anyway, what is it with you people and your digestive tracts?   

       I was recently made aware (on this very forum) of a type of American biscuit called "Happy Colon". Your entire nation appears to revolve around its anus...

       Hahaha! So true! My digestive tract suffers from the enjoyment of too many food choices from many cultures around the world - one of the MANY benefits of living in "My Nation". Curious - what gave away my "location"?

       WP says that Beano didn't come into existence 'til 1990: odd, I've always thought of it as a classic remedy.

       Welcome to the Halfbakery, [RubyBlue], but anything even remotely concerned with the of killing birds attracts this bone from me. [-] //but I've yet to kill even one// implies that you are still trying. Don't.

       ^ perhaps, but they make quite a bit of noise when you try to eat them live.   

       Hey [MB], the company that makes Happy Colon cookies also produces "Powerflax Hi-Performance" cookies.

       Hi [RubyBlue]. I gave you a bun to even out the score. It's a good halfbaked try at something! I don't use Beano, but I think you put some thought into this.   

       Also, let in be known that *we* (our nation) write the date backwards and drive on the wrong side of the road...

       //Curious - what gave away my "location"?// The idea.   

       And, [FT], what in gods' names do "Powerflax Hi- Performance" cookies do?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 25 2013
  

       Well... there's no mention of activities, sports, or increased energy on the box.

       Breath freshener, some galactosidases... put in some probiotics for the rumbly-tummy digestion problems, and you'd have a triple.

       This is exactly true. His name is Barack Obama.

       //This is exactly true. His name is Barack Obama.// Hang on a second. I may not have kept up with American politics, but I'm lining Barack Obama up alongside Ronnie Reagan and George W. Bush and I'm seeing a distinct improvement. Or is reason and intelligence still viewed with suspicion in the colonies?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 26 2013
  

       //Barack Obama// Stephen Harper actually, though the object of your indigestion, Max, is actually Russian in origin.
