While not nearly as bad as zombie breath, a dogged mouth odour that lingers long after morning is one of the earliest and most reliable warning signs of lycanthropy so it comes as no surprise that breath-mint companies would clamour to cash in on the condition.
But whether you are a werewolf yourself or just friends with one, please beware of their supernatural claims there is no real silver bullet for werewolf breath here.
I received a box of these mints as a gift for review from an anonymous sender on the Dog Days moon, along with a note informing me that these so-called silver bullet mints could be used to cure lycanthropy – or at least the concomitant buccal conditions associated with it.
Now nobody wishes more than I do that any being could just bite a minty candy bullet to cure unwanted werewolf mutagens, but the science here does not support it.
Despite their grayish color, these mints contain absolutely no real edible silver whatsoever and while this may be good news for any werewolves who have unwittingly accepted such a mint from a friend, it renders this candy completely ineffective for full moon protection.
They do contain a certain amount of sucrose and artificial mint flavour to provide temporary relief from wolf breath during the dog days but the only kind of werewolf who would be sidelined by these mints is a diabetic one.
So go ahead and enjoy them. I’ll be the first to admit the reusable metal box is handy, and looks awesome, but don’t count on the mints to ward off a real werewolf, even if the werewolf is you. Especially if the werewolf is you. Review the many werewolf survival tips you’ll find here on SOS and at yourlupinelife.com instead.
