OK, Altoid tin recon lovers, the signups are up here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77695.0

There's only a week to sign up, so don't delay. And start eating up those Altoids!!

 Grin

Oops, I notice a rather lengthy typo here... that's supposed to read, "And start pouring those peppermint Altoids into plastic baggies and mailing them to Writer78!"  Gotta watch for those pesky typos, racky!    Tongue

LMAO!  This sounds just like me.  Once I get started eating them, I can't stop.  I'd love to sign up for this swap, but since I'd have to get it through my parents (I'm only fifteen), I'm gonna not do this one, and probably do the muppets/Jim Henson one happening in March.  I think since they know how much I love the muppets they'll be okay with it.  I also have a lot more ideas for that one, and I feel like I would flunk out in this one, and disappoint my partner! Ah well... maybe in a Round Two...

Woohoo!  Sign-ups early!  I am so excited  Smiley

You might want to mention on the sign-ups that small tins equivalent to Altoid tins are welcome, as well.  I know that was a big thing on our Altoid swap last time.  We mention it on this thread, but just in case they aren't as curious (get it?  curious!  LOL) as us...and addicted to this thread.

I remember that when I was in the Lake District, there were a lot of very pepperminty candies available, including something that was basically a peppermint & sugar candy bar-type thing.   But I don't remember seeing Altoids specifically.

I just couldn't stop smiling when I saw Nushy's earlier post about the *BNP (triple yuck) from the UK.


 But altoid tins? The first I heard of them was here, on Craftster! You Americans....
.....
nushy xx

PS Eva, have you noticed a trend? I mean, this must be the third thread that we've taken over, talking about US/UK stuff...!
*British National Party.  Old white rascist men. Political party who still manage to get an unnerving amount of votes. Old white rascist men.

Nushy, I totally agree with you and think they should be put on island, then remembered we already are on one- with them Sad Can you believe the result of that court case?........... anyway... back to the tins:

I know you said you haven't heard of the 'Fisherman's Friend' earlier but they are available in any good chemists and seem to be the same size as the Altoid tin. I have a strong feeling from what everyone here says that they export these out as the Altoids brand in the states. Hmmm, maybe Fishermen aren't good marketing. Try a couple of high-street chemists and they ought to have it as OAP's seem to like them.

Sure, Superdrug ought to have them or even a dedicated chemists like Pearls. Just mind you don't eat them without breathing in first, they're very.... pungent, kind of like swallowing a pill made of Vicks Inhaler.

We have Fisherman's Friend here - they're sold in small paper packets.  I read on the Altoids site that they were formed in England by Smith and Company and came to the US in the 1920s or so.  Maybe they just weren't as popular in the UK and died out there, living on in America?   Huh

Wouldn't be the first great import we "stole" - like HUGH LAURIE!!!!   Tongue
