I've had other soft peppermints often, they help my stomach when it's upset. I opened the lid and there was no aroma. I thought that strange. I took one out, still not even a hint of peppermint. Took a bite and the only thing I could taste was sugar. This is a sugar stick without flavor or smell. So disappointed.
I am disappointed. I have the flu and didn't want to drive to the store to pick up a thermometer so came to Amazon (like I do most of my shopping). Chose this one. I knew I would have to wait a few days before taking my temperature by ordering here but it was worth the effort of me trying to drag myself to the store. It arrived today and I tried EVERYTHING to turn it on. Even putting in new batteries, changing the batteries directions, pushing every button I could find since the booklet directions weren't clear on what button actually turns it on. It stayed dead no matter what I did. Packed it back up to get returned and will have a friend pick up a thermometer from a local store.
