I started another thread elsewhere on the topic, but here seems like a good fit... do you *really* have musk-flavored Life Savers in Australia? Not musk as in muskmelon, but musk as in muskrat.

I read it on the internet, so I don't know why I'm doubting the veracity of this claim. But the gag reflex is strong enough to make me ask.

Fiberbabe - there's two potential paths here - and one of them I DEFINITELY don't want to go down on.

Yes we have musk flavoured Life Savers - the candy with the hole!

Musk is a very popular flavouring for sweets here and I am extremely surprised to think you'd be grossed out by it! Life without musk Life Savers or musksticks jest wouldn't be the same!!

I'll just remind you that I characterized it as "musk as in muskrat", not "musk as in Muskrat Love". [one eyebrow up-e]

Does anyone know if they actually have muskrats in Australia? I get the idea that they were a North American phenomenon, and introduced in Europe and Asia... [confused]
