    One thing I really dread about any possible TEOTWAWKI event: both cocoa and cinnamon are tropical. It would be a long time before I saw those again, minus what I have stocked. I do need to get more mint though, my pant caught a disease and I had to sterilize it.

    They got chocolate in Mx so it's just a matter of getting to it.

    Loved going out under the Swamp Cooler drip and picking mint for the ice tea, and sometimes to chew on.
    Once on safari in deepest darkest Afganistan we ran out of Gin, and were compelled to survive on food and water for several days.

    I really like the smell of the mint plants and often brush my hand across the leaves to further enhance the smell.
    In many locals mint spreads wildly and is hard to stop if it "gets away".

    Me too, I have a patch growing along the stream at the BOL, in a patch. Like to encourage it to spread.
