Taste test: These candies from Nigeria had mostly black exteriors with some stripes of white, shaped like a typeset letter O (tall, rather than round, with the center of the O recessed from the letter part, but not hollow). The taste was a very strong menthol, quite intense. The bag came with 50 individually wrapped pieces, and since I couldn't even eat one whole piece, I had to share them! Most people refused to try, but those who did all found the flavor far too intense.

I can't say that I wasn't warned! When I bought the bag of 50 pieces, the store's proprietor gave me a look to say "Do you really want to buy these?" and offered a free one to try from the bin of individual pieces at the register. It was pretty shocking, but since this would become the first-ever snack we've reviewed from Nigeria, I chose to buy the bag anyway.

Aroma: Very mild, but smells like a menthol cough drop.
