In case you’re wondering. . .


If you feel a slight tickle in the back of your throat and decide to counter it ‘naturally’ and choose a clove of garlic (helps fight bacterial and viral infections)with some olive oil, it will probably help. However, if you happen to choose a really, really, big clove of garlic (1.0 inches by .5 inches) it will BURN going down your throat. And if you happen to take it on an empty stomach, it will BURN there too. And no matter how many peppermints you suck on for three hours afterwards, it will not completely get rid of that ‘odd’ feeling in your digestive system, nor the aftertaste (not to mention the heartburn). And then you have to wonder, was the nutritional benefits of garlic and olive oil countered by the amount of sugar in all of those peppermints?

  1. Thanks for the chuckle 🙂

  2. This pic made me do a double-take! It looks like the garlic is floating! Guess it will be a while before you are ready for Garlic Bread again? 😉
