Damn, really? Spearmint is considered the "green mint", and mint is the "blue" mint - the original mint, the mint that everyone loves, and knows.
Mint is AF, Tangiers Mint, Nakhla Mint, etc. Spearmint is the green Extra gum packet, it's I suppose sweeter? Maybe not.
It's really hard to describe the differences.
. Just taste the green pack of gum and the blue pack of gum, you will notice it. there's no way you can't notice it, they are two completely different flavors.
