Insidious flavor crystals

Edit: I posted this a few days ago, but accidentally posted it private. So I'm reposting it publicly because of the valuable information it contains.

I'm old enough to remember when Certs first put those "flavor crystals" or whatever they call them into their breath mints.

I didn't really think much about it, but apparently that was a really big thing. It must have made a huge difference in sales over the years, because, have you noticed how flavor crystals are showing up now in all kinds of products? Like...

My shaving gel?

And deodorant?

Coincidence? I'm thinkin', no. I'm just bringing this to your attention because we should all be aware of whatever "marketing" scheme is occurring here.
