Ginger Altoid Conspiracy

Apparently Callard & Bowser-Suchard, a subsidiary of Kraft Foods, which is owned by Philip Morris International, whose parent company is Altria Group, Inc. is now making a rare form of Altoid mint, out of ginger. I have the latest issue of ‘The Week’ which has an ad on the back page pronouncing ‘Now available at Altoids.com’. A quick browser visit later and there is no link to purchasing this item. I did a Google search and found a bulletin board site that apparently is made up of Altoid freaks, who contacted Callard & Bowser and got the response that the best bet is to seek out the Ginger Altoids on ebay. Perhaps this is a marketing gimmick for ebay by the Altria Group. Who knows?
