    Wink MTG, now in a non-bacon grease mixed with sulfur scent!

    This made me chuckle.

    MTG now comes in a scent that is NOT bacon grease and sulfur. Whoda thunk?

    And now, my life is complete...

    LOL, actually, thanks for sharing this. I hadn't seen it yet. I wonder what the 'herbal scent' smells like?

    I'd imagine just about anything is better than the "original" scent... LOL!

    Has anyone actually smelled it yet? Because the ingredient list suggests that it's going to smell roughly the same as original MTG. It's still full of sulfur and cade oil, and it's the cade oil that gives MTG that characteristic BBQ grease smell. They haven't listed anything new in the ingredients.

    In other words, I wonder if "with herbal scent" is just a marketing ploy to say "Cade oil is technically an herbal scent since it's derived from juniper oil. So just enjoy the bacon grease smell already because it's herbal!"

    I checked it out at a trade show. Think sulphur and bacon mixed with potpourri. I wasn't surprised and I'm not saying its a bad thing, but the stuff that makes it smell so bad is the stuff that makes it work so they can't really get rid of the smell.

    My worry is that it's not herbal instead of pig roasting on a burned tire smell.. but herbal AND pig-tire-roast smell! Ick!

    Depending on the herbs, could smell like a GOOD bbq for once! Hmmm... camp cook outs anyone?
