hello fellow magicians i am a big fan of penguin, but recently i have heard news from other forums saying that penguin magics magic mints were a piroted version of colin breeses linking life savers, now i have read maxwells explination for this saying that penguin made an agreement with colin but im not so sure. on this other forum (magic cafe) there was a post that colin made saying that penguin did in fact rip him off and that he would never agrre with them. this saddens me very much and i would just like to know if i a heard is true. :cry:

there is another magic site that i know, which for reasons related to forum rules shall remain nameless.
this site claims to be the only distributor of linking lifesavers, or whatever. This is a subject that has been a source of great confusion, but i think that this has been sorted out.

''Hi Guys,

Magic Mints is a high-quality authorized version of Colin Gilbert's Linking Lifesavers. Colin has given us his blessing to sell Magic Mints and to use his name in association with the product.

Our job is to get you more magic for your money. We love it when we get the chance to give you THREE TIMES THE BUYING POWER!

I recommend picking up Magic Mints. It's a great little effect to have in your pocket for the perfect moment.

This issue has already been done to death, and still nobody knows for sure one way or the other. Do a search if you're hungry for more debate on it.

With that I leave you with a locked topic!
