Little Mints again

About two months ago I posted about Junior Mints
We had been wondering about the origin of the name. 'Senior Mint' and larger 'Peppermint Patties' were discussed.

I was reading an article about the history of candy concessions in Slate today. At the end there is a quiz, one of the questions is as such:
7) What were Junior Mints (1949) named after?
    a) A larger, Peppermint Pattie-style candy called the Senior Mint.
...

This is either funny because someone had the very same question, or sad that we are not so original as we thought.
I vote that whoever came up with this quiz is obviously a comic genius!
