This POLO TRICK is my pocket version to the Chinese Linking Rings which I perform here at a wedding but can also be used as a street magic trick. What is strong with this version is the linking happens in the hands of the marks and they can immediately inspect the mints and keep them.
This version of the Linking Polo Mints is my own method. It is basically an updated version of the street magic version that I created last year but with a few changes that I feel help improve it all round. I hope you like it. I think it’s a “cool” trick!!!!
I first noticed a very unusual property of the polo mint that helps to make this trick possible. Many years went by before I remembered this little secret and created the final effect.
DID YOU KNOW : Polo mints were developed by Rowntree’s in 1939, similar to the US confectionary Life Savers and the British Navy Sweets but their introduction to the market was delayed until 1947 by the onset of the Second World War. Polo is still Britain’s best-selling mint brand with approximately 38 million mints produced every day and an average of one hundred and fifty Polos eaten every second.
