Default Mint

As you know, there are Life Savers candies that come in may flavors, including mint. Years ago I met some people who referred to any piece of Life Savers candy as "a mint," even if it's favor was cherry.

And today, I just received my order of Dr. John's sugar-free candy mints that come in two flavors called Peppermint Pop and Tangy Melon.

I'm wondering if I should email them. This usages it not in the dictionary.
