Random Pony Thoughts About...Minty

Let's take a moment to consider a specific pony.
Various and sundry Mintys
What is it about Minty?  Why is she so popular?  Is it because she's green?  Because she's appeared in three of the four generations of MLP?  Because of her enthusiasm for socks?
G1 Minty.  Perhaps the least minty-Minty
There should certainly be more green ponies.  It actually irks me that one of the Mane 6 isn't green, which would have completed the rainbow.  All the Mintys are green, though, and it makes them stand out among all the pink, purple, and white ponies.  Green ponies often seem to be some of the most popular with collectors.
Nothing says Christmas like a pair of Mintys
G3 Minty is one of the few characters who's at all interesting, mainly due to her starring role in A Very Minty Christmas.  She gets as much character development in 30 minutes as any G3 pony gets in six-odd years of cartoons, back cards, and merchandising.
I'm just saying
Does anyone else think that when Hasbro designed G3 Minty they confused G1 Minty with Mint Dreams?  There's definitely more of a resemblance here, I'm just saying.
I swore I was going to stop with the Mane 6
Minty is like a potato chip.  You can't have just one.
