Yesterday girlfriend noticed my chocolate mint doesn't smell like chocolate at all, and I plucked a few leaves off and she was right, it smells like a skunk. Is that normal?

What's the normal size for a mint leaf? Mine seem quite small compared to the first ones that grew...

I think leaf size gets somewhat larger depending on the age of the plant. may have something to do with the size of the root system. Summer leaves are much bigger too.
