Tic Tacs are something I keep in the bottom of my bag or in the car and being in a little resealable plastic tub makes them perfect as they do not become moist like some other brands.
Tic Tacs come in a variety of flavours including original mint, spearmint, lime & orange, cherry plus other limited edition flavours. I am writing a review about lime & orange as these are my favourites.
The packs can be bought individually or multipacks and weigh 18g each, the label is orange and green with a white plastic lid and clear body. The sweets are now back to being orange and green which I prefer to the previous all white as I can tell if I am about to eat an orange or lime sweet. Each sweet is the size and shape of a small pill and contains approx. 2 calories making them ideal even for the calorie counters.
I find these refreshing for car journeys where I have no drink or even at work so I can ensure my breath is fresh at all times. I find the lime can be a little sour but the more sweet orange is my favourite.
My only complaint would be the difficulty of getting the sweets out of the pack opening as they sometimes get stuck.
When it comes to tic tacs I simply love the little candy sweets and not only do I find some varieties to freshen my breath but also they are just so lovely and full of flavour and all at the same time low in calories etc!
I often buy a small plastic box of them and have pretty much tried all of the available flavours too over the years! One of my favourites is this flavour the orange and lime flavour tat I'm reviewing here for you now.
The see-through plastic oblong container holds 18g of the tic tacs and has a small flip-top lid to the top of it to which you shake the little sweets out of. On the front of the container we are told that they are 'Refreshing Little Lifts', Tic Tac, Lime & Orange and then on the back of the label ingredients and a nutritional chart is listed as is the weight of the product (as I have listed already) and contact details for Ferrero Uk Ltd are listed (the manufacturer of all Tic tac Products). Nice handy size this is and you get rather a few little oval shaped sweet in a container too.
The Tic Tacs:
Well some are orange and some are bright green in colour and all are really hard with a thick 'shell' on and white underneath and that shell contains all of the flavour so the orange ones taste of sweet and zesty orange and the green ones of slightly sour and zesty lime and both flavours are really refreshing and rather natural.
Hardish to chew on, eventually melt in the mouth I find the flavours of these simply lovely. Not too sweet but natural and they give a quick burst of flavours that invigorates me lightly however this particular flavour isn't particularly breath freshening though do moisten and add flavour to a mouth. Thumbs up for these, they're great!
