Spearmint Tic Tacs.................
These little beauties have been a firm favourite of mine for years and the Spearmint flavour is absolutely the best. For around 45pence per pot you get a good amount of the small little capsule like mints and I would say they are far better than any other mints going.
The fact that they come in such a handy little box is really good as the lid just pops open and closes easily and keeps ut any unwanted sand and dust that always seems to be lurking at the bottom of my bag. When I have a packet of Polo's for example I always have to check that there is no dust that easily finds its way into a open tube where as these say nice and sealed.
The spearmint ones are easily distinguishable from the others as the transparent turquoise colouring of the box really sets it apart. You get 18 grams of mints in a box but I would say you get well over 50 mints although I have never actually counted them. I do confess to just tipping up the box against my mouth so I tend not to offer them around too much!
The spearmint tic tacs themselves look just like the peppermint flavour ones and have no colour difference in the mints themselves but the taste in my opinion is far superior. They really freshen your breath and taste nice and sweet at the same time and this is why I prefer the spearmint ones as they taste less like tooth paste than the peppermint ones. The mints are rather hard although can be crunched easily and I will often put more than one in my mouth at any one time and this is not too overpowering.
The spearmint ones have 2 calories per mint and no fat but I am sure I remember the advert saying that they were only 1 calorie per mint but this may well have been for the peppermint variety. However they are truely tasty and whilst I was pregnant I must have eaten a ton of them as this was my only craving and I was surprised I still managed to put on so much weight.
I can only give these little mints a top score because I love them so much and a 5 out of 5 star rating is well apt. A high recommendation from me! Yum.
Thanks for reading!
