Spearmint Tic Tacs
Advantages: Tasty, not too strong, great packaging
There are not many mints that I actually like as I find many far too strongly flavoured to the point where I feel like my mouth is burning. But I do quite like spearmint flavoured things and I recently spotted packets of spearmint flavoured tic tacs so decided to purchase a pack to keep in my handbag to act as a quick breath freshener when out and about.
Tic Tac's are made by Ferrero and come in small rectangular plastic containers. I paid £0.49 hufor a 18g pack of the tic tacs. This does seem a little expensive as the container is very small but you do get quite a few of the mints contained inside.
As stated the tic tacs come packaged in a small rectangular plastic pot which is a green transparent colour with a white flip top cap. There is a sticky label which goes over the cap which allows you to make sure that the mints have not been tampered with or opened previously to purchase. On the front of the label is the tic tac logo, it states that they are spearmint flavoured and has the slogan 'refreshing little lifts'. On the back of the label it states ingredients listings and nutritional information.
The spearmint tic tacs are very small with each only being around a centimetre in length. They are white in colour and have a smooth, sweet sugar coating. As soon as you flip open the cap of the container you can smell the spearmint flavour which is quite pleasant and appealing.
When you first pop one of the little tic tacs in your mouth I find that they initially taste quite sweet from the sugar coated outside but when this beings to melt the flavour of the mint begins to come through. The inside of the tic tacs are a little more chalky in consistency but not unpleasant and to say they are so tiny they do take a couple of minutes to fully dissolve. The spearmint flavour is very pleasant and make you feel like you have eaten a mint which is much larger in size as my breath is left feeling quite fresh.
Overall I really love these tiny mints, they are strong enough to freshen your mouth up without leaving you feeling the need to reach for a glass of water. They are also perfect for carrying around with you due to the design of the container that they come in. So all in all a perfect little mint!
Summary: Shake your tic tacs!
