I first tried these mints when i was twelve years old and my best friend at the time had a packet and offered me one. On first impression's i wasn't too keen as they were too minty and hard to bite. So i didn't bother with them for several years until the start of 2012 when i fell pregnant and had this insane craving for mints. So on my next trip to the shop i had a look at their chewing gum and mint section and i came across these which of course were familiar and i knew how minty they were so i thought i'd give them a try.
These mints are wrapped in a white and green paper wrapper with the trebor brand name on a red star. There is other varieties however such as spearmint which has a white and blue paper wrapper, so have a look below trebor and the red star as it will say peppermint or spearmint. There is a roughly 10 mints in each packet. They are white and about an inch in size and circular. The smell isn't too strong when opening the packet.
Trying the product
When trying these mints you will either love them or hate them. As they are incredibly strong and the mint is very overpowering and distorts the taste of anything you eat or drink for quite a while after. They are very hard to bite and can be quite sharp and harsh on the teeth and gums. So i'd advise sucking on them to soften them or until they dissolve completely. With that said it can become quite an addiction crunching away at them.

These mints have gotten quite costly over the years and can be as much as 65p a packet. For better value i'd look in supermarkets as i've found myself getting 6 packets for £1.89 or 4 packets for £1.00.
i'd definitely recommend these to anyone friends and family. In my opinion these are the best mints there is, they certainly helped my cravings and i'm still eating them since having my baby. They are everything i'd expect from a mint. The size of the packets are handy and have more than enough mints in them for the whole day. However i've developed a little addiction to these mints and i can go through as many as three packets a day. I don't see me stopping buying these mints any time soon.
Summary: Great mints but can become very addictive.
