There's something about fake orange flavour that I just can't get enough of. I think it reminds me of Tang, and what could be cooler than the drink that astronauts drank. To add to this review, I noticed that the package said instant hydration so I'm eating this treat while being slightly thirsty.

The mint flavour in these is pretty strange; it's not as much mint as it is just a cool feeling in your mouth. So basically eating one of these is like eating a mentholated orange. Sure it sounds bad but... Well to be honest the orange is ok, the cool feeling I could live without. It's slow acting too so at first I didn't notice it, but as this little treat dissolves in my mouth my sinuses are getting cooler and cooler.

I guess these mints/candies are really there to serve a purpose more than just be a treat. Maybe if you're making a speech and your mouth gets dry. I'd say a speech because I'm pretty sure this is doing almost nothing to help my bad breath and keeping your distance might be a good idea.

A strange experience but not a great treat. And I'm still kind of thirsty.
