I'm guessing that the whole difference between these and other Tic Tacs is that they're supposed to be cold. The problem I have with the concept is that most of the regular Tic Tacs are already minty flavours, so they're already super cold. This is what prompted me to try the cherry flavoured Chills instead of the minty flavours. The thing is these weren't very cool at all, in fact I really didn't even get a hint of cold, let alone enough to call them chills.

The good news however is that they taste pretty good, in fact I've been carrying these things around with me for the last few days just in case a need a nice taste in my mouth. You'd be amazed how often you have a bad taste in your mouth for many different reasons. The cherry flavour of these little treats is fake, but it's pretty good. It taste not as much like real cherry as much as it tastes like perfect fake cherry. That may not make sense to everybody but I don't know how else to describe it.

These treats pretty much work as giant versions of their Tic Tac brother. They also have one of the same problems, stamina. Pretty much the minute these disappear (about 3 min) the flavour disappears with it. That's ok to wash a yucky flavour out, but if your bad breath is even slightly re-occurring you'll be popping the whole pack of these in no time.

Suck Time: about 3 min
