When I first saw this package, I instantly thought about Tic Tacs. I figured that I was getting into a box of assorted fruity flavoured Tic Tacs and I was fairly excited. However the excitement died down a little after I ate the first one.

It was light blue and it was minty. I was disappointed probably because my favourite Tic Tac is orange so having my first experience with these being mint it wasn’t going well. Although I can’t really complain because it wasn’t a horrible mint, it just wasn’t what I expected. Next I figured a red one was in order. A little fruity at first, not bad then… Minty!

Well maybe not minty as much as mentholy. I eventually went through most of the flavours only to discover that you get a light fruity flavour followed by a menthol flavour that really sticks in your mouth. I’m not sure if this is a fair review since I had the idea of Tic Tacs on my mind when I tried them, maybe it an expectation of what to expect. However it does have pictures of fruit all over it, maybe that tipped me off too.

If anybody knows what this package says (if it even mentions mint) let me know, until then I’ll just sit here slightly disappointed.
