Hiya "Cinnamon"


This treat really is on the border for me. I'm not really sure if it can be called a candy at all, it's almost like it's strictly a breath freshening implement without any intent on having fun. It would be like me reviewing breath strips or toothpaste, they only serve the function of freshening breath. Then I take a look at the package. What you can't see is that lovely young lady on the package of mints is not just your silly standard package spokeswoman. She's much more than that.

With a twist of the wrist that nice lady points and gives you the classic "Isaac" from Love Boat salute. If you twist your wrist as you say the name of the treat then it's fun for all I tell you. I’ve never seen a gimmick like this on a tube of toothpaste or breath strips. So this tells me that maybe they are going in more of the “candy” route.

The treat itself though (as mentioned) looks kind of creepy, like a pill. Basically, it's a little round caplet filled with super cinnamon flavoured goo. I believe the caplet is flavoured as well but not as strongly as the stuff inside. The breath freshening part of it is also a little weak as far as how long it lasts. I think garlic filled pizza would basically render these useless.

Breath mints are a challenge for me to review. In some ways they are candy, but in other ways they’re a medical tool. The only reason these even made it to this site is the fact that the lady on the package is so darn cool.
