Tic Tac Creates Taste-Changing Mints For Millennials Who Can’t Commit To One Flavor

Tic-Tac-Mixers

A new pack of Tic Tacs is set to hit shelves in June. The new flavor, or flavors, will be called Tic Tac Mixers. They’re designed specifically to change tastes as it dissolves in consumers’ mouths. Y’know, for those who just can’t commit to one flavor.

Bloomberg reports, there are three specific reasons why the new Tic Tacs exist. The first is, obviously, is to freshen consumers’ breaths. The second, to have a “sweet, fruity moment.” The third, to provide consumers with…”an emotional rescue.”

Because we all buy Tic Tacs to escape, right?

The two new varieties of Tic Tac Mixers are Cherry Cola and Peach Lemonade.

New Summertime Tic Tacs Taste Like Rocket Popsicles

tictacs

For most people, orange Tic Tacs are enough. They’re fun, they’re fruity. They’re low calorie candies that also happen to be good for your breath. But say everyone’s favorite pill-shaped mint company decided to come out with a new flavor that’s equally as, if not more, kidult-friendly than “orange”? Yeah, can’t say we’d be mad.

New for summer, Tic Tacs is launching a “Summer Ice Pop” flavor, featuring a mixture of red cherry, white lime, and blue berry capsules. Finally we can relive the joy of childhood ice cream trucks without looking like total pedobears. To be available at convenience and grocery stores for $1.29 a box, for a limited time.

So Apparently, We’ve Been Using Tic Tac Containers All Wrong

Last week I learned that my ketchup cup usage was a lie, and now this week, I’m learning that Tic Tac box lids have a crevice built to catch exactly one mint?! What the hell were our parents teaching us — or not teaching us?!

It all started when I was driving my buddies home after a trip from an onion-heavy lunch and mints were absolutely necessary. I reached into my glove compartment, pulled out a box of Tic Tacs and proceeded to struggle to get just one Tic Tac out at a time (1st world problem).

Watching my struggle, one of my mates snagged the box out of my hand and patronizingly asked, “Damn fool, don’t you read the Internet?” He then proceeded to explain that each Tic Tac box has a crater built out that perfectly houses one Tic Tac mint. It looks a bit like this, and now I feel slightly dumb:

Most likely, I’ll still shake each box of Tic Tacs until either 1 mint or 20 of them come out. That’s just the type of backwards, ignorant life I’ve led up until now, and no amount of common sense will persuade me otherwise.

Tic Tac: Chill

Paradise Mint: Picture yourself rocking in a hammock between palm trees, the sun setting in the distance. When you pop a Paradise Mint Tic Tac Chill, you’ll enjoy a breezy sensation so cooling fresh and smooth, it’s simply chill.

Exotic Cherry: Deliciously different, Exotic cherry is no ordinary treat for your taste buds. Subtly cool with a touch of tangy cherry sweetness, it’s sure to soothe the senses. So sit back, relax, and savor the flavor. (Thx Cheaplander)

Tic Tac Chill

Tic Tac has unveiled a new sugar-free version of their iconic mint called Tic Tac Chill, centered around the hip mantra of “Cool. Calm. Mellow.” The new mints come in translucent red or blue packaging that has a sliding door on the front to go along with the classic pop-top. You can get them in Paradise Mint for “cooling, fresh and smooth” or Exotic Cherry for “a touch of tangy cherry sweetness that’s sure to soothe the senses.”
