IceGloo Cool Acerola (Cherry) Tic Tacs

From Germany hails this igloo shaped container of Acerola Cherry flavoured Tic Tacs. These contain no sugar, and are enriched with Vitamin C and Xylitol.

These little things come in an igloo shaped container, and have a picture of an igloo on the front as well, this is because these are meant to leave a cool taste in your mouth as well as giving fresh breath. They do look nice from the outside, the box is red coloured making the tic tacs look red, though in actuality they’re white.

They’re a little bigger than ordinary tic tacs as well, though they’re flatter, and you get around 30 in the container. The problem lies with the cherry taste.

Now granted I’m not too knowledgeable with different types of cherries, but as far as I’m concerned these are peach flavoured. I’ve eaten cherries and peaches in my time, and cherry and peach flavoured sweets, and this is definitely peach. It’s not a problem per se, because it’s a nice flavour, but I’m not sure how they came up with cherry for this.

Still, it’s not bad. Tic Tacs are fairly unremarkable anyway, but these freshened my breath and I smelled like delicious peaches, so that was good. The box is nice as well, so overall I’m fairly pleased with these.

Hmmm…those look interesting. There are far too few mints and gums available in the US that do not utilize xylitol to its potential. Most gum here includes both xylitol and the unhealthy sweeteners like aspartame and such.

It’s the same here as well. Most gum is sugar free unless it’s bubble gum, but the ones that contain Xylitol are usually twice as expensive and are marketed towards professionals. I guess people who aren’t professional workers should be expected to have bad teeth, though that is one of the British archetypes…
