I received this tin a while ago. I use them to freshen my breath. They are great for after coffee when you don't have a toothbrush with you. They taste like a more gentle, sweeter Altoid. They are quite strong and good.
They come in a 1.25 oz (35 g) tin. It opens up fairly easily, but sometimes it sticks.
Each mint has 5 calories in it, 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of total carbohydrate. There are pieces of real mint in each mint.
In fact, after the breath mint dissolves in my mouth, I am often left with a little gift in my mouth that I have to spit out. I don't like that part. It is the only part of the mint that I would do away with or improve.
The mint lasts 4 minutes in my mouth without chewing (It was very hard not to chomp on it!). I feel a cooling sensation in my mouth, the back of my throat and in my nose. I estimate my breath smells minty for around an hour.
The mints are manufactured by Vermints They use organic ingredients in the mints they make. The Burt's Bees mints are no different. The ingredients include: organic crystallized cane juice, organic tapioca syrup, natural peppermint oil, organic mint leaves, organic maple syrup, agar, gum traganth and spring water.
