Tic Tacs are a favorite sweet treat from my youth that I love to share with my children. Why overload kids with candy when a 2 calorie tic tac will satisfy? I had my two little munchkins in mind when I made this tic tac purchase. It’s always good to have a pack of tic tacs in your purse; if you need to bribe your kids into behaving.
The flavors of Tic Tac fruit adventure are:
1)yellow: passionfruit or mango: It’s very sulfury and floral. It reminds me of a canned mango or overcooked tropical fruit. My kids will not eat this one.
2) orange: sweet orange: Like St. Joseph’s baby aspirin. It’s not a juicy or fresh orange. It’s very sweet like tang drink powder. My kids like this one.
3) green: apple: This apple candy is very sour and cooling. It’s a creamy, slightly pear like, juicy apple. There is a bit of menthol added to this candy to give the cooling and nasal clearing effect. My kids like it.
4) red: cherry: A medicinal cherry, like cough syrup. It’s sour and juicy, but there’s a bad aftertaste that lingers and reminds me of bathroom cleaner. This cherry candy is not a favorite, but my kids always like “red” flavor.
Can you pop them all in your mouth at one time and make fruit punch flavor? Nope. The passionfruit/mango flavor sticks out too much. Fruit punch can be made, though, by chewing the apple, orange and cherry flavor together.
The flavors are ordinary and could use some adjustments. Because of the passionfruit flavor, I’m considering that this product is marketed towards teens. It’s not well suited for children or adults, but we could share. My kids would eat all the orange and I would get all the yellow.
