I found a new Mentos product on the store shelve this week called Mentos Power Kiss. I think it's been available in other parts of the world for a while but just now made its way to Israel. Still I could not find any online English reviews for this product I decided to give it a try and write a review of my own.
There were three flavors to choose from Peppermint,Spearmint and Orange-Mint. Lately I've been on a real "citrus flavors" kick so I decided to try the orange-mint one.
They are basically a small, flat, round, white "breath-freshener". Kind of a competitor to the popular tic-tac. They look like little pills and seem to be made of a "powder". The Mentos Power Kiss doesn't have that candy like coating a tic-tac has.Because of the photo on the packaging I was expecting it to be orange in color but it was white and not orange.
As soon as I put it in my mouth I tasted a strong but pleasant orange flavor. The mint was not the leading flavor but came in as the secondary taste.
The Mentos Power Kiss dissolved quickly and easily the way a dissolvable medicinal tablet would dissolve easily under your tongue.
I don’t think it lasted more than a minute and a half. Way shorter than a tic-tac normally lasts me.
I enjoyed the "candy" but I can't say that my mouth felt refreshed after it was gone. I would need quite a few of them to get that clean fresh feeling I was looking for. Maybe the Peppermint and Spearmint ones "work better" as breath-fresheners but this orange one did not live up to my expectations on that front.I though the packaging was cool and convenient. The breath mints come in a small, sleek, black, hard plastic package that has a fun little dispenser type mechanism to it. First give it a little shake then push the colored (in this case orange) "button" on one end of the container and out comes your individual candy on a little "tongue dispenser" on the other end of the package.
Bottom Line: Mentos Power Kiss Sugar-Free Orange-Mints were enjoyable enough but I do not think it’s a good breath freshener. Still it was a perfectly fine orange flavored sugar free "dissolvable" candy to pop in my mouth for the minute or so that it lasted.
