Tic Tac silvers

It’s silly to single out one product as the dumbest. But Tic Tac Silvers surely gets a spot on the list. Itzza "specially formulated candy mint", individ wrapped in shiny foil, w/ a "sweet outer coating & a minty center". In other words, a Tic Tac in a fancy wrapper. They’re described as "perfect for entertaining and sharing w/ your guests". What, opening a container of Tic Tacs and shaking them out onto your guests’ palms isn’t enough? One of their selling points: they’re "perfect for decorating your home in a beautiful & tasteful manner". Cuz nothing says good taste like bits of foil on a tabletop. They come in 2 flavors: pepp & orange.

FIRST!!

This sound smore than a bit silly. If you want an individual serving mint, Andes are better.

Andes mintns are great! Not even on the same page as Tic Tacs.

Maybe when you're a mint that tiny, there's not much room for a high IQ.

You ever see that popcorn snack, comes in a black bag, called Smart Food?

I think this is probably a way Tic Tacs to break into the segment of the food service business that provides mints to diners on their way out the door.

They are perfect for those who are afraid of germs and not so perfect for those with big hands.

Yeah, those are about as appealing as those individually wrapped Jelly Belly I've seen.

I put out the orange silvers at the office. My coworkers love'em!

the orange silvers are getting hard to find lately. Maybe they are about to pull them off of the shelves. I had to go online to a candy distributor and buy them by the pound.

To anyone who says that these are silly, YOU HAVE NEVER EATEN ANY!

These are the greatest tic tacs ever made, and they may also be the greatest candy I have ever had.

Karen: Unfortunately, tic tac silvers have been discontinued. To complain about it, you can reach them at:
Tic tac USA, Inc.
600 Cottontail lane
Somerset, NJ 08873

Otherwise, IF you're lucky, you may be able to get some on ebay.
