  • The Tic Tac® mints in my store are in a larger box than I remember. What gives?

    We recently changed the size of the box for our Tic Tac® mints from a 5/8 oz. package to a 1 oz. package. Between 2009 and 2010, we increased the size of the package from 5/8 oz. to 1 oz. and labeled the larger size as a BIG PACK. Once we discontinued the 5/8 oz. package, we removed the BIG PACK flag from the 1 oz. package.  


  • I can't find my favorite flavor anymore! Where is it?

    To keep our product line up interesting and give consumers innovative, new flavors like Fruit Adventure and Strawberry Fields, we periodically have to discontinue other flavors. We recently discontinued Spearmint, Cinnamon, and Melon Mango, so these flavors are no longer available in the U.S.


  • But what about Pink Grapefruit and Holiday Twist? I see it only once a year….

    Pink Grapefruit is a limited edition flavor that is only available from August through October to show the brand's support for cancer awareness. It is only sold in displays, so once the displays are empty, you'll have to wait until next year to buy it again! Holiday Twist is also a limited edition flavor that is only available during the holidays in November and December.


  • Can I recycle the Tic Tac® packaging?

    The box in which Tic Tac® mints are packaged is made of polypropylene, a flexible plastic that is recyclable. We encourage consumers to be green and create a positive impact on the environment. Recycling the empty boxes is a step in the right direction for a better environment.


  • The Nutrition Facts for Tic Tac mints state that there are 0 grams of sugar per serving. Does this mean that they are sugar free?

    Tic Tac® mints do contain sugar as listed in the ingredient statement. However, since the amount of sugar per serving (1 mint) is less than 0.5 grams, FDA labeling requirements permit the Nutrition Facts to state that there are 0 grams of sugar per serving.
