Tic Tac Gum

Stop The Presses! Tic Tac Gum is A New, Real Thing! (Video)

Tic Tac has announced a whole new product line … of gum! If you love those little mints, but feel like they may not last long enough to keep bad breath at bay, this is the solution.

Delish reports that Tic Tac is now offering its own version of crunchy-coated gum. The flavors come in Cool Watermelon, Freshmint and Spearmint.

The announcement came in video fashion, and it's actually quite fun to watch. It features 7,000 packs of Tic Tacs, and I feel bad for whomever had to count them.

While the gum won't be hitting store shelves in the U.S. until January 2018 (weird timing for a watermelon flavor), you can already find it in Italy. You can also find a licorice mint flavor, if that's your thing. If you do happen to be over that way, see if you can find some of those Simpsons-inspired flavors that debuted in Italy (and other parts of Europe) in October 2016.

What we do have here are a few new Tic Tac flavors to keep us satisfied. Tic Tac has a new line of "Mixers," which feature changing flavors. For example, for the Cherry Cola flavor, you'll taste cherry, then cola. There are Cherry to Cola and the Peach to Lemonade flavors currently available. Both very summery!

The classic mint and orange flavors are pretty much always available. There's a Fruit Adventure flavor that's also kind of fun for summer. It features four different fruity flavors in one little Tic Tac box. Try this one or Strawberry Fields if you're looking for something a little different. If you're more into classic mints, there's also a Wintergreen and Spearmint Mix.

On a side note, Tic Tac is partnering with the "Despicable Me" folks to offer up a sweepstakes for a chance to win a free trip to Hawaii. The promotion runs through May, June and July and ends on August 3. During that period, all you have to do to enter the sweepstakes is go to www.tictacusa.com, navigate to the Despicable Me 3 Sweepstakes tab, and then click the "Go Enter" button at the bottom of the page. You need to create a sign-in and fill out a form with your information. Then, voila! You're entered!

You have to be 18 or older to enter and it's a random drawing. There's a grand prize trip to Hawaii and even extra spending cash. This news is sweet enough to make you forget that you have to wait until January for the Tic Tac gum, wouldn't you agree?
