Ferrero Tic Tac Pink Grapefruit

Pink Grapefruit Tic Tacs

My older sister and I were big Tic Tac eaters when we were younger. We both liked the orange ones best, even though it was common knowledge that they actually made breath worse.

I first heard about these from a candy blog, but when I searched the Internet, I couldn't find it, so I can't remember which it was. Anyhow, they were released a while ago, but it takes some things a while to get to my town.

Pink Grapefruit Tic Tacs

They look like standard Tic Tacs, despite coming in a bigger box. At first, the taste is very similar to orange, but once a little of the coating is gone, the grapefruit notes really kick in. It's sour, a little bitter, and fairly authentic ("dry pink grapefruit juice" is listed in the ingredients). There's also a mintiness in the background, but I wouldn't choose these as a breath freshener.

The taste was very similar to grapefruit Jelly Belly jelly beans, or grapefruit e-ma, which also has a minty kick. The mintiness did remind me of a throat lozenge, but I still enjoyed these. They went over well at work, too.

Ooh, I've been looking all over for those!

I was wondering if they'd have that little minty addition. I know the mango melon ones I tried did ... not to good effect, but I had some Mint Pomelo mentos that weren't bad.

I love how glossy they look in your photo.

Thanks! I found them at Wal-Mart. I think the mint works better here than it would for the mango.
