Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Ferrero Tic Tac Winter Warmer Confirmed sighting: Ferrero Tic Tac Winter Warmer
Posted: 21:26 Fri 21-Oct-2005. Price: 35p. Location: Esso Garage, Paisley. Nutritional unusualness: 2 kcal per tic, 2kcal per tac.
"SuperStarLynne" reports: These Limited Edition Winter Warmer Tic Tacs are cinnamon flavoured, they are quite strong but very nice. The only disappointing thing is that the plastic box is red, but the Tic Tacs are white, it would have been much better if the sweets were actually red.

...First-time spotter "SuperStarLynne" seems to be referring to the red cinnamon variety available (I think) in the US - while, in other potentially-importable impertinence, "William Gardner" at last located the Smoothie Mix Skittles previously recommended here going for $1 a bag on Venice Beach, Los Angeles, sighing: The pastel orange Smoothie Mix contains five flavours of non-equal proportion - Lemon Berry, Mixed Berry, Peach Pear, Orange Mango, and Strawberry Banana. Taking a "juice/ smoothie bar" approach to confectionery, Skittles have disappointed this tourist. The flavours have little variety within taste, mainly as there is a "candyfloss" overtone to each one, which results in one having a large handful regardless of what flavours. Reminds me of Starburst's Tropical range, these could grow on you but seem to be a "buy them once a year" flavour variety. With regards to colour, the Skittles are more of a pastel hue than Skittles' usual vivid array, which brings a certain amount of naturalness to them, but also makes them look like they've been left in the sun for too long.

Comment: Are you utterly CRAZY?

it would have been much better if the sweets were actually red

Are you a child? Why would you WANT them to be red? I admit, colour plays an important roles in the appreciation of food.

But I would prefer white tic tacs to Conchineal coated ones, made from crushed beetle shells!

So, artificial colours out, we already have too many artificial flavours.

Comment: Can you actually confirm that Tic Tac use real Conchineal in the US Cinnamon Tic Tacs?

Comment: I love crushed beetle shells. So much nature in every bite. Seriously there's worse stuff going on in the food world.

Anyways I can't find cinnamon tic tacs and my Canadian imports are running low. It's time to take up chewing gum so I can revel in Dentyne's cinnamonny goodness.

Comment: NEWS!

Extra Strong Tic Tacs and Orange Tic Tacs are being discontinued (although the Orange+-Lime ones will still be produced). They're also launching a Tropical variety - I tasted some today (promotional packs straight from the factory, without any labelling - the EXCITEMENT), and they're pretty nice - although *exactly* how you would expect them to (like the Orange ones, but with Tropical flavouring). They're white, rather than yellow, which I think misses a trick a bit.

Should be out soon.
