Heyhey, it’s #TicTacTuesday! The 101st variety added to the Tic Tac collection at VOCOMOTION Studios: Merry Elf Mix. I actually found these at 7-Eleven near my house, and this is why it’s good to sometimes treat your kids to Slurpees. I never find any new Tic Tacs at 7-Eleven, so this is pretty cool and unexpected. They usually only have Freshmint and Orange (yawn).
At first glance, this is just a seasonal mix they keep churning out. But take a look at what flavors are included, you’ll see something new: Cranberry. They have not released a cranberry flavor in the US, so this is a first. It’s a reallllly tasty flavor and I wish they would release it on its own. It’s not too tart and has a good authentic cranberry flavor. The color of the cranberry candies are a bit more orange than deep red. I don’t care for the artificial and chemical taste of the “white lime” (uh what is that?) and green apple. Plus, the mix of those three flavors makes no sense, except for the colors.
Honorable mention for the week: Thanks for Tara Kellerman and Becky Ellis for sending me Tic Tacs they found in their travels. While they’re not new to my collection, I still appreciate you thinking of me! You rock!
