Heyhey, it’s #TicTacTuesday (but this time on a Wednesday)! The 115th variety added to the Tic Tac collection: Día de Muertos Menta Intensa. These specially-branded packs, sold only in Mexico as a limited edition during the month of October, were rather difficult to track down. I had a couple different people in Mexico searching and finally was able to actually procure them from someone in Texas (no doubt smuggled across the border, much to our president’s chagrin…but I digress).
Many of these candies have little skull faces printed on them, which is a common theme on Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Not every candy in the pack has the printing, which seems weird. The mint flavor and color are pretty much identical to Arctic Rush. It’s a powerfully strong mint flavor but still with that anise hit at the front, similar to the classic Freshmint (white). If you can’t find these, just get some Mint Evolution, which are available at Walgreen’s fairly widely in the US. Pretty much the same thing.
