Heyhey, it’s #TicTacTuesday!! The 118th variety added to the Tic Tac collection: Around The World. This pack comes to us from Croatia, but through our source in Slovenia. At first glance, it might appear to be just another fruit-flavored mix, like Fruit Adventure or Emotions or Sorpredente, but we have an unprecedented SIX flavors in this mix and they’re all really tasty.
The first thing you might notice is that if you put these three packs together, it forms a world map on the labels. I could see them selling these three as a set in airports. Each candy has an icon printed on it, representing a different world culture: horseshoe (US??), djembe drum (Africa), kangaroo (Australia), parthenon (Greece), maracas (Mexico), and pagoda (Asia). I’m just guessing on the cultures there. They aren’t consistently printed on each flavor, meaning each candy has a random icon. They aren’t tied together icon+flavor.
The fruit flavors are very good and represent, in my opinion, the best and most natural of the fruit flavors Tic Tacs makes. I’m happy any time a mix includes cranberry, since it’s not yet been made available on its own. I really dig that flavor and I’m hoping maybe some Autumn/Thanksgiving they release it alone. There is also a disclaimer written on the back, in Croatian, that says you must listen to Draft Punk while eating these candies. Hey, it’s not my rule.
If you’re looking for a nice all-around fruit mix, Around The World is your destination for yummy.
