Ice Breakers Breath Mints
I love sugar free breath mints. There's no reason for a breath mint to have sugar in it. The ice breakers line are really great - they are like a liquid burst of flavor!
I try just about every sugar free breath mint I can get my hands on. They come in handy in many different situations. The ice breakers come in 3 different flavors that I've seen - cinnamon, blue mint and green mint. Cinnamon is my favorite.
In essence these are little "gel balls" of the appropriate color, maybe the size of a smallish pearl or a BB. You drop one in your mouth and it seems tame at first - until the outer layer melts off. Then you get this intense burst of flavor that fills your mouth. It's really neat! I gave one to my boyfriend without warning him what was going to happen, and it was funny to watch him react. It's a real flavor burst.
You get 30 balls in a small plastic case, and I have these stashed in various spots - my purse, the kitchen, the glove compartment of my car, etc. Your breath is one of the first things a person notices about you, and you want it to be a good impression. With 0 calories, 0 sodium, 0 fat, and 0 carbs, plus only a tiny bit of sucralose used as the sweetener, this is pretty much the perfect mint.
I do have to comment on something funny. It says on the package: "Avoid contact with eyes or irritation may result". Wait - you're telling me that sticking gel balls into your eyeballs might bother your eyes?? What will they think up next, to warn us about :)
