Tic Tac is a brand of small, hard mints that were first introduced in 1969 by the Italian candymaker Ferrero. The candy was originally called Refreshing Mints, but consumers identified the mint with the tic tac sound of shaking the mints in the container. Tic Tacs are available in over 100 countries and in a variety of different flavors. Besides the original Orange and Fresh Mint flavors, there is Pink Grapefruit, Tangerine and most recently Popcorn flavor. ~Two hours of Tic Tac freshness in less than two calories.
