These mints work! I buy these for conferences, large meetings, my office, and to keep in candy dishes at home. Great for bad breath, coughs, or just keeping hunger at bay (not a good practice, but sometimes meetings run into the lunch hour).
This is a really large amount of mints, but they always seem to go fast.
4, not 5 stars because they have a weird packaging smell. The mints work great, but once you open the packaging (the large green bag, not the individual wrappers) put them into a ziploc bag or container because they will make your drawers/cabinets smell. Doesn't seem to be a problem when left in the open, just when confined. So strange. To be clear there is no reason to avoid purchasing them because of the smell. It may just be that I am sensitive to it, who knows. May Lifesavers can add a ziploc feature to the bag.
If you like wint-o-green lifesavers, and if you don't, why are you here anyway, then this is two big bags of something you like. As an Amazon Prime user, shipping is free, which makes this the cheap way to get your methyl salicylate fix.
I would not recommend consuming the bag's contents in one sitting. It's 40+ ounces of sugar, for one thing; and that much wintergreen is not good for you. In light of the possible risk of over-consumption, if you should happen to lack the self control to resist, I recommend this very simple procedure:
I enjoy the Wint-O-Green candy taste, its a strong mint flavor. That being said, when you first open the bag the smell can be overwhelming until it dissipates. Each candy is individual wrapped and can be tucked into a purse, pocket or thrown in to my car console. Good price.
I bought these mints for my sister's baby shower which had a nautical theme. they worked great as favors, and i had so many left over. they came quickly and were wrapped up pretty good so the majority of them were not broken, only a few. there are two of these large 50 ounce bags which is a crazy deal since the price everywhere else is expensive when you compare. The only slight downside to these mints is that they are really strong. i tried eating several and i couldn't do it. I guess one is enough after dinner or whenever you need to freshen your breath and they work great for that:).
I searched and online...this was the best bang for your buck. BUT if you own a Costco card they are much much cheaper. the product itself seemed pretty good. I had to make 100 favors for a wedding and had alot left over. Some may be kinda dry and brittle but for the most part they taste good and are very strong (our bed room smelled like mint for days). They will do the job for stinky breath and a little candy to chew on (always nice to have minty breath before a wedding, unless your allergic to it of course ;) ).
These are a great tasting mint to pop thru the day when you feel your breath might need a little freshening up. They are so good they might become a bit addictive. They aren't sugar free so I am trying to limit how many I have a day... but the fact that they are individually wrapped and easy to keep on hand makes them great to have around.
