Tic Tac Chill

If SweeTarts made a small, nondescript cherry version of its candies (in the shape of an engorged Tic Tac), they’d taste just like the Tic Tac Chill Exotic Cherry. Not bad. Not great. I like the tartness, but there’s not much “cherry” going on here. Surely nothing exotic.

The Tic Tac Chill series of sugarfree flavors (Exotic Cherry and Paradise Mint) come in a plastic box substantially larger than regular Tic Tacs – probably because the candies inside are about double the size of the standard ones. (Box note: in addition to the regular flip-top opening, the Tic Tac Chill containers have a front slide panel opening – where you see the name – that’s kind of cool and pretty straightforward to use, I thought. But Tic Tac seems to think it’s so complicated to operate that they’ve got video instructions online… go figure.)

Now, I haven’t tried the Paradise Mint, but there’s no mention of breath-freshening on the Exotic Cherry, so I consider these straight candy. Except that candy and sugarfree sound like Punch and Judy to me: they don’t tend to get along in my puppet theater.

But at least these Tic Tacs aren’t sweetened with aspartame; they have the much better-tasting xylitol. This sugar substitute also reduces dental plaque, supposedly, by attracting bad microorganisms to itself – then starving them to death because it’s not a real sugar they can use. Tell me about it.

But hey, if you want to trick your mouth and get a fairly weak cherry Sweetart-esque experience in a small package, Tic Tac Chill Exotic Cherry might be just the ticket. Don’t expect any high cherry drama, though.

The new Chill varieties of Tic Tac will be hitting shelves soon.

    These are already on the shelves in CT, have been for a while, and I have to say that I love them. They’re sweet, but not overwhelmingly, and the cherry flavour is a gentle cherry, not the overdone faux cherry that you get in a lot of candies.

    i haven’t tried these, but i have a gripe with manufacturers.

    i am a long-time lover of orange Tic-Tacs, but i can’t buy them anymore. I feel too guilty when i come to the last tic-tac. What am i supposed to do with the box? it’s completely useless and not recyclable. Does anyone else feel this way?

    Why have all candy packages gone completely environmentally unfriendly?? (i’m looking at you, HERSHEY!!!)

    Xylitol is terrible. It is extremely toxic to dogs, causing low blood sugar (seizures, drooling, vomiting) and in some cases liver failure and death. I wish the gum companies would stop adding it to all of their products. I refuse to buy any products containing it.

    The name of these mints keeps making me think of “Take a chill pill!”

    Heh. Now you can actually tell someone to take a Chill pill and offer them one!

    Tons of things are “toxic” to dogs in large doses. Xylitol is found in the fibres of many fruits and vegetables, including various berries, corn husks, oats, and mushrooms. It can be extracted from corn fiber, birch, raspberries, plums, and corn.

    It is safe! Just dont eat like 100 boxes of tic tacs….

    I have been trying to find out who sings the song attached to the “Chill” online ad. This is driving me insane, as the song is with me wherever I go, rattling around in my head. Can ANYONE help me with this?

    Xylitol should be in more products. It can prevent the number one disease that children face in america and all over the world. I search for products with xylitol init for my patients. Have you ever known someone who has had head and neck radiation to battle cance? Xylitol is a naturaly occuring product that can be of extrem benifit to these people who suffer from dry mouth which is painfull and leads to dental decay. Chocolate is toxic to dogs lets ban that.

    Lemon says:

    If Tic-Tacs are so bad for people, and can cause liver failure, then I should be dead. So what now? I’ve eaten loads of tic tacs, and I’m perfectly fine. Lori is right. Xylitol is nothing but a beneficial product. It’s not harmful.
