Product Description

Introduced in 1780, Altoids mints were originally marketed to relieve stomach discomfort. By the 1920s, the original cardboard box had been replaced by the more durable distinctive metal tins of today. The irreverent, quirky personality of Altoids mints has led Altoids to be a top-selling mint in the U.S. The Altoids brand has expanded to include sugar-free mints in miniature portable tins. For the latest content from Altoids and to order products we invite you to visit Altoids.com.

Ingredients: Sugar, Gum Arabic, Artificial Flavors, Gelatin, Color (Red 40).

I don't care for most mint-flavored "mints", so the Altoids Curiously Strong Cinnamon Mints are perfect for me. They keep any breath odors at bay after meals, or simply throughout the day. The cinnamon flavor is very strong, and certainly not for the fainthearted. That said, I love the flavor, and find myself popping them, even if not after a garlic-laced meal. Another thing I LOVE about these mints is the metal container they come it. Not only do they keep the mints from crushing, but the case has a myriad of other uses after you've emptied it of the mints! For about $2 this is most definitely a Win-Win!

Man, I love Altoids! You get a GREAT product with a great flavor for an even greater price. The in box fits perfectly in a pocket or a purse. I'm not as big of a fan of the peppermint altoids because they are so strong, but the cinnamon flavor is great being so strong. I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like cinnamon, because you will indeed get cinnamon with this product. There was a while that I couldn't find the cinnamon flavor to purchase and nothing replaced it. I would definitely recommend if you like cinnamon.

I love Altoids Cinnamon Mints!

The flavor is delicious!! Growing up, we used to try to hold multiple Altoids in our mouths to see who could handle it the longest.

The cinnamon flavor is so good. It is very powerful at first, so make sure to take it easy!

These are my favourite cinnamon mints. The only down side is they can be difficult to find in stores. I love how intense the flavour is and the fact that they leave my mouth tingly and fresh! They have a true cinnamon taste and, like all Altoids, hold true to life their claim of "curiously strong"

What the Website Says: "Altoids are the quintessential mints for any connoisseur of fresh breath looking for the curiously strong taste."

My Experience: I bought Altoids for the first time, at a grocery store. I was standing in line, waiting to be checked out, so I simply grabbed the mints, because I wanted them for my purse, so my mouth would be refreshed after meals that I ate out.

Price: $2 for one normal-sized tin. I would say the prices are decent, actually the prices are really good.

Packaging: I like the packaging, because Altoids are in a metal container, compared to a plastic container, that most mints come in. The container is cute, and almost vintage-inspired. The inside is magnetic, which is perfect for crafts, after you have had your Altoids.

Quantity: 50-55 mints on average per tin. They give enough Altoids to satisfy me, and to live up to the price. I have never felt like I had run out of Altoids too fast.

Quality: The mints themselves are way too strong. I like the flavor, but the mints are so strong, my mouth feels like it is burning of coolness.

Final Verdict: The mints are way too strong, but worth it in the end.

These things are classic! I remember constantly reaching into my grandmas purse or glove compartment for one these boxes and shoving five of them in my mouth at once. They are sweet but also have a little kick. They freshen your breath like its nobody's business though.

WOAH! These things are STRONG! I can't handle them at all I really can't  I understand the appeal of them though the tin is cute, flavor is strong, it def does what it says it will and you get a lot for the price. Just not for me at all.

When ever I get altoids I'm reminded of my childhood; before I was a moody teenage girl. Whenever i saw my mothers Altoids I would enthusiastically ask if I could have one, finish it, then ask for another. Over and over. Mostly because I LOVED the feeling of my breath and mouth afterwards. It was cooling and felt clean. Altoids are real good for keeping your breath fresh if you have one of those big interviews or if you're going out on a date with that special someone! Even good for keeping your children quiet while you're trying to keep concentrated on the road. Its like a mint lollipop with out a stick for kids. Altoids are convenient and great to keep in your purse or your back pocket. OH! and they're made in one of my favorite places, Great Britain!
