I'm very fussy and when trying to find a mint I liked I found that by process of elimination, Smint was the only one for me.

Pros:
Sugar free
Small
Strong flavours (long lasting)
Dispenser as opposed to paper wrapping

Cons:
For me it's not an issue but these 100 mint packs are large. Perhaps not ideal if you don't have a jacket, bag or big pockets. Having said that I'd still buy these smints, just in the smaller packs.
That's about it.

What I really like is not only are they sugar free, but instead of using the sugar alcohols like sorbitol that can irritate the gut and bowels, it uses xylitol which is a very safe compound and only has a fraction of the effect. Given that you needed to overdose quite significantly even on sorbitol, xylitol is an ideal compound for these mints.

All in all, excellent mints, great value. I would highly recommend.

This seemed like great value, but there is one thing I didn't expect when I ordered. These packs are about twice the size of the packs you get in the shops - these packs have 100 smints each, which is more than double what the normal retail packs have. The normal retail packs have only 40 smints each.

I have never seen these bumper size packs in the shops, so I was surprised when I opened the parcel. These packs are not as convenient to slip into your pocket or handbag/manbag, so you might want to keep them in your draw and/or use them as refills for a regular size pack.

I love mints. I am never without a nice mint and over the years my quest has been to hunt down what I consider to be the perfect mint.

And in these large Smints I feel I have at last found my quarry.

For me a mint needs to be strong, but not unpleasantly so, long lasting on the palette, non-sugary and kind on the teeth. These Smints tick all of those boxes with aplomb and justify every penny of their price.

They come in a matchbox-sized plastic dispenser which works well and contains around 100 of the little crackers.

The triangular shaped mints themselves are very well flavoured, strong but not overpowering, and have a refreshing, non-acidic, long finish that keeps breath fresh for ages. For maximum pleasure they are best enjoyed sucked, and not crunched.

I also believe, thanks to to Xylitol, that they're kind, or kinder, on the teeth. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener, which has 33% less calories than sugar and has some other health benefits, albeit in much higher dosages than you'd get in a mint. So, all good.

To summarise if you like a mint, you'll absolutely love a Smint.

Several beneficial effects: counteracts dry mouth, constipation, plaque and therefore gum disease - besides freshening the breath and being very convenient to carry around and pleasant to take.
Difficult to find in the shops therefore best obtained on-line.

hard to find in the shops near me and I use them to counter-act coffee breath so consider them essential for my collegues.
They are the genuine article, and even though postage is a bit steep I will be back for more.

These fresh breath mints taste revolting, they remind me very strongly of Harpic. Added to which they quickly disintegrate into an unpleasant dry chalky mass in the mouth. They come in a very fancy dispenser pack, where the button is depressed and a mint is ejected below. This fancy packaging really annoys me as it is so wasteful! I suspect also that if they were in a normal packaging then they would cost half as much. They are advertised as having extra virtue as they contain Xylitol, another thing that annoys me as it is useless information unless the reader knows just what Xylitol is, and I do not think I am alone in being completely in the dark about this supposedly wondrous chemical. I really detest this sort of banboozling faux scientific advertising. 1 star for an all round third rate and annoying product.

My previous experience of Smints was having them for free in a hotel in Barcelona (Spain) where I stayed many times when on business there. I built up quite a good stock of them! But, eventually I had consumed them all and was pleased to see them listed by Amazon. And those I have received after ordering from Amazon are just as good.

My name is Tefi, I'm a Smintaholic. These tiny little mints are the best out there . Don't buy these!...I want them all for myself.
