Tic Tac (stylized as "tic tac") is a brand of small, hard mint manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero. Tic Tac are usually sold in small transparent plastic boxes with a flip-action living hinge lid.
Tic Tac were first introduced by Ferrero in 1968, under the name "Refreshing Mints." In 1970, the name was changed to Tic Tacs, after the distinctive sound of the mints rattling in their container.
Eighties were the time of breaking through the walls of old - both for the world and for Tic Tac as well. Sales sky-rocketed in emerging markets, expanding Tic Tac to a total of five continents, and the introduction of new flavours were the marks of good times for the most popular Mints around the globe.
Besides the original "Orange" and Fresh Mint flavors, several new varieties were added, including aniseed, cinnamon (or "Winter Warmer"), an orange and lime mix (in 1976), spearmint, peppermint, Powermint, orange and lime together (in 1978), cherry, passion fruit (in 2007), pomegranate (in 2010), mango, lime, and popcorn (2014),..
