Product Description

Product Description

Altoids - the curiously strong mints
"The Curiously Strong Mints"

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 By the 1920s, the original cardboard box had been replaced by the more durable distinctive metal tins of today.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.

Are Altoids Tins Recyclable?

The tins we use for Altoids are made from tin plate, which is one of the most recyclable materials used in the manufacturing of packaged goods. The good news about these tins is that they also come in handy as small storage containers for things like nails, coins, paper clips, and buttons to name a few - the possibilities are endless. We've even learned that the tins have been used for more curious purposes - as hand-held works of art, even as an emergency wilderness stove.

For over 100 years, Altoids were packaged in small rectangular cardboard cartons that were approximately the same size as today's recognizable tins. The tins were introduced in the 1920s to help protect the mints and to stay neatly closed in pockets and handbags.

About the Brand

Around the turn of the 19th century, during the reign of King George III, the recipe for the original Altoids was perfected by Smith & Company, a London confectionary firm. They were first sold in the U.S. in 1918, at that time sold in small, rectangular cardboard cartons. The tins so recognizable today were first introduced in the 1920s to help protect the mints and to stay neatly closed in pockets and handbags.

Today, the Altoids line includes mints, sours, and gum.

Why Are They Called Altoids?
The exact origin of the name is unclear, but it seems that during the 19th century confections were given names employing the -oids suffix to imply a medicinal benefit (Altoids were promoted for more than a century as a "stomach calmative," though of course Altoids provides no medicinal benefit). Smith & Company also marketed several other remedies with –oids in their names, such as Benoids for delicate throats and chests, Zenoids for an easy digestion, Cyphoids to defend your throat, and Notoids antiseptic voice and throat pastilles.

Flavor Name: Wintergreen
Altoids wintergreen mints were once my favorite flavor of altoids. They had a clean, refreshing, decidedly strong rush of pure mint flavor. For years I enjoyed the intense, clean sweet flavor, as I bit into them. Unfortunately, Wrigleys (the new owners) have altered the flavor (more artificial ingredients?) and added blue artificial color to them. The mints now taste like cheap toothpaste, that leaves an unpleasant chemical aftertaste in your mouth. These once delightful mints are now ghastly! Let's hope the Wrigley's people with the uneducated palates don't mess with the Peppermint Altoids! I will not buy these wintergreen mints again, unless they change back to the old style, which was full of natural mint flavor, and artifical color free. If you are lucky enough to find a tin that does not list "color (blue 1)" in the ingredients list, you've found some of the old style wintergreen mints (the good ones). The full ingredients list on the original good wintergreen altoids was (sugar, natural and artificial flavors, gum arabic, gelatin). Since I wrote this review I've been fortunate to find about a dozen boxes of the good, old mints. These were at small out of the way grocery/drug stores that tend to charge a little more for their products.

July, 2012: Well, it's been a year since I've been able to find a box of the good, old mints. I broke down and bought a box of the new version today. Wrigley's has added some of the natural flavor back to these mints, and they do taste slightly better. However, they have left in the artificial color "blue 1", which negatively affects the flavor, and leaves a bit of bitter aftertaste. I won't buy them again. I did buy 6 boxes of the Peppermint Altoids. Thankfully, they are still the original formula, and as good as ever!

Flavor Name: Wintergreen Verified Purchase
To Other Prospective Purchasers of Altoids Wintergreen Mints,
I have enjoyed these mints for many, many years. however, the latest batch I bought, after Wrigley's purchased the company, are truly horrible. You get a short burst of minty flavor and then at least an hour's worth of a synthetic/chemical aftertaste which is quite unpleasant. I'll not buy them again unless Wrigley's returns to the original recipe. I guess they are saving a few cents by changing the recipe, but they are going to lose a whole lot of customers in my opinion.
I would have rated the old Wintergreen Altoids with all the stars in the firmament, but the new ones rate none at all. Don't buy them unless you have to.

Must say I am so bummed out when I bought the 3 pack of 'artificially flavored' wintergreen....(FIRST CLUE?) from another source to find; not only do I not have real sugar, I am getting blue dye too. This is obviously not 'original recipe' as states on front of tin so, quit trying to sell it that way Wrigley!! Not happy and won't buy anymore!

Flavor Name: PeppermintSize: 12 Pack
Peppermint Altoid mints REALLY do a fine job of making your breath fresh with their extra strong peppermint flavor. For some people these may taste a little too strong, perhaps; but I enjoy them very much.

Altoid mints are very low in calories, fat, sodium and more. The main effect, therefore, is simply to make your breath its very freshest. They come in that famous little tin that keeps them fresh until their expiration date.

Overall, I highly recommend Altoids as THE ultimate in breath mints. People who also simply love that strong peppermint taste will delight in these, too.

Great job, Altoids!

Flavor Name: Cinnamon
My wife and I just love these fiery cinnamon mints. They are the best breath fresheners around and they work quickly.

The biggest issue is that we put a box in each of our cars and several around the house. We even carry a few extras in the car as we use them and like to have a backup. Because we were always running out we started buying them by the 12 pack and keep them in our pantry.

They stay fresh as they are individually wrapped and they are in a convenient metal tin to carry around. They are also a better buy when you get them by the 12 pack!

Flavor Name: Wintergreen
I loved wintergreen Altoids! In fact I loved them so much I stocked up last year at Easter when they were on sale for half price. I had enough to last until this week. So I bought a couple of tins at my local grocery. Today I opened one and found out 1) they are now blueish in color and 2) the taste is terrible! What prompted Wrigley or whomever to change these? I can't describe the taste except that it is too strong and has a bitter aftertaste - nothing like the Altoids I used to love (and I had a few left today so I could compare side-by-side). If you love Wintergreen Altoids and haven't had the blue ones yet, don't buy them. You will be very very disappointed. I'm going to return the unopened tin and see if the grocery will take the opened one back too.

The other review is correct... artificial color has been added to a great product and ruined it. The genius behind this decision should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on rail... ok, then, just fire them. The Altoid customer base, I would imagine, prefer natural ingredients and don't want crap... this is crap. The marketing genius behind this decision canNOT be a regular user of Altoids... any regular user would have known better... don't destroy a winner to make it look "pretty". I'm eating them for pete's sake, not dating them.

Same with the Spearmint. Ruined by artificial color and ingredients.

Duh... I guess I am too stupid to know the difference... Duh.

I am still buying the Peppermint... for now. As far as I know, it is the only Altoid mint that still uses natural peppermint oil and no artificial colors... for now.

OOoh oooh... how about this, marketing geniuses at Altoid... artificially colored red stripes in the Peppermint. Brilliant! Seriously, anybody that sees this and think it's a good idea needs to be FIRED.
