I have been a big fan of Tic Tac mints since they first came out when I was a kid (I guess I just dated myself again). They've become even more of a mainstay in my life since I became a driver, as I had a bunch of packages in the car at one point and provoked an expectation from my passengers that they would always find Tic Tacs there, perpetually forcing me to keep them properly stocked. I was only a little nonplussed by the "More Enjoyable Freshness" slogan on the last package of these I picked up, figuring there was a bonus container of mints in the package. To my shock, it turns out this refers to the fact that they've increased the size of each mint by 30%. I kept an open mind about this before trying them, but my worst fears are confirmed, as they have managed to ruin the ratio of outer coating to inner mint... actually I imagine the proportions are the same, but the effect is different, and I don't like the new variety nearly as much as the old one. I hope there's a plan to keep the older type around as well. If there isn't, I guess I'll have to count on disgruntled fans like myself forcing them to go back... sort of like how we got New Coke killed back in the day (gosh, that's already a long time ago too... I really have to stop doing that).
Ooops! Almost forgot -- Happy Birthday Frans!!!!!!!!
