Little i mirror mints
I popped over to my favorite boutique grocery store for some Dutch Coca-Cola, and noticed a pretty cool pack of mints in the impulse items section. Little i Peppermints taste suspiciously similar to Altoids mints, but they come in a little pink tin packaged with a makeup mirror. The lid slides open, and there's a small hole in the mirror holder for shaking out a mint or two at a time.
The pack I picked up has the mints in a one by three inch sliding tin, but there's a larger flip top box in the traditional Altoids style. They come in peppermint, citrus, and chocolate and they're made with good ol' traditional Splenda to weigh in at 0 calories per mint. It's a clever plan to market common sugar free mints to women, but I imagine that most jet set ladies use their iPods to apply makeup.
I also like the product because the woman who answered their phone has a long-haired Chihuahua in the office. Anyone that likes dogs is ok in my book.
