BlogAdda, under it's product review program was offering a mint to be review. Intriguing. The first things that came to my mind are the rolls of mint sold for Rs 10/- in the market. A brand wants that reviewed? Curious, I applied. I was a little late in receiving this package, so the review is a bit late as well.
The product was Ultramintz, by none other than ITC. Remember growing up on Mint-O, the mint with a whole!? Ultramintz is the new ITS Mint-O. The packaging was highly impressive; one can be fooled to think something else was inside the boxes. Two boxes, neatly packed with a ribbon tied. And this is not all, the packages were personalized for all 50 bloggers who are to review the mint. Here, take a look at mine!
Inside, where two boxes. My husband was driving while I was opening the boxes and from whatever glances he could steal while concentrating on the road, he kept saying, "This can't be peppermint!"
But it was! Such royal packaging, enough to make a reviewer feel pampered and posh. The inside of the box looked like this, the box of mint nestled in the middle, just like an engagement ring, with a note from the manufacturers, along with it.
There used to be a time I used to be addicted to mints. When you are sitting on a chair, editing for hours, while the news room around you is abuzz, popping a small piece of mint helped me divert my mind from my surroundings and focus. But, I had to stop soon as my sugar intake kept increasing. Ultramintz claims to have no sugar added. I have tasted it, and it tastes just fine. So, a sugarless piece of mint is highly recommended if you, like me, love to suck on a piece of mint all the time! I mean, how cool is this!
The mints are small in size, like pellets. This, was a hit with me. I have always felt the regular Polo, Mint-o pieces were too big and wished they were smaller. Ultramintz is just right. One is enough for normal situations, my husband said, a smoker might need two. No harm, they are sugar less, so pop in two, if you please!
A big thumbsup to Ultramintz. From packaging to the size of the pellets, to the freshness in tastes, to it's price - everything is a winner!
