    The Altoid gum seems a bit strong.... so what do you suggest?
    (as I sit here on a Thursday with no new news....)

    Straight up original Altoids are some of the best mints out there...especially with the tin case. :D

    I like Extra sugar-free gum. Almost any flavor.

    For almost a year now I have been enjoying BreathSavers. I like the Spearmint and WinterGreen.

    Whatever wintergreen or spearmint sugar free gum I can find in bulk at Sam's at the time I'm there. Right now it's Dentyne Ice Spearmint.

    altoids are full of cow!
    (gelatin)
    Haven't touched the things for over a year.

    I'm quite partial to that gum they sell at the Dollar store.

    Orbit gum keeps its flavor forever. Also, the fruit Trident kind is good:)

    Yeah, mints with gelatin just don't taste as good to me. I like the Eclipse peppermint. Very strong like Altoids, but sugar and gelatin free, so no lingering mouth fuzziness.

    I second the Orbit, dark blue, longest lasting flavor by far.

    When I was in my mint stage, I went with eclipse winterfresh.

    Now that I'm in my gum stage, it's orbitz all the way. My favorite flavors are (1) Cinnamint, and (2) Sweetmint, which is a *NEW FLAVOR*. I was pretty excited about my sweet mint discovery a week or so ago. Try it... it's amazing!

    I have chronically bad breath, so I'm always sucking down mints and chewing gum. It's a damn shame really. Damn shame.

    Mints. Smints, to be precise. The blue ones, but i'll take the green ones in a desperate situation.

    For some reason I really hate gum - I hate chewing it once it gets past the flavoursome stage. And then I hate seeing other people chewing it with their mouths open. And then I hate seeing it (or worse, inadvertently touching it) stuck everywhere. And I really, really, really hate it when people click little bubbles in their gum. Over and over and over again. Especially behind you on a bus. :mad:

    No offence to anyone who does eat gum, though, I'm sure you're all very responsible. :eek:

    Oh, and I was surprised to see in devilot's "Altoid" thread, that they say "Made in England" on them. I've never seen them here. I'd always assumed they were American. Either I'm blind (which is possible), or they're one of those things that is technically British but is impossible to get hold of here. I'm on a mission now to find some....

    Wrigley's Extra. Flavour of choice: peppermint. I go through at least two packs a day. Simply love the stuff. :)

    Guess it's a given that I like altoids' mints... but they're so weak to me. Even with three at a time, they don't seem minty AT ALL anymore, too sweet.

    I chew Eclipse, the uhh... umm... polar ice? Okay, I don't remember the exact flavor.

    And I have a couple of SMINT boxes that were specially manufactured/labelled. I'll try to post some pictures of it later.

    Hmm, maybe they're not for me then. I kind of like the fact that Smints aren't that sweet, but are so minty it hurts. :)
