Mentos Share-A-Bowl
Mentos Mints have long been known for promoting sociability. And that’s exactly what our new Mentos Share-A-Bowl does. Each Mentos Share-A-Bowl contains 125 individually wrapped mints—perfect for sharing at the office, a party or a tailgate, as the package converts into a candy dish. The resealable plastic package ensures freshness and prevents spilling. As consumers seek more large packs and on-the-go convenience, Mentos Share-A-Bowl is the perfect response, and a great value with an SRP of $5.49.

Mentos Always White
What’s better than great tasting, sugar-free gum? Great tasting, sugar-free gum that actually whitens teeth! Available in Bubble Fresh and Peppermint flavors, Mentos Always White helps whiten teeth by reducing stains. The unique cap actually has two different openings—one for you, and one for sharing—always keeping that social connection front of mind. Each convenient bottle contains 100 smaller pieces, allowing flexibility in how much you chew. At an SRP of $3.49, it’s a great value.

About Mentos
Mentos is in 159 countries, so it’s fair to say Mentos is a global brand. Mentos comes in a lot of different shapes, flavors and sizes, so there’s something for everyone and every taste. A lot of other brands out there obsess about what makes us all different; we’d rather explore the things we have in common. The Mentos brand is well-known. And it’s well-loved too. So wherever you go, one thing you can be sure of when you meet someone new is that they love Mentos. This means that if you have Mentos in your hand you have the ultimate conversation starter, a sure way to make a connection. All you need to do is offer. After all— Who says no to Mentos?
