Dentyne mints (pronounced "Den-TEEN") are a brand of breath mint manufactured by Cadbury Adams, a division of Cadbury-Schweppes.

Description

The mints are produced in two flavors: Ice (mint flavored) and Fire (cinnamon flavored). The form is a white (Dentyne Ice Mints) or red (Dentyne Fire Mints) pillow shape (slightly rounded square with rounded top and bottom). The mints are plain, with no printing or embossing.

Dentyne Mints are packed in a plastic box in the form of a rectangular solid with corners slightly rounded (along the X and Y axes only). Along the top of the top is a square hole with a sliding cover. Sliding this cover away from the hole allows access to the mints. The box uses no hinges.

50 mints are contained in each package.

Dentyne mints are not true mints, as they contain no mint oil.

Nomenclature

The classification of Dentyne Fire as a "mint" can be questioned, as they contain (natural and artificial) cinnamon flavor, rather than mint flavor. Cadbury Adams, however, identifies both Dentyne Ice and Dentyne Fire as "mints".

Dentyne gum

Dentyne Mints should not be confused with Dentyne gum, which is also made in Ice and Fire flavors, is sold in packaging similar to Dentyne Mints, and has a generally similar form.
