Introduced in 1948, Mentos is a brand of scotch mints that are known to have a hard shell but a soft and chewy middle on the inside. Mentos was first produced in the Netherlands and is now available in over 100 countries worldwide, including in Singapore. The irresistibly fresh candies are available in an array of different flavours, although some may be limited to selected countries. In Japan, Mentos are available in unique flavours like Fuji apple and Ume.
Other than the original mint-flavoured Mentos, common flavours include strawberry, orange and lemon. While the green apple and grape flavour can be purchased in Singapore, they are not available worldwide. Those that prefer the mint Mentos should try the Mentos Strong, where the minty freshness of the original Mentos is enhanced. Mentos are usually packaged in convenient rolls that come in different sizes, making it easy to bring them around and share with others.
