Mentos Fanta (Asda) By @Cinabar

Mentos Fanta

I haven’t bought Mentos for quite some time. This would confuse my work colleagues from my previous job, who knew me as the person with Mentos on the desk. I changed jobs, COVID happened, and working from home more meant I now rarely have sweets on the desk (as I don’t have a fixed desk anymore).

While shopping, I did spot a new flavour from Mentos and couldn’t resist revisiting my old favourite sweets. These ones are an orange edition and are Mentos Fanta. I know it has been a while since I last had these sweets, but I swear they made the pack more difficult to open. They used to be loose paper, but now they seem to be sealed on the ends. Probably more hygienic, to be fair.

The Mentos Fanta sweets are orange in colour and start with quite a sharp orange tang that mellows to a sweet orange. I guess they are a bit like Fanta in the softer flavour, but I’m not sure I’d have been able to pick them out from a generic orange. Still, they were nice, hard, chewy sweets with a good rush of citrus flavour. I shall enjoy the rest of the pack and try to remember to treat myself to Mentos more often.
