If you want to have fresh breath, there are many popular types of breath mints from major candy companies. Breath mints give you confidence for social situations. For situations where you can't chew gum, mints are a quick way to give you good breath.


Altoids are mints that come in distinct, hinge-operated metal tins. First released in 1780, Altoids were originally marketed as stomach-relief tablets. With the motto "Curiously Strong Mints," Altoids have become popular across the globe. The most common flavour is peppermint, but Altoids also come in wintergreen, spearmint, ginger, liquorice, honey and Creme de Menthe. There are also "Altoid Smalls," which are smaller than standard Altoids. In addition to breath mints, another Altoid variation is fruit-flavoured candies.


Made by the Wrigley company, Eclipse mints are intense, sugar-free mints that come in flip-top metal boxes. Released in 2003, Eclipse mints are available in several flavours like cinnamon, Winterfrost, spearmint and peppermint. Eclipse also makes chewing gum in the same flavours.

Ice Breakers

Hershey's also makes a popular brand of breath mints called Ice Breakers. Ice Breakers come in round plastic containers in flavours like Wintergreen, Coolmint, Spearmint and Cinnamon. Ice Breakers have distinct flavour crystals that deliver mint flavour. Hershey's also distributes Ice Breakers Frost mints, which come in peppermint and Wintercool flavours. Ice Breakers also makes gum and sour candies.


Clorets, a popular gum made by Cadbury, also created breath mints in 1991. Clorets contain chlorophyll, in addition to Actizol, which neutralises bad breath. Clorets are available around the world and come in peppermint, spearmint, orange mint and Dark Secret flavours.

Breath Savers

Breath Savers are Hershey's popular breath mints that come in foil-wrapped rolls. Breath Savers are common in vending machines across the United States and come in two standard flavours: peppermint, wintergreen and spearmint. These sugar-free mints also come in other variations, including 3-Hour Mint and Strong Mint. The 3-Hour Mint flavour also comes in a round tin.
