Also, The Foo Fighters once made a music video taking the piss out of Mentos commercials

We love Mentos.  Love.  And we’ve reviewed our fair share, with these, these, this other variety, that one, hell….even these – oh, and this one too.  So a lot.  And frankly, they’re all extremely good to phenomenal.  Mentos knows what’s up with regards to developing flavors, and rarely ever disappoints.  Their latest offering?  Duo.


Simple concept that’s been done to death: 2 flavors in one.  The smart thing Menots did was to make it a strong pairing, so they decided on strawberries and lime.  Anything and lime works, but this combo works especially well.  As for the look & feel, well…you already know about that, because it’s the same as all Mentos.


Like a peaceful tiny UFO, coming to invade your mouth.

Like all Mentos, these start off with that crunchy, tough, hard chewy “are these stale”? thing, and immediately loosen up into chewing bliss.  You get the strawberry first, and the lime comes in second to round it out.  They’re not sour, or even especially tart, but the two flavors are both discernible and super yummy.

These aren’t the easiest to find in the US, but right now you can get them at the link below.

Does anyone even remember that these are, and will always be, the “Freshmaker”?  Or am I dating myself once again?

    Oh, they’re the Freshmaker alright, always and forever.

    I assume Guru Matty is collecting all sorts of European delights on his vacation and will publish a litany of top notch, high-octane bangers upon his return…yes? Can’t wait. 🙂

      Strangely, I didn’t pull in that much candy. Part of it was a space issue. In my bag, and in the back fat I’m already hoarding.
