Altoids are a breath mint that live up to the slogan "The curiously strong mint." They are sold in small tins that are often recycled for storing small objects such nails, coins, paper clips, and buttons to name a few.
Altoids are a brand of breath mints that have existed since the 18th century. Altoids are less widely available in Britaintheir country of originthan in the regions to which they are exported. The mints are stocked in relatively few stores, including Tesco and Waitrose supermarket chains. Unlike their marketing in the USA, they have never been heavily marketed in the UK. Callard & Bowser-Suchard formerly manufactured and produced Altoids at a plant in Bridgend, Wales, but Wrigley, the brand's owner, moved Altoids' production to an existing plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to manufacture the products closer to where they are primarily marketed. They were marketed for a brief period in the 1990s under the 'Nuttall's' brand when Callard and Bowser was under the ownership of Terry's. Altoid mints labeled 'sugar-free smalls' do not contain gelatin, therefore they are suitable for vegans, vegetarians or those following a halal or kosher diet.
