Tic Tac (officially styled as 'tic tac') is a brand of small, hard mints manufactured by the Italian confectioner Ferrero, and available in a variety of flavors. The individual candy pieces are commonly called Tic Tacs. Tic Tacs were first produced in 1969. They are usually sold in small transparent plastic boxes with a flip-action living hinge lid. Originally, Tic Tacs were dyed specific colors for different flavors. Now, in many countries, the transparent plastic boxes are colored but the actual Tic Tac pieces are white. Tic Tacs were first introduced in 1969. Besides the original Fresh mint flavor, several new varieties were added including: cinnamon (or 'Winter Warmer'), orange, and an orange and grape mix (in 1976), spearmint, peppermint, mandarin, wintergreen, orange and lime together (from 2005 to 2009), cherry, passion fruit (in 2007), pomegranate (in 2010), and lime.
