In 2003, a small silver tin containing mints – Vermints - circulated around Vermont.

Four years later, there are 6 flavours, the tins are larger and all varieties have natural, organic ingredients for you to enjoy!

Breath mints and pastilles are generally pretty boring and intense. But Vermints are incredibly tasty and come in flavours that I am truly grateful for. I love the Wintermint for when I’m interviewing chefs or after visiting a restaurant for review, and the Cinnamint and Gingermint are great if you’re in the mood for something less minty.

But my very favourites are the Chai and Café Express as they satiate my love for all things coffee and chair! And not only do they taste authentic, but they are authentic! The Café Express pastilles are flavoured with Fair Trade Coffee from Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and the Chai are flavoured with Fair Trade Tea from Honest Tea, so you are definitely getting the real thing!

All of the mints/pastilles have no artificial flavoring or coloring, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, animal products, are nut and gluten-free and Kosher certified.

They are only 1 carbohydrate per serving and each piece is only 5 calories, so you don’t have to have just one (trust me, you won’t be able to resist!).

Vermints are one of those things that you can’t believe you’ve lived without this long.

And thank goodness, now you don’t have to!
