5 Things I Like About Mentos
Nothing brightens my day quite like Mentos. They come in all shapes, colours and flavours, it’s a delight to savour them throughout the day. Here are 5 reasons why I love my Mentos!
1. Freshens the breath
Meeting a client or going on a date but you’ve just ate something that smells fishy? Uh oh… You have no time to rush to the bathroom for a quick gargle but you’ll always have Mentos with you. Just pop one Minty one into your mouth and hey presto, you are ready to go!
2. Wakes me up
Yep, the after-lunch snooze is not a myth. Everyone who’s had a heavy carb-laden lunch can certainly attest to that. Short of guzzling down that 6th cup of coffee, why not chew on some yummy refreshing Mentos gums? The jaw exercise plus minty taste will wake you right back to your productive self.
3. Keeps me happy while lazing in front of the TV
So there I am watching a favourite show on TV but something is missing. I’m having a feast for my eyes, but what about my taste buds? Instead of grabbing for a fattening snack, I chew on the fruitilicious Mentos chewies and my couch potato world is bright and wonderful again.
4. Makes me popular with the kids
Remember how quickly we made friends back in our school days? All we have to do is share our snacks and sweets, and we become best friends for the day. Similarly, whenever I’m faced with crying or restless kids when I’m out and about, or having my nephews and nieces over, trading or giving Mentos with them forges a bond so strong that I become their favourite adult friend. Some things never change.
5. Meetings are better with Mentos!
What do morning meetings and after-lunch meetings have in common? That’s right, nodding heads that are trying hard to keep awake. The minute I place a bottle of Mentos in the middle of the meeting table, grateful hands will reach out for the magical elixir that kicks off the sleepy stupor fogging their minds. As everyone chews busily, the meetings get recharged. And I become their favourite person. Now that’s what I call dynamite!
