Mentos (stylized as mentos) is a brand of packaged scotch mints sold in stores and vending machines. First produced in 1932, they are currently sold in more than 130 countries worldwide by the Italian-Dutch corporation Perfetti Van Melle. The mints are small oblate spheroids, with a slightly hard exterior and a soft, chewy interior.
They are typically sold in rolls that contain 14 mint discs, although the “Sour Mix” variety contains only 11 discs per roll. Smaller versions also exist, typically containing 4 to 6 discs per roll. Certain flavors are sold in boxes in Australia, the United States, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil and the United Kingdom, and the rolls are available in four-packs. The current slogan of Mentos is “Stay Fresh”, while the line previously used extensively in the 80s and 90s was “The Freshmaker”. Most Mentos packages describe the mints as “chewy dragées.” The typical Mentos roll is approximately 2 cm (0.79 in) in diameter and weighs 38 grams (1.3 oz). “Mentos” is the singular form.
