NEWS: Mentos UP2U Gum Lets You Choose What Your Breath Is Going To Smell Like


Each pack of Mentos’ new UP2U Gum contains two flavors and according to the packaging it’s up to you to decide which flavor you’re going to choose to chew.

It sounds like a simple decision to make, but let me make it complex for you. Mentos UP2U Gum comes in four varieties: Daylight Mint/Mintnight Mint, Sweet Mint/Bubble Fresh, Berry Watermelon/Fresh Mint, and Mandarin Strawberry/Spearmint.

So you’re going to have to choose between those four varieties, but before that you have to choose which checkout line you’re going to wait in. Do you go with unfriendly male cashier who scans items quickly, but sucks at bagging goods? Or do you go with the talkative female cashier who asks you how you’re doing, but stops scanning in order to do so?

Once you pick a checkout line, which is where you’ll most likely find the Mentos UP2U Gum, you’ll then have to choose between the four varieties and you have to do it before the cashier rings up the people in front of you. Depending on what the shoppers in front of you are purchasing and whether or not you have a slow cashier, you have somewhere between 30 seconds to 4 minute to decide. You could buy all of them, but do you really chew that much gum?

Once you’ve chosen your pack, you’ve narrowed it down to two flavors, but I prefer to not think of them as flavors. Instead, I think of them as what your breath is going to smell like. What your breath smells like as you chew Mentos UP2U Gum could determine whether or not you get that first kiss, or whether or not your co-workers feel comfortable working closely with you, or it’ll determine if your grandma will kiss you on the cheek or mouth.

Good luck with choosing which flavor to chew.

Each pack of sugarfree Mentos UP2U Gum contains 14 pieces and will retail for $1.49.

  1. I just bought a pack today. The packaging is eye-catching which is probably why I picked it over others. I won’t make the same mistake twice! This gum is hard right out of the wrapper. I much prefer Trident’s layers.

  2. I like mentos candy and gum. I would like to make a suggestion that Mentos change how they package the two flavors in the gum. I opened the two up gum package that had speriment and madarin strawberry and the flavor from the spearmint was dominating the flavor of the madarine strawberry. The madarin strawberry was to minty tasting. It’s the same for the peppermint with the other fruit flavors. The gum is nice but you should seperate the flavors or put fruity with fruity and mint with mint.
