If DreamWorks comes out with Over the Hedge 2, then maybe Mom Brand’s could reuse the marshmallows in this one for that movie’s cereal. (Spotted by Robbie at Walmart.)
10,000,000,000 times better than those chalky conversation hearts. (Spotted by Kevin G at CVS.)
Why the rush for mints, Mentos? (Spotted by Ellen at Walgreens.)
A white rabbit got Alice lost in Wonderland, so it makes me wonder if that white rabbit on the packaging will get Annie’s lost in the yogurt aisle. (Spotted by Carla at Walmart.)
Fits in your cup holder? I’ve never used a cup holder as a bowl, but if you insist Kellogg’s. (Spotted by Emily B at Food Lion.)
If you were hoping in 2014 that Dannon Activia Fruit Fusions would be available outside the U.K., your wish has been granted. (Spotted by Amanda at Walmart.)

Two products that are aleady available in europe made it to the US (Mentos and Activia Fusion)?
Never knwo those two weren’t available in the US.
The Mentos (at least peppermint and wintergreen) are solid and taste good for mints. I don’t mind buying them, though i think they are a bit expensive and can’t compete with TicTac Liberty (https://www.sweets-online.com/images/produkte/i16/160321.jpg).
The Activia Fusion jogurts a quite good. I don’t like the original activias, ’cause i think they don’t taste that good and the whole “healthy probiotic” thing is something you get from EVERY jogurt, but i kinda love the Peach & Mango flavor the the fusion range. It’s like spooning a dreamcicle (creamsicle) with Mango and peach coating. Like a Solero (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solero_%28ice_cream%29).
btw… just realized: in germany the flavors are Mango & Passion fruit and Peach & Pineapple… xD
quite interesting. So i hope Mango & Peach taste just as good as Mango & Passion fruit
What so special with mentos now? It seems to me is mints in small size.
unfortunately my reply isn’t unlocked yet (or was lost somehow), but as i mentioned in that comment: nothing special about those mints, though they are fairly good (in my opinion; and i was just able to try peppermint and wintergreen). Not as good as TicTac Liberty, but still worth buying if you want a mint drop that delivers. (Although they are kinda expensive; at least in germany and in my opinion)
And since the original mentos are more candy (chewy/soft candy) and/or scotch mints those smaller fellows in the picture are real mints, like altoids.
And although it’s a while since i read an article about americans changing their behavior and consuming less chewing gum and more mints it’s just consequent for mentos to jump on that bandwagon ^^
