List of breath mints

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of breath mint brands in alphabetical order. A breath mint is a type of candy primarily consumed to freshen the smell of one's breath, by masking offensive odors with the scent of mint or other flavoring, and by stimulating the flow of saliva to help remove food and bacterial debris from the mouth. Like chewing gums and throat lozenges, many breath mints are artificially sweetened and consumed solely for non-nutritive purposes.
