Does Certs[edit]

Does Certs Cool Mint Drops actually still exist? I haven't seen any in months anywhere in any store. Jaybonaut 02:58, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

re Image:Certs breathmint 2005 package.jpg[edit]

This image has been removed:

I question this. First of all, the image is more free than the the replacment image

File:Cinnamon Certs.jpg
Cinnamon Certs.jpg


because it a drawing, hence original creative work that creates a new copyright, whereas Image:Cinnamon Certs.jpg is a mechanical reproduction with no creative elements, hence it some jurisdictions it may be not be considered entirely free. (This is different from the situation at Eclipse (mints), where at least there is an element of creativity in the photograph. All things being equal, it is better to use a more free image when practicable. Also, Image:Certs breathmint 2005 package.jpg shows the "new look" package while Image:Cinnamon Certs.jpg shows the older package; both should be be shown, or if only one then the current package. Absent argument to the contrary, my inclination is to restore the original image. Herostratus (talk) 15:40, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

No counter-argument having been advanced in the ensuing five years, I've restored the previous version. Herostratus (talk) 05:22, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Retsyn - green flecks[edit]

The article says retsyn gives it the green flakes...then how come my assorted fruit certs have no green flakes? they are orange, but the package still says it contains retsyn? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.11.0.7 (talk) 11:08, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Because the writer, or the company, made it up. Huw Powell (talk) 06:18, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
I didn't make it up, but the company did. Retsyn is a made-up word; it is basically copper gluconate. Why they wanted to put copper gluconate in a breath mint I don't know -- it seems to serve no function. I don't know about copper gluconate, but copper carbonante, or verdigris, is green -- it is copper carbonate that gives the Statue of Liberty its color. Why fruit certs haven't green flecks I don't know, but I suppose they didn't want them in the fruits, and so found a way to suppress them -- perhaps by reducing the amount of "retsyn", although I don't know.
