How to Eat a Tic Tac the Right Way
Is There a Right Way to Eat a Tic Tac?
Tic Tacs are delicious little mints that help freshen your breath when you need it most. They are strong mints, so if your breath is in serious need of help, these are probably your best option. Not only are Tic Tacs tasty, there are many flavors to choose from. Some of the flavors are:
- Powermint (Spearmint)
- Strawberry Fields
- Fruit Adventure (Different fruit flavors in one pack)
A Tic Tac does not have to same shape as other mints. Instead, they are shaped like little oblong pills. For such a small candy, they pack a strong flavor. So is there a right way to eat a Tic Tac? Let's explore that conversation. Let's discuss the many ways one can eat a Tic Tac.
The Double Tic Tac Method
In many situations, one little Tic Tac just doesn't seem like enough. Eating two Tic Tacs at once is a better option. It includes double the flavor and plenty of freshness. However, does this mean your breath stays fresh twice as long? I seriously doubt it.
If you are interested in saving money by making your container of Tic Tacs last as long as possible, you should probably just have one Tic Tac at a time. If you are not concerned about having a good supply of Tic Tacs, go ahead and double up.
A Single Tic Tac at a Time
As just discussed, you might opt to only eat one Tic Tac at a time. This will save your Tic Tacs for a long time. However, you might not have such a "flavorful" experience. When eating your one Tic Tac, you can prolong the experience for as long as possible by not chewing on it. I would recommend that method for the freshest breath.
If you feel silly just sucking on one Tic Tac, you might consider chewing it. While that may give you a moment of satisfaction, it won't be that long lasting. If you insist on chewing your Tic Tacs, you probably should eat more than one at once.
The Greedy Multiple Tic Tac Eater
If you have a nice surplus of Tic Tacs, by all means, take as many as you want at once. Some people will not feel any satisfaction until their mouth is full of Tic Tacs. Also, it is in your best interest if you are a "Tic Tac Chewer" to put more than one in your mouth. One small Tic Tac is barely going to last at all with just one Tic Tac. When you eat multiple Tic Tacs at once, you have the option of eating chewing on one or two, but keeping the others in your mouth for longer. There are just so many Tic Tac options!
Please remember when someone offers you a Tic Tac, this is NOT your opportunity to take many Tic Tacs. No one is that generous. The friend offering you the Tic Tac is probably indicating your breath smells a little funky, and that person just wants to help. However, depriving that person of all that minty freshness so quickly is not fair. Make sure to take only two Tic Tacs, or even three at the very most, when someone offers you a Tic Tac.
The Proper Way to Eat a Tic Tac
The bottom line is, there is no one right way to eat a Tic Tac. However, since the polite way to eat a Tic Tac is taking just a couple, a double Tic Tac method is probably the most proper way to eat them. For maximum mouth freshness, make sure to place the Tic Tacs on your tongue and let them sit for a while; do not just chew them up immediately.
While we are on the topic of Tic Tacs, I have some bonus advice for you: make sure to put a little cotton in the container when the box starts to get low. No one likes to listen to you and your jingling Tic Tac box everywhere you go. However, if you are an annoyingly quiet walker and tend to sneak up on folks, it might be appreciated if you allow the Tic Tacs to rattle about in the container when you walk. Much the way people appreciate bells on a , people will appreciate a warning when you come around the corner. cat's collar
