Pros: Sweet, nostalgic, convenient, low in calories
Cons: No nutritional value.
Summary: Handy and flavorful hard candies come individually wrapped for added freshness and convenience.
I have been enjoying Starlight Mints ever since I was a child. Although these mints come in different flavors and colors, the Starlight Peppermints are the ones I have enjoyed the most over the years. Some of the other varieties available include wintergreen, spearmint, cinnamon, and fruit flavors.
This 2 pound tub of Office Snax Starlight Peppermints gives me enough of these minty hard candies to last for quite a while. I use this disposable plastic container to fill one of the candy dishes in my home, and leave the remainder of the container in the kitchen where we can simply reach in and grab a quick snack if desired. I prefer to purchase these in the tub, however they are also available in plastic bags as well.
These classic red and white hard candy discs are great for those times when I need just a bit of something sweet, without filling myself up. They are great as a breath mint, an after dinner mint, or for anytime I need just a little something sweet.
These candies are individually wrapped so they are also convenient to take along with me wherever I go. I often carry a couple of these mints in my coat pocket, and sometimes in my car for those times when I need a breath refresher or something to cure a dry mouth when there is nothing handy to drink. Individual wrappings also help to retain the freshness of these candies.
Another nice thing about these nostalgic candies is that there are 3 pieces per serving, and this only contains 20 calories. This means that snacking on one or two of these from time to time won't add a lot of pounds to your waistline. This is great for those of us who could stand to lose a little weight. Of course, if you are looking for nutritional content, you won't find it here. Since these are mainly made of sugar, you aren't going to find a lot of nutrition here. Still, when I can pop a sweet treat into my mouth without wrecking my diet, they can't be all bad.
