I spent several months searching for a breath freshener that was sugar free, not so strong that it would burn a hole through my cheek and not too expensive.
I tried Lifesavers, Smints, Listerine strips, Eclipse flash strips, Altoids and finally, Wrigley’s Eclipse Mints (I prefer the Winterfrost flavor). The lowest price I’ve found is $1.00 for a box of 50 ($0.02 each), but they’re regularly $1.49 ($0.03 each). They taste quite good, and I don’t get the burning sensation in my nose that you get with overly powerful mints. I occasionally miss the sinus-cleansing, but I think they still freshen my breath adequately.
Now I need to stock up.
Update: I still love these mints and have been looking for good deals online for over two years. Until recently I could get them cheaper at the local grocery store even without adding the cost of shipping. Today I was running low and checked on Amazon and I found a great deal. They have a 16-pack of Eclipse mints (16 boxes) for $20.56 with free shipping. That works out to $1.29 a box and there’s no tax.
I love Winterfrost, but I recently tried the peppermint and spearmint flavors. Peppermint wasn’t good, but spearmint was quite tasty. I may get some when my Winterfrost stockpile is depleted.
