Mentos UP2U Superfruit Smasher and Tropical Mixer
Amount: 14 (7 of each)
A pack with no mint in it! I’m sure there are some out there rejoicing (like my mom) because they do not like mint!

Tropical Mixer is a very light pineapple citrus taste that reminds me of Trident Tropical Twist and Orbit Tropical Remix. It’s sad how faint the flavor is. I just took a drink of water and practically got rid of all the flavor in my mouth! There is also a cooling sensation, which is about the only thing going on right now. The gum is much harder than any of the previous UP2U gum, and is orange on one side and yellow on the other.
Superfruit Smasher reminds me of berry flavors. It has more of a kick compared to Tropical Mixer, but the flavor is still on the light side. There is a berry cooling sensation, which is different than normal since you can really feel it once it touches your tongue or cheek. The gum is softer than Tropical Mixer and it is light pink on one side and dark pink on the other.
In general, I feel that both flavors are light. I’m not choking on fruit flavor, which happens with thickly flavored gum. There could be more flavor, the cooling sensation is what is riding on the flavor and not the flavor itself. The flavor does not last as long as I would expect. This is very different than the intense flavors that I have come to expect from Mentos. However, the gum keeps a good texture and consistency and can be chewed for hours.
