Growing up in the Philippines, Mentos has been a staple in our everyday lives–from passing it along during class time and keeping at least one roll in every bag, to chewing it on the go and dropping it into soda to make it explode. This makes one wonder, what makes Mentos the top-of-mind soft candy brand? The answer is simple: Mentos has a history of staying fresh and keeping us fresh. In 1932, the van Melle brothers came up with the idea for a peppermint-flavored candy. Little did they know that Mentos would spark the start of a fresh new world. A simple pop of Mentos candy not only freshens your mood but leaves your breath feeling fresh and clean. From their classic mint flavor to their fun selection of refreshing fruit flavors–Mentos is bringing us fresh ways to take on the day!

Just as we were all settling into our new normal, we’re gearing up for yet another shift to the next normal. We all have had to find ways to deal with our daily challenges and stress, and, for many of us, this meant turning to music! We’ve seen this through TikTok’s boom during the pandemic and we are certain that Filipinos will never fail to find the latest dance craze and trending songs on the platform; turning to this platform to deal with our anxieties, find community, and connect more authentically with artists. So, how is Mentos helping us stay fresh today?
