Each Tic Tac contains 2 calories and virtually no other nutritional value. Each Tic Tac also has a half gram of carbohydrates, which comes in the form of sugars. Because the amount of sugar in each Tic Tac is less than a half gram, the United States Food and Drug Administration allows them to be labeled as containing "zero" sugar.
Tic Tacs debuted in 1969 with its signature fresh mint flavor. Through the years, Tic Tacs have been available in a number of different flavors, including orange, powermint, wild cherry, wintergreen, cinnamon spice and strawberry fields. Tic Tacs are available in a small clear plastic container that dispenses the Tic Tacs one at a time, holds 36 Tic Tacs and weighs a 1/2 ounce. The "Big Box" version of the candy, which is a larger version of the smaller container, holds 100 Tic Tacs and weighs 1 ounce, while the "Big Pack" holds 200 Tic Tacs and weighs 3.4 ounces.
Tic Tacs are sold in more than 100 countries by Ferrero, which is an Italian brand. The ingredients in Tic Tacs include sugar, malodextrin, artificial and natural flavors, artificial colors, tartaric acid, rice starch, magnesium stearate and carnauba wax.
