Including no artificial coloring, preservative or flavors, these mints offer the perfect amount of freshness with a slight zing and do not leave any sugary aftertaste. Delivered in a convenient tin storage container, each box comes with 45 mints.
- Nino Starter
Each mint is only made with a few ingredients, and the formula is noticeably sugar-free and alcohol-free.

Chances are several of them will break during shipping, so you may actually have fewer mints when you open the tin than you’d expect.

An Overview On Organic Mints

While brushing your teeth first thing in the morning is an important habit for keeping your breath free of germs so it smells nice and fresh, your minty toothpaste isn’t designed to last all day. It’s helpful to keep a container of mints in your car or purse for a quick breath refresher as needed. Of course, you’ll want to stick with organic mints that are free of artificial ingredients.

Start by choosing what flavor you like best. Peppermint is the most common mint flavor, hence the name, but other flavors are available as well. For example, you may opt for a flavor like cinnamon. Cinnamon is an excellent choice for anyone who enjoys a spicy mint.

Carefully review the product label to ensure the ingredients are natural. Some mints contain as few as three ingredients that are often Non-GMO Project Verified, kosher, vegan-friendly and gluten-free. Others are Certified USDA Organic, allergen-free and lactose-free.

Check for any extra benefits the organic mints might have to offer. For example, some mints contain caffeine and B vitamins to provide consumers with an energy boost. This is especially helpful in the afternoon when you begin to feel a bit tired, but still have plenty of work left to finish.

Finally, take a look at the container the mints are kept in. Some are designed to be tossed after the mints are gone, while others can be re-purposed. Newman’s Own Organic Mints, Peppermint come in a decorative tin that is perfect for gifting and can be cleaned and reused for a craft project later on.

The Organic Mints Buying Guide

  • Watch for a satisfaction guarantee, so you can request a refund if the organic mints don’t live up to your expectations.
  • Some mints may break during shipping.
  • Reviewers report some manufacturers produce mints with a weird aftertaste that may also leave a coating on the tongue. If you experience this, simply brush your teeth to get rid of the coating and gargle with mouthwash to get rid of the aftertaste.
  • Not all organic mints are sugar-free. Some still contain cane sugar, so make sure you read the ingredient list carefully if you need to watch your sugar intake.
  • Keep an eye on the number of calories per mint. Most organic mints keep this number around 2 or 3, but there are brands with as many as 10 calories per mint.
  • Since organic mints are mostly sold in larger units, you’ll need to determine how many pieces you’re getting for the price. Once you know how much each mint costs, you’ll be able to determine which brand gives you the most for our money.
