As if the minty taste of Tic Tacs weren’t already refreshing enough, the brand has teamed up with Sprite to launch a Tic Tac that also captures the lemon-lime sizzle of the soft drink.

New Tic Tac Sprite mints have flavors inspired by the soft drink, of course — but The Ferrero Group, the maker of Tic Tacs, says the mints provide the “tingly, refreshing feeling” you would expect from a combination of the two brands.

The limited-edition flavor is in stores now, although Tic Tac does not say how long it will be around. You’ll find it in three sizes: 50-count (.84 ounce), 60-count (1 ounce) and 200-count (3.4 ounces).

Tic Tac Sprite follows the launch of Tic Tac Coca-Cola, which hit stores in 2020. Both flavors are the result of a partnership with The Coca-Cola Company.

While those were also a limited edition, the flavor is actually still in stores now. The Ferrero Group says in a news release that these Tic Tacs give consumers an “incomparable taste experience which combines the refreshment of Coca-Cola with the iconicity of Tic Tac.”

While soda-flavored Tic Tacs are certainly unique, the brand also has other non-mint varieties, offering single flavors like Orange and Freshmints and mixes like Strawberry & Cream and Fruit Adventure.

Soda flavors are actually having a bit of a moment right now, with Blue Bell recently launching a Dr Pepper ice cream.

Dr Pepper Float ice cream blends vanilla ice cream with Dr Pepper-flavored sherbet for a much-less-messy way to enjoy a Dr Pepper float. You can eat it in a bowl or atop a cone. Or, use it in a float anyway in place of vanilla ice cream for an even stronger Dr Pepper flavor.

The ice cream is a limited-time offering, but Blue Bell says it will be in stores through 2024 in both pints and half-gallons. It is available in the 23 states where you can buy other Blue Bell flavors. You can also order it online and have it shipped right to your door.
