Mint packaging

I often like the packaging on mints, especially if they come in little metal tins because then you can justify them for storing needles and buttons and tiny things. I bought this pack in Sweden cause I liked the red, white and gold (and it is the EXACT right size to hold 3 AA batteries so my spares have a stylish home)...



I'm keeping my eye open for these as well...








I like this Delft tin for Fortuin Wilhemena mints....



St. Claire's mints have some nice looking tins and are 100% vegetarian.

Oral Fixation have very slim sleek tins (like iMint Nano)...



I'd love to have their 6pack which comes as a boxed set. I like the look of the Sugar Free Tibet ones with the mountains and the Tibetan prayer flags on the customised inner wax paper. 10% of the profits go towards a non-violent solution to the Chinese-Tibetan conflict. And they even have a blog!

a few of the sandwich shops in edinburgh stock the penguin mints - they shouldn't be too tricky for you to get!

I have purchased the Oral Fixation mints in cinnamon (they have a racier name for the flavour) - the great thing is that the tins make wonderful business card holders!

I too can chalk myself up as a sucker for mint packaging. My only complaint being that so many of them now contain aspartame. Ick. Sadly I abandoned a pack from Finland in the most darling tin the other day for that very reason...

Hi Anon, thanks for the tip, I can't be trusted in a sandwich shop (wheat intolerance) but I'll get my friends to look out for them.

Hi Emira, I know what you mean, aspartame is in so much these days, if a tin was nice enough and not expensive I'd buy it and throw away the mints, how un-green is that! But they usually aren't cheap so no dilemma.

Love love love the last supper mints! I hope you'll find some Swedish/Scandinavian design that you like on my blog in the future!
