Wikipedia: Tic Tac
Tic Tac (officially styled as “tic tac”) is a brand of small, hard mints, consisting of 94.5% sugar, manufactured by the Italian confectioner Ferrero, and are available in a variety of flavors in over 100 countries.

Tic Tacs were first produced in 1969. They are usually sold in small transparent plastic boxes with a flip-action living hinge lid. Originally, Tic Tacs were dyed specific colors for different flavors, although in many countries the transparent plastic boxes are colored but the actual Tic Tacs are white.
