Tic Tac Homer Simpson Donut Flavor
Taste test: I don't normally review Tic Tac flavors, but as soon as I saw Homer Simpson's face on the front of this package, a review of it was never in doubt!
These weren't your usual Tic Tacs. They changed the shape of the package from the trademark rectangular one to a curvy shape, but they kept a similar locking flip-lid to allow the eater to easily spill some Tic Tacs into the hand when wanted and avoid spilling them all over the place when not wanted. They also enlarged the package significantly, with the Nutrition Facts indicating that there were 200 pieces inside. (I didn't count them to confirm.) The pieces were all the Simpsons shade of yellow, with Homer's face on each one in some sort of edible black ink, displaying various expressions. Unfortunately, the face was partially cut off on some pieces, so we're talking a typical Simpsons level of quality control.
If I'd been handed these blindly, not knowing about the intended Donut flavor or any association with Homer Jay Simpson, I doubt I would have figured out that it was supposed to be taste like donuts. But it was a good taste, sweet and mildly minty, reasonably like a sweet donut if you don't think about it too much.
