Q: There are flecks in my mints. What are they? Are they moldy?They are what make VerMints so darn tasty – they are the all natural ingredients. Depending on the flavor, it could be a peppermint leaf or a taste of ginger. Flecks are your friends. If your mints don’t have flecks, they’re likely not natural. Embrace the fleck!
Q: Are VerMints sugar-free?Nope, but they’re sweetened in the very best, most healthful way! We use Organic Crystallized Cane Juice (just a fancy name for Organic Crystallized Cane Sugar). We use Organic Crystallized Cane Juice, Organic Maple Syrup and Organic Tapioca Syurp to sweeten our mints.
Q: Is Organic Sugar better than regular sugar?You bet! Organic sugar is produced without synthetic pesticides and herbicides. (So no chemical residue in your mints. Yes!) No chemicals mean that your mints taste great, are chemical-free, and help reduce the pesticide load on our friendly planet.
Q: Do VerMints combat bad breath or haliotosis?We sure think we do, but we challenge you to do the test. Pop one in (or three if you’ve been noshing on garlic and onions, friend), give someone a smooch, and see if they love VerMints as much as you do.
Q: What does “Kosher” mean any way?Good question! Here’s the deal: contrary to popular belief, Kosher food does not have to be blessed by a rabbi. Kosher means “foods that conform to the regulations of kashrut”, which is a Jewish Law. A Kosher Supervisor reviews the processes and ingredients to make sure they comply with the agreed-upon rules [www.ksakosher.com].
Q: Are VerMints vegan-friendly?They sure are. Most candies and mints are made with gelatin (and animal by-product used as a hardening agent – ew.) VerMints use Gum Tragacanth and Agar instead. Both are plant by-products that keep the mints together without hooves and knuckles.
Q: What does GMO Free mean?GMOs are Genetically Modified Organisms. Being GMO Free means that our mints only have ingredients direct from mother nature; no messing around with chemicals and genetics. Our ingredients are clean and true [nongmoproject.org].
