Weymouth, MA (November 16, 2015) - With holidays comes temptation toward unhealthy food choices—from the staple casseroles and mashed potatoes to fattening pies and Christmas-themed candies. American mint company VerMints offers people who can’t resist sweet temptation a healthy (and tasty) alternative to sugary sweets with their all-natural, vegan, and certified organic mints.
“We choose organic ingredients with a simple ingredient index, so our customers feel comfortable and content with every aspect,” says VerMints CEO Gary Rinkus, who believes that the holiday spirit should contain good-for-you ingredients, as well as good tidings.
Rinkus continues: “While most breath mint and chewing gum ingredients include GMO components, carcinogenic sugars, toxic preservatives and artificial flavors and colors, VerMints’ ingredients include organic cane sugar, organic mint leaves, organic maple syrup and natural oils, depending on the flavor.” In the US alone, 1.76 billion candy canes are produced each year. At 110 calories per 1oz candy cane, that’s a mint that packs punch – to waistlines. VerMints have 10 calories per 3 Peppermint mints and none of the artificial flavors or colors.
In addition to being a healthier treat, VerMints are also great breath-fresheners – perfect for kissing under the mistletoe. Beginning November 16, 2015, VerMints encourages customers to share who they’d like to kiss under the mistletoe this season on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter along with the hashtag #iwannakissthis to enter to win one minty grand prize: a year’s supply of VerMints for the person they want to kiss. (The gift that keeps on giving!).
The first VerMints were made on a stovetop in a small kitchen in Bellows Falls, Vermont, in 2000. The goal, to make a simple and true mint. Over the next six years, VerMints introduced five more flavors: Cinnamon, Wintergreen, Gingermint, Chai, and Cafe Express. In 2012, it became a certified organic company. Inside every VerMints tin is a headstrong commitment to a 100% all-natural, organic product. Their manufacturing facility is non-GMO, certified gluten-free, nut-free, and conforms to kosher standards, and no animal products are included. www.VerMints.com
