Q: There are flecks in my mints. What are they? Are they moldy?Those flecks are what make VerMints so darn tasty – they're the all natural ingredients. Depending on the flavor, it could be a peppermint leaf or a dash 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 Sugar (a fancy name for a simple goodness), Organic Maple Syrup, and Organic Tapioca Syrup 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!) That means your mints are not only chemical-free and great tasting, but helping to 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 anyway?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 (an animal by-product used as a hardening agent – ew.) VerMints contain 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 around here. Our ingredients are clean and true [nongmoproject.org].
