Tic-Tac follows Skittles in setting its sights on outer space
The Ferrero-owned Tic Tac brand has responded to recent hype surrounding Tic Tac UFO sightings with taking the famous mint series into outer space, writes Neill Barston.
In the wake of Jeff Bezos enjoying an intergalactic experience last week that spawned a new variety of Skittles, the much-appreciated Tic Tac brand will be seen as as a Tic-Tac shaped vessel is launched into orbit and will be set to transmit refreshing messages submitted by consumers on August 4th.
The vessel will also be filled with limited edition packs and enter orbit with the help of aerospace company Sent into Space, the world leader in high altitude balloon flights.
In addition, the limited-edition packs will include fan-favourite flavours, Freshmint, Orange, and Fruit Adventure, and feature phrases to prompt a kind, refreshing connection with our alien friends.
Upon landing back on Earth, 100 lucky fans can get their hands on a pack that went to space by following instructions to come on the Tic Tac social channels. Everyone will be able to purchase the limited-edition Tic Tac mints later this year at major retailers.
Consumers can go to the Tic Tac social channels by 1 August to submit their own refreshing messages for a chance to have them projected into the atmosphere.
