Ice Breakers (candy)

Ice Breakers is a brand of gum and disc-shaped mint candy currently made by The Hershey Company. They were first produced by Nabisco in 1996, then acquired by Hershey in 2000. They come in several flavors, including peppermint, wintergreen, cinnamon, fruit sours (made up of a mixture of 4 sour flavors: pink lemonade, apple, tangerine, and watermelon), berry sours (a mix of 3 flavors: berry splash, strawberry, and raspberry lemonade), and tropical sours (a mix of 4 flavors: tangerine passion, lime coconut, peach dragonfruit, and mango margarita). The candies are generally white in color and speckled with other colors to indicate their flavor. These candies are sugar-free, instead using Sorbitol as a sweetener.

Ice Breakers mints are sold in round cases, approximately 3 in (7.6 cm) in diameter and .6 in (2 cm) in height. These cases were originally made of aluminum and had two hinged plastic flaps on top, a larger one labeled "To Share" and a smaller one "Not to Share". They are now (as of mid 2006) made entirely out of plastic, and some have only the one larger opening. All cases depict the fruit flavor contained inside.

There is also a type of Ice Breaker mint named "Liquid Ice". Manufactured in Japan, they are small, spherical gel pellets that, as they melt in your mouth, secrete a flavoured liquid. The Liquid Ice candies are often criticized for having a somewhat bitter flavor.

Recently debuted was the new Ice Breakers brand chewing gum: Ice Breakers Ice Cubes. Ice Cubes come in several flavors: peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen, bubble gum, Dragonfruit Freeze, Sours (3 flavors: pink lemonade, apple and watermelon), Berry Sours, Watermelon Kiwi and Raspberry Sorbet.
