About Altoids Sours
Although Altoids are popular for their line of curiously strong mints, it is hardly the only thing the company makes. For example, for about 10 years, the company had a line of candy called Altoids Sours; however, that product in no longer in production. Strong in flavor like the mints, Altoids Sours came in a round tin and featured a multitude of fruit flavors, including apple, lime, mango, raspberry, and tangerine. The tins hold 1.76 ounces of the candy, which equates to about 50 pieces per tin. Although empty Altoids tins make for popular collector's items, many others actually seek out the tins that are factory sealed and filled with candy. Another item that is no longer in production but are highly sought after by collectors and can connoisseurs is Altoids Gum. This sugar-free chewing gum featured a number of different flavors, including sour apple and sour cherry as well as cinnamon, peppermint, spearmint, and wintergreen. Discontinued or still in production, Altoids products are part of the large inventory available on eBay. If you are looking for curiously strong flavors, whether in sour candy, gum, mints, or strips, Altoids delivers.
