Peppersmith Peppermint Sugar Free Mints 15g X 3
Sugar free mints sweetened with 100% xylitol, a naturally derived ingredient which helps keep teeth healthy.
Flavoured with English peppermint from Hampshire. Each pocket pack contains approximately 25 mints, and each mint contains 0.5g of xylitol.
100% plant based xylitol
Yes, that's right, we only use xylitol to make our mints and gum taste nice and sweet. We know that it sounds a bit funny, but it's actually a clever little ingredient that helps keep your teeth healthy by clearing away bacteria and plaque in the mouth. Even better news, it comes from trees and plants. Hooray.

Real plants not chemical plants
When it comes to the other ingredients in our mints and gum, we like to steer clear of stuff like artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. That's why we use proper British mint and real Sicilian lemons to make them taste so great. Plus we use tomatoes to give our strawberry pastilles their nice pink colour.
Sugar free and low calorie
Luckily, the xylitol that we use to replace sugar in our products has 40% fewer calories than sugar itself. This means that in a whole pack of Peppersmith mints there's only 36 calories. Plus, xylitol has a low GI of 7 so is suitable for diabetics too.
No aspartame. Not now. Not ever.
Aspartame. That nasty artificial sweetener that's in lots of diet fizzy drinks. We don't need it to make our mints and gum taste good and neither do you.
Backed up by science
Don’t just take our word for it, we’re endorsed by lots of dentists across the UK and the Oral Health Foundation. We are also approved by the European Food Safety Authority who have done lots of studies on xylitol and teeth.
Packaging & sustainability
We pride ourselves in trying to be a sustainable as possible. This is not always easy but where we can choose a more sustainable option we will. We are not perfect but we are trying hard to protect this planet we call home. If you have any requests or suggestions regarding our packaging please do let us know.
Goodbye plastic packaging
We've got rid of that silly little bit of plastic around our pocket packs of mints and gum. It was there to keep our packs tamper-proof so we knew that nobody had tinkered with them before you bought them. We've been working really hard to redesign the pack so that it is still tamper-proof whist having no plastic film. No plastic, no waste, no bother.
Sustainable fsc® certified cardboard
Instead of using plastic or unrecyclable wax paper like other mint and gum brands, we use FSC-certified cardboard boxes. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council® ) helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home. This does cost us a bit more, but we think it's worth it and we hope you do too.
Fully recyclable boxes
As well as making sure everything is sourced well, we have made sure all our packaging can be easily recycled at home. From the little pocket packs to the mailer boxes that come through your letterbox, every one of them can be put in your local recycling bin. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
