A change of Tac Tics


tac tical redisgn.jpgDriving to work this morning I found myself musing about Tic Tac packets. They have been the exact shape and size they are for as long as I can remember (a long time), all very well if they were the perfect design (like a VW Van or suchlike) but for the whole period they have had a significant and recurring problem ... namely:

The best way to determine if you still have available minty content is to rattle the plastic box, however the box is the exact depth of two Tic Tacs wedged together between the front and back (and this happens surprisingly often). Should you become aware that you still have mints left because you do not trust the auditory (or lack thereof) information, then a smart flick will normally free the confectionery, but you have to realise the need to double check.

What I wondered though was how many Tic Tacs I have inadvertently thrown away over the years because I relied on the shake without a visual second check!

Hardly important in the grand scheme of things but I thought I'd mention it. (I thought about petitioning for change but decided this might not be a huge public concern, plus of course the danger of the problem being resolved by reducing the size of the mints).


Can I just say - that pun in the title is amazing! :D

I thank you sir :-)
