Believe it or not, the history of mints dates all the way back to Ancient Egypt. Thousands of years ago, civilization invented the first ever breath mint. The pellet-style refresher is thought to have been a combination of myrrh, cinnamon, frankincense, and honey. It wasn’t until years and years later during the reign of King George III that the Victorians created the first commercial candy made out of peppermint oils. During the 1950s, the trend made it over to America with the treats being used as a way to freshen breath. The pellets are now extremely popular worldwide.
