These Retro-Style Tic Tac Ads Feature Winning Bites of Fun

This nostalgic Tic Tac ad series features the tiny breath mints arranged to look like retro arcade games like Pacman, Arkanoid and Snake as a tribute to the brand's origins way back in 1969.

As compared to most mints, there's something that's way more novel about a Tic Tac, since they're almost like little candies. Their small size also happens to make them very pixel-like, which is perfect for recreating some of the most beloved arcade games. Each of the flavors represents a different game—quite fittingly, the cherry and citrus flavors is assigned to Pacman, the original white mints make a perfect Snake lookalike and a bunch of the multi-color packs assemble a rainbow for Arkanoid. Even though they look to the past for inspiration, the Tic Tac ads are very refreshing.
