The story of Hint Mint begins in the late '90s, with the founders Harley Cross and Cooper Bates striving for perfection and seeking to create something beautiful, alive and with style. Hint Mints are more than just candy, more than simple breath aids. They are contemporary accessories, strong as a bull, smooth as silk, sugar-based, and animal free. No gelatin. No aspartame. No animal ingredients. The packaging and presentation are as utilitarian as it is stylish: balance of form and function.
