MENTOS BECOMES A REALITY

In 1932, brothers Michael and Pierre Van Melle discovered the recipe for soft fruit caramels which they soon launched under the name “Fruitella”. Inspired by this product, the brothers created a caramel with a peppermint taste and dragee coating. They called this product Mentos, which sparked the beginning of a Fresh New World!
