Nothing can ruin a romantic mood more than bad breath. I mean, who wants their date to lean in for a kiss and smell the stench of halitosis?
This Valentine's Day, you can be prepared with Binaca. No, not the drops you used to sprinkle on your tongue from way back when. Binaca is back with a fresh new look and colorful, sleek packaging to launch their new AeroBlast and FastBlast breath fresheners.
Binaca AeroBlasts are a new generation of breath sprays in a slim cylindrical tube, while Binaca FastBlasts deliver freshness in small non-aerosol pump bottles. Both styles are convenient and compact enough to stash in a purse or pocket for quick, easy access on the go. And there are three yummy flavors to choose from: Peppermint (my personal fave), Spearmint, and Cinnamint.
I was fortunate enough to try out the Peppermint and Spearmint AeroBlasts. The minty taste was crisp and clean. They worked instantaneously and lasted for hours - the quality I've come to expect from a brand that has been around for 75 years. One of my favorite things about the new Binaca is the taglines. Fun sayings like "Pepper spray repels bad guys. Peppermint spray attracts good guys." and "Tulips are no match for two lips" are flirty and fun. I would much rather have a quick spritz of Binaca than suck on a mint or chew gum for ten minutes or more to have the same effect.
So, go ahead and indulge in those garlic mashed potatoes and blooming onion. Just have some Binaca on hand to turn your smooches from stale to sweet.
