Laufen near Basel, January 16, 2015 – Ricola Glacier Mint combines the tried and tested Ricola blend of 13 herbs with fresh peppermint and promises an intense mint taste sensation. The new flavor has strong refreshing notes and stands out thanks to softly accented peppermint enriched with a hint of menthol. Ricola Glacier Mint clears the airways and tempts with its natural taste sensation inspired by the popular 13-herb blend.
The transparent, emerald green color of the herb drops reflects the purity and freshness of an alpine glacier and calls to mind the natural origins of the peppermint. As with all its herb drops, Ricola places great emphasis on the organic cultivation of the herbs. The peppermint used in Ricola Glacier Mint is grown on the fertile soils of a glacier moraine in the Swiss Alps and is cultivated exclusively by a single family of herb growers. Peppermint contains menthol essential oil and has long been used for colds, sneezes and sore throats, due to its soothing and cooling effect. Ricola Glacier Mint is therefore the perfect companion at the cold time of year and always ensures long-lasting enjoyment.
Ricola Glacier Mint is sugar-free and available in both resealable pocket boxes and classic bags. Thanks to its handy format, the box fits in every purse and is particularly practical when travelling – the natural freshness of an alpine glacier on the go!
