Hershey today (9 November) announced the launch of a range of sugar-free mints called Ice Breakers Frost.

The US confectionery company said the extension to its Ice Breakers mints range is the "only mint coated in an intense combination of xylitol, cooling and flavour crystals".

Ice Breakers Frost will be available in two varieties - Wintercool and peppermint.

"Ice Breakers Frost mints are designed for those who are looking for a strong mint, but don't want to sacrifice taste. The mints feature the same great flavor of our core Ice Breakers mints, which is then frosted with a combination of xylitol, cooling and flavor crystals for a uniquely powerful taste and texture," said Anna Lingeris, a spokeswoman for Ice Breakers Frost mints at Hershey.
