I bought the Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Breath Strips for free, on one of my visits to the drugstore.  I got a packet with 3 paks of 24.

The Cool Mint flavor breath strips are in green plastic containers, that have a small piece of plastic that lifts up at the top.  It lifts down to reveal the breath strips.  They are an extremely thin piece of green, that looks just like sticky tape.  They measure an inch and a quarter, by three quarters of an inch.I had the first one inbetween my fingers and was about to put in onto my tongue.  It partly stuck to my bottom lip, and started dissolving on it.  I was a little concerned about it and pushed it up with my tongue.  It then went to the roof of my mouth, which is the top of my denture plate, as I have full dentures.  It stuck there for a few seconds and as my tongue kept going to it, it finally dissolved.That first taste is a 'WOW'.  The cool mint hit me, and I could feel it clearing my nostrils, as well as leaving my mouth, ice cold fresh.  These maybe the thinest product I have ever seen, but they certainly know how to give you an instant reaction to them.  An hour later my mouth still tasted minty.

Since the first taste I have been using them for a month now, and find that I am used to the strong flavor.

I did give one to my husband, Len to try, and he hated it.  He thought it to be way too overpowering.  He prefers his tic tac mints.

I keep a pak on my desk, and also one in my purse.  I really like to have one after drinking coffee, or eating anything that has garlic in it.

Regular Listerine has got to be one of the most aweful tasting things ever made to be purposely put in your mouth. The one and only time I tried it, I almost puked. So I was not so keen on trying Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Breath Strips but my wife bought some for herslef and did not like them so I ended up with them. All I can say good about them is that they do not taste horrible as a matter of fact I did not think they had any flavor at all. It just felt weird until it dissovled entirely and then it was like I had put nothing in my mouth. I can't smell a thing but my wife kept saying it did not help. I guess I really need to try that pro health stuff others keep saying is good. Or maybe I can just lay off the garlic and onions or at least not eat them both at the same time. No, I do not want to do that now. I guess I need to find something that can really kill some strong oder because Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Breath Strips surely do nothing at all.

If you like a strong mint taste in your mouth you will like this

By 

from Puyallup, WA

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

I remember trying the Listerine cool mint strips years ago and I was surprised at how strong they were. When you put the strip in your mouth and breath in, a strong cool scent goes through you mouth, throat and nasal passages. It definitely is a lot stronger than other mints or gums out there. I will say that these are a little better tasting than the Listerine mouthwash, but if you don't like the mouthwash you won't like these. The Listerine strips are so handy to have in your purse, car or at home. The container is really small yet it fits a lot of strips in it. In fact it is so small you could fit it in your pocket and barely feel it in there. I like these because I hate having bad breath and these really help with that. Other gums and mints last a very short time, but this one seems to linger in your mouth longer. You can buy these in single packs or in bulk. I just bought some more of these the other day to use. They are strong, but they work.

Gives your mouth a clean feeling

By 

from USA

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

There's not much I like about these listerine strips, other than that if your mouth just feels completely disgusting after eating something really pungent or you just have a weird taste in your mouth, this will definitely mask that taste. I wouldn't say it's completely comparable to rinsing out your mouth with actual listerine, or brushing your teeth, but it does somewhat replicate the feeling by covering your whole mouth with that same taste. It doesn't really mix all that well with food, in fact I find it kind of weird to eat a bag of chips and then be bombarded with this minty taste afterward, so I think these aren't really as satisfying as they're advertised to be. Also, using them feels a bit weird too. You're supposed to place it on your tongue and then let it melt until it eventually dissolves. Personally, it feels like I'm swallowing toothpaste or listerine, which I've always been taught not to do, so it's just awkward. My suggestion is that if you use these only after you've already brushed your teeth or rinsed out your mouth and it feels clean, but you just want that minty-fresh feeling. Otherwise, I'd say it's much more practical to just chew a piece of spearmint-flavored gum for 5 minutes after lunch. You'll get a better result.

Give me a mint instead...

By 

from USA

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

I was excited about an on the go product, but after trying these out I can honestly say I will stick to simple breath mints instead. I thought they left an unusual feeling in your mouth and did not like the texture that they had while dissolving in your mouth. Not only do you still have to spit, but you feel the need to continue to spit. These are not with the ease of use and the end result that I expected. Not an enjoyable experience even for a mouthwash product. I would rather use typical liquid mouthwash than these pocket packs based on the ease of use and the feel, texture and taste that they have in your mouth. I was not impressed with this product and will not be using them again. I had a friend of mine who did like having the option for using these while they were out in town, but I would still not. I carry a travel size of mouthwash in my purse instead. Worth a try, but not a staple item in my household.

Would Definitely Not Try Again

By 

from USA

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

Fresh breath is important to me so I always keep some kind of breath mint. While stopping to pick up a pack of mints, I noticed Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips beside the mints. I decided that I would give them a try. As soon as I put it in my mouth, it took my breath. Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips has an overwhelming mouth wash taste that burnt my mouth. I couldn't handle it and had to spit it out before it had completely dissolved. I felt as if I was going to get sick to my stomach. I think that this would be a good product if it weren't so strong. I do have to say that although I do not like this product, it will definitely take care of any bad breath issues. I did not like Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips and will not be purchasing them again. I myself would not recommend Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips to anyone.

Very handy product.

By 

from La Rue, OH

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips in a wonderful invention and a very handy product to have. The pack is small and fits easily in your purse or even your pocket. Take along when you go on a dinner date so you can have kissable breath regardless of what you eat. Or take to work with you so you can freshen you breath after a spicy lunch so your coworkers do not have to endure the bad breath that comes after that. Whenever you need to freshen your breath, just stick one of these strips on your tongue and let it dissolve. The flavor is incredibly strong at first, but hang in there. It will lessen. Once the strip is completely dissolved, your breath will smell minty fresh. The container is very convenient. It holds 24 strips and it lets you discreetly freshen your breath no matter where you are. I carry them with me everywhere I go. It really is that effective. Never suffer from bad breath again! I highly recommend this product!

Fresh breath in a quick minute

By 

from USA

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

Listerine pocket packs are great for fresh breath really fast. This product does not have as harsh of a taste as the regular. This product is also easy to carry than a bottle of regular Listerine. I use this product, at my work because I am always talking to people of the public. No one wants to try and get a price quote for something that they need without fresh breath. You will not get a good price quote if your breath stinks because the vendor will want to get away from you quickly. I have given these to my coworkers because they have bad breath. This product is my favorite fresh fresher because you o not have to wait a long time to get first breath. I was recommended this product by a friend when we were on field exercise , because we did not have a lot of time to brush our teeth. I think it was because I was in the same fighting hole and I was stinking him out. I know now with this product I can carry on a productive conversation without someone what to get away from me. My children enjoy these strips because it is easier for them to use. They love the feeling of fresh breath because the have to talk to their friends at school. So if you are looking for fresh breath the reach for this trusted product.

I love these

By 

from TX

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

Whether I am stepping into a meeting or going on a date with my hubby, I always have Listerine PocketPaks Oral Care Strips available. They are the perfect refresher that my mouth needs. I am actually not a fan of other Listerine products but I do buy these all the time and recommend them to all my family and friends. They instantly work and melt in your mouth. They have a cooling mint taste and offer long lasting results. I love the convenience of carrying in your pocket or desk drawer for times where brushing your teeth is not an option. These are perfect for the entire family, my kids hate brushing and flossing but love these. They are very affordable and I see them for sale everywhere. I love having this product with me throughout the day because I work in the public and my appearance is a big first impression. My lunch is not always the healthiest and I cannot let my breath be a reflection of that. I take one everyday after lunch and I feel confident when meeting new people and making public appearances.

These freshen breath and work pretty well

By 

from Greenville, SC

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

These PocketPaks actually work pretty well! I like them because they work quickly (as soon as they touch your tongue!) and effectively. If you don't like to chew gum these are a great alternative as well. Or if you're going into a meeting or somewhere where gum is now allowed they are great. Also it's nice that you don't have to chew anything (like a mint). These little packets are so small that they can easily fit into your purse or pocket (just like the name). I don't like that the company adds food coloring to them (why??) but other than that these little things work pretty well to freshen your breath when you need it! I like the cool mint ones better than the cinnamon. Beware that they are pretty strong. I wouldn't give them to a child. These do contain artificial sweeteners so be aware of that. But as far as doing what they are supposed to do these things do work well, are reasonably priced, and are super portable.

Tastes fresh, but I'd prefer a mint

By 

from USA

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

Although the flavor of the strips mimic the taste of listerine, they don't seem to leave that fresh smell or feeling lingering in your mouth like the mouthwash does. The mouthwash can last several hours, but these seem to dissipate after a few minutes. Thankfully these strips are not quite as strong and do not have the same burning sensation as the mouthwash does, so that part is good though. Perhaps this just has the flavor of the mouthwash without the actual medicine or maybe it is just not enough of it to do the job? Although it is interesting to try it a couple of times, I must say the novelty of the sensation wears off quickly. It is a little odd to put something dry and papery in your mouth and then feel it turn gummy and dissolve. I would rather keep mint flavored candies in my purse for those times when I feel I want fresher breath or to mask a strong meal I just ate.

Cool Mint Is Extremely Cool

By 

from Portland, TX

Comments about Listerine PocketPaks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips:

The Listerine Pocket Paks Cool Mint Oral Care Strips were one-of-a-kind when they first came out and in a sense, they are still one-of-a-kind because they were the original mint strip on the market. These mint strips are extremely convenient, as you do not have to chew, swallow, or dissolve anything. All you have to do is place the strip on your tongue and it instantly dissolves, refreshing your breath as it disintegrates.
There is no doubt that it fresheners your breath and makes your mouth feel clean. The downside to this is that there is an overpowering mint taste which remains in your mouth for a long time. This would not bother me so much if I were a mint fan or if it was not such a strong taste. One thing I would recommend is to take a drink of water before and after you use one of these strips because it tastes especially unpleasant when mixed with other flavors.
