Ever tried to grab a Tic Tac from the box and had them all dump into your hand? It’s not the worst thing in the world, but it is annoying. As food blog Food Beast points out, the Tic Tac box itself is actually built to distribute a single breath mint — if you know how to do it right.
Instead of just carelessly shaking out a handful of mints, this method requires you to shake the box upside down, grab the lip of the box, and then pull the box back. The result is a single Tic Tac waiting for you on the inside of the box lid.
