Wrigley's Eclipse / Review

At the moment tin can packaging is making a huge comeback and also allot of new interesting packaging designs are coming with this trend. Enought about the trend now about this packaging, this tin can have a quite intersting design it have a great lid design that make is easy to open and close. It's for sure one of the better mints packaging out there. Allot of them still uses simple plain paper wrapping which isn't a great packaging, cause its not greatly sealed and also falls appart easily. While this is a great sturdy packaging and also looks well, and cause its made of metal it can be recycled easily.
The mints are kind like Fishermen's Friend and actually have the same size, shapes and also taste like. However I like this mint because the strength of the mint is good and very strong like I want. The most strong mint in the Netherlands are either the Fishermen's friend or Smint. Smint got only tiny mints in a plastic dispenser packaging, while Fishermen's Friend uses a paper sack like packaging with a special treated inside of a plastic aluminum material.

But Eclipse mints are not for sale in the Netherlands though it's a special delivery all the way from Hong Kong. The amount of Wrigley products have drops actually in the Netherlands while I really like their gums which I specially buy in Germany, their gums are much better than Sportlife and also have a longer lasting taste. When I was in Germany I could be chewing just one piece of gum the whole day and found it still have flavour in the gum. However I hope in the future they would bring more of their product like this mint to the Netherlands, cause actually there are not that much companies into the mints today but more into the chewing gums. The mints make up just a small part in the candy department.

Printing on sponge

Well am learning this myself though but its quite usefull as it's not a technique that is openly published how to do actually. But today I done several tries and even learned few extra things along the way. But mainly learned this so I dont have to pay stupid expensive prices most of the companies ask when for doing this. However I do need to see how i could cure the inkt cause it need to be heaten up so it won't wash off when there is accidentally get water poured over it.
