Mentos 1932, Mentos candy was first created in the Netherlands in 1932, and as of 2011, the snack is sold in over 100 countries throughout the world. The classic, mint-flavored roll was the first edition to the Mentos line, but you can now purchase six additional flavors — as well as Mentos gum. Mentos candy varies in nutritional value depending on the flavor, but is generally low in calories and nutrients.
All foods provide a certain amount of energy to the body, and each food’s energy value can be measured in calories. All Mentos rolls contain 10 calories per serving except for the Mentos Tropical Roll flavor, which contains 10.5. Each Mentos roll weighs 37.5 g and contains 14 pieces of candy.
Mentos rolls contain a small dose of fat. All Mentos flavors contain less than 0.2 g of fat per serving, a negligible amount for achieving your daily fat requirement. The body needs a moderate amount of fat for energy and to insulate vital organs, and the average adult should get between 44 to 78 g each day, depending on activity level. Mentos also contain a small amount of saturated fat, a specific type of fat that is highly related to coronary heart disease.
All Mentos flavors contain 2.5 g of carbohydrate per serving with the exception of the Berry Blast version, which contains just 2.4 g. Sugar, a specific type of carbohydrate that is used as a sweetener, ranges from 1.9 g per serving in the Tropical, Berry Blast, Fruit and Sour Mix rolls to 2.0 g in the Mint, Spearmint and Strong Mint flavors. It is difficult to find sweet products that are low in sugar, but women should limit their sugar intakes to 100 calories each day, while men should consume no more than 150 calories of sugar, according to the American Heart Association.
