Have you heard of Rio Mints? I haven’t before this week but once I tasted the mints, I couldn’t stop eating more. haha but I’m getting waaay ahead of myself.
SoFA tied up with Rio Mints for the brand’s launch last Tuesday, May 3, 2011 at Robot Bar, Makati. 6 students were asked to create pieces for the event that showcased the colors of the products. Candy + Fashion = Perfection. haha Went to the event with fellow bloggers and enjoyed the food, the show and of course, the mints!
The brand launched their six flavors: Burgundy Grape, Green Tea & Peppermint, Honey Melon, Cool Peach Jasmine, Pink Grapefruit and Juicy Lychee! My personal favorites are the Honey Melon and Juicy Lychee. Although I have yet to try Grape and Peach. 🙂 These mints are addicting though! You really taste the fruity flavors but at the same time the mint feels really fresh. Plus, check out the packaging. It’s gorgeous. AND. you slide it to open. how sosyal! 😀
Here are some shots. 🙂
