I was shopping at Home Depot today, and when I got back in my car my mouth was very dry and I had no bottled water stashed away. I searched through my purse looking for a breath mint, and found a packet of Listerine Pocketpaks in the FreshBurst flavor. I had forgotten that I had even purchased this, but it was a nice surprise!
The Pocketpak consists of a small plastic case, measuring 1 1/4″ by just under 2″. They are distributed by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare, in Morris Plains New Jersey.
The case is made of a thin plastic, and the back of the case is a solid light green color, while the top half of the front is a light transparent green. There is a tiny lid that has a plastic tab on the edge, you can easily pull the lid open to reveal sliver thin pieces of breath freshener strips. The pack contains 24 oral care strips.
The strips are easy to remove, the front of the case is curved slightly, and your thumb or finger fits into the small groove and you can apply slight pressure and pull out just one at a time. They are transparent and measure 1 1/4″ by 7/8″.
Once the strips hit my tongue, they immediately start to melt, giving my breath a strong freshening affect. They even help un-stuff a stuffy nose! These are strong minty breath strips. In about 6 seconds these are totally dissolved leaving my breath feeling incredible, even fresher than after a good tooth brushing!
As a kid, we always had original Listerine mouthwash in our home, and these remind me of the strong intense flavor that I remember from using Listerine, except they have a minty taste. They start working immediately too! My reaction was, “whoa that’s strong!”
These claim to kill germs, give you instant fresh breath, and they are sugar free. They definitely are very refreshing, they do freshen the breath instantly, with freshness that lasts for about 30 minutes.

I would definitely buy Listerine Pocketpaks again. You can buy these in single, 3 pack or 5 pack quantities. They also come in other flavors, such as Cool Mint, Cinnamon, and Fresh Citrus. The three pack units cost around $4.00.
They are also discreet, and will slide easily right into your jeans pocket. Sometimes you want fresh breath right away, but you don’t want to be sucking on a breath mint for 5 minutes, these are the perfect solution!
