Tic Tac® Continues the Excitement of the Tic Tac UFO Phenomenon with Trip to Space

Custom space vessel filled with Tic Tac® packs to project refreshing messages to extraterrestrials

July 29, 2021
Ferrero U.S.A., Inc. is fanning the excitement and fun speculation surrounding the Tic Tac UFO phenomenon with a trip to space. On August 4, the Tic Tac® brand will be sending a custom vessel into space that will transmit refreshing messages submitted by consumers to help make connections with extraterrestrials. The vessel will also be filled with limited edition packs and enter orbit with the help of aerospace company Sent into Space, the world leader in high altitude balloon flights.

Though officially heading to space for the first time ever next week, Tic Tac® was believed to be spotted in the atmosphere in 2004 by Navy Lt. Commander Alex Dietrich who reported a UFO in the shape of a Tic Tac® breath mint. The newly de-classified video footage of the incident has resulted in worldwide fanfare and additional speculated sightings. The most recent witness account occurred just last month in the United Kingdom spawning continued interest from believers around the globe.

“Tic Tac® has a very strong link to the history of space, having launched the same year that American astronauts landed on the moon in 1969 and the UFO reference that has made news for over 15 years now,” said Noah Szporn, Senior Vice President, Ferrero Sugar Confections North America. “Our fans have been so receptive and excited by the UFO connection, especially in the last few months, that it seemed fitting to send our own Tic Tac® vessel into space containing the universal mints while displaying their personal words into the galaxy.”

They will feature limited edition graphics with phrases that inspire moments of connection prompting a kind, refreshing encounter with our alien friends. The exterior of the vessel will project messages and greetings on a scrolling ticker-tape board. Consumers can go to the Tic Tac® Twitter @tictacusa, Instagram @tictacusa or Facebook @TicTacUSA channels by August 1 to submit their own refreshing messages for a chance to have them projected into the atmosphere, and everyone will be able to purchase the packs with limited edition graphics later this year at major retailers nationwide.
