Mentos is launching its new packaging for Mentos mints with college football-themed television ads. The company will air 20 animated spots that feature Mentos marching out of their original roll packaging and into the new Mentos box. According to a news release, the mints march to the tune of some of the best-known football fight songs and marches. The ads were created by Cincinnati's Barefoot Advertising.
