I went to the shop to buy big boxes of mints (the size of the mintalist box) and I realized that they don't put labels on anymore ! Just wrapped in a plastic thing and when you remove it, just a clear box.. I will go to a bigger shop to see if all the boxes are like that..

That stinks Alex. I cannot find them local either. If I am correct, the Tic Tacs are called Big Pack Size? Anyway, I think they are 49 grams like the other box, Amazon has large boxes of them here:

http://www.amazon.com/Tic-Tac-Pack-Fruit......big+pack

They may be at CVS or Walgreens, I have to check also. It would also give me a chance to buy some extra colors for my collection. I know they have 200 quantity different tub size at Walmart now. They look like they are going through major changes. Best get the labels while we can! Please post back anyone when you find a lower 48 chain store for us. Performers helping performers.

That being said, I just want to say Peter has been top notch with answers to my questions. He is a great help and is there when you need him. I have given him great headaches and he went above and beyond the call across the pond to help me.

Well it looks like the Big Packs are actually only 1 oz. There does not appear to be any large size tic tacs on line. I will hit some stores in the wee hours tonight such as CVS to see if I can match up my container which says 49 gms. Google it and nothing comes up. Smile

Called "Big Boxes"

This is the European version of the correct size needed:

https://shop.gunz.cc/Shop.aspx?Command=S......60375311

Still nothing shows up on Google as far as on line ordering in the USA. I just want the label (the mentalist in me) but would not mind a few assorted color mints. Looks like USA stores do not carry them. Smile

Just received this today. The h***ge fell off. Unfortunately it will cost you a label to open it up and fix it. Now it fell off again, and I'm out of labels. Disapointed? Yes, I was hoping for better way of h***ing the f***. At least in the version I received, it's simply too unstable to use for paying customers.

PM sent to Uday. And thank you for the kind offer. Thanks also to "Decomposed" for the attempts at helping me in my situation! Major kudos!!! Yes I have been searching for same sized boxes of Tic Tacs without any luck. The boxes are close but noticeably smaller. Honestly there are so many various types of mints out there now that I didn't really think of it as any kind of problem.

I must admit that the main thing stopping me getting this is that it does not come in the size of tic tacs readily available in the UK. If I have to buy tic tacs online then this simply isn't going to fly because people pick up their tic tacs in the local store, the average person does not order speciality mints online. If that box size ever becomes common in the UK I will revisit this effect.

Mark. We do not have this size either but I have not had a problem with anyone saying anything. Generic version I would gather most think mine is. Tic Tacs have made so many different containers and this year they now have the 200 ct size so no one knows any better.

If someone comes up with a box that is similiar stateside, please chime in. In the meantime, I am just going to use the label supplied until it wears out.

Broothal, sorry to hear about the gimmick breaking. Im sure they will supply you with a new one. I have no clue what the innards looks like but I hope it last a good while before wearing out. IM getting some good miles out of this. A few cons of course, everything you buy comes with it but if it fits your persona, and gets the reactions we all deserve, I call the spade a spade.

Decomposing Labels Appreciated

We have only ever had 1 size tic tac box in the UK and the huge one sticks out like a sore thumb, not to mention you would never get a tic tac label to fit it over here.

I should stay away from this thread while waiting for mine. It makes me itch lol

Same thing happened when I purchased his Ghost Tag.

The Hole doesn't appeal to me much but this one surely will be a fun to play with, people love mints and candy.

How did you like Ghost Tag Failed Magician?

Mintalist is bringing reactions I would not have believed with little in the way of presentation. I like to try it out like that first then move into high gear with good theatre thrown in.

It makes noise in my pocket but they are suppose to anyway.....Smile

Ghost Tag is great, even different person will have different knack of it. Mine is locked out on the top part of the plastic container. While others have it at the opposite side. But it delivers Smile

Peter should have provided more revelation on his website or a file where can use to edit the revelation to our own liking Smile

Units were beta tested for a year. Pretty sure the postal people are to blame broothal. Sure Uday will step in since he knows so much more about this. Sorry to hear you cant get along with it but sure its temporary. I am hoping to be using mine for a long, long time. I posted some cleaning in SS that I hope will extend it even longer.

Ghost seems like a winner also Failing Magician.

Classic skeptic tonight. I performed it for him and he looked at me with that sneaky smile you get. I just did the two color divination. He then politely now asked if he could see the container. This is that moment you just got to love since no s***** is involved. I gladly handed it to him to look and examine.

This is just impromptu and unpaid gigish. I relish the paid strolling gigs when I will go into the proper soothsayer patter.

Another plus is you never have to have stinky breath again!

I love the mentalism effects here. However I can't for the life of me understand why you'd ever do a color changing effect with this. For those who own it, doesn't that just point right to the method? You've got white tic tacs in a partially obscured box. You tell spec to pour some tic tacs out behind their back. They bring forward red tic tacs in their hand. Are they really to believe they poured out white tic tacs behind their back and the mints turned red while in their hand? Hard to believe this one was road tested on intelligent humans.

I have to agree with you there Platt. I perform mentalism and getting my routine perfected and its still evolving!

But I can't speak for magicians who get play out of the color change. Peter has been great answering my questions!

Well, just an idea, you can write a letter on each of the mint for revelations (forced card value perhaps). It shares the similar routine with Ghost Tag but this time with color.

Show the mint box, ask them to pour some into their hands on their back, close their palm and bring it to the front, open up, some red minties with letters, puzzled, then ask them to arrange them Smile
