RIVERSIDE, Ill. A new pheromone-infused breath mint is gearing up to be a top-selling product this summer.

Cougar Mints, a breath mint product geared toward women, contains pheremones to trigger human response from those who smell them, according to Promotionalproducts.org — specializing in trade show giveaways — which is considering the product among its “Summer Hottest Sellers” list.

“These mints have only been available for a couple of months and we can barely keep them in stock,” says Tim Mercer, general manager of Promotionalproducts.org. “Not only are the mints popular, but [many] businesses that are looking for a giveaway at conventions.”
