The gown was a jaw-dropping masterpiece that was made of approximately 70,000 Tic Tac® mints, weighed 150 pounds and took over 175 hours to create. “The Tic Tac inspired gown was a great way to celebrate the Emmy® Awards with Tic Tac® mints while supporting CancerCare,” quoted Carla Domen, Vice President of GBK Productions and designer of the Tic Tac® mints creation.
