BREDA, Netherlands (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tourists use to flock to the Netherlands for its marijuana and hookers. Now a growing number are more interested in the city where Mentos candy are made.

The Dutch men’s magazine, Damrak, reports that the town of Breda is getting so many requests from tourists wanting to see the locations where the TV ads are filmed that an official “Mentos tour” is in the works.

The 3-hour tour will shuttle tourists to memorable Mentos sights including...

  • The parking spot where a woman in a tight squeeze is helped out by workmen who lift her Volkswagen free.

  • The bench where that guy rolls in wet paint to turn his suit into a pinstripe.

  • The fancy estate where a guy playing soccer accidentally kicks his ball right into the middle of a wedding ceremony.

    Tour operator Kas Bartelds says he hopes to offer the Mentos tour starting next month.
