Matteo Guidicelli, Mentos Give Triple Treat

By Posted on 3 m read

Mentos, the international mint soft candy brand, and Filipino-Italian racer-turned-actor combined to give Pinoy triple the fun, triple the treat as Matteo plays three different roles in the short movie offerings available online: an action star, an Italian romantic and  simply boy-next-door. 

Matteo show three-facets to many people, just like the new Mentos Strawberry Mix, three surprising flavors, packed in one roll, giving you more than your usual candy. Feel the exciting tangy burst of Sour Strawberry, relish the rich sweetness of Vanilla Strawberry, or indulge in the reliable simplicity of Classic Strawberry.

The Mentos Strawberry Mix Thrillogy lets Matteo take us on three fun-tastic rides that showcase all that he has to offer as he tries to win the heart of the girl of his dreams… with two very special strawberry-headed accomplices in tow. After all, even the man who can seemingly do it all needs a little help at times, making the Mentos Strawberry Hitmen the ideal quirky allies on Matteo’s out-of-the box adventures.


In The Thrill of the Chase, Matteo’s active, energetic side will make pulses race as he embodies his adrenaline driven “Action Star” persona. As you watch him run, swim, and practically do everything he can to earn honorary stuntman stripes, you’re sure to get a refreshing kick like you would from a Sour Strawberry dragee inside Mentos Strawberry Mix.

Matteo also indulges in his romantic Italian roots in The Thrill of Declaring Your Love as he spouts poetry that would make even Michelangelo blush. Well, maybe not but it’s worth it to see him try! You’ll definitely find Matteo “The Italian Lover” just as irresistible as the full flavor of Sweet Vanilla (especially with his adorable Italian accent).

Some ladies prefer their suitors to be a little more straightforward though, and Matteo doesn’t disappoint in The Thrill of Being Real. There’s no denying the “Boy Next Door” charisma he exudes even without all the frills and his down-to-earth appeal will win you over like the uncomplicated delightfulness of Classic Strawberry flavor.

It will be plain to see that there’s more of Matteo to love in the Mentos Strawberry Mix Thrillogy (Guys, be prepared to take notes if you want to make a girl swoon). So whatever you may be looking for, you’re sure to crave exciting experiences of your own once Matteo’s shown you how much fun it can be.

Because, really, why settle for the ordinary when you can triple the thrill? And Mentos has, through the years, taught us to get a kick out of the simplest things, and make every day a chance to live out loud and live fresh.

It’s a kind of magic that’s found in every Perfetti Van Melle product—the European company that prides itself in pushing the envelope of candy excellence around the world. Other famous brands like Fruittella, Smint, Alpenliebe and Chupa Chups are stamped with the same flavor of fun that Perfetti Van Melle has made its calling card.
