View Full Version : Best chewing gum?

Okay, so when I get tempted to do some "recreational eating" as I call it I've been chewing gum instead. Usually Extra spearment but I'm sort of getting bored with it. Any suggestions for other kinds of mint gum and/or fruit flavored gum?

All Orbits are good! 3 cal a piece I think. Peach is good, melon mint... I chew sooooo much!

I love Stride gum because it really IS ridiculously long lasting. Sweet Peppermint is my favorite.

Another one addicted to Stride Sweet Peppermint. (That's the one with the light ice-blue packaging.) I buy this in ridiculous quantities when it goes on sale.

And Aliquot & I are not the only fans, cause I swear this flavor runs out during the sales before any of the others.

I love 5. The green one (spearmint) is my fave.

Trident has some nice flavors out now--much bigger selection than I remember a few years back. My kids bought some just yesterday. It is sweetened with Xylitol too.

I love me some HUBBA BUBBA Ouch bubble gum, what can I say Im a kid at heart! :)
It has 1 gram of sugar alcohol & 5 cals & blows AMAZINGLY big bubbles! :)

It comes in a cute pink box about 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches size and its 2 tone pink by wrigleys with a green bandade looking dude blowing a bubble. Try it I am sure you will love it too!

I love the Extra Peppermint. It seems to keep its flavor the longest. Interesting because I usually prefer spearmint over peppermint, but in the Extra....I like peppermint better.:dizzy:

Trident Layers is pretty good..the strawberry and apple flavors. I'm getting a little bored with it though, I'll have to try the Stride soon.. I have some coupons for that one!

Orbit's Sweet Mint is the best! I love it and it helps with the curbing of eating when your bored

This is interesting because in the past my experience was that gum seemed to stimulate the digestive juices and make me hungry. Maybe I need to try some of your recs just to see. I am a "chew" person.

I pretty much always chew Trident White. I like fruity gum.

I love love love Orbit Pina Colada gum!!! I am chewing it right now since i wanted something sweet after lunch.

Also a fan of Extra Berry Smoothie. It tastes like the stuff at the bottom of mixed berry yogurt.
