Do any of you actually chew those Desert gums? I've been wanting to try them. It's getting to be warm out, and I'll be spending a lot of time with friends. LAST time that happened, I gained 7lb back haha. My fault completely, of course, but I thought if the gum didn't taste terribly bad, I could give it a try when out with friends, as we're all in our 20s and tend to drive around and, well,eat in the summer. I think I'll be able to make smarter choices, but it would be nice to have something different.

Does the gum taste ANYTHING like the ice cream? Saying no to ice cream will be the big make or break it deal this summer. It's been a year, though, and I think I might be OK.

I have tried the Chocolate Chip Mint and the Strawberry Shortcake and
I think they are VERY good. Not too big on the Key lime so I haven't tried
that one.

I just bought some of the mint choc chip today...haven't tried it yet. My trainer said its his favorite.

I'm happy to hear that, downsizer55! And mj5, let me know if you like it or not. I really need something to help me this summer, and I have a feeling Extra classic bubble won't cut it.

thanks for the feedback on this question! I've been thinking about trying it too.

I tried the mint choc chip gum and I think it tastes exactly like the ice cream! Very good for cutting cravings and just keeping my mouth busy, LOL!

I'm so excited now. I want to run to the store right now in my work out clothes covered in sweat haaha

yum, good to know. I thought the idea was gross but mint choc chip is my fave so i might rethink skipping this one

Has anyone seen this in Canada? Thanks in advance.

I really like the mint chocolate chip ice cream ones. I tried the strawberry shortcake one too. That one reminds me of those strawberry eclair ice cream bars.

I don't know, Koolmum, sorry :(

04-17-2011, 10:27 PM
I'm in BC Canada and haven't been able to find it yet :(

Thanks ~ I don't think we can get it here.
Road trip to Montana for GUM! LOL
I see you can order it on Amazon.

I think the type of sweetner they use in the gum is not allowed in Canada...

04-18-2011, 08:56 PM
man.. i got so excited as i was scrolling down the page... until i saw that the gum is not in canada!! AHHH!! i want to try it!!!

04-18-2011, 08:57 PM
wat sweetner do they use??

04-21-2011, 05:42 PM
I tried it, and I like it. Not AS great as I thought it would be though. I can only really taste the chocolately part when I blow and pop bubbles, if that sounds crazy. Still, it's a nice change, and I did split a piece with my sister (I'm so greedy LOL).

Maybe the strawberry one would taste better.

Anywho, thumbs up from me. This will be my "emergency, oh no everyone is eating cake/ice cream gum."

I haven't found it here in Canada but got it the last time we went to Montana. YUMMMM!

I love the key lime pie ones, the flavor doesn't last long, but you can even taste the "graham cracker" when you first put it in your mouth. These gums really helped me curve my sweet tooth. I tried the strawberry one, was not impressed. The ice cream one was almost exactly like real ice cream

the mint chocolate chip is my fave dessert gum also its awesome strawberry shortcake is good too but the mint is the best imo key lime isnt that great i dont think but maybe good just for a change sometimes i wouldnt buy that one again personally

Love all of these and found a new flavor a few weeks ago - Creamsicle (orange cream) flavored.

I think it's best to eat 2 pieces at once to really taste the deliciousness.

So, I just tried ordering a case of this on Amazon and they won't delivery to me. Not sure if it's because it's banned in Canada or because I have a PO Box. Bummer.

05-26-2011, 07:51 PM
I didn't care for the mint chocolate chip. Too much of a chemically aftertaste, and I was expecting it to taste like the ice cream.

The strawberry shortcake is good though.

06-09-2011, 07:12 PM
They're all good but they have a tendency to get too...mushy I guess the word is and lose their texture pretty quickly. I have all different flavors on hand so I can change it with my cravings.

I had to stop buying it, I was going through a package or more a day :)

06-12-2011, 12:37 AM
man... i really wish i remembered these when i went to the states!!!! ahhhh!!!! WHY CANT THEY HAVE THEM IN CANADA?!?!?

06-12-2011, 09:02 AM
I almost bought the strawberry shortcake, but didn't. I know it wouldn't last long, because my husband would have devoured it all within a couple days. lol.

I think the type of sweetner they use in the gum is not allowed in Canada...

Maybe I don't want to try it, then if the sweetener is 'illegal'. That doesn't sound too good. :(
