Default 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?

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 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.

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!

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.
