Default Gum?

I was an avid diet coke and gum chewer before starting IP. I cannot find any gum that is not made with aspartame and I am going thru major withdrawal. Is there any gums made with splenda that you know of?

I think orbit is the best choice.... But, my coach does not allow gum.

My coach allows me to chew Trident, but not very much at all.

I was told that only Xylitol sweetened gum is allowed. Spry loses it's flavor very quickly so I ended up chewing several pieces. I found Xyloburst on Amazon and although it was expensive it was a better deal than the Spry gum I found locally. The peppermint is pretty strong and it loses it's sweetness faster than regular gum but retains it's flavor.
