Chewing Extra Sugarfree Gum is good for your teeth. Chewing creates saliva, which helps fight plaque by raising the pH level in your mouth, stopping acids from harming your teeth.
And now in Peach flavour.
I don't purchase gum often but saw this in a local dairy and decided to take the risk. Upon opening the packet I did notice a strange smell but as gum is quite processed thought I'd take the risk and try it anyway. There is no doubting a peach flavour is there, BUT after chewing for a few minutes another taste emerges which I guess could be due to the additives used in 'sugarfree' products. (I've tasted this before in some other 'sugarfree' things)
Overall not impressed. Not a realistic peach flavour, not a nice aftertaste.
I too purchased this product and hated the taste. if i remember correctly, i think it had a rather unpleasant smell too. Kind of reminded me of cat pee.
Certainly wouldn't buy again!
Well the only reason it gets a 10 for price is because i got my sample for free! Thank the boss.
It does have a very stong smell when the wrapper is pulled off, almost a cleaning chemical smell. I found the taste to be quite pleasent when first put in mouth, but it soon becomes quite bitter and metallic tasting.
If I was needing a fruit flavoured hit I would shop around before I had to buy these.
I actually bought the 3-pack, being as I am, a fan of Peach flavoured stuff. After only a single piece of gum, I regret my decision.
The smell, even before I opened the pack, was starting to make me feel a little tight in the tummy. I tore open the pack (very easy to open, I will admit) and extracted a nugget of gum, and styarted to chew. There was a burst of peach flavour, but it wasn't a very nice peach flavour... it tasted strange and not entirely pleasant.
After about 5 minutes, I couldn't stand the bitter aftertaste any longer and spat the gum out. Not impressed at all.
Overall, it might appeal to some, but not to me. The Phenylalanine (and it's insipent risk of a laxative effect if you chew too much of the stuff) has always been low on my list of acceptable additives to any food product, but it really wasn't a smart move on this one.
I think I'll stick to their Wild Mint Drops as these are proving to be a real hit for me. Followed closely by the Lemon flavoured Drops.
Random listing from 'Food'...
This south Indian classic is my loving mum-in-laws' secret recipe from the Deep South. It is full of flavour from the coast with coconut, chili, coriander and tamarind. Again a very versatile curry sauce that can be used for chicken, beef, lamb, seafood or even vegetables.
