Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Chewing Gum?

Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Chewing Gum?

From the time I first laid eyes on Dr Pepper-filled bubble gum decades ago, I've been a sucker for trying new chewing gum flavors. Although I've tried everything from Orbit Maui Melon Mint to Trident Splash Apple With Raspberry, I ultimately return to the tried-and-true Trident Original Flavor. It's always soft, and has the perfect amount of freshness without overpowering my tongue. Do you share the same feelings? What's your favorite chewing gum of all time?

i love orbit, but i've found that 5 gum lasts longer. i'm a sucker for simple pepperminty flavors.

Oh- and at one time I was OBSESSED with Bazooka bubble gum! I would buy a box and it would be gone within 4 days. Now I stick with sugar free though...

Wow, I guess the Orbitz Sweet Mint wins! I have never tried it, but am definitely going to the store tomorrow to check it out!!!! I forgot about the Fruit Stripe Gum. I chewed a ton of it as a kid. I loved it then!! Currently I've been chewing Eclipe Spearmint, Trident White Spearmint, Dentyne Artic Chill and Trident White Peppermint. I use to chew Extra all of the time. Its the only gum that stays soft for a long time.

i'm a kid at heart...i love bubble gum. my 8 yr old son thinks it's hilarious when he picks trident and i'm getting bubbalicious or bubble yum. for some reason, i love rain-blo. big jaw breaker looking things but really bubble gum. for fresh breath and when i have to be an adult, i've always got a pack of orbit sweet mint in my pocketbook. ;-)

Definitely Trident Splash Strawberry and Lime..yum... I do find that Eclipse polar ice works better for breath freshening though.

I go through phases of chewing gum -- sale, anyone? I am def. going to try Orbitz sweet mint, as so many seem to like it. Then, I'll go down the list and try the others!

I agree with you there, rachelsmith The Mandarin is my favorite :)

Extra Spearmint is my fav fav fav. I've had to cut back due to interactions with sorbitol so sometimes I chew Freedent Spearmint because it has a lot less sorbitol, it doesn't stay soft as long though so I just tend to not chew gum anymore.

You guys are doing yourself a disservice by not chewing Stride. It last absolutely forever. I don't chew anything else now. Fave flavors? Spearmint, or Mandarin.

orbit sweet mint, it tastes just minty enough to mask yuck breath (god forbid) and sweet enough to curb a craving!

I love minty or cinnamin flavor gum, but prefer gums that are not sugar free which is actually quite hard to find! Sugar free brans hurt my belly :(

Orbit Maui Melon Mint and Trident Splash Strawberry Lime are my top two picks... if those aren't available, I go for Eclipse Artic Mint

My absolute #1 favorite is BlackJack, a licorice-flavored gum. Not easy to find and can therefore be expensive. My second favorite is Big Red or Doublemint. Definitely not a fan of spearmint or wintergreen gums.

Love the Orbit Sweet Mint too! Actually, I haven't tried a flavor of Orbit that I didn't like, but it's definitely my favorite. My fave when I was a kid, though - Bubbalicious Grape.

I'm also in the cult of Orbit Sweet Mint. I think it tastes like mint chocolate, and I could easily go through a pack a day.
