Gum Brand You Like/Use?

Tue May 11, 2010 4:06 pm

Do you chew gum? What brand do you chew? (Big Red, Eclipse, Freedent, Hubba Bubba, Juicy Fruit, Orbit, WinterFresh, etc.)

I do. I like Orbit the best. I also like Hubba Bubba but the flavor goes away quickly.

I used to be partial to Stride, but I always go with peppermint flavored Orbit now.

Dentyne Ice Arctic Chill. I've always liked strong, peppermint-like gum and mints. It is good for breath control. I buy the sixty piece container at Publix. Something else; everyone I've given a piece of this gum to has said "this burns".

This is my all time favorite. My brother-in-law works where they make it so he keeps my supply going.

Big Red.

I like the taste, but it also seems to offset nicotine cravings, which is nice...

Any chewing gum sweetened with 100% Xylitol, natural "birchsugar" that prevents from tooth decay. My favourite Finnish invention

Orbit and Five for me. But then again, I don't chew gum a whole lot. Always makes me hungrier, which I think is the opposite of one of the intended results.

Winterfresh, BigRed, Doublemint, Spearmint. I used to eat a candy bar during 2 breaks per day @ work. I quit eating them, the gum keeps my mind off the candy bars, and I think helps keep me slightly more alert. Its also good for roadtrips.

I have been chewing Extra Winterfresh gum for 21 years and hope to continue another 21. That particular flavor came out in 1988 so I have been chewing it for nearly its entire existance.

Back when I used to chew tobacco I used to chew Chattanooga Chew, because it had a steam locomotive on the package.

Extra Winterfresh. If its unavailable and I need gum right away, I will go for Extra Spearmint or Peppermint.

I chew a stick after almost every meal and while I work out.

My dad is the same, only with Spearmint.

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that plaque bacteria can't actually live on. They end up "starving" to death.

A friend of mine chews their fruit version. Its like amped up Juicy Fruit.

I've been chewing it for pretty much just as long. I'm torn on the new packaging. It is nicer in some ways, not as nice in others. Certainly more wasteful.

It is fine to keep in my desk or car, but not so good in my pocket. By the time the I chew it all the pack is falling apart.

I like Orbit, but the last few times i have bought some, the gum wears out the sticky protective material so it becomes like glue after 5 min of chewing.

I always use Wrigley's Freedent Sweet Mint. It stays good for hours! Whenever I'm in the US I love the Orbit tropical taste. Only it makes your breath smell uhm, different!
