Flavor: In a word, perfection. It is, in fact, a minty sweet twist of flavor in your mouth. It has all the benefits of fruity gum (delightful after meals and to fix that “sugar craving”) while maintaining that fresh afterglow. It’s as pleasing as the mint inside a peppermint patty– cool, sweet, refreshing.
Texture: We’re talking Trident here, people. This company knows gum. Even the wrappers are edible! It’s such a delightful texture that I don’t even think about it while chewing. It doesn’t matter how long you chew– it is a consistent and steady, not-too-hard, never-mushy, perfect sort of chewing gum. This isn’t a plaything folks, no bubbles or cracks here. We’re talking gum for people like me: Gum chewers.
Overall: Shannon and I have decided that our inaugural reviews would be of our current favorite gums, so I don’t need to go on and on about how great it is– its mere stature above and beyond all other gums out there speaks volume enough. I never tire of Trident Minty Sweet Twist; I buy a pack any time I see it, whether I have them in my bag already or not. The packaging, as with all Trident, leaves much to be desired– but there’s nothing quite like finding that renegade piece at the bottom of your purse when you thought you were all out of that sweety minty treat. Scrape off the crumbs and dust bunnies– it’s worth it.
