Extra Dessert Delights Apple Pie

Flavor: Picture a warm slice of apple pie. The first bite is a mouthful of tart, juicy apple, spiked with cinnamon. The crust is creamy and sweet, and the flavors blend together in harmonious bliss. There's just something about apple pie that's comforting, calming. A kind of warm cinnamon happiness. You guys? This gum tastes like apple pie. Like, for serious apple pie. I don't know how they replicated that familiar flavor with chemicals, artificial sweetener and gum base, but that flavor chemist deserves a serious raise. It's delicious.

Texture: A little on the tougher side when it comes to chew, but definitely well within chewability limits and nowhere near tough enough to tarnish enjoyment of the gum.

Presentation: Similar graphics as the rest of the Dessert Delights line, with autumn-y colors: burgundy, brown, orange and cream. A nice slice of apple pie graces the pack. Nothing flashy, nothing crazy... Extra lets the gum itself do all the work, as it should be.

Overall: This gum is BANGIN'. Now, this gum is not made to be an every day chewer. It's not going to freshen your breath - if anything, you'll need to pop a piece of your mint of choice afterwards to kill the cinnamon from this one. This gum is marketed as an "indulgence" to satisfy your sweet tooth in times of dire craving. And I gotta say, this really does. Go pick up some of this one - now.

Mint Chocolate Chip and Apple Pie are the best Dessert Delights for sure! Oh and Delilah, I gotta tell you... I love your name! (I love it so much I named my daughter Delilah!) :)

I bought this gum several weeks ago while in PA and became INSTANTLY obsessed with it. Seriously, it's fantastic, cinnamon and soft and like a mouthful of apple pie. I immediately bought 6 more packs. Only weird thing, I think, was the choice to make it green in color. Would have been better as some sort of reddish or tan (evoking the color of cinnamon). Truly, a fantastic gum.

i couldn't love this gum any more. . .

in fact, i have chewed about 5 packs of it in less than 2 weeks.

i do agree that it is odd that the gum is green though. i would definitely prefer it to be red as well

I just bought the 3-pack of apple pie - I wanted to eat a whole pack !! Unfortunately, like any juicy fruit gum, the flavour doesn't last very long =/

The bottom line: mass-market luxury items gucci replica are everywhere today, and they form one of the fastest replica louis vuitton growing segments of consumer products. Steve Jobs chanel replica is smart enough to tap into that trend with a unique product. And he's going to sell millions of them at quite healthy profit margins as a result.

One more thing: by the time Christmas replica handbags of 2008 rolls around, Moore's Law says that the price rolex replica of the electronics in the iPhone will be half what they are now. Don't be hermes replica surprised if those 46% of consumers get louis vuitton replica their $299 iPhone then; they just have to wait eighteen months before it makes business sense for Apple to sell it at that price.
