Here is the newest gum from Cadbury. It is a gum that changes from citrus to mint as you chew it. I love the packaging of this gum. Bright colors, the big S on the front. The inside is fantastic too, with a fold open double deck package (see picture below).
Each piece is wrapped in a green wax paper with designs that look like what is on the box. The gum is an orange color and all you can smell is citrus, no hint of mint anywhere on this gum. I was surprised at how large the pieces were (see picture below). I was thinking the gum would be the size of Trident, but this gum was fairly large.
I found this gum to be a very tough chewing gum. My favorite gum is Wrigley's Doublmint gum. It's a nice soft chew which is what I was expecting from this gum. I was really surprised at how dense and chewy it was. This gum starts with a citrus flavor that lasts about 60 seconds. It tastes like Tropical Twist Trident. It then switches to a spearmint flavor that has an okay taste. Overall, I wasn't very impressed with this gum. I think it's mostly a marketing ploy. It's fun to try something different and it's a very interesting concept, but I think the taste needs more work. I'm sure there are people that will love this gum, but I'd rather chew a gum with one great flavor than two I wasn't crazy about.
