When you travel do you look at each stop for candy that you've never seen before? For our family, that is one of our favorite things about traveling. We like to try new and different food and really enjoy trying to find candy and snacks we've never had before. You can see in the picture above that we found some interesting gum flavors I haven't seen locally before. We found these at a gas station just north of Nashville, TN. We all love citrus flavors, so I thought both of these would be perfect for us.
The only problem is that the picture above is the only picture I have of these gums and now we've eaten them up. I've been trying to find them in our area but haven't had much luck. I would have really liked to get a picture of the "burst" part of the Bubblicious gum because pictures of ooze flowing out of gum are pretty cool. The mango peach Bubblicious was clearly our favorite. These 2 flavors are fantastic together and if you see this and like those flavors, I would highly recommend buying it. The peach is the predominant flavor of this gum and it was very enjoyable. It is a fake peach flavor but one of the best fake flavors I've had in some time. The "burst" was fantastic and I love that sugary syrup inside and what it adds to the gum. This gum has a whopping 20 minutes of flavor so we ate all 7 pieces pretty quickly.
The island punch Hubba Bubba reminded me of the red Hawaiian Punch drink my Grandma used to buy and keep in her fridge for when we'd visit. You could taste a very faint orange-cherry-citrus-pineapple flavor that was pretty darn good. I never know what these flavors will taste like since they are marketed to a different age group than me, but I thought this flavor was fantastic. I liked the peach flavor better, but that's just because it was a very distinct flavor that has a great taste to it. This gum lasted about 15 minutes and was incredible for our "who can blow the largest bubble in the car" competition, which keeps our son busy and makes the trip more enjoyable.
I try to make this point every few reviews but I'll make it again. Life is short, so try any and every food, candy and gum you can find. I know it makes our lives and our long car drives much more enjoyable.
