Orbit Fabulous Fruitini

Flavor: At first I wasn't sure what I thought of the flavor. This gum starts out subtle and soon increases in flavor to a very nice fruit-filled melody, but then just as quickly fades into nothingness, a victim of Gum Base Syndrome. Once the flavor fades, and it fades fast, it has practically no taste at all.

Texture: I can't complain much about the texture, it remains chewable from start to finish... but who wants to chew unflavored gum base, anyway?

Overall: This gum came out last year in a season of new gum FILLED with Orbit opportunities. Orbit flooded the market with a ton of new flavors, and of course I tried them all, so I had completely forgotten about Fabulous Fruitini. Now I remember why - it's completely forgettable. The way fruit flavors are saturating the gum market, a fruit gum really has to stand out to be memorable in my book, and Fabulous Fruitini just falls flat. I don't recommend this gum, and I will not be chewing it again.
Rating: oo (two gumballs)

I chew this one, because it's one of the few gums with Xylitol that don't also have Nutrasweet (aspartame), which gives me Migraines.

This is the ONE Orbit flavor that uses Splenda instead. Not sure why, but no migraines makes it worth it!
