Trident Minty Sweet Twist


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.

The flavor of this gum has more stamina than my jaw.

This is the best gum I've had. I'm holding on to my last pack because I don't see it in the grocery store any more. but I do see it online.

I just randomly found your blog, and I must say, I am delighted and hysterical all at the same time. I was doing a search on Stride's new Berry to Mint, and I agree... gross. Then I noticed in another post that you LOVE the Minty Sweet Twist! This is also my personal favorite of all gum ever made! I must agree - PERFECT! It never gets old and I buy it in bulk!
Great reviews... keep it up! :)

This is my family's favorite gum, but recently it has been hard to find in local grocery stores and even in smaller shops. Has the flavor been discontinued or is there just some Minty Sweet shortage in central Vermont? I'd hate to have to start buying 1080 pieces of this at a time on Amazon...

BEST GUM I HAVE EVER HAD!! I CHEW THIS GUM ALL THE TIME. IT HAS BEEN TOUGH TO FIND IT LATELY. THERE WAS ONE OTHER TIME THAT I REMEMBER MY FAVORITE FLAVOR DISAPPEARED. I CAN'T CHEW THE FRUITY ONES --I JUST DON'T LIKE ANYTHING THAT DOESN'T FRESHEN THE BREATH EXCEPT BUBBLE GUM OF COURSE. IT DOESN'T STICK TO DENTAL WORK EITHER!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! YUM!!
