Trident Wild Blueberry Twist

Flavor: Sickeningly sweet. The front label features a pomegranite and a blueberry. I don't understand the world's fascination with pomegranites lately. I used to eat them a lot as a kid, because they were fun to eat, not so much because of the taste. I remember them not tasting like much at all, really. Such is the case with this gum. It's blueberry gum. Strong, stinky blueberry gum. I'm probably very biased as I am NOT a fan of blueberry flavor in general. This gum in particular is sickeningly sweet, but I suppose that someone who loves blueberry will love this gum.

Texture: Good. No complaints at all. Starts out soft and stays chewable, like most Trident gum. Trident usually gets texture spot on.

Overall: Although I personally would rate this gum VERY low on my gum scale - I will NEVER buy it again and I will refuse it if offered to me, I have to say that this is a nice offering from Trident. It's consistent with other blueberry flavor things, and pretty accurate. I came to this review dreading it and fully expecting to give it one gumball, but that would be absolutely selfish of me. Even though I know my sister feels the same way about this gum, I have to say with all honesty that it's NOT a bad gum. It's, in fact, quite a good gum, and deserves much applause. I'd be interested to see comments from people who have tried this gum, especially if you are a fan of blueberry flavor. If you have, please sign in and let us know what you think, and I may adjust the gumball rating accordingly.
Rating: oooo (four gumballs)

I really enjoy this gum, atlhough I must admit I am caught up in the pomegranate fetish and I have been a long-time fan of blueberry-flavored sweets. Over the past year or so, I have tried several different fruit-flavored, mainly meeting with disappointment a flavor that didn't last or a bad after-taste. This gum has a great long-lasting flavor and receives high rankings in my book.

I can't find this flavor anymore and it was my favorite! I'm hoping to find it online somewhere. Oh how I miss it! :*(

I have been unable to find it for several months. I have written Cadbury and they said they have not discontinued this flavor.
They said to ask the store managers to order more.
