My favorite gum, as of late, is 5 gum...specifically the Rain flavor. I'm a spearmint fan and this gum has a great flavor--not too much, just enough.

Right now, my favorite gum is Extra Polar Ice. Orbit Citrusmint is good, too, but I can't find it anywhere.

My all-time favorite gum is the watermelon flavor of Orbit Mist. It's very unique; I've never been able to find another great watermelon flavored gum. The runner-ups are Orbit Mint Mojito and Trident cinnamon.

Yummy, gummy!!

I love Hubba Bubba Watermelon gum. I wonder if they still make it. I haven't seen it in awhile. I also like Juicy Fruit.

My absolute favorite gum has to be good old Juicy Fruit. I love the sense of not knowing exactly what the flavor is, and it is very tasty and has a nice chewy texture. The flavor lasts pretty long, and there isn't any other fruity gum like it!

My favorite gum recently is 5 React (mint flavor). It gives your breath a sense of refreshment and cools you down if your hot outside. I also would like to try Stride Shift Citrus and mint to experience the changing of flavors, it should be cool. My least favorite gum is Orbit Mist flavors because they lose their flavors after like 10 seconds and lose their consistency.

My all time favorite gum is stride mega mystery because you can't tell what the flavor is, but my only problem with it is that it doesn't keep its flavor for very long.

Yoori said...

My favourite gum is trident layers! I love both flavours but unfortunately the melon fresco flavour isn't in stores here yet =(

I'm pretty nostalgic, so I love gum that I used to chew as a kid. My favourite gum of all time is probably YIKES! (STRIPES! FRUIT STRIPE GUM!) or Big League Chew. BLC always makes me think of going to the toy store for some reason...

I love Trident Splash Strawberry w/ Lime because it reminds me of where I want to be: on a tropical island with an icy cold drink in my hand!

Trident Layers, in the strawberry and the green apple/citrus flavors because I love fruity gums and the gooey layer is the best thing ever to me.

My all time favorite gum would have to be the Orbit Peppermint. This gum has been my favorite for as long as I can remember and all my friends and family enjoy it too :)

Charlie said...

Hmm... my favorite gum would have to be the Trident Splash. It has a burst of lime-ness inside that is really wonderful...

Brooke said...

My favorite gums are Trident Layers Cool Mint + Melon Fresco and Orbit Mist Mango Surf. Orbit blows really thin sticky bubbles but I love the flavor.

Rob said...

orbit berry red is hands down my favorite gum right now. i never get tired of it no matter how much i chew. i always have it along with some trident tropical twist on hand.

allstar0419@gmail.com

Abby Spice said...

I generally dig the Orbit ones, rotating the mints; they're usually not too strong but do clear up any breath problems. As a wee one I loved the gum that came in a bandaid box, but I'm scared to try it now (is it still around?) lest it turn out to be terrible. Just yesterday I tried a Yoo Hoo and it was...special. It was certainly special.

How come as kids we're physically capable of eating fantastically sweet things in massive amounts, but not allowed to, and as grownups we can eat what we want but no longer want entire cans of frosting?

clapifyoulikeme@gmail.com

PeaBucket said...

I'd have to say my favorite gum is Trident Minty Sweet Twist. It tastes like those old mint sticks made completely out of sugar and peppermint oil (I get them whenever I'm at a cracker barrel, as well as valomilk candy). I wonder if it would taste good with a lemony or orange gum, because I know a minst stick in a lemon/orange half was amazing.

My favorite gum is...
Orbit Mist Raspberry lemon dew. I like it because of the little crunchy things and the flavour is so intense but fades into a really yummy flavour. the texture is ahmazing too! the crunchies fade away, but im ok with that. It is so amazing! FIVE GUMBALLS ALL THE WAY!!!

KLind said...

The original Stride Spearmint is something I can always come back to. I think the reason it resonates with me is that I associate the taste and overall experience with memories of starting life at a new school with a new focus on my future. Chewing it always reminds me of my potential and makes me hopeful for the future.

Juicy Fruit is a close second because it's just plain tasty. The flavor goes away too fast for my liking though.

Love the site. It's a very unique concept that's surprisingly relevant to my interests. Keep up the good work!

Tried and true to Extra Spearamint. Why? Because it lasts an extra, extra, extra long time!

five rain or juicy fruit.
Juicy fruit for flavor but it doesnt last long
Five Rain for a delicious chewing experience.

The tropical trident (orange package)! The flavor lasts a long time and it tastes good!

Ryan said...

Girlz,

My favorite flavor has to be Extra Fruit Sensations Berrie Smoothie. However, the texture just falls apart after a while.

My favorite texture hands down goes to Wrigley Winterfresh. That stuff can repair a hole in an engine block. It is tough all day long!

Four words for you:
Orbit. Mist. Peppermint. Spray.

I've been addicted since I bought my first pack who knows how long ago. The texture is lovely, the peppermint is vivid, and the whole chewing is refreshing and mouth-happy-ing.

I'm drooling just thinking about it!

Hi,my all-time favorite gum is stride mega mystery gum.This gum is sooo delicious and I sometimes go through 1 or 2 packs a day!It also helps me from my food cravings and everyone is ALWAYS asking me for this gum! so stride mega mystery is my favorite gum of all time.

I enjoy orange stride, just because I'm a fan of fruity gum and there's nothing I really dislike about it. If I need something mintier, I might go for blue 5.

Caleb said...

My favorite gum is Orbit Mint Mojito. This rather unusual sounding chew inspires a rather sexy ferocity in me that just makes me want to go for a night on the town. When I first tasted Orbit Mint Mojito I was welcomed to a overpowering but welcome lime flavor. Even better were the notes of mint that danced on the citrus trail. It keeps me interested in chewing and always calls me back for another pack. The soft 'chewability' and consistency is another plus of Orbit Mint Mojito. I find that the gum keeps a solid chew for the duration it is in my mouth. A definite plus.

The final (and most important) reason that Orbit Mint Mojito is my favorite gum is the silent but attractive stretch of flavouring. As two gum reviewers yourself, you can agree with me that the length and duration of flavour is a very big factor in deciding how many 'gumballs' a gum receives. Orbit Mint Mojito knocks it out of the park for me here, and I'll tell you why. Even though the initial burst of lime goodness dissipates (all good things must come to an end, no?) you are always left with a distinct citrus streak that permeates the gum complemented with a classic mint presence. It's a delightful little sensation after the first 15 minutes of chewing.

Orbit Mint Mojito wins with me for it's unusual (but fantastically distinct) flavor and intensity that has never been replicated in other gum distributors' line (I'm taling to you, 'Strawberrymint'!) and for that, I take off my hat to Wrigley's.

Katie said...

My most recent favorite gum would have to be the Orbit Sweetmint gum. (introduced to me by none other than your awesome blog)
It's a great chew, the flavor is just as advertised, it's a sweet mint! I like the simplicity of the flavor and the packaging, and I've gone through at least three packs since discovering this delightful little gum.

My fallback gum, however, has got to be extra Polar Ice gum. I've loved this gum for several years, and I always come back to it eventually. no other flavor of extra seems to have quite the same refreshing quality of polar ice.

Thanks for this awesome opportunity. Stay cool. :)

Bob said...

Tie: Stride uberbubble (hard to find these days) and Extra Polar Ice. I also enjoy them together, 2 sticks each (half my recipe for smaller wad chewers). start with the uberbubble and add the Polar Ice around 15 minutes later for a refreshing burst. Good softish consistency and perfectly acceptable small bubbles. Also, I just might be the only person alive who enjoys fine single malt scotch with uberbubble. Gee wish they made uberbubblegum cigars...

Thanks ladies, love yer blog.

It's a tie between Trident Cinnamon and Minty Sweet Twist. Tride and true. I chew one or the other after every gym work out and find that they're refreshing, cooling and long-lasting! No better way to combat a bad case of 2hoursinthegymmouth.

my favorite? Well, your blog has gotten me back in touch with my love of gum (and it's better for my waistline than eating chocolate). I have tried all of your favorites here and I must say that Orbit Bubblemint is the current favorite. Of course, I am chewing gum as I write, and it is my runner-up, 5 Zing (I know, I hate to admit I like a 5, but I do, I do).

J W said...

Trident original! This may sound weird, but I love the complexity of it. It's not a clear, obvious flavor or mixture of flavors. It has different mints, cinnamon, and other flavors. I have chewed thousands of pieces and I can still just sit and ponder the flavor.

I like Big Red because it's old school and so am I. I also like the way it burns my mouth and makes me feel so alive!

I have to say I'm sold on trident tropical twist. I used to only chew trident splash, but this is the gum that made me give up pellet gums. I feel myself becoming more and more of a gum connoisseur just by chewing it.

My favorite gum would have to be Wriggly's Spearmint. It was the gum I remembered chewing when I was little. Although at the time I didn't know that chewing gum with sugar was bad for my teeth, I still liked the minty taste. After trying other kinds, I still have to say that Wriggly's Spearmint is still the best !

This is a comment to combine two comments by a gumalert reader into one comment so it's fair in the contest...

Dave Edwards said (in two separate posts that have since been deleted):

Orbit Mist Peppermint spray is by far the best gum ever created. It really does leave your mouth feeling super moist (which is a fantastic feeling), has a perfect mint flavor, has the best overall initial bite of any gum I have ever had (I have had maybe 30+ different brands/flavors)because it feels like the peppermint literally works it's way down your throat for an almost thirst quenching feeling, has a super snazzy package/wrapper, and I tested one piece and after 47 minutes the flavor was still there.

However in my opinion spearmint > peppermint by a long shot and I haven't tried Orbit Mist spearmint Spritzer yet (it's new) so once I do it'll probably become my new favorite.

How silly of me. I forgot my email address.

Shani Fisher said...

My favorite gum of the moment is Extra Polar Ice! Those little flavor crystals keep the gum so minty for a long while. You didn't ask specifically, but the gum I miss the most is Chewels. Do you remember that? I loved the gooey center of the pink flavor, especially when my dad would buy me a pack! Love your blog! Keep chewing!

learntolive said...

My favorite gum is Orbit Mint Mojito. Right around the time that I started my first official relationship, my mom happened to buy a mega pack of this gum. So, I was constantly chewing it at the same time as I was forging into the world of relationships and emotions and whatnot. To this day, whenever I taste - or even smell - that gum, it brings back all of those memories...Plus, Mojitos are one of my favorite drinks, and the flavor is great :)
