It's been awhile since I've reviewed any kind of gum. I'll be honest, I've become a little separated from the flavours that are out there in the world these days. With this in mind, I decided to pick up a 4-pack of Bubblicious with its huge collection of wacky flavours and jump right in. To start off, I went with Carnival Cotton Candy. I figured it'd be fun because of the cool font they use for the word "Carnival".

I have to say that if I were to attach a carnival attraction to this flavour, it would be like a lame fun-house You might even call it a not-so-fun house. It does taste pretty close to modern-day carnival floss, only because I've noticed that nowadays candy floss has gotten pretty crappy. What I've been trying to say in this now unnecessary paragraph is that this gum doesn't taste like cotton candy at all. It just tastes like sweet nothing. Maybe a little something else, but I can't put my finger on it.

The only thing I really like about this gum is the fact that it surprised me with its blue colour. I like surprises, but not enough to recommend this gum to anybody.
