Extra "Peach"


I figure this review is going to take a while. Not that I plan to write a novel; I just know calculating the chew time is going to be a bit of a time taker. The marketing people who came up with the name "Extra" are not liars. This isn’t that common in the gum world. Many companies claim to have long lasting flavour, but most gums can measure their flavour is seconds.

I'd like to say that this is a new and interesting review for me, but to be honest I've been a fan of this particular flavour of Extra for many years now. I love the stuff. I can't say why, but I do. It sure doesn't taste like real peaches, but it's got that nice fake peach flavour down pat. That, and the fact that it does last a while made it a staple in my diet through college. I guess I'm saying I like it, and I have for a while. The only downfall is it doesn't do much for your breath and the bubbles it blows are pretty sub par.

Quick fun idea: rent the movie "James and the Giant Peach" and give everybody watching a piece of this to chew while you're watching it. It's the closest thing to smell-o-vision I've ever had.

Chew Time : 25 min
