Let me get this out of the way, I'm not very good at sports. In fact I pretty much suck at anything athletic, unless you consider foosball a sport. I also don't really understand many sports related candy products, particularly the ones that don't really help you during the game. These would fall into that category because really all these have to do with hockey is they're sort of shaped like hockey pucks and they have strange and very random hockey words printed on them. My favourite words found so far are Zamboni, Vancouver, Enter Ice (I think a C might be missing.

As far as how it rates as a gum I have to say I love the taste. I'm not sure if it's any good or not but they're very similar to these bubble gum footballs I used to get when I was a kid and man are my memories coming back to me. When I eat these I feel like I'm living in an episode of the Wonder Years.

The flavours of these may be a different based off their colours but if you don't pick up on it in the first 10 seconds you'd never know. The fruity flavour is fleeting and in no time you have this sugary flavour that I don't mind but they all taste the same. On a side not I should mention that these thing blow killer bubble, but don't blow anything too big because it's a pain to get off your skin.
