The strange thing about gums like these is that they're really sweet. The idea of this treat: make it a little sweeter. At first I thought that I was getting two types of gum rolled together. What I got was gum wrapped around some kind of ultra chewy sugary stuff. I guess that's what gum is, only this stuff doesn't seem to last; it just kind of dissolves in your mouth.

My next thought was that it might look cool when I took it out of the package. I even got my camera out to see. What I got was a log of gum that frankly grossed me out a little. Once I bit into it, the center started to look a little better, but at the ends it was just odd looking. My other complaint about all these over-sugary gums is when they run out of taste, which is in no time at all, my jaw starts to hurt like crazy. This novelty is different, sure, but I don't really get it.
