So the claim here is simple, well kind of simple, the idea is that this gum can make you a little smarter. I figure I need all the help I can get, after all I'm the guy that thought doing a little web site about reviewing candy was a good idea.

Having said all that, I'm not really interested in getting any smarter, I'm just interested in eating something tasty. So was this Think Gum tasty you ask? Well it wasn't bad; the package says that it's full of natural ingredients (this can sometimes be a deterrent) that actually taste pretty good. It was subtlely minty with a slightly herb like aftertaste. I'm actually pretty sick of these super over powered minty gums and this treat isn't that at all.

Now I'm sure you're wondering what if any reactions (smart causing or not) that may have come from chewing this treat. Well I don't think I'm any smarter, but after chewing it I have to say I was full of energy, I mean really full of energy. I was talking a mile a minute and unable to think clearly and... Wait a minute, there's a problem. If I'm all hyped up and full of energy then I'm not thinking straight, and if I'm not thinking straight some might say I'm a little stupid. So my conclusion is if you're me Think Gum makes you dumber, but really excited about all kinds of things.

Chew Time : about an hour (that's pretty good)
