Bubblicious "Carnival Cotton Candy"


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 again. 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". This isn’t common for me to pick out candies due to their font, but it does happen more than you might think.

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 and flavourless. 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. There might be a hint of background flavour, but I can't put my finger on it, and I can tell you that it’s not cotton candy.

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