Trident Layers "Wild Strawberry + Tangy Citrus"


I’m not sure if the concept of layers really worked with this gum. I think that this stick of this gum might be a little thicker than most small stick gums. I don't have a reference for a regular stick of gum right now but I'm really sure it must be thicker. Maybe the idea of this gum is to take two sticks of citrus gum and glue them together with some kind of strawberry sticky stuff. I use the word idea because frankly I couldn't really taste any citrus or strawberry per se. Instead I tasted something that resembled a melon flavour.

There was a hint of “tangy” when I first bit into the stick, but it pretty much disappeared after a few chews into a melon like flavour. I really couldn't find any sort of strawberry at all except for the fact that the middle layer was red. Even stranger, was this menthol flavour that kind of snuck up on me after a few minutes of chewing. It wasn't a bad flavour at all; in fact, I've developed a taste for fruit and menthol together, but it’s really not what I expected.

The gum itself was a little hard at first but it softened up pretty quick and soon it was just fine. If you're looking for a sour citrus and sweet strawberry flavour this might not be the treat for you. Unless you believe that citrus and strawberry together tastes like a cool honeydew melon.
