Glee Gum: If You Like Stuff Stuck to Your Teeth

Name: Glee Gum (Tangerine)
Brand: Verve, Inc.
Place Purchased:
Price: $.33
Size: 18 pieces
Type: Gum

The package says “Finally! An All Natural Gum!” Yes, but there are reasons that we improve on nature sometimes.

Maybe it’s that I have dental work (crowns & filling) that I find this gum unappealing, or maybe it’s that it’s bland.

Made from natural chicle (the original ingredient in gum), this is gum the way our ancestors chewed it. The flavor of this batch is orange. I expected it to taste like aspergum and luckily it tasted more like orange candles. It’s slightly waxy, very sweet but has a good chew (if you avoid your repaired teeth). The flavor fades quickly and leaves a bland beige gummy material in your mouth. I have no idea if real chicle can be digested.

I’ve also tried the standard mint flavor, which has a longer lasting flavor but the same stickiness.

Rating: 5 out of 10.

  5. I have been on a gum kick lately but hate how almost every gum company now adds Aspartame to their gum! (Even the kind that’s not supposed to be sugar free!) I heard about this gum and have been contemplating ordering some but now I’m not sure if I will! I might pick up some if I ever see it in stores to see if I like it at all, but yeah..definitely don’t want to waste money buying something I might not even like.
