Yes, I'm addicted to gum. I usually go for minty, and I usually go for Stride, but Orbit is up there in my estimation as well. I like that they offer fruity and interesting flavors, which is part of the reason I decided to try the Orbit Pina Colada flavor. Am I alone in thinking it strange that they chose "Pina Colada" as a flavor for chewing gum?! Nevertheless, I picked up a pack and was hoping for the best.
I opened the package and took out a piece. The first thing I noticed was the pineappley and coconutty aromas (yes, I realize those aren't words, but they should be)! The taste was the same as well - juicy and delicious, like a true pina colada. Like all fruit-flavored gums, I noticed that the flavor didn't last super long, but I did enjoy it while it lasted. The gum is sugar-free and has less than 5 calories per stick.
The ingredients are Sorbitol, Gum Base, Glycerol, Mannitol, Flavor, Less than 2% of, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Aspartame (Sweetener), Soy Lecithin, Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Acesulfame K, Fumaric Acid, Color (Yellow 5 Lake) and BHT (To Maintain Freshness)
I picked up a pack for $1.50 - not bad, but somewhat pricey (stupid convenience store markups). I will definitely buy this again, not for my standard rotation because the flavor doesn't last as long as I would like, but it's good for a nice change of pace. I gotta say that before reviewing chewing gums for Iateapie,net, I never really paid attention to the ingredients list. I gotta say I'm not so thrilled with all the artificial coloring (I expected the artificial sweeteners).
