5 Sugar Free Gum (Solstice) Review

5 Gum (Solstice)5 Sugar Free Gum is a product of Wrigley - aren't they like the granddaddy of chewing gum companies?! Anyway, they describe 5 Gum as a, "groundbreaking sugar-free stick gum ... that delivers long-lasting flavor and a unique sensory experience with each flavor." Well, that wasn't my experience with the "Rain" (spearmint) flavor, but I decided to give it another shot and picked up the 5 Solstice Gum.

Solstice is described as "a warm and cool winter." My interpretation of that is basically a slightly sweet peppermint flavor. Because I don't really a full on assault of peppermint in all its glory, this was welcome news to me. The 5 Solstice gum is amazingly juicy, and the minty refreshing flavor lasts for a while (though not as long as Stride). Each long-lasting and satisfying piece of gum provides only 5 calories and 2 grams of sugar alcohols.

5 Sugar Free Gum (Rain) Review

5 Sugar Free Gum (Rain)I chew a lot of gum, so I have to buy something long-lasting. I'm currently addicted to Stride, as I can chew the same piece for 45 minutes or longer without feeling like the taste is gone. I can't just stick to one thing though - I like to try other options to see if there's something better out there. 5 sugar free gum is advertised as a gum that will "stimulate your senses," which sounded pretty good to me. With flavors like Cobalt, Flare, and Rain, I was eager to see what the taste was like, so I picked up a pack of 5 (Rain) Sugar Free Gum for $1.69 a pack.

The "Rain" gum is a spearmint flavor and each package has 15 pieces of gum in it (which is one more than in my packs of Stride). I have to say, this spearmint rendering is quite a bit sweeter than Stride's. It's nice, and a good change of pace, but it took a little time for the flavor to grow on me. But alas, the flavor went away after a too short a time (~15-20 minutes) and I was left with gross gum flavor.

Each piece has 5 calories, 2 grams of sugar alcohols, and nothing else.
