Flavor is the name of the game now. So in the coming weeks and months, you can expect to see SUPER flavored everything. Sodas, chips, anything and everything….like GUM. I have seen many articles that talk about how people’s tastes are changing. They are wanting more flavor in every facet of their food and drink.

When I first saw the commercials for this new STRIDE SHIFT GUM, I was like “whatever”.

If you haven’t seen the commercial, here it is .

The whole “bag” with the new gum is that it changes, or “shifts” flavor. I am not talking like strawberry into blueberry. That’s too close. This is like CITRUS to MINT. Two DRASTICALLY different flavors.

As you can see from the picture, I got both flavors. First one is BERRY to MINT. The second is CITRUS to MINT.

“Berry” is a lightly fruity taste…but at some point, it does, almost SHOCKINGLY go from Berry to MINT. In a good way. It’s kinda bizzare and FUN to feel and taste that transformation.

I actually liked the Citrus to Mint BETTER, just because it is just a subtle transition, and it kind of sneaks up on you.

The flavor of this gum is AWESOME in terms of length. This ain’t your daddy’s FRUIT STRIPE.

This gum kept full-on flavor for HOURS after “shifting”.

If you see this, pick it up, I bet you will be pleased.

WARNING: Your friends, if you decide to share this, will bug you FOREVER for more…until that last piece is GONE. Use this knowledge wisely. Or buy TWO packs.
