Extra gum comes in a mix of peppermint and spearmint to keep your breath fresh, minus the harshness.

Extra is great gum! I keep a pack of gum in my pants pocket at work so after my lunch break or just when my breath needs a quick pick me up I pop a stick of gum in my mouth & just like that my breath gets a blast of freshness! Where I live, Extra is only $1 so I always make sure to pick some up & have it on hand when I need it! Extra isn't just minty gum either! In my local stores, we have watermelon & even key lime pie flavor! Extra has it all & that's why I love it! ...read more

If you like your gum to have a kick to it, Trident’s Cinnamon gum is equal parts spicy and refreshing, effectively keeping breath super fresh.

Trident Cinnamon is my all time go-to gum of choice. It's affordable, has a long lasting flavor, and if one of the only gums that has good flavor WITHOUT aspartame! All of the other yummy gums have aspartame which is one of the worst sweeteners for you 😩 so I love that the cinnamon trident doesn't! Also, as a dental hygienist, I am so grateful that it DOES have xylitol in it, which helps fight cavities and is so good for your teeth! Just don't have a pack a day, because xylitol can cause gas or upset tummy if you have too much 😉 ...read more

Sweet Mint is exactly how it sounds: a long-lasting, sweeter flavor than the regular mint variety.

Okay, so I love this gum! The flavor is a nice peppermint, but it isn't so strong that it burns your tongue or hurts your nose. It's great for keeping in your bag to chew after meals, or to freshen up if you don't have a toothbrush around. It's also great to fool your stomach for a little if its not quite dinner time yet! The flavor is long lasting, but be careful to not let it expire, or else it'll get to have this weird stringy texture

Eclipse’s Winterfrost has a crispy outer shell that leads to a burst of minty flavor to freshen breath instantly.

I love love love this gum. The package fits perfectly in my car and my purse and it never melts! That used to be my biggest issue because I used to buy stick gums and the heat would cause them to soften and loose flavor. But that is never an issue with these and the amount in the package helps it last longer than a week, which is good for me because I chew a lot of gum! Also really helps create better smelling breath and covers up the smell of any food I previously ate! ...read more

It’s all in the name. Winterfresh gives you icy, fresh breath in seconds.

Rachel R.Rachel R. said...
This is by far one of my favorite gums. One, its sugar free so I can chew it with braces. Two, it has a great, long lasting taste. Three, it doesn't get hard or stale after chewing it for a long time. Four, if freshens your breath like no other gum can, it leaves behind minty fres breath. In my opinion it is perfect for a date. :) ...read more

Whitens teeth in a few weeks, and has 35% fewer calories than sugared gum. Basically, Trident White Peppermint Gum is a win-win.

This gum is great when you're on the go and you can't brush your teeth in time. Its just good to have around in those situations when you need fresh smelling breathe, like maybe after a meal out with friends or even when rushing out of the house and not having time to brush your teeth. The flavor lasts for a fairly long time and it tastes really good as well, since it is also sugar free it doesn't give you a whole lot of calories and it leaves you with fresh smelling breath, it does get a bit sticky afterwards though, but overall it is great gum ...read more

Are minty flavors not your thing? We got you. This sugar-free gum from Extra is full of watermelon-flavored goodness.

I usually stick to mint gum, but I tried Wrigley's Extra Fruit Sensations Sweet Watermelon Sugarfree Gum because it was on sale, and sounded good. I wasn't disappointed. I loved the watermelon flavor, and it lasted for a long time. Sometimes gum can get hard if you chew it for too long, but this stayed nice and soft. ...read more
