'My Cube' gum - Cola

Posted by Linda on 28. 2011 0 comments 0 trackback
'My Cube' is a chewing gum brand from Lotte, I don't think it's a new brand from the company, as I recall there was a cube version released as part of Lotte's '+X' chewing gum range (which seem to have ceased production) back in 2008 I think. 'My Cube' appears to be just a newer "revamped" version of the older +X Cube chewing gum.
Anyway, this was my first experience with this particular chewing gum brand, I like Lotte's 'Xylitol' chewing gum, so I decided to give this one a try.
So for my first My Cube experience, I decided to go for the Cola flavor:

the gums came in a little flip open case that you can re-seal to sustain the freshness. The instant I opened up the packet I was welcomed by the pleasant smell of cola, each piece of soft chewing gum was encased in a cube shaped shell. Each had a generous amount of cola flavor as you bite and chew into them, refreshing your mouth with the smell of cola. But other than that, there's really nothing special about this particular gum.
I've tried other gums over the years which I've savored and enjoyed a lot more, so this is certainly not a "must-try" gum in my opinion.

'Watering Kissmint' gum - Peach & peach

Posted by Linda on 17. 2011 1 comments 0 trackback
I have long been intrigued by these popular 'Watering Kissmint' chewing gums from Glico, mainly because of its unusual but very tempting name. So when I saw that these gums are available at JList.com, I decided to finally give it a try & I ordered the Peach & peach flavor:

these thin wide strips of gum were infused with loads of juicy peach flavor, there's 2 types of peach used; white and yellow peach, hence the flavor is "peach & peach". You can see in the 2nd photo above that each piece of gum has these thin pink lines running vertically down the strips of gum, these are supposedly lines of flavor of the white peach.

when I opened up the packet, I noticed at the back of the top flip that those pink lines are labeled as "water lines"...I'm not sure what that meant exactly, or the purpose of those pink lines, but I'm assuming they're trying to emphasize on the brand name.
Anyway, I really liked the peach flavor of the gum, so rich & fruity, not to mention they freshen your breath and they were indeed "juicy"...I guess that's how the brand name came about, ne?
Although the peach flavor doesn't last very long...which is the only aspect I will fault on.
But overall, after trying this flavor, I definitely recommend these Watering Kissmint chewing gums! I think I'll try the grape flavor next time.

'Xylitol' gum - Fresh mint

Posted by Linda on 24. 2010 0 comments 0 trackback
'Xylitol' is a popular chewing gum brand from Lotte, Xylitol (a natural sweetener) is used as a healthier substitute for any "bad" sweeteners in its chewing gums, hence the name of the brand. This is the original fresh mint flavor:

you immediately experience a burst of strong fresh mint flavor that not only freshens your breath instantly, but helps keep your teeth strong.
I do have 1 complaint, the mint flavor almost completely dissolved within a matter of some minutes, it would've been better if the fresh mint flavor was longer lasting.

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
