I’m back from vacation with my family in the mountains. I had something waiting for me at home, that I’m very excited to share with you.
I’m sure I cant be the only blogger that loves to chew gum. As much as I love gum, I try not to chew it often because of the ingredients like aspartame. The FDA has 92 acknowledged symptoms of aspartame poisoning.
That’s why I’m kicking aspartame with PÜR gum!
The people from PÜR gum were kind enough to send me samples from all four flavors. I love minty gum so I set my standards high for these flavors.
PÜR gum is a company based in Canada. Their gum is made in Switzerland and not in China like most gum is. It’s the #1 selling aspartame free gum. Two pieces of this gum has 10 calories. It’s made with xylitol, a natural sweetener that is found in many fruits and veggies. Unlike aspartame, xylitol has some health benefits.
The first flavor I tried was the pomegranate mint flavor.
I’ve never tried a gum flavor like this before. The verdict? It’s great! There was the right amount of pomegranate and mint and I think the flavors worked really well together.
Next, I tried the wintergreen flavor.
This flavor definitely had the strongest minty flavor. This flavor is a mix of spearmint and peppermint.. love it!
Then I tried the spearmint flavor.
When it comes to gum, spearmint is my favorite kind and this one did not disappoint.
Last but not least, I tried the peppermint flavor.
I find that a lot of peppermint gum tastes fake. This one does not! It’s minty with a hint of sweetness.
I noticed that the flavors don’t last as long as sugar free gum with aspartame. Other than that, I have no negative comments on this gum.
As you can see, PÜR gum has a lot less ingredients than other sugar free gum. The ingredients in this gum are pretty much all natural. Click here to find out more about all the ingredients listed above.
