Something to Chew On – Aspartame-Free, Vegan-Friendly Gum

Once in a while I get free products to try out and review. It sometimes puzzles me what products are sent my way but usually they’re pretty good.

Recently, I received packs of PUR Gum to sample. I’m not a chewing gum type of person like say, Britney Spears, but I do enjoy a breath freshening-gum once in a while. Plus those ridiculous Orbit commercials can be pretty persuasive.
The samples I received were NOT Orbit but were PUR GUM, which according to the literature is aspartame-free, vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and non-GMO verified chewing gum. Wow, that’s a lot of promise in a small piece of gum. The press release further states that PUR GUM, developed in Switzerland, is sweetened with Xylitol and infused with cancer-fighting antioxidants. Xylitol is a naturally-occurring sugar substitute, which does not cause cavities!


I received the spearmint, peppermint and pomegranate mint flavors and divided samples among my able testers i.e. my kids. The verdict – chewy, minty, not bad, although the flavor did not last long. Which is good for moms and kids right? PUR GUM is not only flavorful but it’s tooth-friendly too!
