Extra Dessert Delights Rainbow Sherbet flavor review, limited edition

About six weeks ago, I heard Extra launched a limited edition dessert delights rainbow sherbet flavor; I couldn't find it anywhere and I was frantic. Finally, I saw it at Target in a three pack. Extra has developed a great new line of gum,dessert delights, using the most current flavor technology, sensates.  Sensates are flavors that contribute cool sensation without minty or off flavors.
