Extra Dessert Delights Sugar Free Gum, Root Beer Float Flavor

Extra Rootbeer Float sugar free gum

Root beer floats are a favorite summer treat in the United States. Believe it or not, root beer is not enjoyed by all cultures and countries. Native Americans introduced root beer and made it using birch bark or wintergreen(characterized by methyl salicylate).  http://tiny.cc/mp4ogw. Most of the world associates the taste of wintergreen with medicine or bathroom cleaner. Americans enjoy wintergreen and root beer flavor in their sweets. Personally, it's difficult for me to imagine not enjoying root beer. In order to provide a proper evaluation of Extra Dessert Delights Root Beer Float gum, I decided to start with a home made root beer float gold standard (vanilla ice cream and root beer).

Extra Dessert Delights Rainbow Sherbet flavor review, limited edition

Extra Dessert Delights, Rainbow Sherbet

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.

Orbit wildberry remix sugar free chewing gum review

Orbit Wildberry Remix

Often I hear "our world is getting smaller".  When people say that; they are referring to the ease of travel or transportation. How about food and flavor? When I visited Italy 10 years ago, a very popular confection & beverage flavor was forest fruits. Forest flavors is portrayed with pictures of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries and is always somewhat floral. My first impression of the Orbit wildberry remix is that it's forest fruits flavor from Europe. When I opened the packaged and smelled the gum, though, I changed my mind.

It reminded me of a berry flavored Starburst, and I love Starbursts. … [Read more...]

Extra Dessert Delights sugarfree gum Apple Pie review

Extra Dessert Delights sugarfree gum Apple Pie

It's never easy to have a holiday weekend come to an end. Personally, I celebrated with two dinners and lots of left overs. Celebrating involved gorging. There was ham, turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing, cranberries,  fresh rolls, appetizers, cheese plates, spinach dip, pumpkin pie and apple pie. My recovery plan is lots of water, exercise and healthy, low-calorie food. It's going to be difficult to resist the homemade apple pie I have in the fridge, though. Thankfully, Wrigley has my back and came out with the gum line Extra Dessert Delights sugar-free gum. One of their more recent launches is apple pie. I love apple pie, but will it be good as a chewing gum flavor? Well, Extra gum isn't AS good as apple pie, but it is … [Read more...]
