Extra Strong Trebor Gum
Advantages: Nice and Strong
Disadvantages: No better than 'Extra'
Whilst at the supermarket today, my attention was caught by the packs of 'Trebor Extra Strong Chewing Gum' which were stacked opposite the checkout. In terms of my regular chewing gum purchasing habits, I normally just opt for the good old fashioned 'Wrigley's Extra' - but I though I would give these new Trebor branded suagar-free chews a go.
Available in both Peppermint and Spearmint flavour, both varieties cost around 38p in most supermarkets for the ten 'pellet' pack. This review is specifically for the Peppermint version, which comes in a white, red, and green packet.
Trying to open the wrapping is a bit of an issue - there are no easy-open pull tabs like the Wrigleys gum - in fact, I got so frustrated whilst trying to get into them, I handed the pack to someone else so they could do it for me - not good so far Trebor.
Once you get to the stage where you can actually put them in your mouth however, it is instantly apparent that the gum is identical in size and shape to Wrigley's Extra. Each of the gums take the form of a white pellet with a hard crunchy outer shell... very familiar.
The initial flavour is strong, although not too strong to make them unpleasant - you do get quite a minty blast which lasts for a couple of seconds. Actually, I would argue that the taste is most pleasant after a minute or so of chewing, and overall, the flavour lasts for a decent few minutes before fading.

The contents of this particular gum are as follows;
Sweeteners (Sorbitol, Isomalt, Mannitol, Maltitol Syrup, Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Gum Base, Humectant (Glycerol) (non animal), Thickener (Gum Arabic), Flavourings, Emulsifiers (E472a, Sunflower Lecithin E435), Colour E171, Glazing Agent (Carnauba Wax) and Antioxidant (E321).
Due to the handy size of its packet, and reasonable price, I would normally recommend a product of this sort - however, it seems that Trebor have made an exact replica of Wrigley's Extra without really adding anything new. Due to the fact that they are hard to get into, I think I'll stick to what I know for the time being..
