“ Manufacturer: Tesco / Type: Chewing Gum „
You'd think that a company couldn't go far wrong with making a chewing gum. After all, how hard can it be to make something so simple remotely palletable? Given that this isn't a dirt cheap product like some of their own brand products are, at 69p for a triple pack, I expected something decent from these even if they weren't up to Wrigley's standards.
I was sadly misguided in my decision to give these a try though, and was unable to even finish one packet. The other two packets were binned, as no-one else found these remotely acceptable either.
Opening up the fancy little cardboard box packaging, I was greeted with a chewing gum pellet that looked exactly like I expected it to look. It was plain white, had a good firm shell to it, and smelled faintly of the mint flavour I was looking forward to chewing on.
But when I started to chew it, I quickly realised that there is hardly any taste in these little hard pellets. And hard pellets they really are. Once you start to chew them, they just sort of disintegrate in your mouth - but don't really turn into chewing gum like you expect them too. I felt like the texture was one that I should be swallowing due to the lack elasticity in these.
I'm thoroughly disappointed with these and don't even think they're that cheap. I can get a five pack of Wrigleys extra for £1.39 which isn't that much more expensive per packet than these are - but infinitely tastier.
