Normally you probably buy chewing gum because you want the minty flavour to freshen your breath after a meal or something but when I have purchased Juicy Fruit from Wrigley's in the past it has been purely due to the flavour. You will find this variety in a yellow packet and within that you receive 10 sticks for between 30 and 40 pence.
Unlike many chewing or bubble gums this type from Wrigley's are in traditional stick format as opposed to a small piece of gum in a slightly harder shell which you often find. These sticks are soft to chew and should really pose no problems for teeth at all. When you first start to chew one of these sticks and unleash the flavour it really is magnificent. I really enjoy the fruity flavour of these although when the taste starts to fade away I could quite easily find myself with several sticks chewed in my mouth trying to hold on to the flavour as it is really wonderful.
This variety of gum really does stand out from many others in the market place and has stood the test of time offering a good alternative to all the minty gums currently available. Of course you can buy products such as Hubba Bubba but this Wrigley's item probably appears more sophisticated and more aimed at an adult shopper when held up against other fruit flavoured chewing gums which are directed towards children although personally this would not stop me from eating them.
Whenever I want to buy chewing gum Juicy Fruit is usually the first brand I opt for if fresh breath isn't a concern at that moment (in that case I choose Wrigley's Chewing Orbit/Extra). Today there was a bulk pack of seven lots of Juicy Fruit in Home Bargains which I thought was definitely worth picking up, and this is why I'm reviewing it for Dooyoo now.
'Juicy Fruit' Gum is a brand of gum from the popular Wrigley's company. It is recognisable by its dark yellow background and bold, blue font on the front of its packaging. Immediately it stands out and makes me want to grab it off the store shelf. You can find a pack of eight sticks in your local shop for about 40-50p, but you buy the packs in bulks themselves (e.g. the bulk lot I got) depending on where you shop. Considering there are many sticks of gum contained inside I think this is decent value.
It is easy to open a pack, because there is a light tab to use to rip open its top, allowing you to easily pick out a stick of gum. Each stick is wrapped in foil as usual with chewing gum, and this helps keep them fresh.
As I put a stick of gum into my mouth I notice that the texture is very smooth with a light covering of sugar over it and is easy for your teeth to turn into a bubbly ball of gum. The taste of Juicy Fruit is very nice being sweet and slightly tropical which is of course what the name suggests. Although the ingredients don't list any fruits for the gum (only flavourings, and even then it doesn't specify), there are hints of lemon, orange, grapes and more and they blend together for a delicious mouth-watering flavour. Unfortunately the flavour starts very intense and fades out after about a minute or two of constant chewing, and because the taste was so nice I soon picked up another stick...and another...
Overall I like Juicy Fruit because of the mixture of flavours in the gum and its high quality, but I think it could last a lot longer in my mouth. This is the only thing that lets it down, and I'm very pleased for my lot of seven for 99p which is good value. If you like simple chewing gum but with more flavour than the simple Wrigleys Orbit or Extra then Juicy Fruit is for you!
I remember this when I was a child I used to beg my mum for a packet of chewing gum. She never agreed with given me it but as kids do when they don't get something they either keep going on or ask someone else. So rather than ware my mother down I had asked my father to buy me a packet when we were at the local news agents when I was about 7 years old. He said that was fine as he never knew my mum had a problem with it. As you probably guessed I loved my dad so much for getting me something that I wasn't allowed lol. On the other hand my mother was not a happy bunny my poor dad suffered for it. Anyways enough chit chat it is time to get on with the important part of the review.
As you can see this is fun, bold, simple, but sticks out compared to most chewing gums. The main colour of the packaging is bright yellow, with blue writing advertising the Juicy Fruity chewing gum. Underneath it is has some red colours on it as well, I think that this is to represent the juice that flows from the mouth watering chewing gum. It is contained in a plastic covered tin foil and each are individually wrapped to keep each one fresh. There is 10 peaces of chewing gum in each packet.
***The Taste And Texture***
The sticks have a white substance on them and have a strong smelling sweet juicy smell that comes from them. They are soft, especially when you start chewing one. You immediately release all the juices in your mouth and your mouth starts watering straight away. It actually tastes really yummy. However, the juices start to disappear quite quickly about after 10-15 minutes, which is a bit disappointed. It tastes wonderful but you may get addicted to it and go through packs like there's no tomorrow! The texture of it in your mouth is rather thick and good quality chewing gum not like the chiklets that feel thin and pointless that you need 3 bits to make it the same consistency. And they are also great for blowing bubbles and I know your not surprised to but I can blow rather big ones with this chewing gum hehe.
***Price And Where Can I Find It?***
Wrigleys Chewing Gum was first introduced in 1893 and it is the oldest product of Wrigley's. It is rather hard to find these days as I haven't seen them in local newsagents anymore but you can find them in big supermarkets like ASDA in the sweet section. You cant buy these from there in individual packs but you can buy in a multi pack that consists of 4 packs for £1. That's 25 pence a packet. Years ago they used to cost 35 pence a packet so I suppose buying this chewing gum now you are saving 10 pence per packet, woo hoo.
I love these chewing gum its nothing that a taste you've ever tasted before. Although the taste disappears quickly they still taste good and lets face it wither you want to admit it or not well all blowing a little bubble every now and then. With these being rather big because the chewing gum is thick you can have so much fun with them. At 25 pence a pack its worth a try you could even give a packet to your friends and see who can make the biggest bubble of so me and my friends are needing to grow up a little bit but everyone is allowed a little fun every now and then even if it is a little pointless haha.
I would recommend this product and anybody that is a chewing gum fan or maybe for those that haven't tried this flavour yet. I would rate it a 8 out of 10 even though they are very moorish.
I would just like to take the time to thank for reading through my review. I hope that it was of some use to you and I have persuaded you to try something new. Thanks again, it is very much appreciated.
I actually don't like chewing gums much. I always get this pain on my jaw when I chew for about 20 minutes.
When I ran out of my mint candies, a friend handed me a pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit Chewing Gum and I thought I had to try it.
ABOUT THIS CHEWING GUM
Wrigley's Juicy Fruit Chewing gum was introduced in 1893. It is the oldest product of Wrigley's. In 1974, Juicy Fruit leads the launching of using UPC codes and it is the first product with a bar code that has been scanned with a hand-made laser scanner in Troy, Ohio. In 2007, Juicy Fruit Chewing Gum was amongst the Wrigley's products to become the official chewing gum of of National Basketball Association.
The strips are neatly packed in a yellow thick paper. The good thing about the pack is that it's not glued on. I just have to lift the folded triangular excess of the paper at the end and tear it. Every 3-inch strip is sealed with a silver foil to keep the freshness. The strips have beige colour and are so soft.

True to its name, Wrigley's juicy Fruit Chewing gum is indeed very juicy. It is the juiciest chewing gum that I have ever tasted. It tastes like juices of different fruits added with sugar. Its sugary-sweet taste is nice. However, the sweetness doesn't last that long. The flavour goes out after about 7 minutes of chewing it. It's actually good enough for me because I don't really like to chew longer. But for those who love to chew regularly, then they need to change the chewing strip every 7 minutes. It's good that this chewing gum doesn't disintegrate in the mouth like some chewing gums do.
Price: 35p for a pack of 10 strips
For my latest review I have chosen to review one of my favourite chewing gums. Wrigleys are one of the most well known brands in the United Kingdom and have had a number of popular chewing and bubble gum products over the years including this particular variety "Juicy Fruit". This is officially a chewing gum but has the flavour of a bubble gum as normally chewing gums tended to be just minty in either spearmint, peppermint or indeed Doublemint. This has been going since 1893 and has seen a number of different looks.
These were originally in soft strips of gum but they now come in the same little gums as most Wrigleys chewing gums. They have a light complexion and once you bite into them you instantly get the fruity taste of the inside which is a mixture of fruits. I have had a few packets of these over the years and I have been impressed by the staying power of the flavour compared to other fruit flavoured gums on the market especially from Wrigleys competition but they are certainly not as long lasting as the standard chewing gums from Wrigleys. I also like the aroma which you can smell which is a nice fruity scent.
I would recommend these to anyone who likes chewing gum, especially if you like your chewing gum fruity. As these are around the same price You get a pack of 10 sticks for around 35p which is about the same as the mint chewing gums it is not going to cost you any more to try this one. So summing up this is a nice chewing gum but it does not quite live up to the best chewing gums from Wrigleys.
Juicy Fruit chewing gum is made by Wrigley's and has a fantastic flavour. It is definitely the juciest one you can buy as it really gets the flavours going. It tastes really nice but it has one major problem, which is that this fabulous taste doesn't last long enough!
The chewing gum is widely available in supermarkets and shops. You get a pack of 10 sticks for around 35p. This is great as the sticks are of a good size, but it can get the way when you're talking, as they are a bit larger than pieces.
The packet is bright yellow and has a blue Juicy Fruit logo in rounded writing with a red design too. You simply peel open the end and you can lift out sticks to eat. The sticks lift out, which are packed in foil with a yellow paper juicy fruit logo on them. As soon as the packet is even open, the beautiful and characteristic aroma of the chewing gum will fill the air.
If you leave a packet in a draw for example, it will just smell of this gum every time you open the draw! The smell is quite nice actually, but some people don't like chewing gum at all and its characteristic smell gives it away and is quite powerful.
The sticks have a white substance on them and smell pretty strong too. They are soft, especially when you start chewing one. You immediately release all the juices in your mouth and the rather large gum tastes fantastic. However, the juices start to wear down quite a bit after 10-15 minutes, which just isn't good enough for a chewing gum. It tastes wonderful but you may get addicted to it and go through packs like there's no tomorrow! It's not terribly cheap but I would still recommend trying them out.
Thanks for reading,
