      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great gum.

      For me Trident is a decent make and they're famous for all their fruity gums. I find that this product is full of flavour. They're very sweet until you hit the center of the sweet and you feel a quick burst of bitterness before the sweetness comes back. These chewing gums last around 30 minutes of chewing time before they start to go rock hard and hurt your jaw.

      The chewing gum itself is white and quite hard. They are square ad filled with a very light green liquid. Which most of the time is more of a jelly consistency. The one great thing about this gum is also that it is sugar free. The packaging is a slip case and the outer cardboard is dark red with a fruity red splash. The front has the branding logo of the chewing gum in black and green and the back of the case has the ingredients of the product. The gum themselves are foil sealed and the foil has the logo on again.

      I would highly recommend Trident Strawberry and Lime for a nice refreshing chewing gum with a lovely burst of juice. The price is also very cheap. I get mine from Home Bargains for less than 50p at a time. I have been buying this gum since it first came out and since then the price has plummeted. They used to be around £1.50 per pack. However, they did not lower the price because of the quality of this gum. The quality is great.

      It 's good and have new design. I like it.

      If you find chewing gum, please try Trident splash Strawberry and Lime. It have new package design in Bottle Shape for every flavors. Sugar free center filled gum. It look good.
      http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008STK35C Please see following this link.
      I have been buying this gum since it first came out. It is my wife favorite. Suddenly we can't find it at any of the stores and I was beginning to panic. I was relieved to find it on Amazon. I always have good luck with Amazon and did not hesitate to place my order. I feel I must clarify for anyone reading these reviews, this gum has always been sugar free, as almost every gum you purchase is these days.
      I really like this gum. It has a refreshing flavor, and leaves your mouth feeling clean. The manufacturer has changed the gum slightly from the posted picture. It now has a red candy type coating instead of the white. This gum is hard to find but well worth it.

      shame about the chewing time

      I spotted this chewing gum in my local corner shop and although more expensive than regular gum (about 70p a packet) I was very intrigues to try it. The packaging is very different to other chewing gums as each peice is sealed within a 3 x 3 blister back. Although novel, I don't really understand the appeal of this as it gives it a medical feel, more like taking a tablet out of it's packet than relaxing with a peice of gum. This packaging also has the hinderence of needing a larger box. This is a lot less convenient than a stick of gum which can fit handily in a pocket or hanbag.

      The gum itself is also unusual. The square shaped pieces are quite large and are covered in a crunchy shell coating. Once bitten into the gum contains a liquid centre which contains the strawberry and lime flavouring. This combination of flavours may sound a bit dodgy but surprisingly it works quite well. The gum has a very strong flavour and is very tasty.

      The gum is a nice consistancy not too hard to chew but enough to keep your jaw busy. It has a refreshing taste which is actually quite uplifting.

      The most disappointing thing about this gum is the chewing time. Within ten minutes all the flavour has gone leaving it absolutely tasteless. Very frustrating considering how nice it tastes but I think from the price I paid for it I expected a bit more than that. Compared to manufacturers like wrigley who's gum flavouring lasts a lot longer this is very poor.

      This leaves me with mixed views about the gum. It is definately unique in design and flavour but the major flaw in it's length of use has left me very disappointed. I think from now on I will stick to the handy size wrigley's gum to get me through the day.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      has otential to be a great product!

      I find chewing gum really addictive in that I always want to be chewing something, but normal chewing gum is so minty that if you're not having it to freshen your breath it can be a bit sickly and strong. So in terms of origniality, this flavour certainly scores high! I was surprised at how well the flavour combination worked. In honesty, I might not have even tried it had I not been attracted by the packaging! It even looks tasty and the design of the packet ensures the chewing gum stays fresh as the pieces are individually wrapped in the foil (a bit like paracetamols if you get me).
      The problem with this chewing gum though is that although it is lovely when you first bite into it and you get that burst of fruity flavour (which really is delicious), it is short-lived as once that's gone it tastes of hardly anything and then you really just want to spit it out after like 10 minutes. And that's the disappointment because it really is lovely at first but Trident haven't quite cracked it with the product yet! A little more work and they'll have me hooked.

      Trident Splash- Strawberry and Lime

      I have bought these quite a few times now and I do think they deserve to have a review written on them! They are probably the nicest flavour chewing gum that I have ever actually tasted! I would have never put strawberry and lime together but it is actually a really good combination. Trident has only been around in the UK for a few years but they do make some of the nicest flavours of chewing gum ever, they taste so yummy and I would love the taste to last forever.

      Basically, as you can see above the chewin gum comes in a pack of nine in which each individual is eparated into a plastic sort of tray with a foil covering. There is then a cardboard sleeve that you can see on the above image which tells you about the product. The front of the packet has a red and green theme with a picture of the gum on it which is quite helpful and on the back there is some useful information. These gums are a little bit fatter than usual chewing gum and they are a bit oddly shaped.

      When you pop one of these into your mouth and start to chew it is a little bit crunchy but when you get into it and the lime liquid starts to release, it does taste rather exotic! When you have chewed these for a little bit the Strawberry taste is more predominant which is still pleasant.

      Advantages:

      10p from home bargains!
      Taste great
      Not too sweet
      Good combination
      Brilliant Idea

      Disadvantages

      Flavour goes quickly
      Little bit addictive!
      Not good for teeth!

      I think these are a really great flavour and I will be eating them again!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Avoid, and opt for a minty gum

      Trident Splash Strawberry and Lime Sugarfree Gum has only recently been introduced onto the market, perhaps in the past couple of years, and yet seems to have established itself as a brand that can rival its well known competitors, such as Wrigleys and Extra. The gum has a liquid centre and is sugarfree, and instead uses sweeteners to add its distinctive taste.

      - Packaging

      The gum comes in packs of 9, in a 3 x 3 packet. Each piece of gum is in its own little compartment, and each compartment is covered with foil. This ensures that the gum remains fresh and doesn't become damp - I often find this to be the case with brands such as Extra and Wrigley, who just package their gum in one large packet and do not wrap them individually. The little 'tray' of gum is then inside a card sleeve, which further maintains the quality of the gum.

      - Taste

      The first bite into the gum is fabulous - a real sweet taste and a rush of flavour. However, after literally around 1 minute, the gum loses an incredible amount of flavour and the taste becomes quite bland. Although the strawberry and lime flavours are still evident, they are more sour and bitter than full of flavour. Furthermore, after getting rid of the gum, it leaves a horrid taste in your mouth and does nothing in the way of freshening breath or removing the taste of previously consumed food!

      - Size

      Each piece of gum is quite large in size hence it is quite a jaw work out to keep chewing it after a certain point! I think the gum pieces are far too large and could easily be half the size. The fact that they are so big means that you are effectively paying for 2 pieces of gum when you only get 1!

      - Verdict

      Although I was impressed at the packaging of the gum and how fresh it keeps the gum, it doesn't seem to me that the gum is worth keeping fresh! It is rather tasteless, apart from in the first minute or so, and it leaves a horrible taste in your mouth. If I were you, I'd ditch Trident for a better, fresher gum.

        Disadvantages

        Don't waste money on this brand!

        Trident Splash Strawberry and Lime Sugarfree Gum

        Description; chewing gum.


        Gone are the days when you only had a few minty flavours of chewing gum, there are now lots of different varieties, boasting intriguing sounding new flavours. When I saw the strawberry and lime flavour, I was tempted so bought a packet to see if it tasted as good as it sounded.

        I paid a shocking £0.55 for a packet with 9 chewing gums in it (from my local shop), which I can't help feeling is very expensive. You can also buy this gum from petrol stations, supermarkets etc, they come in a bright red cardboard packet with the logo on the front and the gum itself is contained in a foil backed packet inside.

        This product is sugar free and contains 175 calories per 100 grams of chewing gum.

        These have a very weird texture. They are called Trident Splash because they have a liquid centre, so you bite into the crunchy, hard exterior and then find a jelly like liquid in the middle. This isn't unpleasant but feels strange, so takes a little getting used to when you start eating them!

        The exterior chewing gum part has quite a bland taste, whereas the liquid centre is quite strong and sweet. Again this is a little strange because it seems to sweet to be a chewing gum.

        One of the reasons that I chew gum is because I like how fresh it makes my mouth feel. I didn't find that with this one, in fact, it was so sweet that it left a slightly funny aftertaste. Having said that, the flavour also faded really quickly, and I was soon left chewing gum with no flavour at all.

        I persevered and finished the packet, hoping that the taste would grow on me, but it didn't and I ended up feeling quite disappointed. For the price, I had high hopes for this gum and it didn't live up to them so I won't be buying it again.

        I wouldn't recommend this, save the extra money and buy your usual brand!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Stick to mint

        OK...so when I write reviews of products I usually find it easy to write 600-1000 words on something that I enjoy. Unfortunately, this is a product that I really did not enjoy and left me feeling really disappointed.

        Yes, now I know that I should not allow myself to be goverened by advertising, but the adverts for this product would have you believe that the chewing gum is full of juice that is exciting and tasty.

        I found out the following:

        * The juice taste lasted for about 30 seconds - then the chewing gum tasted gritty

        * The flavours were over sweet, artificial to the point where I wanted to spit them out and not anything like what they should be

        * The packet design (with the liquid 'splashing' everywhere) just did not live up to expectations

        * The chewing gum was reasonably priced when compared to the market leaders...but did not live up the expectations I have of those produces, particularly with the longevity of the taste expectation

        * The packet inside made them look like nicotine chewing gum and as a non smoker I did not want people casually glancing into my bag and thinking that I was fighting a craving!

        This was a real disappointment to me and I would imagine that others felt the same. I really enjoy fruity chewing gum, but this product left a bitter taste in my mouth. I hope that as the product develops, they will spend more time on improving the flavours, I mean...we all know what a strawberry and lime should taste like and it seems they chose the cheapest fake taste available to them for this brand.

        Enough said!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Delicious chewing gum with a unique burst of flavours

          I have tried this chewing gum recently as part of the Trident Splash range and I must say that it's very tasty and somewhat unique. It has a soft centre where intense juices of strawberry and lime flavours come rushing out and fill your mouth with an intense flavour as you chew the tasty gum.

          The gum comes in a red little cardboard box. The black trident logo is on the front and there is a green 'Splash' logo to signify the variety. Below is the flavour - strawberry and lime with a cross section image of the chewing gum. The box is simple, yet bright and very attractive. It opens up to reveal 9 good-sized pieces of gum, which are almost square.

          The pieces of gum are a bit fat as they contain a soft centre, which is green. The outside is white and the actual chewing gum still has a flavour to it, but the soft centre helps to burst more intense flavours into your mouth once you start chewing. As soon as you put one in your mouth, you can taste the sweet yet light taste of the chewing gum and the strawberry flavour is predominant. Once you bite into the gum, an overwhelming intense and powerful sweet liquid bursts in your mouth and is rather joyful and tasty. It's somewhat pointless in the way the liquid just gets swallowed away quickly, but it helps give a burst of flavour and prolongs the general flavour of the gum for longer.

          The chewing gum is of great quality and I'd highly recommend it. It's really unique and works very well but it does cost around 50p for a pack, which is considerably pricey. However, I'd still recommend it as they are thoroughly delicious and really unique. The flavours are intense and unique and they go very well together.

          Thanks for reading,

          Dan ©

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Grab a pack from Home Bargains!

            I have recently discovered the wonderfulness of Trident Splash Strawberry and Lime chewing gum.

            * Packaging *

            The rectangular packets are easy to spot on the shelf - bright red with the name of the flavour (you can also get trident Splash gum in flavours such as apple & apricot and vanilla & mint). Once opened (just slide the cardboard away), there are nine pieces of gum inside individual sort of bubbles, which you pop out (like tablets).

            * The Taste *

            Strawberry and Lime may sound like an odd combination, but trust me - it really works! Once you put the gum in your mouth, the first chew greets you with a strong burst of flavour. The first few bites bursts open the outer coating of the gum, so the liquid inside can come out. The strawberry flavour is the more predominant of the two, and lasts for quite awhile. After some time, you will notice that the taste starts to wear off.

            * Where To Buy & Price *

            The chewing gum is available in supermarkets, corner shops, ect - anywhere that sells sweets. Be warned though: it is pricey at 50p for nine pieces. I know a lot of people who think this too much to spend on a small amount of gum. However, I solve this problem by purchasing my packets of gum from Home Bargains. From there, they're only 10p! That's just over 1p per piece, which I think is much better value.

            * Nutrritional Information *

            No need to worry about your teeth falling out with Trident Splash, because the gum is sugar free. There are 175 calories per 100 grams of chewing gum.


            * Conclusion *

            Overall, I really enjoy eating Trident Splash Strawberry and Lime chewing gum. I will have to knock a star off for the price though.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Great tasting gum

              I buy chewing gum on a regular and frequent basis. I usually look out for whatever gum is on offer and at the moment Cadbury Trebor Basset's Trident Splash fits that bill. It can normally be found priced at around 45p to 59p for a pack but at the moment it is 3 packs for £1 in Poundland and Iceland and 75p for 2 packs in Superdrug.

              Each pack contains 9 tablets of gum. The packaging is over elaborate, consisting of a plastic rectangle with 9 indents for the gum. The plastic is foil backed so that you press through the plastic and force the gum out via the foil. An open-ended cardboard sleeve encases the plastic frame. At 9cm x 6.5cm x 0.8cm it is quite bulky and doesn't easily sit in a trouser/jean pocket.

              As you crunch through the crisp outer coating you're met with a soft, chewy centre and the release of a fruity liquid. The fruit can be imagined to be strawberry with the background hint of lime but these flavours aren't overtly obvious. The extreme fruitiness is pleasant but doesn't last for more than a minute or two, by which time it has developed a nondescript, general sort of sweet fruit flavour. The gum is very soft and retains good form for a considerable amount of time (I've happily chewed one piece of gum for well over an hour).

              It's sugar-free and. may contain sesame seed and nut traces. The ingredients are atypical of those found in most gums - sweeteners (including Sorbitol), bovine gelatine (yuk! - I don't like the sound of that), emulsifier, thickening agent and flavouring.

              This is a good gum and one that I would certainly recommend, especially if you can buy it on an offer. Always dispose of your gum responsibly - wrap it and bin it!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Its much better than spearmint flavour!

                I was looking for some chewing gum to keep me occupied instead of eating chocolate, and was enticed by Trident Splash gum's brightly coloured box amongst all the boring Wrigley's boxes.
                This gum is different to regular gum - its gum with a fruity liquid centre.
                You get nine pieces per pack, and they come in a blister pack (like paracetamol do) which slides into a cardboard sleeve. This keeps the gum nice and fresh and helps lock in the flavour. The pieces of gum themselves are quite big - around 2 x 1 centimetres. They are white in colour.
                They are sugar free, but do have a few E numbers in the ingredients (four to be precise). The pack states that the gum may contain sesame seed or nut traces - so people with serious allergies to these need to be careful. The box also says that excessive consumption may cause laxative effects - though we are given no indication as to what constitutes "excessive"! I've eaten three pieces of gum in one day and not seen any ill effects.
                So what does it taste like? Well, on first bite of the gum you can feel the liquid centre ooze out. This gives a wonderful fruity taste. The gum is nice and soft and chewable - the way it should be! After five minutes you can still taste the fruity flavour (though it has faded a bit), and the gum still has its soft chewiness. Just recently I tried Trident Soft gum and that was not very nice, it went rubbery after a couple of minutes, but this gum stays gummy!
                Overall I think this is a good choice of gum, with an interesting flavour, much better than spearmint!!

                Disadvantages

                a nice but expensive product

                I love this gum, i get it evderyday it's great, it tastes really nice. The packaging looks really good it's red and green.

                It tastes really nice, it comes in a easy to use container, which you can just slide off. There is a variety of flavours even to suit people with the fussiest of tastes. There is a really nice liquid centre, it tastes much nicer than most chewing gum, and it lasts much longer before it loses its taste.

                There is only 9 pieces of gum in each packet which is a lot less than in a normal trident pack. The price although they can be picked up quite cheaply if you know the right places to look, is very unreasonable for such a small pack, and is much more expensive than most chewing gum.

                Overall this tastes much nicer than most chewing gum but you pay more for it.

                  Disadvantages

                  Try it - some will like it - some will hate it!

                  The packaging:
                  This chewing gum comes in a brightly colour sleeve which definatly appealed to the child in me! Inside the sleave is a packet much like what tablets come in, the gum can then be popped out when you want one. This is great as it keeps the gum fresh if you dont eat it all right away.

                  The Center:
                  Hmmm it wasnt really a splash more of an oooze, it was pretty nice though. I cant describe the feeling but its quite weird. You have to try it to get what I mean!

                  The flavour:
                  Who would have thought it, strawberry and lime mixing to form a yummy flavour. It sounds disgusting but it actually tastes quite nice in a weird sort of way! The flavour is pretty long lasting which makes a change - I get quite annoyed when the flavour is gone after 10 minutes!

                  According to trident: "the strawberry flavour does a great job at taming the tangy lime flavour while the lime flavour adds a little zing in the strawberry flavour's life!"
                  Not how I would have explained it but... its a nice flavour.

                  Summary:
                  A good idea for those who dont like mint or simply fany somthing different. They are particullarly useful for those who want to not eat so many sweets as they taste sweet yet they're sugar free! Brill!
                  Theyre a love - hate product. Some will love them some hate them... what do you think of them?

                  Whist walking through the supermarket today, I noticed 'Trident Splash' for sale next to the checkouts, a strawberry and lime flavoured chewing-gum with a liquid centre. Each of the colourful packets contain nine individual gums, and retail at 49p from Tesco. I generally chew gum a lot of the time, and decided to give this interesting looking product a go - it would make a change from my usual Wrigly's Extra.

                  In terms of the ingredients, the product contains;
                  Sweeteners (Maltitol, Sorbitol, Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Gum base, Stabiliser (Glycerol), Flavourings, Gelatine (Bovine), Acids (Malic Acid, Citric acid), Emulsifier (Soya lecithin), Colours (E171, E104, E133), Glazing agent (Canuaba wax), and Thickener (E466).

                  The above list is packed with dodgy ingredients, including a lot of e-numbers, the potentially harmful Aspartame, and Bovine Gelatine (essence of mashed up cow!) - so this product is certainly not suitable for vegetarians.

                  The packaging states that "No real fruits were used or harmed in the making of this chewing gum", and whilst the makers are trying to be humerous with this sentance, it does bring home how artificial the product is.

                  Each of the chewing gum resemble an oversized Wrigley's Extra - a square white object with rounded corners. The first bite releases the lime flavoured centre which actually tastes pretty good, and the white sugar shell is quick to dissolve, yet very crunchy for the first ten or so chews. As something which is supposed have a 'liquid centre', these gums are quite disappointing - the centre doesn't burst open into the mouth, it's more of a slight moistness that you can detect - certainly nothing special.

                  The second problem I found with Trident Splash, is that the flavour disappears very quickly. In under a minute of one of these being inside your mouth, the delicious strawberry and Lime taste has all but gone, leaving you with a bland lump of rubber to munch on - which isn't so pleasant.

                  Trident Splash is a product I won't be buying again - although the initial flavour is very pleasant, the short 'chew-life' of each of the gums, combined with the dodgy ingredients is enough to put me off. These seem really to be marketed at kids, and whilst I didn't personally find them that appealing, I'm sure there are lots of people out there who would enjoy the novelty of the liquid centre.
