“ Brand: Wrigleys / Type: Mints „
I dont buy a lot of chewing gum, but the only one I will buy is cherry menthol flavour airwaves.
I like the fact that the have a strong taste to them and it lasts a while and doesnt go away within a few minutes like a lot of chewing gum, and also keeps the breath smelling fresh. Not just that , they're good for helping with a blocked or stuffy nose which really does come in handy for me as i get a stuffy nose a lot with sinus problems and hayfever.
It also states on the back of the packaging that they are suitable for vegetarians which is good as some products dont state whether they are or not.
Airwaves do have different flavours of chewing gum, so if you aren't a fan of the cherry taste you can try some of the other flavours instead.
I would recommend!
Airwaves is part of the ever growing Wrigleys family and comes in four great tasting flavours Menthol and eucalyptus, Cherry Menthol, Black Mint and Green mint.
I think Wrigleys has come up with a brilliant idea with these gums. Once you pop one in your mouth it realises a cool breeze of menthol that freshens your breath and clears blocked passages. It almost make you feel free and has a very intense flavour .
I have to say Black mint is my favourite and each pack boasts 10 pieces of gum. A pack would usually set you back fourty pence. This works out at around four pence per piece. You can usually pick Airwaves up from any local corner shop or super market and are easy to spot as they are very eye catching and stands out in a crowd.
I usually go through around two pack per daily whilst sat at my desk (probably through bordom). The flavour of Airwaves usually stick around for a good hour or so before having to replace it with a new piece.
All in all this is a great tasting gum with an attractive look and it has lots of advantages compared to other brands. They certainly last longer in flavour and are great value for money.
When I think of chewing gum, I think of Wrigleys. When I think of wrigleys, I think of airwaves.
What is it?~~
It is a chewing gum in the form of a bar. As opposed to the regular (or what used to be regular) strips that used to be the norm, wrigleys were the first to introduce the bar shaped gum.
The shape of the gum makes access to it very easy. The package is cleverly designed so that you can slip out the gum and then close it up without risking staleness. It's very well designed.
There are numerous flavours. The most common is the blue, which is the normal mint. It is very nice and strong. The blue is a menthol extra flavour which gives a great powerful kick.
They give you a fantastic sensation in the mouth. The strength of the gum produces a sort of tingling, and is a really good result. Also your breath seems to always smell a lot nice.
They are one of the most well-known brands, and you can definitely trust in it.
My final opinion~~
Its a great gum, and I have never ever had a problem with it. It's really hard to think of any disadvantages of it... maybe there aren't any.
Wrigleys airwaves is a brill chewing gum.
There are quite a few varieties of this gum, but my favourite is the original, I find the ones with other flavours added, such as cherry just don't last as long and don't have as strong a kick to them.
If you have got a bit of a blocked nose, airwaves is great, as soon as you put it in your mouth the menthol starts to work and it's a great feeling when it clears your nose.
It comes with about 10 in a pack, and they are the little hard tablet like chewing gums. It costs about 50p a pack, which I think is quite reasonable compared to other gums out there.
I always buy this if I have got a bit of a blocked nose. If you are out in the cold though and you breathe in some cold air with this, it does give you a bit of a burning sensation, at the back of the throat, but for a quick fix clear of the nasal passage, these are really great.
The original is like a menthol flavour, which doesn't last particularly long, but longer than the other airwaves varieties, and it is a nice pleasant flavour.
I prefer these to minty chewing gums.
Wrigleys started making chewing gum in 1892 (it was initially a free gift that came with baking powder!)
The Cherry airwaves come in a packet of five ten piece of gum packs for around £1.75, making each individual pack around 35p (look out for deals I've seen them sell for a quid occasionally) and are meant to open your airwaves like a cough drop, in fact the cherry flavour tastes just like cherry Tunes! Which I used to eat as sweets as a kid ha-ha.
ts strong flavour is from the eucalyptus and menthol which are in the ingredients and are known to reduce nasal congestion.
I love the flavour of Cherry airwaves (not a fan of their black mint edition though), they are refreshing and as they are so strong I believe they I'm improve my breath (I really should ask my girlfriend though!)
The pack looks stylish with its dark red colour and they are suitable for vegetarians which to me seems obvious but perhaps lots aren't. one problem with the packs are the nutritional information each pack does have this but the information is for 100 grams and since I have now thrown away the main packet I have no idea how big each individual pack is, but still here is some of the nutritional information:
Energy 650 kJ/ 156 kcal
of which - Sugars 0g
of which - Saturated Fatty Acids 0g
A great product which tastes fantastic and also opens up your airwaves (a bit)

I always remember when I was a little girl, my dad always used to have packs of this in his wardrobe and I used to steal it! I didn't even like it at the time but I love it now. I have always thought it has been a little unpopular compared to other chewing gums but I have no evidence to prove this!
There are many flavours of airwaves and to name a few there is lemon, cherry and blackcurrant. These sound really sweet and tasty but there is a definate twist as you may have noticed by the name air waves! The gum comes in a little paper packaging as many of them do and they have different colours to match the different flavours.
Advantages of airwaves:
They definately clear out your system and make you breathe better if you have a cold. As soon as you chew in to them you have the vapour which is very strong but after a while you will find that it is actually quite pleasant and it makes your breath smell delightful.
This is also quite cheap and they taste yummy.
Disadvantages of airwaves:
A little too strong for children and even early teens I think!
Personally, I love to have these when I have a cold. The cherry flavour is definately my favourite as this is probably the sweetest and the one that has the least menthol in it! I love the way they remind me of what my dad used to do as well, I think it is really funny. You can buy these chewing gums from supermarkets and convenience stores. I have even spotted these in home bargains once and a five packs was £1.00 which is great, you just need to keep and eye out as this is one you should try.
I'm going to review airwaves because it's the brand of chewing gum I prefer, (especially the black one), however, you'll probably find that this is a review of chewing gum in general as well.
Chewing sugar free gum is known to help reduce dental decay and prevent bad breath. This is largely down to the fact that it stimulates saliva flow which helps to reduce the acidity of your mouth (which is a large factor in decay), increasing saliva flow also helps to reduce the proliferation of bacteria which can cause bad breath.
I usually concentrate on the anti-decay properties when recommending gum to my patients (if you look up Stephan Curve on google you'll understand why), and almost always it is news to them.
One point to note is that chewing gum whilst smoking is potentially bad for you as it prolongs the time which the carcinigens in tobacco smoke, are in contact with the oral mucosa. This can lead to an increased chance of developing oral mucosal lesions and ultimately oral cancer.
Other, perhaps less scientifically sound reasons for chewing gum include:
Reduction of cravings (like giving up smoking)
Weight loss (apparently chewing burns 11kCal per hour!!)
Airwaves in particular comes in several very strong flavours including Cherry, Black mint, and menthol and Eucalyptus.
The strong flavours of airwaves is the main reason I enjoy them so much, I find the flavour lasts a decent amount of time-my drive home is an hour and it does me well for at least that long.
Whilst I am a supporter of gum chewing in general, I abhor those who spit it on pavements, train furniture, under desks etc, as well as those who loudly chew and snap it for all to hear and see-yuck.
In all, sorry for not being massively specific about airwaves but I hope you have learnt something about gum and its goodness.
Now and then I do like to have a chewing gum to freshen up my breath while out somewhere. I couldn't be bothered to go and buy some the other day so I sneakily pinched my husbands off the kitchen side. I didn't take any notice of what they were until afterwards.
A dark blue pack of Airwaves with Menthol and Eucalyptus apparently. Hmm well they were free for me so I may as well try one.
Each chewing gum is a thin tablet like gum encased in a minty green looking shell. I bit into one and my god did I get a rush of air flow up my nose and through my airwaves. Oh now that is some clever stuff isn't it. These would easily clear a blocked nose with their strength and burn a tongue at the same time. The flavour is minty with a menthol hint, not overly so though. The flavour does die down a bit but that initial first crunch and chew is mindblowingly powerful and minty fresh.
You can purchase these in other flavours, but each flavour is limited in certain shops and most shops dont offer all the flavours or the flavours come and go now and then. These ones seem to be the most common and most sold.
If the initial strong burst of mint didn't knock me for six then I would probably give these a full five stars but it was just too strong for me. The chewing gums do freshen your breath though the way you would expect a gum too and the flavour also lasts a good while before it starts to lose it's taste.
I decided to try chewing gum in another probably futile effort to cut down the smoking. On previous attempts I have used gum as a distracter from smoking but it didn't quite work, a lot of gums on the market seem to lose their flavour quite rapidly and I just end up spitting it out after ten minutes or so. The main culprits appear to be the mint flavours so I found it quite strange that it was a mint flavour I chose to try again with.
This time however it was Airwaves Black Mint, which comes in a black wrapper with the word airwaves, emblazoned in bright green across its front face. It currently retails at around 36p in ASDA, or it works out cheaper if you go for a multi-pack. I wasn't quite sure if I was going to like it since for a start I hadn't a clue what Black Mint was. Turns out it a simple variation on mint gum. Well I say simple it's probably actually quite complicated. The gum tastes of mint alright but there is also a strong hint of eucalyptus, which gives it that airwaves blast of cool.
I was getting of fine when I was struck by yet another flavour and it took me a few seconds to decipher it interpretations on my tongue. I was reminded of another chewing gum I used to use years ago way back in the seventies............Stimarol. It was then that the final flavour became clear to me it was aniseed, a sort of liquorice aniseed. The three flavour complemented each other very well and although I'm not a great fan of chewing gum I did find myself enjoying this chew.
On my next visit to ASDA I chanced upon yet another in the vast array of flavours Airwaves has to offer, this time it was a definite favourite of mine Cherry. Cherry menthol to be precise, and again after the initial hit of the menthol the cherry flavour became quite evident and in fact became the more overpowering of the two flavours. The Cherry flavour was a bit cheaper than the Black Mint at around 33p. I have to say that I was impressed by the length of time the flavours remained testable, and I also have to say hand on heart that both flavours have served to help be reduce my cigarette intake..............not by a great deal but at least it is a positive start.
I remember a few years ago trying these for the 1st time, My mum got some free with a newspaper so we tryed them. i swear I thought I was going to be sick, the taste to them was so strong.
A few years later I tryed them again and I still think the same. Okay, so I want my teeth to be clean but not this way, they taste like god awful minty bleach or something. Good for some people I guess, but I much prefer a milder gum. I was also very aware that people could smell how strong it was when I was with them.
I will say though, if you have a cold or something, they really do unblock your nose much more effectivly than vapo rub! Try it!
I also naively tryed one of their other flavours, the cherry one, I should have known from my last experience that this was just not going to work for me. As they were even worse! Cherry flavoured minty yuckyness! MMHMM no thanks!
This is my opinion of course, you may love them if you like. strong minty tastes. However, if something a little less minty is your style, dont buy these!!
Airwaves come in packs of 10 pieces and are priced at about 45p a pack.
It's actually a little odd that I do like Airwaves as I'm not really a chewing gum person. A lot of chewing gum tastes horribly sweet to me, and smells even worse than it tastes, so I don't tend to use it much.
That said, I tend to suffer from sinus headaches, so anything that clears my sinuses is usually at least worth a try.
These, I've discovered, are GOOD for my sinuses. I've gotten into the habit of keeping a packet in my handbag, because I've learnt that if I catch it early I can use them to stop a sinus headache before it starts.
Nor do they taste bad. I've only really tried the cherry (I have a weakness for anything cherry flavoured) and I find the menthol stops the sweet from being overwhelming. If there's a fault, it's that the flavour goes too quickly -five minutes and it's gone. I've heard that too much sugarfree gum can be bad for your stomach (laxative effects, ahoy!), so I try not to have more than a couple of pieces per day.
One packet costs 32p, but if you use a fair bit you can get a five-pack for £1.30.
Wrigley's Airwaves is a chewing gum that helps unblock your nose and breath more easily. The original flavour is Eucalyptus and menthol and comes in a blue packet. It has quite a hot taste but is rather pleasant. It does work but the affect doesn't last that long. It's a bit like when you eat a curry it keeps your sinuses clear while your eating it but when you stop your nose blocks up again.
You can also get other flavous there is a yellow packet that is honey and lemon and they tastes like honey lockets these have a soothing flavour. The red packet is suppose to give you energy it contains Guarana, I can't say if it works because I have not tried it. There are a couple of other flavours but I don't know what they are.
The taste of these chewing gums lasts alot longer than most gums and are good for a quick relief.
They can be found in most shops, usually next to the checkout.
They cost between38p - 50p per pack and each pack has 7 pieces. The price varies depending where you buy them. I wouldn't recommend giving these to young children as they more than likely won't like the taste as they are strong.
This gum is better than most and is worth paying the extra
Airwaves is a well know brand of chewing gum, created by Wrigley's. They are also the creators of brands such as Orbit, Hubba Bubba, Extra, and Juicy Fruit.
Now on with the Chewing Gum, The packaging is a vibrant red colour, with the green lettering of airwaves going across the front. The Wrigley's logo is above . On the back you can find all the nutritional information, and ingredients, I wont bore you with this as you can find it all at Wrigleys.com.
The packet is real simple to open, and has two different ways; you can either open the flap at the top of the packet, or the easier way is to pull the tab that sticks out from the side. On pulling the silver tab, you will reveal a red line, this is like a guideline. Once you pull this you will reveal a silver like foil paper. Once you have done this, if you push one of the chewing gum pieces up, it will just pop out of the top of the packet.
The packet contains 10 pieces of a light pink pellet, with a soft crunchy coating. These are a rectangle shape pellet. Once you have the pellet in your hand, you can smell the cherry smell, although the smell is not that strong, but it is present. Which made me think as the smell was not that strong, that maybe the chewing gum did lack in flavour, but I was wrong. Very wrong lol.
So I popped the tiny pink pellet in my mouth, and started chewing, the chewing gum is quite crunchy at first, due to the crispy coating, but this soon goes.
Now on with the flavouring of the gum. What can I say but wow, and how hot. The flavour came out of the chewing gum as soon as it entered my mouth. It tastes very much of cherries, and the how sensation of the gum is huge, my throat was burning for the first two minutes of chewing. Although the taste does last longer, just it does not burn your mouth as much.The taste reminds me of cherry tunes only alot more hotter. The heat does not linger on your tongue, but goes straight to the back of your throat.
I have now been chewing away for a full ten minutes and I can still taste a slight cherry taste of the chewing gum, also this may sound weird, but if you put your tongue through the chewing gum as if to make a bubble, the taste gets stronger on your tongue, but if you don't like the heat of when you first started chewing the gum, then maybe you should not do this, as you do get the burning sensation once again on your tongue, and this is pretty hot so does really burn the tip of your tongue.
Also I would not recommend trying to blow bubbles with this, as I did and it does not work that well. The bubbles you can blow are only small, and once they pop it sticks to your mouth, and its very sticky loll. So unless you want a sticky lip, I would not try it loll.
This gum is sugar free, which means less fattening, although it does taste quite sweet. Sugar free gum is clinically proven to reduce tooth decay by up to 40% and is recommended by 85% of dentists. This is also good for if you are trying to stop smoking as chewing gum reduces the urge to snack, which is what most people do when they stop smoking. It is also good for when you do smoke, as it does seem to freshen your breath, and it made my teeth feel cleaner also. I also found that while chewing this gum I did not smoke as many cigarettes, so maybe this could be the aide to help you quit.
Now I bought this pack for a small 35p and it really is worth the money, the taste in the end lasted for a cool 30 minutes before I had to spit it out, and with 10 pellets per packet that's a good5 hours of chewing per packet. I don't think that could be beat for value. So why not have a try of these and decide for yourself. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
Also just to add this is very similar to my extra ice review, but i think the chewing gum is very similar in alot of ways except the taste and packaging. Also since writing the last review, i have decided to just try and quit smoking. So far this has lasted 2 days, i know not alot but it is for me and between the airwaves and extra ice i am managing to not have a cigarette. So i would advise trying this. If i can stop on these so can you. I was a heavy smoker, so it just goes to show that you do not need the expensive methods to stop.
