Free Stride Gum

June 24th, 2008 by Rosa

Stride Gum is having a promotion and giving away free packs of gum, if you have the patience to answer a bunch of silly questions. I asked for Always Mandarin.

I heard about this promotion from an internet freebie website. Coincidentally enough, in the same week, Stride Gum contacted me to ask that I help promote some new game they’ve got on their website (and said nothing about the free gum). So if you like playing games, there’s a candy themed one for you at Stride’s main website.

You can read my review of Stride Gum’s Forever Fruit flavor here.

In the U.S., gummi bears and gummi worms are the main gummi go-to treats, though other gummis are available. Here in the U.K., thanks to the popularity and ubiquity of Haribo, there’s a huge assortment of gummi shapes and flavors to choose from. My personal favorites for creativity, if not taste, are gummi hard boiled eggs, which feature a yellow gummi yolk on a white foam gummi albumen (see below).

I still, however, have yet to come across the absinthe gummi or the “lighthouse” gummi (not suitable for small children or safe for work; perfect for immature adolescents).

I’ve so far limited myself to just one bag of gummis since, as far as I can tell, they’re all variations on a theme, but if there’s any particular must-taste variety of Haribo out there, do let me know, and I’ll buy it if I see it.
