Orbit Mist

As promised yesterday (I rearranged things to publish this review two days early; yesterday’s post originally promised the gum review for Friday), I’ve got a new gum review for y’all courtesy of a generous box of free samples from Wrigley. By the way, they called me the wrong name in the form email they sent…

Smarties Bubble Gum

I did not know that Smarties Bubble Gum existed until I fished it out of a tub at an Asian grocery store (which is probably why it was all water-spotted). I’ve never seen them sold elsewhere, but maybe it can be found at a penny/bulk candy shop of some sort? Smarties Bubble Gum is quite…

Asian Candies IV

More Asian candy, including one actually bought in Asia. Oooh! Japanese Money Chocolate This chocolate bar was given to me by my suitemate’s Japanese friends who came all the way from Japan to visit her. I have no clue what it’s called; I’ve chosen to dub it Japanese Money Chocolate because it came wrapped up…

Cookie Week and how to win a truck trunk full of gum

Emily’s Chocolates reminded me that this week is National Cookie Week. I’ve missed Monday (oops; this week has been hectic), but there’s plenty more Cookie Week left! And Emily’s Chocolates’ cookies look goooood. Free shipping on orders over $30 before November 23rd. They sent me some samples (review to come later), but I didn’t get…

Cock-a-doodle Chew – This Gum Tastes Like Chicken!

Is it weird that I got really excited to see this gum that tastes like chicken? It was bizarre enough to be intriguing, and I was already imagining how I could casually brag about my brave willingness to try chicken-flavored gum. Upon closer inspection, however, disappointment. Cinnamon. Yummy, but in this context, boring. Cassie was…

First Home Game!

Here’s where I let my personal life creep into my candy blog, as promised in my opening post. I’m so excited about today’s home opener! Go Bulldogs! Yay football! Let’s make this candy related: We’re playing Cornell, aka the Big Red. Big Red is also the name of a cinnamon gum that I hated as…

5 Gum: Is It Just Marketing? [Review]

As I wrote in an earlier post, I got quite the 5 gum package from Wrigley via BzzAgent. The BzzGuide booklet that came with it was far more elaborate than I expected. Some excerpts: “Comes in stick form, which is the most popular.” “Because of its distinct design, you can open the pack with just…

Free 5 gum!

EDIT: This contest is now closed. I got this pretty sweet package in the mail from BzzAgent for their new 5 gum promotion. It’s enough gum to keep me chewing for a while, so I thought I’d share it with the rest of the world. I’ve opened the Flare (cinnamon) already, but I’ll give away…

Stride Forever Fruit Gum

I personally rather like the ad campaign that Stride (BUY!) has been running. The commercials I’ve seen revolve around the company and those that sell it going out of business because the flavor lasts so long that people don’t need to buy new packs. The packaging is like that of Dentyne’s soft gum, which makes…
