Disclosure: I received the products mentioned to facilitate my review. Regardless, I only recommend products I feel would be good for my readers. All opinions are my own and those of my family.
Once upon a time I was a gum chewer. It’s a really great stress reliever! I stopped chewing gum a few years ago, though, when I started to become more aware of the ingredients in different products. Many gums have all kinds of nasty ingredients like food dyes and artificial sweeteners. I have a particular dislike for artificial sweeteners because so often they are advertised as “safe” when really they are far from it.
I think many people are more aware of the dangers of aspartame and mostly try to avoid it. Many, though, have turned to sucralose, which is a chlorocarbon. I’ve been able to link sucralose to triggering my migraines and Fibromyalgia flare ups. I’m so glad I decided to turn away from unnatural ingredients anyway after learning more about the dangers in all those artificial ingredients! Phew!
So what is one to do? There are actually many advantages to chewing gum! Chewing sugarless gum after a meal stimulates bacteria-fighting saliva and dislodges food particles for example. And now I have found a sugarless and aspartame-free gum that is ALSO free of other artificial sweeteners like sucralose as well! Talk about an exciting find! Do you want to know what makes it even more exciting, though?
PÜR Gum is vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, nut-free, diabetic friendly and dairy free, too! All their ingredients are certified, so you can count on them to be “pür!” Plus it is naturally sweetened with Xylitol, which is good for your teeth!
For my review I received the four varieties of PÜR gum: Wintergreen, Pomegranate Mint, Spearmint, and Peppermint. Wintergreen is always a personal favorite of mine, but I was most eager to try the Pomegranate Mint because I was intrigued by the idea of pomegranate and mint! It did not disappoint! It does have that hint of pomegranate but with a cooling mint as well! It is really a unique combination, and I might have to say it’s my favorite!
The other three varieties were definitely nice as well, though, and didn’t disappoint either! In fact, I was really impressed with how long the flavor lasts for me! One thing I always disliked about chewing gum was how quickly it would lose flavor, but PÜR gum held up pretty well for the length I could chew it and still have flavor! My husband commented on how long the flavor lasts for him as well. My mouth feels fresh and cool when I’m chewing them and for quite a while afterwards.
Something else that was pleasantly surprising is that PÜR gum doesn’t hurt my teeth. Long story short, I have some major issues with my teeth, and they are extremely sensitive. Not once did chewing PÜR gum ever make them react! That was a big deal to me particularly considering how long I would be chewing it!
I am so happy I was introduced to PÜR gum and can chew gum again! I am also happy that I discovered this safer alternative for our kids as well because they have become very curious about gum lately! Now there is a gum they can chew, too, and I don’t have to worry about all the harmful ingredients!
With Christmas right around the corner PÜR gum would make a great gift! They would be perfect stocking stuffers or a nice addition to a mug or basket. You can feel good knowing you’re giving a gift with safe ingredients that they will love, too! You can purchase PÜR gum on Amazon in 2.82 ounce bags or a 12-pack of the 9 count packets like those I received for my review.
