This is probably my favorite brand of gum. The commercials are funny; I like the packaging; and they come up with unique flavor blends like Maui Melon Mint. They also have flavors that are mixed drink-inspired like Fabulous Fruitini and Sangria Fresca. A flavor that has also been influenced by a cocktail is Mint Mojito.

I like mint gum a lot, so I wanted to see if this had an extra zing to it. These taste similar to a mojito. They don't taste super minty. They taste sweet and limey with a hint of mint. The pieces are 1 3/4 inches long. They are a nice size. They don't leave me feeling like I want another piece of gum just because they aren't big enough. They are firm when dry, but get soft quickly when they get moistened and chewed on.

A big huzzah for this flavor is that it lasts and lasts. I popped one in 30 minutes ago. The flavor was super-intense at first. It stayed powerful, with a slight degradation of intensity 10 minutes later. After an additional 10 minutes, it was fairly sweet. Finally at a full 30 minutes time, the gum ran out of steam. All the flavor and sweetness had been chewed out of it. I was impressed with the length of time it stayed yummy.
