Ever spoke to someone and they seem to be holding their breath when talking to you for some reason? No....? Well ever just felt you breathe smelt bad? Even maybe just wanted to freshen up for your boyfriend or girlfriend? Then again sometimes you just need to chew on something. Well the possibilities for chewing gum of any sort could go on and then i would just be boring you, right?

So why do you ask should you use Wrigley's extra and to be more specific peppermint (which is one of the most common and most origin extra). Aka..The Little Blue Packet. Well the answer to that is simply why not? Wrigleys have been manufacturing chewing gum for about 100 years and are evidently the leading brand in the chewing gum market. Secondly, most people think extra give the longest lasting taste out of all the various gums. Another reason is that is is cheap with prices around 40p give or take 5p and that gives you 10 pieces of gum. Plus the most obvious reason is that it just tastes GOOOOOD!

Let's take a sort of test or sample right this instant. I am going to start chewing Wrigleys Extra Peppermint Sugarfree Gum and describe what sensations my taste buds get from the moment i put it into my mouth, to the moment it loses it's taste. Well as i put it into my mouth the first sensations that arrive are cold and smooth. I can also feel that it feels kind of rectangle shaped. Biting into the gum i get an instant fresh burst of mint; peppermint of course to be more precise. After chewing for a couple of seconds it becomes a lot less hard and more chewable(if that is even a word). The taste lasts for quite a while but maybe not as long as you would hope for, but hey! nothing else can beat it except Airwaves which are of course still made by Wrigleys!! Anyway, after some time it begins to feel very bland and sort of "play-dough" like. When i was a lot younger i remember putting that stuff from school in my mouth and it was not nice i can assure you but i mean what kid hasn't tried putting some sort of strange object in their mouth!

The design of the packet is not too over elaborate and not too plain. It is just perfect. Before opening the packet, the main colours are white and blue. Blue mainly being in the background and white for the letters, although at the back the ingredients and nutritional information, which i will cover later, are in black. The inside packaging is made of foil which is there to help preserve and help keep the gum in a clean, healthy state. Also note i will try and get some pictures...when i find out how to do so...and add them to the review!

There are also some other information that may be useful to some people. The extra chewing gum contains a source of PHENYLALANINE, which in excess may produce a laxative effect. Also Wrigleys Extra Chewing Gum IS suitable for Vegetarians.

Might i also add a list of all the Chewing Gums Wrigley's make, which although this review is about Extra, the information maybe still be useful:
Wrigley's Juicy Fruit
Airwaves
Spearmint
Extra
Orbit
Hubba Bubba
Big Red
Winterfresh
Freedent
Altoids
Eclipse

Overall, my personal view is that extra chewing gum is very satisfactory indeed and even though there may be a few disadvantages or dislikes no-one can really argue that Wrigleys Extra is not one of the most if not the most common/popular chewing gum on sale.

If you want to get in contact with Wrigleys you can send a letter too:

The also have a website which is: www.wrigley.com and .co.uk
