[Candy Review] Extra Dessert Delights Strawberry Shortcake Gum

Cost: $1.99

I like Bicycles. One time I rode my bicycle all the way to Cincinnati. Marcy Playground was there and they played a concert. Following the concert, I went to Five Guys, which is the Marcy Playground (ie, the best) of burger joints.

What does this have to do with Extra Dessert Delights Strawberry Shortcake Gum? Nothing. I’m just following the asinine guidelines we use for posting on this site.

In all seriousness though, I’m generally not much of a gum chewer, as I always feel the impulse to swallow it quickly, thus lessening the desired effect (which I guess is a sore jaw). I was, however, enticed to try this new Extra product, as Strawberry Shortcake just so happens to be one of my favorite desserts.

And I was pleased to discover the gum does possess a fairly authentic shortcake taste. The best thing about good gum is the ability to mix the flavor in with your saliva and rest the ball on your tongue, and this gum opens itself up nicely to that delicious practice.

There’s just one problem though, which is a common one with most gums, and that is a flavor which leaves about as quickly as it came. I never officially timed myself, but I would estimate the vast majority of taste was gone in about a minute. Once the flavor’s gone you may as well be chewing on air, and unfortunately the experience with this particular gum was much too brief.

Does It Hit The Spot?

Yes and no. Look, it’s gum. The only real components needed for a review are “does it taste good?” and “does the flavor last?” While the taste portion is there, the product only succeeds at a rate of 50%.

If you truly love Strawberry Shortcake and think you would enjoy tasting random bursts of it during the day, then I wouldn’t discourage you from trying this out. However, it’s hard for me to imagine the short-fused flavor won’t leave most people a bit disappointed.

    Hello. I just purchased this gum from Walgreens, which is on sale for 50 cents each right now. I thought this gum would have a sweet strawberry flavor, but i was so wrong on that. This is the nastiest gum flavor I’ve ever tasted! It doesn’t have any “strawberry shortcake” taste whatsoever. It tastes like rubber, literally. Don’t purchase for your sake, or you would be wasting your money. Have a good day.
