Dessert Gum: Little Pieces of Heaven

I want to share what I consider the 8th Wonder of the World: gum that tastes like dessert. Yes, folks, I've discovered (with the help of some friends) gum that tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream, strawberry shortcake, and key lime pie. It truly is a little slice of heaven for those of us who eschew carbs.

Little pieces of heaven

Wrigley's Extra Dessert Delights makes these three scrumptious flavors of gum, each containing 2 grams of sugar alcohol (which I consider burned off by the time I'm finished chewing the piece). And to answer your unspoken question of taste ... Yes, each flavor actually DOES taste like its intended flavor!

I'm also a fan of the Fruit Sensations, Berry Smoothie being my favorite.

I'm normally a fan of gum and enjoy different flavors, so imagine my excitement when I discovered there's now gum that tastes like some of my favorite desserts! I found these at a couple local grocery stores. They were just released in October, so they're brand spankin' new!

Go ahead! Treat yourself!
