Chewsy - Is sugar free just as good?

I always have such a variety of things in my everyday handbag, so no matter what I get up to, I have everything I need. Everything from Make-up, perfume, wipes, my diary and my glasses get carried about with me wherever I go. One of the things I am lost without is my chewing gum. I love to keep a packet in my back as I think it is the perfect way to freshen up after a meal, or just as a pick me up throughout the day.
When Chewsy got in touch and asked me to try their sugar free gum, I was really looking forward to it. I love the idea of being able to grab a freshen up throughout the day without having to worry about how much sugar is in a piece. I decided to give it a go to see how it compared to your regular chewing gum....



Firstly, the flavours. Their are 3 in the range, Lemon, Spearmint and Peppermint. I decided to try the Lemon packet, which isn't something I wouldn't normally go for, but I really wanted to see what it was like. It comes in a small box, which can easily be put into your handbag and used on the go, perfect for a busy lifestyle.



I gave this a try for a few days to see how I got on with it. As much as I love the idea, and the packaging (I love the bright bold colours), I wasn't a big fan of the taste. I always like the flavour of chewing gum to be quite strong, however I found the flavour to be quite weak in comparison to your regular supermarket suppliers.

Another thing that did disappoint me was how long the chewing gum kept its flavour. It was gone only within a few seconds then I had to get rid of it, which wasn't a great selling point. I do think however this is due to the natural ingredients as they don't use any flavorings or added chemicals to make the taste stronger, which I can see appealing to a lot of people. Of course I have only tried the Lemon flavour, so I can't speak for the rest of the range.... I am hoping that the mint flavours are a little tastier.




Personally I prefer the more popular brands over this particular flavour. I don't think the taste is as nice, or lasts as long. I often feel after finishing a bit of gum Ii am left with an off taste in my mouth, which is left after I have chewed the gum for too long.

I do however think for someone wanting to track what they eat this would be a good alternative to the high in sugar brands that are available in stores. It certainly is much healthier and is very natural, however for me, it doesn't suit my taste.
