Trident Green Apple Golden Pineapple Layers Gum

I’m bringing you something a little bit different today – an unboxing of the latest gum offering from Trident:

The new gum is called Trident Layers, and you might have seen the commercials for it on TV, where everyone wishes that they would get paid in gum instead of money.

Appropriately, the gum packaging unfolds like a wallet, revealing the silver-wrapped gum dollars within:

I shivered in anticipation as I removed the first gum bill from the cardboard sheath:

As I unwrapped it, music started playing softly and the room began to glow. This is no ordinary gum.

Each piece of this gum has three layers (hence the clever name); the two thick layers are like regular gum, but the skinny inner layer is a flavor explosion. (No gum chewers were harmed in the flavor explosion.)

Taste: As soon as you bite into it, you can taste intense citrus and green apple flavors, much moreso than from any other citrus gum I’ve tried. Sadly, the intense flavor disappears after a few minutes, but the gum maintains a lighter flavor and chewability for about two hours. 4 out of 5

    I’m a big gum chewier and I’m always looking for new ones to try. I was curious about these. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll probably try it some time but I’m not on my way out the door to pick up a pack.

    Gorgeous photos by the way!

    It’s a bit disturbing how very much the gum packaging looks like cigarette packaging. I wonder what corporate giant owns Trident.

    Excuse me, big man, but there’s no citrus in this gum (or at least there isn’t supposed to be). Citric acid is used in everything, nowadays, though… I tried this stuff… pineapple and green apple are just too confusing a combination for me.

    Being paid in gum is te same as being paid in money. Money can = gum if you want it to. Duh..?

    Excellent photo series! You really had me on the edge of my seat, wondering what the gum would look like once it was completely revealed. And I was not disappointed! Green is my favorite color, and this product starts with green and then wraps it in PURE SUNSHINE! I’m going to recommend to those CoinStar people that their coin counting machines should offer this gum as a redemption option alongside the ITunes gift cards and leather belts they currently dispense in exchange for loose coins.

    Just tried this gum……..great packaging, great taste, flavor lasts. My grandson who
    is a little one always wants my gum—-he will love this one. Still using aspartame
    I noticed. That is only ‘no no’ that bothers me.
