Trident Layers Gum Review

I recently had the opportunity to review the new Trident Layers Gum. Since I am dieting, I like to chew gum to stave off the munchies. It really helps especially when I want something sweet. I pop a piece into my mouth and that seems to satisfy me. Because Trident Layers gum has no sugar and less than 5 calories per stick, it is the perfect bite size treat for me.

So I was glad to try this new gum. Trident Layers takes two flavors and layers them into one tasty piece of gum. You can see the layers when you pop open the one of the pieces. I got 2 packs of the gum to sample. I received the new Green Apple/Pineapple flavor and the Wild Strawberry/Tangy Citrus.

What did I think? I really liked the Wild Strawberry and Tangy Citrus flavor. It was sweet yet tangy. It was a little sour but I like that. I know others might not but it is just fine with me. The gum lasted a long time too without losing the flavor. It was quite good.

The bad news is that I really didn't care for the Green Apple/Pineapple flavor. When I first bit into it, it was tangy and the flavor was promising but I felt it was too tangy and sour. Unlike the other flavor that had the Strawberry to balance the flavor, this one didn't. It just wasn't a good idea to layer these two flavors together. But who knows, you might like it. But this flavor lasted a while too and I like gum that keeps it flavor.

So I liked one flavor but not the other. But overall, Trident does do good gum.

Disclosure: Trident contacted me to participate in a review of their new Trident Layers Gum in these two new flavors. As part of my review, I received the product I discussed in this review. No other compensation was given and the opinions in this post are solely mine and are based on my experience with the product. My opinions have not been influenced by the product given.


  1. I've been getting the same ol' same 'ol gum for years! I'd like to try both of these flavors, actually the Green Apple/Pineapple sounds delish, so I'm game.

  2. This looks like a great gum. I like the flavor combos. I also like Trident.
