CLOSED ~ Cool Special Edition Dentyne Gum Review and Giveaway!

Dentyne recently launched a line of Dentyne special edition bottles, a first in the U.S. gum category. These cool bottles come in limited edition designs and in three flavors: Peppermint, Spearmint and Arctic Chill. The cool artwork is the work of Anthony Yankovic. Yankovic has previously produced limited edition designs clothing, skateboards and snowboards. And his designs are really cool.

When I saw these little artsy cups, I immediately liked them. I love the artwork. I really like Yankovic's funky style of art and actually have a few things in my house that remind me of his artwork. The bottles are short and stout. They are also grooved which makes them easy to grab. The design is perfect to drop in the cup holder of your car.

I took a road trip and made sure to have one of these there at all times. Because the lid is wide, I could easily pop it open while driving and grab a few pieces of the delish Dentyne gum. They are also the perfect size to keep on my desk at home or to pop into my purse. I went out to lunch with friends and when I pulled out my Dentyne cup and offered them a few pieces of gum, they loved it. And I always keep gum in my purse because you never know when you need a piece to freshen up your mouth. Nothing is worse than being around people and not knowing if your beath is not fresh. So I always keep it handy!

The best part is while the packaging is new, the gum isn't. It is still the same tasty Dentyne gum you are used to. My favorite flavor? The Spearmint! The Spearmint is minty and fresh. I like the Peppermint as well. The Artic Chill was a little too spicy but that didn't stop me from chewing it!! Each bottle holds 60 pieces of yummy bits of deliciousness. Fantastic because you can share with all your friends!

And as you guys know, I am dieting so these are perfect for the diet. I keep a bottle on my kitchen counter so when I get the urge for something sweet, I make a grab for some gum and that wards off my munchies!!

And now my dear readers, I have a giveaway for you!! The great people at Dentyne have offered TWO of my readers the opportunity to try all three flavors of Dentyne gum in these awesomely cool bottles. Think how cool you will be when you pull these out of your purse or have them in your car! WOO! Read the entry rules and enter!!
