I absolutely adore Pur gum and mints. Anyone who knows me knows that I always have a large bag of Pur gum in my purse. (True story: my little nephew, who was three at the time, saw bags of Pur gum hanging in a store. He excitedly pointed to the bags of gum, and screeched at his Mom: “Auntie Tina!” So…I might even have a slight addiction to the stuff. I’m not ashamed, I’m not ashamed.) And, anyone who ever needs a piece of gum always knows who to come to! I not only stock up on the stuff, but I’m pretty happy to share it with anyone else.
I became such a fan of this stuff a few years ago, when I realized that by chewing gum with aspartame all the time, I was actually consuming an awful lot of aspartame! I had mostly taken aspartame out of my diet via other things – like pop or foods – but I still was consuming it by chewing gum. So, I love that this gum tastes delicious, doesn’t have sugar OR aspartame, and is in fact good for your teeth! Xylitol is a natural sweetener that inhibits the type of bacteria that causes cavities. So, chewing Xylitol gum can help to strengthen your teeth, and prevent cavities! (But – an important warning here to pet owners. Xylitol is POISONOUS to cats and dogs! If you have a pet in the house, please keep any xylitol products stored up high and well out of their reach. We want to keep our little buddies healthy and safe.)
If you’re looking to break your addiction to aspartame gum, then search no further! Pur gum actually tastes good, and I find that it stays nice and chewy for longer than some other types of xylitol gums. The flavours are awesome, too!
Here are my favourite Pur brand gum and mint varieties:
PUR Peppermint Mints are the ones that have a nice, strong peppermint flavour. If you want to get rid of your coffee breath, these will do it! They’re not overpowering either, they’re just right. $2.79 for a pack of 20
PUR Sugar-Free Cinnamon Gum is my favourite flavour of Pur gum! I’m a sucker for a delicious cinnamon flavour, and so I often have a bag of these stocked in either my purse or cupboard at home. $4.99 for a bag of 55 pieces of gum
PUR Sugar-Free Gum Bubblegum is an awesome way to chomp on some bubblegum without any sugar in it! Reminds us of our childhood…Or, a fun flavoured gum to give to your kids! (I don’t think they’ll actually be able to blow bubbles with it though.)$4.99 for a bag of 55 pieces
PUR Sugar-Free Spearmint Gum Bag is actually the type of gum I have in my purse ALL the time. I find that the nice, milder mint flavour of spearmint is just perfect for everyday chewing. (Ha! I just said everyday chewing.) And, the Spearmint variety also seems to stay nice and chewy for the longest time. So, it’s my top choice for overall Pur gum winner. $4.99 for a bag of 55 pieces of gum
Great flavour, no sugar or aspartame, stays soft and chewy longer. Check, check, and check. Stock up on some of this delightful stuff, and even your teeth will thank you.
