Hershey's Ice Breakers Gum Dragonfruit Freeze
I love Ice Breakers gum- the pleasing packaging, the sugary coating on the overly-large cubes of gum, the freaky flavors they dream up- and got really excited at the new Dragonfruit Freeze variety. I don't believe I've ever eaten a dragonfruit and am now a little less excited to do so. Without a point of comparison on realistic taste, I'll just say that the overall flavor of the gum is Tutti-Frutti. The unique dragonfruit flavor comes in, unfortunately, in the aftertaste, leaving a mellow musky flavor on your tongue that definitely does not mesh with the idea of gum leaving one's tastebuds refreshed. The aromatic musky notes leave your mouth feeling less clean than when you began. And trust, adding more pieces to the mix doesn't help.
