Wrigley's Orbit Mist Mango Surf Sugarfree Gum

The flavor of this new Orbit Mist Mango Surf starts off so promisingly with a strong, tart burst of Mango flavor. Unfortunately, the mint soon follows and these two flavors just taste off together. It's like mixing lemon juice and milk, the acidic taste of the mango plays off the mellow mint in an unnerving way. And as someone guilty of chewing gum long after the flavor disappears, the aftertaste is not good- reminiscent of the lingering taste after the delicious flavor disappears in a stick of Juicyfruit. I've gotta give Orbit kudos for really exceptional packaging, and as I've written about before, I'm a sucker for great wrapping. You open the calm blue packaging to reveal a torrent of concentric circles falling from the package interior to the wrapping on the individual sticks of gum.

Score: 3
