Brooklyn Spearmint Gum
Of course I'm in it for the packaging. Aside from that, though, this is great gum. Apparently a popular product in Italy, the flavor of spearmint gum starts really subtly. However, the flavor does the opposite of your typical stick of Wrigley's where it begins with a punch and quickly succumbs to that horrifying aftertaste. It's barely there at first but the flavor grows and lasts for a surprisingly long time. Also, if you're like me and chew a piece of gum to death, this boasts the additional benefit of staying super soft. I have to try to find this again! Oh sweet, a great history of the product published in The Seattle Times!
