Meiji Sweets Gum, Blueberry Cheesecake Flavor
Mmm, I feel like Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when I chew this Meiji Sweets Gum in Blueberry Cheesecake Flavor! It does lose its flavor quickly but is so flavorful and delicious that I keep popping more and more in my mouth! Soon, like Violet, I'll blow up into a big human blueberry! It really is a vivid juicy blueberry flavor, though fleeting. The cheesecake element in the center is actually not gum but a chewy candy. The flavor didn't really come through but it is an interesting process to both chew gum and break down a chewy candy. Maybe I'm a purist, but I found that gum/candy combination a little distracting. Overall, though, these Meiji Sweet Gums are really fun!
