Reviews For Ginger Gum
Based on 9 Reviews
I was looking for something ginger-based that I could chew on the go when I get a headache, bouts of nausea or motion sickness so I bought this gum. Turns out I love it so much I'll probably just make it my go-to. It is super sticky thanks to the all-natural ingredients so be careful not to get on lips, fingers, clothing etc. I also like that it has wrappers to help dispose of the gum once I'm done with it. After a long while it does start to disintegrated but that is to be expected with a natural product. Good quality.
I love most all ginger and this was no exception. The gum pieces were small to provide me a short ginger burst/fix.
There is an odd, "off" flavor to the ginger flavor
I love natural foods because I don't like to feel like I am consuming a chemistry experiment. I love nibbling on crystallized ginger and thought this gum would have a similar flavor. Perhaps the package I got was a fluke, but the gum has an odd. almost musty, quality to the flavor.
Not what I was hoping
Was disappointed. Not as much ginger flavor as I hoped. If I pressed it against my check instead of chewing, I could get a little more flavor. Also, this was the show stopper for me, it would get really sticky and stick between my teeth, so I had difficulty chewing it in the first place.
Beautifully designed, sustainable product.
I was hoping for a strong ginger kick, but at least the flavor did last quite a while and the texture was good. Each box contains around 12 serving if you chew two little gum pellets at a time. The packaging is wonderful – the box design is almost a work of art.
The gum itself is natural chicle, a gum resin that is tapped from Manilkara trees, the same type that the ancient Aztecs used to make their chewing gum! Compare that to conventional gum: typically a mixture of synthetic rubber (made from petroleum), resins, waxes (paraffin), fats (hydrogenated vegetable oil) and often talc. Conventional gums also contain dodgy ingredients like aspartame, BHT, and artificial colors.
In terms of social and environmental impact I think it deserves 5/5 green stars. The box is purely cardboard, so it’s easily recycled; most of the ingredients are organically-grown; and the gum (Chicle) is tapped from trees, which is a lot more eco-friendly than making gum from petrochemicals; and it’s biodegradable! Simply Gum is a woman-owned, certified B-Corporation, and you can see their scores on the B-corp website.
I love this gum. It is soft and stays soft for a long time. The flavor also lasts a really long time. It is quite sticky though that must be why they have disposal papers in the pack!
The gun is great helps with stomach issues,only complaint is very small pieces of gum
Gum was tasty but sticky. Wrappers for disposal a great idea!
Great for Car Sickness, and tastes amazing!
I bought this because I get very ill during long car rides, and it worked wonderfully! Unfortunately, it tastes so good, I want it all of the time! Light ginger with a hint of sweetness makes for a very delightful chew that lasts. Will definitely be buying this again!
