Wrigley’s Extra Dessert Delights Key Lime Pie Gum
I don’t know about other mortals, but in my experience heavy, heavy rainfalls tend to dissipate rapidly. One moment it’s sunshine; then, rather suddenly, the world goes dark and the sky weeps in torrential downpours. Following that, in a just as sudden instant, the sky clears and there’ll be an untainted canvas of clear blue sky. The rain would seem to have never even occurred but for the typically large puddles that so rapidly accumulated in those brief moments.
Similarly, Wrigley’s Key Lime gum will blast and pelt you with an explosion of flavor for a short burst of time, but will quickly fade and leave you with only a memory. That, and some near-tasteless gum which, I must admit, has quite a few irritating properties. To begin-that explosion of flavor will stagger you. That key lime pie flavor is exactly what one’d look for when searching for a…well, key lime pie flavored gum. That element of lime is definitely present, and it’s backed by a creamy flavor very reminiscent of the real pie, which one may not expect from gum. Where this gum fails, however, is in duration. The initial flavor takes a handful of moments to wear itself out, unlike many other gums.
The texture is another flaw in this gum. At first, there’s a creamy composition to be discovered and greatly enjoyed, but with every bite it gets harder…and harder…and harder, until you’re almost afraid it’ll become sentient and begin to forcibly rip out your teeth from their place.
As a whole, this gum does fulfill its place as a dessert-style candy, especially as it exceeds all expectations in the key lime pie flavor department. It’s also well worth noting that this product is sugar-free. If you decide to give it a shot, keep the aforementioned benefits and drawbacks in mind!
