Trident Layers Sweet Cherry Island Lime

This is the second gum I bought on my special gum shopping trip. It’s a nother one of the Trident Layers flavor combinations I’ve seen as late. I’ve tried the Orchard Peach + Ripe Mango and was a big fan of it. When I saw this cherry+lime flavor I was excited to give it a go.

Opening up the package, I was surprised to find that somehow that cherry/lime flavor reminded me of cola. It has hints of diet coke and Dr. Pepper in it. I can’t quite put my finger on why, but my best guess is the cherry aroma that is just a tad spicy. Still, the gum smells really nice and enticing.

The stick of gum is very stunning. It’s a bright crimson with a lime green flavor stripe down the middle. It’s a little Christmas-y yes, but it’s very beautiful. I do wonder if it’ll turn my tongue colors.

The flavor starts off on a strangly. The lime is the first thing I taste, and it’s very tart, bitter and reminds me of floor cleaner. Not my favorite thing, mind you. The cherry then kicks in and delivers a ripe, juicy “red” flavor that takes away that strange cleaner flavor. So now it’s become this bright “red” flavor with a tartness to it from the lime. Once the flavors blend some the gum is actually pretty tasty. It had me worried from a slightly rough start.

I think I would still go for the Orchard Peach+Ripe Mango flavor over this one. Cherry flavors sometimes are too metallic for me, and even though I enjoyed it, I just enjoyed the other one more. That’s not to say this is a bad flavor at all. I shared this gum with my co workers and they all really loved it. Again, everyone has their own opinion!
