I'm asking to see if anyone has tried the Extra Dessert flavor gums? If so what do you think?
I've tried Strawberry Short Cake and Key Lime flavors so far. Didn't see the Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream one.
Read a review that the Mint Chocolate one really tastes like ice cream
The Strawberry Short Cake one is so so. While the Key Lime one tastes really good. Its kinda got a creamy flavor that lasts a long time. I've had lime gum before that I didn't like due to the added mint flavor, but this really does taste good. Just wondering if the mint and chip is any good.

no idea. but i'd been wondering about the strawberry shortcake... the only problem i have that's stopping me from trying it is that a lot of the "dessert" type sweet gums have that fake almost sour sweetner taste when you first put them in your mouth, that i can rarely get past.

hence forcing me to stick to mint flavored options.

so, are they any good?

I too hate that fake sugary tart taste in a lot of the sugarfree fruit gums. But the dessert ones don't have it. As a matter of fact I'm still chewing a piece of Key Lime Pie that I put in my mouth like 5 mins before I posted lol. Still a little sweetness left and still soft. The Strawberry one tastes kinda like a Strawberry Shortcake but also has a flavor I can't really describe. It wasn't bad just different. Definitely like the Key Lime though. As I said its got a creamy taste to it just like a pie with whipped cream.
The thought of lime gum made me kinda squeamish at 1st due to others that have had mint flavor added. But this one is just creamy and limey lol. Now if they would make banana split gum that tastes like a banana split I'd be closer to heaven lol

It is definitely creamy and i can taste both the mint and the chocolate. My husband didn't know I was chewing it when we were driving and all of a sudden he said "do you smell mint chocolate, it is making me want ice cream"...i was reluctant to share, but I was nice! Smile

Lol to funny.
Well now I just have to find the flavor near me. My luck it will be like trying to find the strawberry cream kisses. Never found them here in California or in Rhode Island. But I will search for it Smile

I haven't found the strawberry kisses either. Although I did find the mint, candy cane, and cherry cordial ones. (When I have a real craving for a starbucks mint mocha latte, i have discovered one mint kiss in the coffee cup means i can have the same thing for around 45 calories cause i use almond milk, that starbucks makes for 400 calories. 70 if i add my cool whip to the top. muhahah.)
