PUR Gum Review

I have to say, I am one of those who probably consumes way too much aspartame. I don’t mean to, but it is in everything that I give into, with the idea that if I have that, then I will not be consuming calories. Aspartame is a very controversial additive and I know that it would be best to cut back on my intake. Any product that I regularly consume that has a healthy alternative, instead of aspartame, I am all for.

Take for instance PUR Gum. They have a catchy slogan that says “My gum kicks aspartame.” Pur Gum uses xylitol as their sweetener. Xylitol comes from some fruits and vegetables, did you know that? I didn’t! Pur Gum is also verified NON-GMO.

I was able to try the following flavors: Spearmint, Pomegranate Mint and Peppermint. I liked them all. I especially liked the Pomegranate Mint, but was sad that the taste did not last too long. The flavor lasted much longer with the Spearmint and Peppermint flavors.

All of my kids loved it! No complaints whatsoever! If the cost is the same in comparison, to the aspartame products, then it would seem obvious to switch over to Pur Gum and “Kick the aspartame” habit.
