Significantly thinner than the packaging suggests, the chew chews like any gum should, with a noticeable initial softness. Sweet with citrus highlights describe no fruit specifically, not particularly deep or complex. Things are playfully tart but unfortunately a bit under-seasoned; the flavor is chronically weak and loses its flavor progressively and rapidly. No issue, I spit out my first and proceed with my second. I notice now some lemonade thoughts with the first couple jaw grinds, only to quickly become an tedious piece of rubber in only a few gnaws. A third is experienced, bringing no more depth to the flavor party, but nor does it introduce any stimulant or artificial sweetener bitterness. Overall, even as an energy gum, I am unmotivated to continue on with the pack.
There is caffeine but unknown to us is the amount, insignificant if I were to make an educated guess. The lack of a kick backs my hypothesis, lasting notably less than an hour. Overall, Mentos Up2U Energy Strike Gum's innocuousness is its greatest downfall.
