I was super excited when I spotted and picked up the Red Berry Sour Patch Kid gum, but I was put onto a hunt when I found out there was a lime flavor available. So that set me on a mission which I continuously came up empty handed for … until I went to Target.That’s when I stumbled upon a 3-pack of the Stride Sour Patch Kids Lime Sugar Free Gum in the candy aisle.
Like the Red Berry, the gum itself smells EXACTLY like Sour Patch Kids. The scent alone leaves one with their mouth watering. Popping the gum in my mouth I immediately get that sour flavoring, but as you chew it gets sweeter and tastes just like lime … and just like a sour patch kid. I truthfully think the lime tastes better than the red berry, which is surprising because with the actual candy itself the red is my favorite.
These are sold in single packages and in 3-packs.The 3-pack of course being cost effective. The gum is <5 calories a serving.
Checking out at a local grocery store, I had to do a triple take. I saw the classic sour patch kid on a package … but before me was gum, that’s when I noticed it was Stride Sour Patch Kids Red Berry Gum. GUM!? I grabbed a pack and put it on the conveyer belt … I was sold on the packaging’s claim alone.
It wasn’t until I opened the package that I was immediately sold on the product itself. Unwrapping the plastic wrapping I was awarded instantly with that classic sweet berry red sour patch kid scent. It smells JUST LIKE Sour Patch Kids, which was mind blowing. Popping it in my mouth … I have to say, it tastes JUST LIKE Sour Patch Kids! It’s sour yet sweet.It did make my face pucker momentarily as is the case when anything sour hits my taste buds.The sourness dissipates quickly and hat’s when the red berry flavor is at the forefront. While simply just chewing the gum the berry flavor is noticeable, but when going to blow a bubble your taste buds are awarded with that tangy sour flavor. The overall flavor of the gum lasts about 10 minutes and after that it tastes like a very mild, mild berry flavor. Nonetheless totally worth it for the guilt free Sour Patch Kid experience.
As wit all sugar free gums, each piece of gum is less than 5 calories and is 0 points plus values.
