Trident taste test

Taste testing and rating three different flavors of Trident gum


Tropical twist is the best gum of the three overall. Trident tropical twist, original favor, and bubblegum can all be bought at Walmart, CVS, Kroger, Target, etc. The price is the same for each at $1.29 without tax.

Not everyone prefers the same flavor of gum, so it is important to have a variety of flavors.

Tropical Twist has a delicious smell and taste. It smells sweeter than it actually tastes. The taste is more sour than sweet. The flavor lasts for about an hour and by the time the flavor is gone, the gum becomes more difficult to chew. The gum is bright orange and lives up to its name, Tropical Twist.

Overall Trident’s Tropical Twist gum earns a 4 out of 5 star rating and #1 of the gums tested.

Trident’s Original flavor gum is mint. 

The gum is blue and smooth. The mint taste comes off strong at first but isn’t aggressive after a few minutes. The taste lasts longer than the other Trident flavors and keeps your breath fresh. The Original flavor has a generic smell like most mint flavor gums do.

The Original flavor deserves a 3 out of 5 stars and is ranked #2 of the gums tested.

Lastly is the Bubblegum flavor. 

The gum’s texture is similar to the other flavors tested. This flavor does not last as long as the other flavors and the flavor is too strong. It has a very strong scent like a candle and it is very sweet as expected.

The overall rating of Trident’s Bubblegum is 2 out of 5 stars and is ranked last of the gums tested.

Although the different flavors of gum come from the same brand, some are better than the others. The flavors don’t last the same amount of time throughout but the texture is the same of each flavor.

Trident’s Tropical Twist gum is number one on their list of gum flavors. The texture of this gum is the same as the other Trident flavors tested, Original mint flavor and Bubblegum.
