Pros:Soft, improved flavor and consistency.
The Bottom Line: Yes, I love the flavor and the consistency of this gum
I had used to eat eat Bazooka Bubble Gums for many years when I was a kid. I stopped eating it because the way it would always be so hard to chew. It was almost break your teeth hard. I had always loved the flavor but could never stand the consistency of this gum. Here recently I sent my son in the store to grab a pack of chewing gum, and this is what he came back out with. I hadn't tasted this product in years! Wow! How things have changed!

What your getting
Your getting a bubble gum actually. It is sweet and tastes like an original bubble gum flavor. It is pink. You can purchase this gum in different size packages. We purchased it in the 12 piece package and it ran 69 cents. The packaging feels to be a blue wax paper, and then in the inside it is wrapped in a wax paper type paper. Each piece is individually wrapped. Every piece of gum is wrapped in a comic/joke geared toward children.

Wow again! Was this gum ever so soft. They must have changed either their recipe or their wrapper, because this isn't the same gum I remember as a kid. Your still getting a decent size piece, not to big to invade your mouth. Also, not so small that you can't blow a decent bubble.
The flavor is an original bubble gum type of flavor, sweet, and pleasant to chew. This gum not only starts out soft, but stays soft for a good 20 minutes. It also begins to lose its flavor at about 15 minutes and then totally gone by about 20 minutes. Actually this newer version of gum seems to last longer in flavor. It claims it is the original on the packaging. Maybe this packaging just seals in the flavor? I don't know, but this gum has improved much over the years.
I probably would have never purchased this gum again, except for my son surprised me with it. Bazooka also offers another website listing: BazookaJoe.com.
My son loves the little jokes included on every wrapper, and enjoyed reading them to me while we were in the car.
I thought 12 pieces of gum for 69 cents was a decent value, and seem to be priced better than some other brands. 15 calories per piece, I can't go wrong.
I love the improvements they have made to this gum, and will purchase it again now that I know it is so soft.
