Train Gum contains only five ingredients: chicle, sugar, natural oils, stevia and rice flour. Individually wrapped pieces come in a biodegradable drawstring muslin bag, which I love. It has the old time look and feel you'd find at an old school candy shoppe.
I tried the peppermint, which had great flavor and texture and didn't taste sugary at all (the amount of sugar used is minimal). Though the flavor didn't last as long as some of the artificially sweetened gums out there, I realized that's probably a good thing! I'd choose a natural product over artificial any day!
Train Gum is $2.50 for a bag of eight pieces, and is available online as well as several local specialty shops:
- Fit to Eat, Portland ME
- HWS College Store, Geneva NY
- Formaggio Kitchen, Cambridge MA
