Stride Gum – The Ridiculously Long Lasting Gum

Stride Gum

UPDATE: If you are looking for the answer to whether or not the wrappers are edible, here is the answer.

At this week’s All Candy Expo, Cadbury-Adams, the makers of Trident, Certs, and Dentyne (among other things), announced their newest innovation, Stride – The Ridiculously Long Lasting Gum.

According to a very un-scientific study conducted by The Chicago Sun-Times the flavor of the gum lasts anywhere between 34 minutes to 127 minutes. That might not be ridiculously long, but I’d say that is mighty impressive. The gum, which took 3 years of research and development to perfect, uses proprietary technology to encapsulate sweeteners causing them to be released over time insead of all at once.

Quick review: The gum is tasty and does last a long time, but it’s not a good flavor. After chewing for 15-20 minutes or so, it tastes like it’s just about to lose the last of its flavor and it tastes that way for a long time. So it’s not an enjoyable long-lasting gum. If you remove the promise of “long-lastingness”, it’s as good as any other gum out there.

    The one thing that is frustrating to me about gum is not having any clue what flavor I am purchasing from the name. I usually end up getting wintergreen, which I hate, when trying to purchase peppermint gum.

    Kenneth says:

    Umm it says the flavor right on the top left corner of the package.. there is no peppermint, only winterblue and spearmint. And by the way, longest lasting gum ever. period.

    RESPONSE: I think anon was talking about gum in general, not Stride. Maybe.

    [...] Update: Blijkbaar heeft hij zijn 2006-trip doorheen 39 landen en 7 continenten, niet eens zelf moeten financieren: “Stride long-lasting gum” betaalde hem – gewoon om nog eens zo’n filmpje te maken .. Ehm, ik zou graag de wereld rondreizen en in elk land een Freddy-sticker plakken, is er een sponsor in de zaal? [...]

    Trish says:

    I have always favored Trident gum, as it is very long lasting and it’s a firm gum (I hate mushy soft gum – Like the new soft Dentyne ice gum). Stride gum just as good, maybe even better than Trident gum. I have only tried the spearmint flavor- that’s also my favorit Trident mint flavor.

    mike says:

    I dont know what some of you are talking about the gum being so great.
    I bought 2 packs, and the flavor doesn’t even last through 1 quarter of a football game. the flavor is gone after about 10-15mins. winterfresh last just the same as stride. so i dont know what the hype is all about.

    Today i just tried to eat the gum with the wrapper still on it. In like 15 seconds the wrapper dissolves. It also makes the gum a darker blue.

    Chris says:

    Recently stride gum has released a flavor titled “sweet peppermint” to address the peppermint question above. Also, what name would you call the wintermint flavor? It really is just like a wrigleys winterfresh flavor (but better)

    Andrea says:

    Has anyone found that they are allergic to Stride gum? I have narrowed down that I am, but I am not sure what in it I could be allergic to. I am not allergic to any other gums (thus far), so I was curious if anyone had

    Anonimity_Goat says:

    i’m chewing Stride right now, and if i didn’t already know that it still had the wrapper on, i never would have noticed. no change in flavor, just color.

  24. 24
    stacey says:

    ok i agree that the wrapper dont dissolve, it just gets chewed up, because the gum texture changes when you chew the wrapper too… my opinion is, EW

    trish says:

    the wrapper on stride gum is the same color as the gum because youre suppose to chew it w/ the gum, its suppose to make the gum last longer but it doesnt desolve, i dunno why people waste their time talking about gum anyway even though im doing it right now,lol

  27. 27
    trish says:

    I just got this off the internet on, but i dunno if its true: Rumors have circulated suggesting that the wrapper of Stride gum is meant to be eaten along with the gum. While the paper wrapper is thin and will mix into the gum if chewed, the wrapper is not intended for consumption.

    I am an official employee of Cadbury Adams at the corporate headquaters in Plano Texas. We did not intend for any of the wrappers for any of our products to be consumed. Please discard the wrapper and enjoy the gum!

    I think that Stride caused some kind of weird rash on my tongue and the roof of my mouth. Has anyone else had this happen?

    Cat says:

    go ahead and eat the wrapper if that’s what floats your boat (when i was little i used to eat the paper lollipop sticks).. but ew.

    I like stride gum, but after a while the weirdness of the flavor kind of makes my stomach upset.. like it just messes with me. So i can only chew it for like 10 minutes.

    Great long lasting gum! Need to make cinnamon flavor. I will eat the wrapper then.

  48. 48
    Courtney says:

    Yes, you can chew the wrapper. It’s no big secret, its not like Stride secretly made a edible wrapper, but you CAN chew the wrapper up with the gum. It does dissolve because the texture changes one the wrapper is gone. I’m doing it right now=] I love Stride.

  49. 49
    Courtney says:

    It will not HURT you to eat the wrapper, and it does not effect the flavor of the gum, so dont worry about it if you preffer the gum with the wrapper, just go for it!

    livi says:

    Yeha, you can eat the wrapper! It dissolves, and I heard that the wrapper is also made of rice paper, which is edible, it doesnt matter. Eat it to get your money’s worth lol

  52. 52
    kelsy says:

    Thats right, The wrappers are actually made of rice paper and dissolve. they have no flavor by them selves, but when you eat it with the wrapper, it keeps the flavor inside until of course, it dissolves and then it’s like a huge rush of flavor. So I guess it really does save the flavor.

  53. 53
    Jessi says:

    So, I was in math class this morning, you know chewing Stride…and someone mentioned that I could chew the gum with the wrapper still intact…I am going to try it after lunch with my last piece, so hopefully everything goes well…!

    Gum is NOT long lasting, if you think it is, obviously you’re believing everything you hear and it’s taken over your brain.

    Gum reminds me of bubbelicious, overpoweringly sweet at first, rubbery and thick in texture, overpriced and flavour runs out fast.
