Stride Mega Mystery gum

“Mega mystery” implies some serious mystery is about to happen. Considering a 10.0 on the Richter Scale is epic, I’d say “mega” would logically fall somewhere between a 7.0, known as “major”, and a 9.0, known as “great”, on the Mystery Richter Scale. Since Stride is known for it’s ridiculously long lasting gum, one can also assume that Mega Mystery gum has some seriously sustained mystery in store for us. All of these hypotheses hold true with this gum.

I don’t know what the heck is in it! The ingredients are of no help, either. I guess that would really ruin the surprise to have the mystery ingredient spelled out in plain sight, though, huh? “Natural and Artificial flavors” is the only clue we get. And, that’s no clue at all because, well, doesn’t that encompass every flavor that exists? The tie-died packaging also has every example of the color spectrum on it, so another dead-end.

Now, I’m left with only an educated guess. So, avert your innocent eyes if you don’t want to know what my two cents are or if you’re *spoiler alert* wary. It’s definitely fruity. Something like tangerine with a subtle mint undertone? Wait, I hear something at the door now. Uh oh, I don’t think I was suppose to tell you that… Yes, I’ve said too much already.

I can only hope that the good folks at Cadbury eventually tell us what flavor it is. The suspense is…

    I first saw this gum in Fountain Hills, AZ back around Christmas Time and was unable to find this flavour anywhere else in the US or Canada until at least two-three months later.
    My impression is that it tastes like the classic yellow Pez Candy.

    Wal-mart charges twice the price of regular Stride gum for this one. I refuse to pay that much for a flavor I have no clue about.

    I saw this gum at the 711, so I decided to give it a try. Its definately something fruity, not sure what. I wasn’t a real big fan of it, it wasn’t bad, but will buy another package to try and nail down the flavor.

    I bought this last week at a corner shop. I didn’t see it at any major stores though. It reminds me of Fruit Stripe Gum. You know, with the zebra and all.

    I’ve tried it. All I can say is that the flavor combo must SOUND awful, and that is why they chose “mystery” over… XX and YY.
