Wrigley’s Doublemint Kona Crème coffee gum

Do you begin to get a sense that people are taking this coffee thing too far? To wit: Wrigley’s Doublemint Kona Crème coffee-flavored gum. Kona as you may already know is the sposed high-end coffee from Hawaii. Crème is the froufrou spelling of cream. the gum tastes at first like sweetened iced coffee. but as the combo of coffee + mint unfolds, it gets a little odd. in the + column: It has sugar (preferable to sugar-free gum which has phenylwhatsits, said to excite your brain cells to DEATH). And the coffee color is nice. But minus: tis neither refreshing, which is what you want from gum nor does it provide a dose of caffeine

For me gum is a way to rid myself of coffee breath. Sound slike this would make it worse. And no caff=KoD

The Wall Street Journal did a profile of the CEO of Wrigley a few weeks ago, and said he was taking more chances with new products. I hope this isn't one of them, or he may represent the end of the family management dynasty for Wrigley.

This gum is pretty good in the beginning like others have said...but, it really leaves a nasty flavor in your mouth. I was really looking forward to this gum but, now that I have had a few pieces I am ready for it to be over. Take my advise please do not buy this product if you want a good tasting breath freshener.

I must disagree with ya'll.
I think this Coffee gum is just great. Tastes just like a piece of hard candy - Coffee Nips. I love this gum send me more, I like it.
Eventhough it's sticker than most other gums; will even stick to a vertical surface.

I think its a great idea for the coffee consumers such as myself. And the description of its tastes does the gum no justice. The taste is amazingly good.

I LOVE THIS GUM AND, SO DOES MY HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL. I TURNED HER ON TO IT AND, WE BOTH LOVE THE COFFEE FLAVOE. IN OUR OPINION, THERE IS NOT MUCH MINT FLAVOE AT ALL SO, THE ONLY THING I BELIEVE THAT WRIGLEY SHOULD CHANGE WOULD BE, TO JUST MAKE IT KONA CREME GUM AND, TAKE OUT THE WORD DOUBLEMINT. THEY CAN KEEP IT AS A COFFE FLAVORED GUM ONLY.
