NOT the same flavor as it was 10 years ago

Just an FYI: Juicy Fruit "re-engineered" their flavor in 2003 after getting criticism about the amount of sugar in the gum and it's NOT the same as the Juicy Fruit you chewed as a kid. Now it's got aspartame (artificial sweetener) and the taste is overpowering and bitter.

When I was a kid, I loved the taste of Juicy Fruit so much I wanted to *eat* it, not just chew it. Not anymore. Now it just tastes like every other sugar-free gum on the market- too mushy, too soft, artificial "tang", and too weirdly sweet.

What did you think of this review?

This is sad. I am glad I don't chew gum anymore. I can't stand anything with aspartame in it and it seems like so many other things are packed with corn syrup. Yuck. Very few good choices. I look forward to the day when the marketplace will realize the risk in these artificial sweeteners and go back to simple cane sugar (it isn't good for you either, but it is natural).
