Last week, I went to CVS and 7 Eleven looking for the Extra Fruit Sensations Strawberry Banana (after Val had reminded of my love for it) but they didn't have it! I ended up with the Fruit Sensations Sweet Watermelon instead.
The Packaging: The packaging is simple -the flap in the back lifts up to reveal the sticks of gum. I like the bright green and slices of watermelon on the front side. It's not super exciting but it's good enough.
 Nutrition facts
The Product: This is your tradition, long, thin stick of gum -not the small, thick kind. Sweet Watermelon has the typical artificial watermelon taste that's just a little too sweet to be like "real watermelon." This is a decent chew -I really like Extra's Fruit Sensations line of chewing gums. As for lasting ability, I spit this out after over half an hour. There was still a tiny bit of taste left -but not enough to make me want to keep chewing it. This also freshens the breath a little but remember, it's not a minty gum.
Overall: I'd buy this again but I personally prefer the other Extra Fruit Sensations flavors. I wouldn't go out and hoard 100 packs of this stuff but I'd definitely buy it again if I had a hankering for some watermelon flavored gum.
