Mark Twain once supposedly said “When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it’s always twenty years behind the times.” Normally, this is a pretty accurate statement, but when it comes to chocolate bubble gum, I guess we’re only about 7 months behind everyone else.
Chronic Chocoholic Dieters such as myself can now give a little cheer as this new (new to me, anyway) bubble gum only has 25 teensy weensy calories… yet still allows you to get that taste of real Hershey’s chocolate for a nice long time. My views on the stuff: it ain’t Godiva, it’s more like a Tootsie Roll as far as chocolate taste goes. But what do you want for 25 calories that gives you chocolate eatin’ sensations for a good half an hour or so? Also, as in traditional bubble gum pieces (ala Hubba Bubba or Bubble Yum) , the pieces are ginormous so you have to divide it down the middle to keep from globbing your mouth shut.
My rating: B+, and I only wish I’d have thought of this first.
