A few years ago I reviewed Toronto-based PUR – a company that makes naturally-sweet gum and mints. The gum and mints are sweetened with 100% xylitol…no refined sugar or aspartame! The products are also vegan, gluten free, soy free, nut and peanut-free. When I reviewed their products in 2014 they only had a few flavours of gum…now in 2017 they have a bunch more flavours AND delicious mints. Read on….!
I was so happy to review their whole line and it’s so nice to enjoy gum and mints that are 100% pure. Did you know that xylitol is recommended by dentists to reduce plaque build-up and wash away bacteria? Pretty neat. I’ve noticed that there are a lot of natural gum companies where the flavour lasts for 10 seconds and the gum gets stuck to my teeth. Not PUR though. The flavour lasts much longer and the consistency is like “normal” gum. I love it!
PUR has the normal line-up of gum flavours, including Coolmint, Spearmint, Wintergreen, Peppermint, Bubblegum and Cinnamon…but they also have Chocolate Mint and Pomegranate Mint. Have you ever had Chocolate Mint gum? I’m a huge fan of peppermint chocolate, but I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it in the form of gum. I love it though. It’s sweet but refreshing. The Pomegranate Mint is also delicious. It has a hint of berry with a cool mint flavour in the background.
I love the mints too. The line-up includes: Spearmint, Peppermint, Polar Mint, Mojito Lime and Tangerine Tango. I love the Mojito Lime. It certainly reminds me of the delicious summer cocktail. All of the mints are super refreshing and I love that they are also naturally sweetened, free of common allergens and made with the highest quality ingredients.
PUR is a super pure company. It’s awesome to see a company that has such strong beliefs to create a product that is safe for all to consume. Not only do they accommodate those with food allergies/sensitivities but PUR is diabetic friendly, as xylitol is one of the lowest sweeteners on the glycemic index.
You can find PUR Gum and Mints in the majority of health food grocery stores, but I’ve also seen them at the counters at HomeSense and Winners (or you can shop online). I definitely recommend them…one of my favourite companies out there!
