Simply Gum Natural Chewing Gum Review
Simply Gum Natural Chewing Gum is a brand that offers unique flavors of gum that use natural ingredients and it is free of xylitol, plastic, aspartame, BHT, and it is non GMO. It is handcrafted in the USA and it has a softer, more subtle flavor than regular gum. This variety pack features 10 different flavors which means there is something for everyone.
Gum, like everything else today, is loaded with artificial chemicals that were made in a food laboratory. These chemicals are cheap to produce and can be so strong they can alter your taste buds for hours on end affecting everything you eat or drink. While most other brands of gum are using plastic, Simply Gum uses a natural tree-sap (chicle) base instead and they only use the highest quality, natural ingredients.
Simply Gum Ingredients
- Natural Chicle
- Organic Raw Cane Sugar
- Organic Vegetable Glycerin
- Organic Rice Flour

Free? Not Quite. But it is Free of the Bad Stuff.
Do you like chewing plastic? Neither do we and Simply Gum agrees.
Natural Gum Pieces
Simply Gun does not look like your average gum. Colors are not bursting out of the package like the rainbow as you open it up. The gum has a brown, natural textured appearance and does not use artificial colors or coatings. The color and texture of their gum comes from the chicle (tree sap) base they use along with the organic cane sugar.
Post Chew Wraps
While most gum companies wrap their gum in some type of foil or paper, Simply Gum does it a little different. Their gum comes in the package unwrapped in its natural state. The back of the package conveniently holds post chew wrappers for you to use when you’re done chewing your gum. You can wrap your gum up in a wrapper and dispose of it properly rather than getting it all over your hands or throwing it on the street. We all know the eye sore gum leaves on sidewalks and streets… especially the kind that is full of plastic and never biodegrades.
Variety Pack Flavors
We tried all the flavors in the Simply Gum Variety Pack and gave our impressions of each flavor below. The choices are unique and very distinct. It was very interesting trying the different flavor combinations. The variety pack opens up your flavor palette to flavors you might not have otherwise tried. You will be pleasantly surprised by how good each flavor is. Simply Gum did a great job with their formulations.
The cinnamon flavor is like chewing a bit of the holiday spices. The cinnamon is not shy in this gum. Cinnamon is usually a favorite among most people and this has some definite spice to it. Long lasting flavor and easy to chew. It has a real natural cinnamon flavor and doesn’t taste like someone poured a chemical mixture of flavor into the gum. A definite for the autumn and holiday season. Doesn’t hurt to help put you in the mood!
Grapefruit, Prickly Pear, Cayenne, Sea Salt
This particular blend of flavors is quite different but subtle. The main flavor you taste in this is the grapefruit. It’s definitely the top and then the cayenne is there but doesn’t overpower the grapefruit. The name of this gum is Cleanse and that’s exactly what it tastes like…a clean fresh taste. Not a hot flavored gum as the ingredients may imply. Each flavor compliments each other well and the blend is refreshing.
This gum has the natural spearmint flavor. Have you ever pinched off a leaf from a spearmint plant and popped in your mouth to taste the natural flavor? Maybe even added to your cold glass of ice water to freshen and add flavor? This is what I think of when I pick this flavor to chew. Extremely refreshing and along with the peppermint flavor, this is a good choice when hitting the town for date night. Spearmint is not as hot or “minty” as the peppermint gum so this is good for a nice, clean refreshing chew that doesn’t make you think of the holidays or think you are eating a candy cane. Spearmint Simply Gum tastes more like an actual spearmint plant in its natural state.
Wow, is this a candy cane? It’s definitely Christmas year-round with this gum. It’s like taking a candy cane right off the Christmas tree and eating it. The flavor is amazingly real and natural. Fresh taste and would be fantastic to take along on a date. This flavor is very punchy but doesn’t overpower. After the first couple of chews it slows down a little to a more evenly refreshing taste. Doesn’t dull with a lasting flavor of mint.
Simply Gum Ginger flavor is definitely for those who have an acquired taste for Ginger. It’s exactly like you are chewing on a piece of natural ginger. If you want to compare to something you can say it has the flavor of a spiced Chai Tea. We all know that Chai Tea is derived from ginger so it definitely has that spicy and unique flavor. It’s a refreshing flavor for those that already enjoy the ginger spice punch. Simply Gum uses real ginger in their gum and they have heard feedback from customers claiming it helped with nausea and sea sickness.
Like licorice? Well then you’re going to love the Fennel flavored chewing gum offered by Simply Gum. This unique flavor reminds us of the licorice we used to buy at the movie theater while watching our favorite summer blockbuster. While it might not be a flavor for everyone, it is unique and different and is a great addition to their flavor lineup. Don’t be turned off by the name. The Simply Gum Variety Pack allows you to try flavors you have never been exposed to before.
Anyone up for some pancakes? The maple flavor is incredible and lasts for a good long time. There are so many gums that lose their flavor within the first 10 chews. This has a taste of thick syrup being poured over a stack of hot cakes. This gum would be great when grilling your Smoked Pecan Pie on the BBQ. Maple is just about how it is…spiced syrup!
Want some coffee flavor without the cost of caffeine? This is a great boost to give yourself a taste of coffee without brewing or stopping at the coffee shop to grab a little pick me up. The taste is bold coffee but doesn’t hit the taste buds with so much that it ruins your palette. Sometimes just a slight hint of coffee is refreshing and much better than the coffee itself. If you are a coffee lover and especially love the smell you will definitely enjoy this flavor.
Lime, Chili, Sea Salt
Ever chewed a Margarita? So realistic and it is exactly what it would be like. Maybe without the jigger of tequila but the refreshing lime hits you like the fresh squeezed tart limes in the margarita. Followed by a hint of the chili for a very small spicy punch. You can even taste the salt like it was the topping on the rim of your margarita glass. Nothing else enters my mind when I chew this gum. Great for popping in right before an outdoor party or pool party.
Lemongrass, Turmeric, Cayenne
This flavor is probably one of the most popular in our household. The blend of flavors are complementary to each other. The lemongrass is the most prominent with its citrus fruity flavor. Although, the ingredients are cayenne, don’t assume it’s hot. It has a slight hint of the cayenne and it comes out periodically a bit more pronounced. It’s almost like chewing the cinnamon but not as sweet of a hot spice. A very relaxing gum and the best part is that most natural products never have the fullness you get when you get chemically mixed products. However, this gum is a great gum if you are a “smacker”. It has lots of body and is great for those who smack. This just might be one of the most unique flavors from the variety pack. If you think about the cayenne while chewing you can taste a bit of tanginess on your lips. Great flavor and highly recommended!
If you’re looking for a natural alternative to chewing gum, do yourself a favor and try the Simply Gum Variety Pack. It’s the best deal for your money. The variety pack includes all the flavors so you and your family can try them out to see what you like best. The gum comes in a pellet form and you can actually pinch off a portion for a quick refreshing flavor or chew it all for long lasting enjoyment. These flavors are a good deterrent to eating or grabbing an unnecessary snack. Once you determine your favorite flavors, you can reorder only that flavor in the future. Enjoy!
