Peppermint Blast Chewing Gum with Xylitol
The old peelu xylitol gum disintegrated when chewed for 45 minutes. This newer one doesn't do that. Stays nice and chewy - not rubbery - for long periods of time. The mint flavor doesn't wear off. Very zingy mint flavor. Love it!

I buy this gum because chewing regular gum is like bathing your teeth in sugar. I can chew this gum and feel good about it. I also am hopeful that it will help some family members stop smoking. While it is pricey, it does last a long time, as I buy the large 300 count bottle. I like to keep it on hand. It helps, too, that my husband likes it.

I've always wanted a gum that does the job of cleaning teeth and has healthy ingredients instead of the junk chemicals that are in the standard gum-this one fills the bill and tastes fine,too!

The name speaks for itself. Peppermint blast. The gum is refreshing, makes my mouth and breath feel clean. Easy to chew. When I researched the additives there are positives to the peelu fibers and xylitol for your teeth.

This gum is not only good for you it's good for your pocketbook also. With three hundred pieces it lasts forever.

Great natural gum
I love this gum!!! The flavor doesn't last as long as Trident or Orbit per se, but at least it's all natural. It tastes great and I like the texture. Everyone I've given a piece to has loved it too!

Good for oral health
I love this convenient way of freshening my breath, and removing small particles from my teeth without artificial sugars., The flavors don't last quite as long as the gums with artificial sugars, but they have gotten better, especially the peppermint.

rubbery and short-lived flavor
An initial peppermint oil flavor that quickly fades. The texture is overly chewy and lacks elasticity. Convenient that there are so many small pieces. No perceived teeth cleaning from the peelu. Suitable for chewing 5 minutes or less.

This is now my go to gum because it tastes great, and contains Xylitol which is great for my dental health. Tablets are a bit on the small side, so I occasionally need to use two at a time.

This is one of the only sugar free gums that does not make me ill. The flavor is okay too.

Great Peppermint Flavor
I love this gum! However, the first time I tried it, the initial "blast" of flavor was so intense that when that sensation went away after about a minute or so, I thought it had lost it's flavor completely. But actually, the initial powerful blast of flavor mellows into a milder but long lasting peppermint flavor. I have shared it with others who agree, it is great! The initial flavor blast really freshens my breath and the Peelu does its job of cleaning my teeth between brushings. I had my best check up yet at the dentist which was an added bonus. I have not had any problems with it breaking apart or crumbling that others have mentioned. Perhaps they had a bad batch or something, but I have not experienced that issue.

horrible, don't buy it
this is one of the worst chewing gums I have ever bought. First it breaks up into crumbly little pieces when you first chew it. And the taste lasts about 10 seconds. It really ahs no value at all. Swanson should really discontinue selling it.

Improved Formula? NOT!!
I absolutely loved the PREVIOUS version of this. The peppermint flavor lasted an extremely long time and the texture was that of other gum.
Unfortunately, when I went to my order history and clicked on the Peelu gum of a previous order, it came up as page not found. So, I did a search and come up with this "new and improved" Peelu gum from the same name, but 30% more in price. Well, I ordered anyways because, as I said, I had really liked what I had received in the past, and thought perhaps they made it better.
I'm sorry, I really find this stuff disgusting. When you first start to chew it, it it kind of falls apart. Then, after a few more chews, it kind of gets itself back together, but by that time the flavor has given out so you are left with a wad of tasteless rubber in your mouth. Seriously, the flavor disappears within less than a minute. (I timed it.)
So, I really wish the company who manufactures this could tell us how this is "improved" and why the price went up 30% for this "improvement".

This gum is greeeeeeeeat
This gum is far superior to other Peelu gums in taste and texture. It must be too good because I was only able to get it one time and now it is always unavailable. Too bad for us gum lovers.
