Review: Vitacare Gum

Vitacare - Key Lime Gum

Pros                                                                         Cons               
-vitamin enriched (A, C, D, &  E)                             -packaging includes un recyclable parts
-whitens                                                                   -loses flavor pretty quickly
-good price ($1.99)                                                  -not yet widely available (can be purchased online(
-soothes gums/strengthens teeth w/aloe & calcium
-no parabens, pthalates, or animal testing
-no artificial colors or flavors
-made in the U.S.
-tastes great
-company has environmental commitments
-no petrochemicals or preservatives
-no artificial sweetners

Conclusion: If you're a gum chewer, Vitacare is a great choice. It is all natural, vitamin infused, and does not contain potentially harmful artificial sweetners like aspartame. It loses flavor pretty quickly, but it is great for a quick pick-me-up/breath freshener. And while I'm not usually a fruity gum flavor person, I do really like the key lime mint flavor. Gum packaging in general is usually pretty horrendous, but this company has a packaging commitment to make it as eco-friendly as possible. In fact, most of Vitacare's other products have 100% recyclable and biodegradable packaging, thus, I am happy to support this company.
