@mbersiam Well I have a craving for candy-specifically Necco wafers which doesn’t go well with my diabetes-does it really either satisfy or blunt your sweets craving. I also like a cookie for dessert after dinner. Would it help limit that also?
Got this last time and my son, daughter and I all tried a piece of the the gum at the same time. (My husband was chicken).
The gum has a decent spearmint flavor that lasts like 10-15 seconds. Then it tastes really weird (I think because it must block the sugar taste right away?) You are supposed to chew it for 1-2 minutes, but I only made it to 1. My kids made it to 2. It didn’t taste ‘bad’…just odd.
Then we tried a variety of sweet things, and I was actually astounded that it worked! We tried skittles first, and there was just the essence of the fruity taste on the outer edges of our tongues, but not in the center. It was so freaking weird…like chewing unflavored wax or something. Then we tried a bite of cake and it was awful. Again…not because it made it taste ‘bad’ per say, but because it made it taste like nothing at all. It’s very hard to conceptualize eating something that your brain knows is tasty, but yet not taste it at all. The cake felt like crumbly sawdust. We did not expect that, and we were cracking up. Then I tried a pretzel stick and I could taste the salt, but it was still unappetizing. Just not nearly as unappetizing as the sweet stuff.
I wish I could explain it better, but in a nutshell…it works (I haven’t tried the spray or lozenges yet, but I assume they will work the same ). I don’t think you’d enjoy your after dinner cookie at all.
Someone mentioned in the last thread that the gum would be a good gag, and honestly…they kind of would be…if your friends have a good sense of humor. (I’m not saying I’d recommend it though…)
And someone else mentioned that maybe this worked like the nail biting stuff. It does not. It truly does not make anything taste bad…it just makes it literally taste like nothing…which is bad.
For me, it lasted about an hour or so before it began to lose its effectiveness. By 2 hours, everything tasted back to normal. But wow, what a trippy experience. I did not expect it to do what it did, and I would have to say it works pretty well! Obviously, it may vary from person to person, so take my review with the understanding that you could hate it.
I’m very tempted to buy it again just for the gum…
You’d mentioned those wafers before and I had them confused with these other cookie like delicious things. I think these are the best, even in the sugar free version. Diabetic approved!! They sell them in most grocery stores and Amazon has them too, in every flavor imaginable, ALL are delishious!! Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, coconut and orange cream 1
@Echenanci Wow…that is a bummer about your side effects! Was it only the lozenges? (Although I suppose the gum would do the same thing and wouldn’t be worth risking). Making you nauseous is certainly not the food deterrent you were looking for. Did you do more than 1 in a day, or did it happen after the first one? I only did 1 piece after dinner.
And I’ll have to try ketchup next time! It is insane, isn’t it? It’s hard to describe what it’s like to only really be able to identify texture versus taste. It’s like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.
I honestly can’t believe that some big company hasn’t figured out how to refine it to make it last a little longer. I guess it could be dangerous if it made people not want to eat anything for longer than a couple of hours (especially diabetics), but on the other hand it would be great for those (like me) that want to snack endlessly from 7 to midnight.
@mbersiam@Rissa13@SHOVAR accurate description… I’ve noticed some things it gives almost a very synthetic buttery (unpleasant butter taste too). It immediately turns me off of sweets because although you can smell it, the taste is just odd, completely unsatisfactory and I always immediately put whatever sweet I have down.
@SHOVAR the best way I can describe it is that it makes sweet foods taste like absolutely nothing at all. It’s a really strange sensation to just sense the texture of food on your tongue, but not taste.
It doesn’t impart an artificially bad taste, but when you remove the sweet flavor, it definitely makes eating sweets less than appetizing. It’s like your brain knows it should taste a certain way, but it doesn’t, which makes it yucky, lol!
I bought this last time out of curiosity. The spray was awkward and not very effective; only good for dulling sweetness, not removing it, and didn’t last long. I haven’t tried the lozenges. The gum is decent and the effect lasts for a while. It wasn’t mind blowing. Sweet stuff doesn’t taste bad, just weird, and slight sweetness is still perceived in a lot of stuff. Chewing the gum might help you decide not to grab a soda or whatever on the way to work, so I guess it does its job. (Soda was still pleasant, just not as good)
@zehnn question: Do you think different people would likely react differently to this stuff (like the PTC test)? Would some be tasters, and some not so much? When my kids and I tried it, my daughter didn’t seem like it affected her as much (although in all fairness, she’s 16 and contrary ). It got me wondering if there could be a genetic predisposition as to how well it works. Biology/genetics used to be my passion way back (I was going to be a Bio teacher, but Chemistry killed that dream ). I’ve since forgotten everything, but I still love this stuff.
@lisagd It is intriguing! This stuff fascinates me, lol!
@zehnn my daughter is taking AP Bio this coming year…maybe I should get an order of this for her teacher. I’m sure the kids would get a kick out of it!
And now that I see you feel it’s safe enough to give to your students, I’ll tell my college aged son that it’s probably safe for him to prank his friends with the gum.
@cinoclav lol! Now I totally have to try spraying it on something to see if it would work that way. I’m not sure it would coat the tongue enough to wok well, but the gum would definitely work as a gag. It tastes good enough at first for someone to chew it before realizing that it is the worst piece of gum ever and spitting it out. By then, the damage is done.
My 22 year old son (who tried it with me) wanted to play a joke on a few of his good friends at college. I think it would be hysterical to see their reaction, but I would be too worried that it could cause some weird side effect. I think it’s fairly safe, but I certainly wouldn’t want to make anyone sick. Then again…I’m a chicken when it comes to practical jokes.
@brettprofitt Agreed. Not worth it to me. I am wondering how much weight the mint is pulling. I have never been one able to eat after brushing my teeth for an hour or two. The product itself tastes terrible though. Like bad tasting toothpaste, reminds me of Sensodyne.
The lozenges made chocolate taste bad but the gum seemed to have no effect. Maybe chewing it did not concentrate it on your tongue?
Interestingly, Hot Tamales Fierce tasted better, like it enhanced the cinnamon flavor.
