What bubble gum has flavor that lasts?

I'm back on the patch with some good results so far. I bought a big 'ol box of Orbit gum but it tastes like rubber in like two minutes. Any better gums out there?

Ask yourself what the Red Sox chew?

Is it Double Bubble or Bazooka?

The purple ones I chewed as a kid, Thrills. I can still taste them! Sorry, just joking.

LOL - Andy.

I used to really like Tutti Fruitti, don't know if you can still buy it though. Or was it Fruit Stripe? How about Chicklets? Do they still make those?

I've always liked Bazooka. I think the flavor lasts longer than Double Bubble and I think it stays softer longer.

I used to love Fruit Stripe, but the flavor last about 5-10 seconds. We would chew a piece for a few seconds then spit it out and put the next piece in our mouths. We would go through a pack of gum in under a minute.

Was Fruite Stripe the one with the colorful Zebra on the package? I used to love that stuff. It smelled great, but the flavor was short lived!

I can't remember what brand it is but supposedly there is a gum out there that lasts forever. I think it's called Stride. I have just started seeing the commercials. I do not know how it tastes as I haven't been able to chew gum in over 4 years.
