Limited Edition Extra Dessert Delights Rainbow Sherbet

Wrigley says their new Limited Edition Extra Dessert Delights Rainbow Sherbet gum is made up of the flavors orange, lemon, and lime. So I was hoping a stick of it would look like a vertical strip cut off from a Rastafarian flag, but it was just pink.

Of course, I should’ve easily guessed the gum’s color because the packaging has so much pink that I’m disappointed the profits from this gum don’t go to breast cancer research.

To be honest, I had forgotten what rainbow sherbet tastes like so I headed to the nearest supermarket to pick some up. Unfortunately, all the store had was a 4-quart pail of rainbow sherbet, so if you invite me to your Super Bowl party, guess what I’m bringing.

After chewing on a piece of Limited Edition Extra Dessert Delights Rainbow Sherbet gum and eating a little rainbow sherbet straight from the 4-quart pail using the smallest spoon I could find, I thought the gum didn’t really taste like rainbow sherbet. Instead it had a generic mild citrus flavor, which eventually became more lime-ish the more chewed on it. I also noticed the sherbet has a sourness that the gum lacks.

With all of that said, I have to say the Limited Edition Extra Dessert Delights Rainbow Sherbet gum has a good flavor, even though it’s not rainbow sherbet. It’s a pleasant soft chew and the flavor lasts for a decent amount of time.

And thank goodness it has all of these traits because it seems it’s only available in packs of three. So if this gum sucked, guess what I also would’ve brought to your Super Bowl party.

    I have no interest in this gum, but now, I really want a big bucket of sherbet… and I live in a country which doesn’t sell it. :-p

    Don’t eat to much of that stuff the sorbitol in it can give you a massive case of the bubble guts

  3. I am a gum HOE-BAG… so I JUMPED, LEAPED, HUMPED… my way over to this gum when I was at Target because I HAD TO TRY IT!!! After all I LOVE the Mint chocolate chip variety… Eh, well… this gum did not put out quite the way I wanted it to. I guess I just don’t like fruity like gum! Needless to say, 2.5 packs still sit in my cabinet.

    I got this gum with huge hopes, thinking it would taste like sherbert.

    It tasted like bubblegum. You know, the the kind that blows huge bubbles. In fact, I’ve tried blowing a huge bubble with it and it did.

    Way to go, Wrigley inc. Make bubblegum into sticks and label it as “Rainbow Sherbert”.

    I still like to blow big bubbles with it, though.
