PRIZE DRAWING: You Need Gum? I Got Gum!

When a PR firm sent me the Wrigley’s 5 Gum to review, I found out how much gum was too much gum. Thirty packs of it is definitely more gum than I can handle.

If I had an oral fixation, halitosis or wanted to work on my gum sculpting skillz, the three boxes of gum they sent me would’ve lasted me about three weeks. Sure, I could pass the gum to the homeless panhandlers that hangout at the 7-Eleven down the street, but that gum won’t help them buy booze.

Instead, I offer it to you TIB readers via a prize drawing. I’ve got 18 packs of gum left, six in each of the Wrigley’s 5 flavors: Rain (spearmint), Cobalt (peppermint), and Flare (cinnamon). So 18 lucky random readers will each receive a pack of Wrigley’s 5 Gum.

To enter the Wrigley’s 5 Gum prize drawing, just leave a comment for THIS post with the Wrigley’s 5 flavor you want and whatever else you would like to say.

Please fill out the email field, because I’ll be emailing the winners for their mailing addresses. Don’t worry about the shipping, it will be taken care of.

The Impulsive Buy will start accepting entries for the drawing on Tuesday, June 26, 2007 and stop accepting entries on Wednesday, July 4, 2007 (11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time). Only one entry allowed per person. The drawing is open to ALL Impulsive Buy readers.

Sometime after July 4th I’ll randomly select the 18 winners.

Good luck!

  1. Wow…am I first, that’s crazy…Anyways I’d like the Flare cinnamon flavor gum. Also your blog is really cool and a fun read.

  2. Ooh, ooh, ooh!!! Me, pick me!!
    I’m a long-time fan who doesn’t usually post anything (just lurking in the shadows), but for some gum I’m willing to come out in the light.
    I won’t even be fussy about what kind, since they all sound good to me.

  3. what’s that, Sting? you have something to say?

    I dream of rain
    I dream of gardens in the desert sand
    I wake in vain
    I dream of love as time runs through my hand

  4. I want Flare because my mother made me wear flared pants when I was a little, bitty girl.

  5. Rain, please, as in ‘Let it rain, clear it out…’

    (I hope that didn’t hurt my chances.)

  6. I’d like the Rain, myself. Cinnamon and Peppermint flavors of gum are usually just too spicy for me. Spearmint Rain is the happy medium. Thank you.

  7. I LOVE the Rain!
    I’m teaching summer school to a bunch of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in an stuffy building with no heat. I NEED the rain!

  8. Your blog kills me! Thanks for sharing it.

    I can’t find this gum anywhere here where I live. I’d love to try the Spearmint or Cinnamon flavour

  9. I DO wanna express myself and i don’t need 37 pieces of flare to do it!

    I mean, I do need 37 pieces of Flare 😉

  10. Please select me. I am not trendy, but I would like to be. I figure this new hipster doofus gum will get me halfway there.

  11. Yum, Flare, please – as far as I’m concerned, everything should be cinammon flavored, because I am just that obsessed with cinammon.

  12. Cobalt sounds good, but I’m not sure why they didn’t name the others “Iron” and “Nickel”. Some kind of periodic table copyright?

  13. I think I deserve a pack of the peppermint gum because my father used to crochet his own banana hammocks and wear them in public. If that isn’t reason enough, I really don’t know what is.

  14. Flame please.

    And the whatever I’d like to say part…

    I will never forget the day I found TIB. I googled the name of a popular weight loss drink brand that I was doing marketing for at the time, to see if I could find any truth behind the rumors that it contains laxatives. And I found myself here!

  15. Is this where I sign up for gay porn? Can you mail me more information about speed dating in my area? Also, I never did receive the info about joining Scientology.


  16. I’m not choosy
    I’ll take any
    please don’t pinch me
    in the fanny

    (OK, so I’m no poet, alright?)

  17. Wow, all of these gum chewers out there. Personally, I do not chew gum; however my dog is a big fan of ABC gum found on sidewalks. Delicious!

  18. Which flavor? How ever will I chews?

    Oh wait, what is that above??? You have ABC gum???

    Cobalt please.

    Or if I am third runner up, a MINTY FLAVORED CONDOM would suffice.

    If it’s good enough for Marvo, it’s good enough for me.

  19. RAINdrops keep fallin’ on my head
    And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
    Nothin’ seems to fit
    Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallin’

  20. Someone should care for Cobalt, so I do! We have icy breath in the Nordic countries anyway.
    – And if you send me a packet, I will def “out” your blog as one of my favourite blogs in a National Danish Newspaper come late July…(not kidding!)

  21. RAIN for me, because I don’t understand what RAIN has to do with the flavor or the color of the packaging.

  22. Cobalt, Marvo, Cobalt!

    And is it male gay porn or female gay porn? Because if it’s male gay porn, no thanks. If it’s female gay porn, no thanks. Hmm…guess that question was pointless for me, but perhaps it might help someone further down the road.

  23. Hi Marvo!

    Did you choose the 4th of July on purpose? I’m sure you did! And I agree : let us all greet the Transformers with minty-fresh breath!

    P.S. I’d like a pack of Rain, if you don’t mind. There hasn’t been much of that in Québec lately.

  24. rain or cobalt.

    so basically, are you trying to tell us that you were too busy to torture your tastebuds and write us a boardline explicit blog?

    then again i COULD go buy a pack myself, however i’m following in your sloth like footsteps and begging you for what resources you have.

  25. Flare for me please! As for porn, you can never have enough. Or maybe that’s just me.

  26. I like to wipe my ass with really fiery things and still have it smell as fresh as an Alaskan whale hunter, like oh..well I don’t know stuff: like PEPPERMINT(Cobalt) flavored gum. So Cobalt would be just awesome if you could send some out to me…

    thanks bro

  27. Flare or rain. I just got a sandwich at subway and it tasted like cigarettes and now I have some pain in my left oblique so if I’m not dead soon, I’d like the ash taste out of my mouth and I think some gum could help.

  28. Rain. I bought a pack of Fire last week and some girl said it looked like Axe gum with its foil pack and cool way of opening.

  29. Went golfing for a company and a pack of Cobalt gum was in the goodie bag. Our family loved it, have been looking all over to buy some more. The grand kids love it. They can chew it even with their braces on.

  30. Beggers can not be choosy. I will accept with a grin any flavor of gum you care to send my way.

    also, you should review the monster m-80 energy drink.

  31. I’ll take some Flare. I like it because it reminds me of the final fantasy spell, although it’s usually considered non-elemental (not firey). Oh the nerdiness.

  32. aww, am I too late? I’d like a Cobalt if you’ve got any left. Thank you. 🙂

    p.s. I love your blog. I always look forward to reading the new entries and I pass the time at work by reading all your older stuff. Keep up the good work, my man. 🙂

  33. Hmm I’ll give this a try, just for the hell of it.

    Lemmie take a shot at the Rain flavor.

  34. GUM you say!? Seriously, I have a terrible gum addiction. One sometimes two packs a day when I’m on a bender. I’ll take anything you’re willing to give away.

  35. Finally! A contest in the States that doesn’t have a disclaimer barring Canadian entries 🙂 Technically I can’t chew gum because of the braces and all, but I’m so competitive, I’m entering anyway (PS – I promise to give my gum away to some deserving soul. Or perhaps offer it to my next date).

  36. If the spearmint is called “Rain”, and it usually associated with the color green….wouldn’t it make more sense to call it ACID Rain? Maybe it’s just me. Aside from that, I call Flare

  37. cobalt! no, wait, Rain! no, Cobalt! Damn these creative names that make no sense at all in context! Is the rain flavored gum of the tropical storm persuasion? Or flavored more like freak-wedding-day-rain-storm rain? You know what? I choose rain!

  38. Gotta go for Cobalt. Would not complain if I got a Chevy Cobalt for free but some gum would be nice.

  39. Being the long time lurker that I am, I figure it’s a good time to beg for free goodies.

    I’d like the peppermint flavor, I can’t remember what it’s called, and I’m far too lazy to scroll all the way up to look.

  40. help i need gum, to get the taste of all the news about paris hilton, dick cheney, george bush,scotter libbly, well u see where i’m going with this. any flavor is ok, i got this taste in my mouth like a roll of dimes that was used in a south american bar club or worse! i will stop with this just as soon as the gum shows up.

  41. I always wanted to go to Hawaii but couldn’t afford it.
    Maybe if I chew your gum I’ll get closer to my goal.
    Before you send it to me, could you show it around the island a little bit?

  42. I sure could go for the cinnamon gum. I love reading your reviews, often I make my friends read them also, and although they give me a hard time, after they read the review, they realize that I was right all along.

  43. Damn, I was going to make an Office Space joke, but it seems that a bunch of people already have.

    I’ll just take flare, please.

  44. i live in the middle of nowhere, and the only freakin albertsons thats near me only carries damn juicy fruit and eclipse.
    but getting some of this snazzy gum would be cool.

    Cobalt yo.

  45. Flare for me too, but what a dumb name — all the other fiery names were taken?

  46. Rain. Rain.

    I don’t think we have those flavours here yet. You sure if i am picked, you’ll send it all the way to HK??? 😀

  47. I haven’t tried any of them so if you would like to close your eyes, grab one at random and stuff it in the mailer that would be fine by me.

  48. Hm… which might taste best: Rain, Cobalt or Flare?

    Cobalt is a hard, lustrous, silver-grey metal. While small amounts are essential to life, it sounds less than tasty.

    Rain seems pleasant enough, especially since I just hopped to the FAQ and noticed you were from Hawaii. Very little smog and acid rain there, I’d expect. But still, who wants a gum that tastes like water?

    I’ll have to go with Flare. Flare is intriguing, as I’m not quite certain what, precisely, they mean by Flare– does it taste like a burny thing you put in the road when your car has broken down? Or does it taste like the singular form of a pair of bellbottoms? I’m personally hoping it tastes like the breakdance move, myself.

    Whatever it tastes like, I’m willing to try it. *nods*


    i like ur site. its my favorite kind reviews of misc. foods. and i want the cobalt flavor! =)

  50. #136???
    I barely tried this gum, cuz the package looked tight, n I actually liked it more than any gum I have tried, hope I get picked, cuz im going to eat it all n fast, hehe

  51. I would love to try Rain please. Kudos to you for having such an informative and interesting site!!! I cannot tell you how great it is to read about these new products. You have like the “Coolest” job in the world!!!

  52. I would love some rain!! I have the biggest oral fixation ever. I chew 6 packs of ORBIT a day, this would be a GOD SEND if you picked me for some free gum! I probably spend way over 200 or maybe even 300 dollars annually on gum, maybe even monthly! HA, I am pathetic, that is why I think I would be an amazing person to be chosen! Thanks!!

  53. omg! You dont even know, I lovee trying new gum. I chew gum way too much. but this one is more expensive then my current favorites which are stride and bubblegum orbit. there even better mixed together. and Im too lame to spend my money on a new kind just yet. you should totally send me one, and Id love you forever! I say flare.

  54. My chew hurts when I chew…gum…yes, when I chew gum! But I love it’s sweet and yet spicy “kick.” So bring it on!

  55. I’m only happy when it rains.

    I’m going down in a blaze of glory.

    Cobalt – I got nuthin’.

  56. I could be choosey but if your given I would like to be taken some of that gum from you.

  57. Not sure if someone from Europe can enter as well but just in case they can: I would love some rain!
