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 Iâ€™ll be emailing the winners for their mailing addresses. Donâ€™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.

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.
Rain please 😀
Mmmm… Cobalt please 🙂
Why does it always Rain on me?
I tried, and liked, Cobalt. It tasted just like the car.
I’d like some pieces of Flare, please.
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.
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
I want Flare because my mother made me wear flared pants when I was a little, bitty girl.
Flare please – I love cinnamon!
Gum gum gum. Get in my mouth.
I NEED flare.
I have such a lack of flare.
Rain, please, as in ‘Let it rain, clear it out…’
(I hope that didn’t hurt my chances.)
Rain (spearmint) 🙂 : – )
If we asked really nicely, would you sign us up for the gay porn?
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.
I’d love some Flare, but I’d be happy with whatever I got. Beggars/choosers – you know.
GUM! I’m already on a lot of gay porn, so it’d probably just be redundant.
I’d like the Flare
lindo marvo y tierno ace,
cobalt por favor 🙂
Cobalt would be lovely 🙂 Impressive gum structure by the way!
Let it RAIN in the club!
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!
I need flare!!
I’d like rain.
Not the actual kind, mind you. It’s too wet here already.
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
since i’m stuck here in seattle i guess rain would be the choice for me!
rain! But anything is good 🙂
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 😉
I have such “flare”
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.
Hi Marvo! I’d like the Cinnamon. Maybe it will wake me up!
I’d like to try Rain please, Marvo!
Yum, Flare, please – as far as I’m concerned, everything should be cinammon flavored, because I am just that obsessed with cinammon.
Send me some Flare, bee-yotch
Here’s hoping for some cobalt!
“I do wanna express myself and I don’t need 37 pieces of FLARE to do it.”
Thanks for sharing. I’d like Flare or Cobalt.
Cobalt sounds good, but I’m not sure why they didn’t name the others “Iron” and “Nickel”. Some kind of periodic table copyright?
I want one, any one will do. Pick me, Pick me, Pick me!!!!!!
Rain, thank you very much.
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.
Cobalt, if I am selected as a lucky winner.
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!
Flare please. or whichever one you think suits me best.
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.
i love cinnamon
I’d love to taste some of your Flare, Marvo…
I’m not choosy
I’ll take any
please don’t pinch me
in the fanny
(OK, so I’m no poet, alright?)
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!
Which flavor? How ever will I chews?
Oh wait, what is that above??? You have ABC gum???
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.
Rain. Rain would be good. This site is awesome!
I love gum, pick me!
And btw, I’d like some Flare!
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’
me want gums plees
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!)
Cobalt baby. Sounds like a chemistry experiment in your mouth.
RAIN! i want gummmmm
You should pick me, and send some gum all the way to Missouri!
this gum seems interesting. it is doubtful that it’ll come to canada 🙁
please sign me up for all that great gay porn too
RAIN for me, because I don’t understand what RAIN has to do with the flavor or the color of the packaging.
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.
mmmmmmmm Flare for me please.
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 QuÃ©bec lately.
i’m gonna quit smoking (again).
when i don’t smoke, i chew gum until my mouth hurts.
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.
Flare for me please! As for porn, you can never have enough. Or maybe that’s just me.
I’ve always liked the word “cobalt.”
I love you.
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…
Hey there, I’m not picky. if you choose me, I’ll take whatever you got.
I’d be up for some Flare gum. Thanks for the the generosity!
Cool! I could use some gum to keep at my desk. 🙂
Cobalt if possible. Thanks!
nice! I’d like to try the Rain flavor…I love spearmint!
Bring me the Rain, Marvo. Bring me the Rain.
Pepperminty COBALT, thanks a lot!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Spearmint. Yay random drawings.
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.
psh, I want some rain! If I win a pack of gum I’m going to play a game of footbag freestyle with it.
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. 🙂
Hmm I’ll give this a try, just for the hell of it.
Lemmie take a shot at the Rain flavor.
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.
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).
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
Cobalt please! 🙂 Thanks a bunch!
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!
Gotta go for Cobalt. Would not complain if I got a Chevy Cobalt for free but some gum would be nice.
Flare please. Love the site.
by the way you are hilarious!
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.
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.
Make it rain please.
I want Rain!!
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?
Sure, I liek gum. Why not?
ooh – cobalt, please.
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.
Rain or Flare for me! Mmmmm…gum.
I have a suspicion that if it were raining here, it would not be 98 degrees.
Will you send me some rain before I melt?
In the words of Beavis and Butthead: Yes! Yes! Fire! Fire!
Yumm.. Flare sounds good.
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.
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.
Can I chew gum with 4 teeth in my mouth ?
Rain… Your blog rocks!!!
Flare for me too, but what a dumb name — all the other fiery names were taken?
Toss me some of that Cobalt, son.
I’m not picky! I’ll take any flavor. Your site rocks!
Southern California needs some Rain.
Your blog is teh secks.
If I’m a winner I’ll enjoy whatever flavor is sent.
only ninjas chew Cobalt peppermint.
toss me some yo.
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??? 😀
I’ll take cobalt please (those are dumb gum names)
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.
Rain please! I will chew it during my quest to purchase those amazing Fr00t L00ps straws. Science.
I likes gum….its good…..
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*
So, I guess saying any flavor doesn’t count? Cobalt!
Cobalt or whatever you have. Thanks for the drawing, Marvo!
PICK ME PICK ME!!
i like ur site. its my favorite kind reviews of misc. foods. and i want the cobalt flavor! =)
treat me like pacman jones and make it RAIN
Oh RAIN sounds like my kind of gum! Thanks for sharing your loot with us! 😉
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
I like to read your reviews! Down to business…I choose Cobalt.
Send up the emergency FLAREs 🙂
Flare is my first choice but any flavor will do.
Cobalt sounds good.
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!!!
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!!
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.
I could use some Cobalt, if you want to toss it my way.
Rain is pimpin’ … I’d love to get some of that
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!
Rain, please. Like the kind that falls incessantly in my heart. Or something.
Rain Rain Rain. ;o)
I’m only happy when it rains.
I’m going down in a blaze of glory.
Cobalt – I got nuthin’.
Flare me please!
I could be choosey but if your given I would like to be taken some of that gum from you.
I need more Flare
Not sure if someone from Europe can enter as well but just in case they can: I would love some rain!
I’d like some Flare in my life as well.
I’d like to try the Flare. Thanks for the fun blog.
mmmmmmmmmmmm……..spearmint……I love it!
Anything will do, baby.
