HOLIDAY GUIDE GUIDE 2013: PÜR Gum Tradition Upgraded

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
Full of PÜR Gum because this mommy cares...

Gum?  Yes, gum.  I had to include gum in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide.  Let me explain.

When I was a kid, each Christmas my mom would fill our stocking with fresh fruit and nuts, one of those candy Lifesaver books, old fashioned ribbon candy and gum.  Yes, gum. This was one of the few times, My sister, brother and I would sit down on the living room floor playing with our new toys and just chomping on sugary snacks to our heart's content.  This was the last SugarFest of the year.  
Hard to believe neither of us has ever gotten a single cavity amid all the sugary candy and gum we ate between Halloween and Christmas alone, but I'm glad to say nary a cavity...not a one.  Now that I'm a mommy I worry about my kids' dental health.  We visit our dentist regularly and change our toothbrushes every few months and we choose healthy snacks.  I know gum doesn't exactly come to mind as a healthy snack but it can be.  In fact, my orthodontist recommends chewing gum and so does my children's dentist.  Yep, chewing gum.  
Chewing gum stimulates saliva production and helps get those digestive juices flowing.  I always chew gum after I've had my braces tightened (adjusted).  Chewing gum really helps alleviate some of the pain.  Sugar free gum is always my first choice and if the gum had a tasty flavor, I was good.  However, it wasn't until I received samples of PÜR Gum that I became aware of a few things.

Did you know?

  • Most gums contain Aspartame, a synthetic sweetener linked to nausea, headaches, dizziness and changes in heart rate?
  • PÜR Gum is Gluten Free, Nut Free and Dairy Free
  • PÜR Gum is chemical free and has no Aspartame
  • PÜR Gum contains Xylitol which helps prevent tooth decay
  • Gum chewing burns calories.  11 calories per hour
PÜR Gum is available in four flavors:
     Wintergreen              Peppermint              Spearmint              Pomegranate Mint

I shared most of the samples with Los Tres Amigos...most.  I kept the PÜR Pomegranate Mint in my purse and only shared it with my youngest after he found it in my purse searching for a pen.  Pretty tasty and packs a strong flavor that lasts leaving your breath smelling fresh.  PÜR Gum packs a flavor punch.  Like here comes the FLAVOR!

I ordered a few packs of PÜR Gum to tuck in my kids' stockings along with a few pieces of fruit and old fashioned ribbon candy.
