First off- the gum is not new, just the container, so it is a given the gum is as fab as always.
We have all given them a thumbs up, with a minor caveat.
The designs are bright, bold and colorful- hip,trendy and totally now, the teens and early 20's especially find them awesome.
The size is wonderful- perfect to fit in the cupholder of your vehicle and/or toss in your backpack/purse/diaper bag.
Since the lid can either be completely opened or just a small opening perfect for shaking out a piece or two of gum the container is very versatile.
For those into recycling (and who isn't these days?) one thing that came immediately to mind is they would be perfect if I were still in the northeast and doing a lot of driving where the quartereaters are out to get you.
If you don't know what I am talking about- there are an awful lot of toll roads and you can zip on by them a lot quicker if you have exact change or tokens so you don't have to get in a long line, just toss the amount into a bucket and be on your merry way. Not sure what they are really called everyone I know calls them quartereaters. ;-)
Where we ran into a problem is if you aren't very careful when opening (and we weren't with the first) you will rip the artwork and instead of just removing the safety part, we tore up the artwork. Oops. So, one of our containers has the artwork completely off, and a second, though we were careful, has a small tear that gets a little worse with wear- it will last a while, but we can see it not lasting forever, especially if miss fidgety mindlessly picks at it as she occasionally has a tendency to do.
Overall we are impressed and will be buying them again- and being the shallow divas that we are, if we aren't in the mood for a specific type of gum, (and since we buy in bulk, and often buy several varieties at a time) yes, we'll choose the pretty packaging. It's what we do. ;-)
