Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't quite make it.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Ha Ni Tsukinikui Gum from Lotte translates as "gum which doesn't stick to your teeth." It's lemon-flavored with a hint of mint, and contains vitamin C and xylitol. It's not very elastic, and the flavor and chewiness fade quickly. It's soft, and won't really refresh your breath.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

This is another from the "Gum That Doesn't Stick To Your Teeth" series by Lotte. This one purports to improve your memory, because it contains gingko biloba extract. It's targeted at older adults, and it's easy to chew, so some may find it too soft. The thing we really didn't like was the taste - it's similar to the herb perilla, and rather bitter. But shockingly, it was our best performer in the fresh-breath test!

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

POs-Ca F from Glico is muscat grape flavored with a bit of mint and contains calcium and flouride. It's a little artificially sweet, probably because it's a sugarless gum. However the flavor is good, and it's chewy but not sticky. We think children would like it a lot.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

TopValu Lime Mint Gum from Aeon is slightly sweet and minty. It's refreshing but gets sweeter as you chew, and the texture is soft. It's cheap, and there's a lot of gum in one package, so if you go through a lot of gum, it could be good for you.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Lotte's Black Black Gum has caffeine and a spicy, strong mint flavor. We wouldn't call it delicious, but the intense taste will probably wake you up just as much as the caffeine. It's also a good choice to clean your mouth out, since the flavor lasts on your tongue even after you spit it out.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Xylish Hyper Cool by Meiji will wake you up and possibly make your head explode. The mint is so strong it's almost painful. It definitely refreshed our bad breath, replacing our stinky garlic smell with a refreshing mint. If you like extreme flavors, go for it!

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

No Time Gum from Lotte is sold as an oral care solution when you have no time to brush after a meal. It has large granules that perhaps act to scrub your whites back to pearly, but you'll get tired of chewing it. The taste is thin and not really satisfying.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Ha Migaki "Tooth Brushing" Gum from Kracie has little taste, no refreshing sensation, and a rubbery texture. We suppose it will clean your teeth, but there are better choices.

How We Tested the Gum

How We Tested the Gum

We put each product through a series of tests to check for the following:

  1. Taste and texture
  2. How long the flavor lasted
  3. Breath-freshening ability

Then we gave them scores from 0.1 to 5.0.

Test ① Did it Taste Good?

Test ① Did it Taste Good?

Five of our staff chewed pieces of gum to see how they tasted and what the texture was like. If there was a flavor assortment, we used the grape kind to keep our tests consistent.


We've included the radar chart we used to assess the gums in the product rankings. From the top, going clockwise, the categories are:


  • Hardness
  • Stickiness
  • Refreshment
  • Sweetness

Fruit Gum Tastes Better Than Mint Gum

Fruit Gum Tastes Better Than Mint Gum

If you're prioritizing taste, go for fruity flavors. We found that the Xylish Rainbow Assortment from Meiji and the "Won't Stick To Your Teeth" Lemon Gum from Lotte were especially delicious. They weren't overly sweet, but grape and lemon flavors were just yummy!


On the other hand, Black Black and Xylish Hyper Cool Mint were so strong that our tongues hurt. If you want to wake up or need severe breath correction, these are suitable, but not for just enjoying the taste.

Test ② How Long Did the Flavor Last?

Test ② How Long Did the Flavor Last?

Three of us chewed each gum until it got hard and tasteless. Then we checked our stopwatches! The final time is an average between 3 testers.

Chewing Duration isn't Related to the Shape or Brand

Chewing Duration isn't Related to the Shape or Brand

There was a 2-minute difference between our top performing gum and our worst! (Those were Pos-ca Clear Mint and Xylish Hyper Cool, respectively.) But we couldn't identify any trend for this test. You'll just have to read our reviews to find out!

Test ③ Could it Freshen Breath?

Test ③ Could it Freshen Breath?

The lucky members of our staff got to eat some delicious, pungent, garlicky dumplings full of onions and spices and then chew the gum. Our unlucky staff members had to sniff the results.

Gum with Polyphenols Really Works on Stinky Breath!

Gum with Polyphenols Really Works on Stinky Breath!

Gum that contains polyphenols performed the best in the test. One was Clorets Original Mint (which we haven't included in our ranking since it's not a Japanese brand, but you should try it) and another was Lotte's "Memory-Improving Gum That Doesn't Stick To Your Teeth."


Mint gums covered up our stinky breath to some extent, but the odors were sort of mixed together and not really erased. If your main priority is breath freshening, choose one with polyphenols.

How to Choose a Good Chewing Gum - Buying Guide

We recommend thinking about three things before just grabbing the first gum you see at the checkout counter.

Check the Ingredients

Some gums help prevent cavities and maintain oral health. Others are sugarless and good for dieters. We even found one with gingko biloba to improve your memory!

Look for Caffeine for an Easy Pick-me-up

Look for Caffeine for an Easy Pick-me-up

If you want to stay awake while driving or avoid dozing off during that boring class after lunch, get a gum with caffeine. If you aren't sure about the ingredients, a good rule of thumb is that the black packages often have caffeine.


A lot of these are very strongly flavored, too. The spicy mint will also help to keep you alert. But you may not enjoy them as far as everyday chewing refreshment goes.

Prevent Tooth Decay with Xylitol

Prevent Tooth Decay with Xylitol

Xylitol promotes saliva production, which protects your teeth and suppresses the growth of bacteria that cause tooth decay. A lot of the gums we tested contain this ingredient.


But be careful where you toss your used gum! Xylitol is toxic to both cats and dogs and can, in fact, be lethal. Keep your gum in a place that your pets can't get to!

Choose Sugarless Gum to Cut Calories

Choose Sugarless Gum to Cut Calories

If you use gum to help you avoid snacking, don't add calories from the gum! Regular kinds have anywhere from 9 to 21 calories per piece, but sugarless gum has only 2 to 3 calories.


Even though it's sugarless, it can still be sweet. Many of them contain artificial sweeteners, so you'll get a great taste with less guilt.

Choose Mint Gum to Control Bad Breath

Choose Mint Gum to Control Bad Breath

Mint will refresh your mouth after eating and cover up bad breath better than fruit flavors. I mean, toothpaste is usually mint too, right? Fruit flavors just won't be as powerful against strong-smelling food odors. 


It's great to chew after eating stinky food or to stave off morning breath. We were concerned with this in our rankings, so you can see how each product performed.

Choose the Kind of Package You Like

Choose the Kind of Package You Like

We recommend getting a canister if you chew a lot of gum. Most have over 100 pieces in them! Although you can't carry it around easily, you can leave it on your desk at work or in your locker, and you can always divide it up into smaller containers.


However, if you want convenience, get sticks of gum. There are also pouch types in resealable bags that are easy to throw in your purse or backpack.

How about Some Great Mints and Candy?

No need to visit the drugstore or convenience store! We've got your candy aisle fix covered!
