How to Choose a Japanese Chewing Gum - Buying Guide

Keep these three essential points in mind when choosing a brand of Japanese gum that suits your tastes. 

Check the Ingredients

Chewing gum serves all sorts of purposes, for example as a way to help wake up in the morning, or as a distraction while dieting or while trying to quit smoking. Choose one with the ingredients that best serve your needs.

Look for Caffeinated Gums for an Easy Pick-Me-Up

Look for Caffeinated Gums for an Easy Pick-Me-Up

Choose caffeinated gum if you need to concentrate or ward off drowsiness. Caffeinated gum is a great choice since most also have a strong cooling effect. However, because its flavor has some punch to it, it may not be suitable for some for everyday chewing.

To find out if it contains caffeine, if you can read Japanese, check the ingredients list. Most caffeinated gums come in black packaging, which is another way to identify them.

Look for Xylitol if You Have a Sweet Tooth

Look for Xylitol if You Have a Sweet Tooth

If you have a sweet tooth that needs satiating choose a gum that contains xylitol. Xylitol is a natural sweetener and a great option for dieters

Choose Sugarless Gum to Cut Calories

Choose Sugarless Gum to Cut Calories

If you want to chew gum while dieting, choose gum that is labeled sugarless, since they have a reduced amount of calories. You may think that sugarless gum lacks flavor, but they are often sweetened with artificial or natural sweeteners instead of sugar, so they taste just as good as regular gum.

② Choose Mint Gum to Control Bad Breath

② Choose Mint Gum to Control Bad Breath

We recommend mint-flavored gum for those who want to refresh their mouth and cover bad breath. It has a fresh aroma and provides a cooling sensation which helps to refresh the mouth. It is perfect for covering up pungent breath after eating and bad breath after just waking up in the morning.


We tested the effectiveness of each product in controlling bad breath, so if you are interested in the gum that can best control bad breath, please refer to our test results.

Choose the Kind of Package You Like

Choose the Kind of Package You Like

The large-capacity canister type is recommended if you plan on keeping it at work or home and tend to chew a lot of gum. Although less convenient in terms of portability, each canister contains more than 100 pieces and will surely last you a long time.


For those who want to carry a pack with them at all times, we recommend the stick type, such as Stride or Fitz, which will fit conveniently in your pocket. Those who want to carry gum in their bags should consider choosing the resealable pouch type

How We Tested the Japanese Chewing Gums

Our editors searched Japanese e-commerce sites such as Amazon, Rakuten, and Yahoo! Shopping for the best chewing gum available online, as well as products that were popular at convenience stores and supermarkets. We then picked out the 21 most popular products and tested them.


We tested each of the products for the following:

  1. Taste
  2. How long does it last?
  3. Breath freshening

Test ① Taste

Test ① Taste

We had five testers try out each of the 21 products and conduct a taste and texture comparison.

We rated the taste on a scale of 0.1 to 5.0 based on firmness, chewiness, coolness, and sweetness.

Note that in our tests, for brands with a wide assortment of flavors, we chose the grape flavor, as it has the most distinct taste so is good for comparison. 

Test Highlight: For Taste, Fruit Flavored Gum Is the Way to Go!

Test Highlight: For Taste, Fruit Flavored Gum Is the Way to Go!

Gum with fruit flavors like grape and lemon scored the highest marks for taste. In particular, the Lotte's Xylitol Rainbow Assortment and their lemon-flavored Hanitsukinikui were well-received, not too sweet, and good for freshening up the mouth.

On the other hand, Black Black from Lotte and Meiji's Xylish Hypercool Mint were unpopular because they had strong cooling flavors that were almost painfully spicy. However, Black Black gum is excellent for warding off drowsiness and waking you up in the morning.

Test ② How Long Did the Flavor Last?

Test ② How Long Did the Flavor Last?

Next, we tested how long the flavor of the gum lasted. Using a stopwatch to measure the time elapsed, we had three testers chew each gum until it got tasteless and then averaged the times. 

Test Highlight: Chewing Duration Is Independent of Brand and Shape

Test Highlight: Chewing Duration Is Independent of Brand and Shape

In terms of duration, POs-Ca Clear Mint from Glico lasted the longest, at four minutes and 55 seconds. Meiji's Xylish Gum Hypercool only held on for three minutes and three seconds, which made for a difference of almost two minutes!


Nevertheless, there was no observable trend in duration by manufacturer or gum shape, and the duration of flavor varied widely from product to product. The product ranking displays how long each product's flavor lasted, so please refer to it if you are interested.

Test ③ Breath Freshening

Test ③ Breath Freshening

A few lucky members of our staff got to eat some delicious, pungent, garlicky dumplings full of chives and spices and then chewed each gum for a minute. Our unlucky staff members had to sniff the results.

Test Highlight: Gums With Polyphenols Effectively Masked Stinky Breath

Test Highlight: Gums With Polyphenols Effectively Masked Stinky Breath

The two products that worked particularly well as breath fresheners were Clorets XP Original Mint and Hanitsukinikui Kiokuryoku from Lotte. Looking at the ingredients, both contained polyphenols, from which we deduced that polyphenols cover bad breath well.


Generally, mint gums overrode the dumpling odor but did not completely suppress it, and the resulting odor was a mixture of mint and dumplings. If you are concerned about bad breath after a smelly meal, we highly recommend gums that include polyphenols.

How about Some Great Mints and Candy?

No need to visit the drugstore or convenience store. We've got your candy aisle fix covered. Check out these great options!

However, with various brands like Ebara and Kikkoman releasing several types of sauces made from different bases, as well as not knowing where to buy them, it can be difficult to know which yakiniku sauce really best suits meat.In order to figure this out, our Japanese editors gathered the 25 best-selling yakiniku sauces from EC sites popular in Japan, like Amazon, Rakuten, and Yahoo!
