Strawberry Mint Gum

I picked up this Lotte brand “CUBE Strawberry Mint Gum” at the 7-Eleven in Shinjuku, Tokyo because it just looked too damn cute. I’m not a big gum chewing person, but I had to give it a try. Come on, look at that adorable pixelated strawberry! I had to get it! Besides, the combination of strawberry and mint intrigued me..

(By the way, the 7-Elevens in Japan have ATMs that work with foreign bank cards. Not all ATMs in Japan will let you withdraw cash from your foreign ATM card. Other places in Japan that permit international ATM cards are post offices and Citibank).

So back to the strawberry mint… The gum was more sweet than minty, and the flavor wasn’t exactly long lasting. But I liked it quite a bit.

I got a nice surprise when I opened the package… One more pic after the jump:

This actually came with a tiny pad of paper that you can use to scrap your gum after you’re done with it. Only in Japan will you get such a thoughtful convenience! XD And as you can see, the gum is indeed, cubed.

Check out the cute smiley on the underside of the flap: He’s saying “So good~” (>v<)b

wth thanks for sharing dude!

Way to rock the emoticons!
