I use the arm and hammer dental gum because it's all I can find in stores around here. It has other artificial sweeteneers in it though, so I'd love to find something better.

Spiffies contains 1.0 grams of xylitol and no other sweeteners.

We like Spry, but we can only find it in our local Sprouts and Whole Foods and it's pricey. DS loves it, tho'.

I didn't know Spiffies made gum. Where do you get it??

My kids just chew Trident but it has sorbitol in it too so I'd like to find something else.

I like the Epic gum over the Spry. But the Spry is good too, it just gets "old" quicker and I have to spit it out after 20-30 minutes. I order from homesteadmarket.com

We use Recaldent gum. It tastes like Juicy Fruit.

I think the Trident and other grocery store type gums also have aspartame in them. I tried those too but chucked them when I found out about the chemical sweeteners.

We really love this brand from Finland. They also make some very nice mints. I could live on just those mints. 100% xylitol sweetened, and NOT made in China.

Here is the SPIFFIES gum!
My son really loves it, I am always just looking for the "new" best gum.

I use a Japanese brand called Xylish. Occasionally I use Watering Kissmint (another Japanese brand), Icebreakers IceCubes Dragonfruit flavor or Trident.
