Dentyne Gum Review and Giveaway!

You might remember me mentioning last year that we chew a lot of gum in our family.  My husband is seriously freakish about his breath, which I guess is a good thing, because he eats a lot of garlic and onions and spicy things which could leave a really bad impression on someone important if my husband inadvertently breathed on them after a chips and salsa binge.  He chews so much Dentyne Arctic Chill that he started buying the little bottles of gum that fit in your cup holder.  You know...like these:
Only without the killer graphics. Until NOW!  Did you notice the awesome artwork on this particular bottle of Dentyne?  Pretty cool, yes?  Dentyne has partnered with artist Anthony Yankovic to introduce some premium badge edition bottles.  They come in twelve bold, badgy, limited edition designs for three flavors—Peppermint, Spearmint and Arctic Chill™.  Anthony previously produced limited edition designs for trend and badge-driven categories like Apparel, Skateboard and Snowboards.  Here's a link to Mr. Yankovic's website where you can peruse more of his work!

I love the edgy, eclectic look of the artwork.  There are so many interesting little details on each label that with 12 different label designs, a person could get seriously engrossed in Anthony Yankovic's artwork while chewing the gum!  And let's be honest...the reason most of us chew gum is to enhance our sociability factor by ensuring our breath is as fresh as it can be!  Or as Dentyne says:
Dentyne® is a must-have socializing essential that allows socially addicted consumers to practice safe breath for the confidence to make a close connection instantly.
The fun packaging?  Well that's an amazing bonus.  Here's how I'm using my container of Spearmint with the Anthony Yankovic label:


That last picture?  Showing all the artwork?  Took me 15 minutes to balance the bottle of gum on my steering wheel to get this cool shot.  I did it while I was waiting for my kids to get out of school.  I do these things for you, my loyal readers. You're welcome.

The lady in the car next to me watched me taking pictures of my Dentyne Gum Bottle for awhile before she finally asked what I was doing.  I told her all about the great product and the amazing limited edition artwork labels.  She knew all about Anthony Yankovic!  Apparently her son is a skater and has seen some of Mr. Yankovic's stuff on some high end skateboards.  I was really impressed by her hipness so I gave her some gum.  And I told her how she could win 3 Dentyne premium badge edition bottles herself, by entering my blog contest.  You know what she did?  She ran immediately to her car and peeled out of the parking lot before she even picked up her son to enter the giveaway.  Okay, I exaggerate...she actually just walked with me to the school gate to wait for our kids.  But she did write down my blog address so she could enter when she got home.   
 
What, what?  Yeah, I said it!  You can win 3 limited edition Anthony Yankovic Dentyne Bottles for yourself!  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me where you would put your Anthony Yankovick Dentyne Gum Bottle or tell me who you would share it with.  Contest is open to US residents only and will end on February 12th at 12 midnight PST.

Very cool containers. I would leave mine on my desk to bring a little hipness to my unhip department. I would offer gum to the co-worker who doesn't chew gum, but loves garlic coffee and smokes.

I would HAVE to share it with my Grandsons, and I would have to have one on my desk and one in the van.

Loved the review...thanks for working so hard to get that cool pic on the steering wheel.

These look amazing! I would probably show these off on my desk at work and maybe share some with my work friends, if they are nice to me :P
