Extra Fruit Sensations Gum: Horrors!

I use sugar-free gum as a adjunct to Nicorette.
Most gum tastes like crap unless it's peppermint flavor, but I like to experiment with other flavors just to change things up.
Today I bought a pack of Extra Fruit Sensations gum in Sweet Tropical flavor. The pack shows an illustration of sliced oranges, grapefruit and pineapple.
On the pack, there's a splat that says "Tastes Like Real Fruit."
No, it doesn't.
It tastes like the same kind of chemicals they use in off-brand floor cleaners, room deodorizers and dollar-store votive candles.
I usually give products I dislike to my neighbor, who loves anything as long as it's free. But this time, I'm throwing the rest of this gum in the trash. If I tried to give it to the neighbor, I'm pretty sure she'd be offended.
I don't care if I'm wasting the 99 cents it cost me.
It's just too horrible to give away.

Thx for the heads up Zip, I've been tempted to try that gum.
