Just as the name suggests, the flavor of this gum is a mystery. The marketing and appeal of the gum has been designed to keep consumers guessing what the flavor is and this is what has made it so attractive to so many people. Its advertising has even been designed with a tongue in cheek tone to keep the flavor of the Stride Mega mystery Gum a secret: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzLkRr2g3aA In this way, it has a bit of a Charlie and The Chocolate Factory mystery surrounding it and this has spurred on thousands of people to post their suggestions on online forums and Internet sites dedicated to finally uncovering the mystery.
Some people think it is simply a mixture of Stride’s pre-existing flavors: The Fruit Stripe Gum and Stride’s Fruit Forever. Other people are claiming they have been able to pick out specific flavors that have been combined together to give the gum its mystery flavor. Some of the flavors people claim to be able to taste include: •Strawberry •Mint •Ginger Ale •Lemon •Passionfruit •Pineapple •Watermelon •Raspberry •Mango •Apple ……..etc.
Other people think that is tastes like other sweets or soft drinks. Some believe it tastes like strawberry sherbet or fruity gummy bear sweets. Then there are those who can taste pink lemonade and orange punch.
Of course, there have been a huge number of other suggestions about what flavor the gum could be. Some people are even claiming that each bit of gum in the pack has a different flavor and this is what the great mystery is, as there are constantly a few different flavors to pick out.
The only people who know the true secret behind the flavor of the gum are the manufacturers, and it doesn’t look like they are planning on revealing that secret anytime soon.
It's Guaraná. I participated in its flavoring. Figured I'd put all of the questions to rest. Guaraná, Paullinia cupana (syn. P. Crysan, P. Sorbilis) is a climbing plant in the maple family, Sapindaceae, native to the Amazon basin and especially common in Brazil. Guarana features large leaves and clusters of flowers, and is best known for its fruit, which is about the size of a coffee bean. Flavor is also mixed with the flavoring from the fruit Theobroma Cacao. This fruit is where the world gets its chocolate from. The fruit contains a large quantity of seeds the size of quarters. Each seed is coated with a white slimy membrane. This membrane is the part of the fruit that can be eaten immediately once the outer shell of the fruit is opened. It's freaking delicious, unfortunately there isn't much available. So, underneath this membrane is the Cacao seed. During the cocoa powder process. This cacao seed or more widely known as cocoa, is crushed into a fine powder. The raw powder is then taken and mixed with a myriad of different flavors and additives to make the chocolate we buy and eat and love. But so anyway, yea the flavor in this Mystery gum is taken from the combination of flavors from both of those incredible fruits.
Well many ppl hav been sayin it taste like that zebra gum and they say it is all flavors and well I think both choices are reasonable but I hav tasted that zebra gum and it does taste just like stride mega mystery gum and mixing all flavors of stride that would taste weird and it wouldn't taste like stride mega mystery gum so I choose zebra gum. P.S.zebra gum and stride mega mystery gum smell alike. Well this my choice you can think it tastes like well wateva you think everybodys taste buds don't taste the same way so you may think it taste different then what I think.
I just got it today and its really good! I would guess that its some kind of lemon lime melon type flavor. But at the same time it feels like the flavor keeps changing inside of your mouth.....p.s I'm chewing it now
I think it tastes somewhat like a cross between Fruit Stripe Gum and Stride's Fruit Forever. I'm chewing it now. I doubt that I'll buy another pack. The mystery for me is why did I waste a buck 19 on this? BTW, I love their Sweet Peppermint flavor.
Listen, people. The flavor is Mango. No mixes, just mango, I went through exactly 36 tests with the gum, to only figure out it was Mango. There is no blend of fruits, just Mango. And, how in the heck does it taste like Ice tea, are ginger peach? (Whatever that is.) Let this shut all of you guys up...
I had some Orbit pina colada gum one time and it tastes a lot like Mega Mystery. Here are some other ideas: The leftover gum Stride Shift with all flavors All flavors mixed together (Doubtful) Random flavor in each pack, i.e. One pack is orange, a different pack is berry, ect. Whatever it is, it sure is good!
While reading this and chewing the gum I believe the closet guesses are gummy bears and then zebra gum cut with strawberry and apple with a faint hint of lemon citrus and gobstopper with an old school strawberry gum cut, but because the flavor fades away soo fast I'm guessing zebra gum because that flavor also fades super fast, truely delicious though
Its a new made up flavor, I'm sure they took a bunch of chemicals and artificial flavors and dumped them together to make it taste like it does, but yeah I'm getting passionfruit, pineapple, strawberry, watermelon, raspberry, citrus, a lil mint and the occasional taste of grossness. ITS POISON CANCER FLAVOR!
I bought 6 packs of this new Mystery flavor and tried different pieces from different packs. They are not all the same. The flavors in the packs vary. Some taste like the zebra gum some taste like a mango and watermellon. Thats my .02$ on the subject. Test this out then ssee what you think. You could be surprised because the actual flavor IS a mystery because not every pack is the same flavor. Kthnxbye
