I was contacted by Dentyne and asked to participate in evaluating their new packaging. The product itself is the same, they have just changed the packaging. They have sent me two premium badge limited edition bottles of the Peppermint flavored gum. I agreed to give my opinion of the new, limited edition packaging and the artwork (created by Anthony Yankovic).
I like the artwork. I think it’s cute and engaging. It definitely would catch my attention in the store. I like that the bottles fit nicely into the cup holder of my car. I also like the easy lift up tabs. The small one allows you to pour the gum out, one at a time. The larger one allows you to pop open the top and grab a couple.
Here’s what I don’t like, and some suggestions on how to improve.
2. Too big for my purse.
I like the concept of having my gum in a bottle. The traditional way that gum is packaged always has me hunting for it in my purse. A bottle would be easier to locate, I just think that a thinner bottle would be more practical for me.
