Traditional way vs. Gumfriend dispenser

The Story behind Gumfriend:

I’ve always enjoyed gum, mints and Skittles. One day, while driving home from work, I felt bored and a little tired, and wanted to enjoy a mint.

But it was hard to get the mint while I was driving and still keep my eyes on the road. I also knew my hands were dirty after being at work all day. 

So I came up with the idea of inventing a dispenser that would be easy to use, hygienic, save money and help the environment by cutting down on a lot of packaging.

Over the past year, my friends and I did hard work, redesigned the dispenser 4 times before coming up with the current easy-to-use, cool-to-own Gumfriend design.

With your support, we can make this product a reality—and make life a little greener and sweeter! 

Please share the video to everyone you know, so we can bring Gumfriend dispenser to you.Thank you!
