Hi! We're excited to introduce Simply Gum, the first all natural premium chewing gum.
We came up with idea for Simply Gum after learning that the regular chewing gum you see on grocery store shelves is filled with artificial substances, including some of the same components used in the manufacture of car tires, and white glue, as well as artificial sweeteners like aspartame. Not exactly the stuff you'd want to throw in a mixing bowl!
As we did more research, we found that consumers are kept in the dark about what they are chewing because conventional gum brands hide up to 80 synthetic ingredients in the catch-all term "gum base" on the label. And we soon discovered that although there are a few gums in the US market claiming to be "natural," none of them are actually 100% natural.
So we set out to make a better chew.
We decided to make a gum that was made from all natural ingredients. One that was better for our bodies and our planet. One that told the truth and made us feel better about ourselves for chewing it.
After lots of experimenting and tinkering, we came up with a formula for an all-natural gum, using only six ingredients. No toxins, no synthetics, no hidden substances. At the Simply Gum kitchen in NYC, our gum chefs handcraft these ingredients into the highest quality gum available.
Our commitment to you is that we will never put anything artificial in our chewing gum. And we will always be totally transparent.
How does our gum taste? We're starting with a Cinnamon flavor. It's not synthetically sweet like most brands that use artificial sweeteners. And the flavor is extremely long lasting - much longer than regular gum. Our gum has a nice, soft texture that provides a wholesome chew. We think you're going to love it. Additional flavors will be introduced down the road.
How does our gum look? Our gum is handcrafted right right here in NYC into the shape of little round balls. We don't use any artificial colors, so it's a natural light brown color, versus conventional gum, which comes in artificially colored medicinal tablets. We like to say our pieces look like little truffles!
While we were at it, we also decided to make an amazing package, made of recycled paper. One that you will be proud to carry around and share.
We're asking for your help to re-invent chewing gum. We will use the money raised on kickstarter to make our first production batch of gum and to purchase our first round of packaging.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and comments. We'd love to hear from you.
Thank you! And Happy Chewing!
Risks and challenges
Depending on the costs involved, our actual packaging may look slightly different than the prototype in the photos and video. The art will be the same, but the construction may be slightly simpler.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
