222571222571B000HDMWR4A1Q9J1FYP0N0SJMiles Hoover1141293840000OTC Oyster CrackersOTC Oyster Crackers are another hard-to-locate product. Formerly widely available either loose or boxed, they are a hard sour-dough cracker which enhances the flavor of any soup but, particularly, that of Snow's New England Clam Chowder. Formerly from Trenton, NJ. Taste just great
222572222572B000HDMWR4A33B4XULZ7OLQRThe Great Elephant0051326585600An American InstitutionI have been enjoying OTC crackers for over 50 years beginning when my parents would take my brother and me to Wenger's Oyster House in Reading, PA, another institution from the Great Depression days. If I didn't have OTC's I wouldn't eat an oyster stew.

You have to know how to break them when putting them into your soup or stew. I see some complaints that they are too big, but these complainers are culturally illiterate! You must take two crackers in hand, and squeeze them together. One will break. Grind it smaller, then get another whole one, and repeat. I laughed at those who say OTC's are too big. What did you do- put them in your soup whole? They'll float for a year and not get soggy. You must break them as it states on the box or bag. And don't try to break just one by hand. You are not strong enough.

OTC's are indeed an American institution- been around for since 1848, and they still look and taste the same. I pity you wretches who put those despicable weenie hexagon-shaped atrocities in your soup. Be a man! Bust OTC's in your stew!
222573222573B000HDMWR4A379H45HFRBTUWCarole McCleery "Shoe crazy"0041311292800Excellent crackersBought these crackers and just love them. Can not find in stores and were used to getting them in restaurants in New Jersey. Great by themselves with horseraidish or cocktail sauce. Of course in soups too!
222574222574B000HDMWR4A35QN68RNL5RJRmom of 7 month old0121324771200GiantBe warned that these crackers are giant. They don't look the the oyster crackers you're probably thinking of. That said, they taste fine and are a good value. Still, I wish I would have known in advance that they aren't traditional oyster crackers.
222575222575B000HDMWR4AAUICTIUBVU7RRoy Berger "Everyman"0211318118400TERRIBLEI thought these would taste like regular oyster crackers, but they are pretty tasteless. Not even as good as stale bread altho they seemed to be made out of bread dough.
222576222576B0056CS13KA1Q17F0Q3PZ2CNconniemonster0011326585600Smells and tastes horribleI liked the price of this extract and champagne flavoring is not the easiest to find. I opened the bottle.. and it smelled off- kind of sickly sweet and medicinal. The taste was incredibly far from any champagne flavoring I have ever tried- disgusting. Don't waste your money-
222577222577B003UMXE6WA3OH0EXLLRNCERtulims2251300320000Great and Fresh TaroThis is top quality Taro. For some reason I was not expecting the quality to be this GREAT and FRESH. These are also big and huge Taros. They are so fresh as if they were just pulled from the field and shipped. I have not eaten taro this good in a while.
222578222578B004W7KX54A1R8M8HMWS7PQ8PankoDX0051333065600Worth the money.This is a great tea to keep with you and re-steep during the day. The taste is fresh and fine, and it has a hint of taro flavor. (This may be due to the other teas it was shipped with.) The leaves are of a pretty good quality too.

Rose "RofaRose"171751156377600Great taste, fun to chew, strong scientific backing for health claims of XylitolAfter using an "all-natural" gum (that contained cane sugar) and getting my first cavity in 12 years after 6 months of use, I knew I needed a switch. I heard about Xylitol from a naturopathic student, that basically, the bad bacteria in your mouth feed on Xylitol but they can't digest it, and the good bacteria can eat it, so they proliferate. I thought I had tried other Xylitol gums in the past and didn't like them, but I decided to give this another chance because I want a gum to chew after meals that is actually good for my teeth. I was pleasantly surprised at the Spry gum! It has a great flavor (which goes away pretty soon after chewing, but it's a nice shot of good taste), but the best part is that the gum itself has a great texture to it and continues to be fun to chew for as long as you want. It doesn't even turn hard after drinking water like most gums do. I am a medical student so I did a search of the research literature and the claims of Xylitol are more than proven. However, all of the literature and research studies explain that you need 4-12 g of Xylitol a day (no need to get more than 15), but the average piece of gum has .75-1 g, so you'll need to chew at least 4-5 pieces a day to get the dental benefits (chewing it only sporadically, i.e. once a day, did NOT show any dental benefits). No problem for me, I chew one after every meal (I have 5-6 a day), and love having the fresh clean feeling as well as knowing that I'm doing something great for my teeth.
222580222580B000Z8Z8DQA281NPSIMI1C2RRebecca of Amazon "The Rebecca Review"8851135555200Helps to Reduce CavitiesAfter chewing one piece of Spry peppermint gum you may notice your teeth and gums feeling more healthy. Since I'm always looking for natural alternatives to regular processed sugar as an ingredient, this item caught my attention.

Not only does Xylitol not promote tooth decay, it has natural ingredients to decrease plaque formation and adhesion. Xylitol is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits including plums, strawberries and raspberries. Our bodies actual produce about 11g of Xylitol a day.

It can be commercially manufactured from "xylan hemicellulose" sources such as Birch trees in Finland. Some Xylitol products are also made from corn.

This product is made with a Xylitol, gum base, natural flavors, glycerin, gum Arabic, soy lecithin and beesewax.

Xylitol actually has been proven to:

Reduce Tooth Decay
Prevent Cavities by inhibiting the growth of bacteria
Inhibits the growth of a related species, Streptococcus pneumoniae, which is a cause of ear infections
Reduce the secretion of Plaque Acids
Facilitate the Remineralization of Tooth Enamel

What more could we ask for from a gum? This gum is a natural defense system and you will start to notice the results. Unlike other sugary gums, this will reduce cavities and it is just as flavorful, if not more so than most gums.

222581222581B000Z8Z8DQA1U0AT56ZRUF1TBrian Stanley6651184889600This is a great productI tried to find chewing gum at my local supermarket that did NOT contain aspartame, or some other man-made sugar substitute. I never was able to. I checked my local health food store and they sell Spry gum and Spry toothpaste. The gum is just as good tasting as any major brand, and it doesn't hurt my stomach. It doesn't become ultra sticky like major brand gum either, so I can give it to my 3-year-old and 1-year-old without worry. The flavor doesn't last too long, but chewing it is good for your teeth, so I don't have a problem going through it quicker than major brand gum. One of the best parts - it's cheaper than major brand gum. I get a pack of 10 for $0.89 from my local food store. The others cost $1.10 at the supermarket.
I also tried their toothpaste and I love it. I use it everyday. It's safe for my little ones too. It says right on the label that there's nothing to worry about if the toothpaste is swallowed, because it is not harmful since the product is fluoride-free and all natural. I highly recommend Spry products - especially for families.
222582222582B000Z8Z8DQA3M8PFP2O0EXOWDejan Deh "ddeh"5541169596800Healthy way to chew...Being a gum addict, I go through a pack a day. Sugar does a number on your teeth, so I prefer sugar-free... or I did, until I read how many cancer causing ingredients the leading gum brands have. You might as well smoke ;-). That's where SPRY comes in... made with Xylitol, a natural sugar derivative (and not `natural' like Splenda) it has a long lasting flavor and good texture. The only problem I ran into is that the consistency degrades after about 30 minutes of chewing.

All in all, for a 30 min gum fix, Spry is #1.
222583222583B000Z8Z8DQA1HZWQI7K3G1WCKathleen E. Pyne4441160006400Just as good as other cinnamon gumIn addition to being better for your teeth, I think this gum has just as good of flavor as any of the cinnamon gums. I enjoy it and so do my kids.
222584222584B000Z8Z8DQA15B6KEZ0CM3KLsurfin' ma "KT"4411290297600Not Gluten Free enough...Even though there is a statement right on the front of these packages of gum that claims "Gluten Free", I don't believe this gum really is. I bought a pack of Peppermint from the health food store that my daughter and I both chewed (we are GF/Celiac) and we BOTH reacted to this gum. We both tried it again a few days later, thinking perhaps it was something else we had eaten, considering this gum says Gluten Free right on the front. The reaction was WORSE the second time around!!! This company sources their Xylitol from China, and almost all the companies I looked at online that you can purchase Xylitol from also make lots of Wheat Gluten----so I am assuming some sort of cross contamination at the source of production in China, for which this Spry company does not test for! They are obviously just assuming that the product is 'naturally' gluten free and taking unreliable China's word for it----at the expense of customers with Celiac disease who get sick from this product. Very disappointed.
222585222585B000Z8Z8DQA3FLCOLQLU8JW3Debs3341142553600good stuff!This is a great tasting gum which is somewhat long lasting in cinnamon flavor and has the added benefit of being good for your teeth!
222586222586B000Z8Z8DQAQDKKTFH5XREMI. Finicle3341208476800Great flavor, for 10 seconds, but a good alt. to AspartameThe Xlylitol leaves your mouth feeling squeeky clean (kind of like the "Orbit" gum commercials make you think their gum feels like)!

They really need to work on how to make the flavor last longer.

I used to chew "Extra, Sugar-Free" gum and finally made the connection that whatever was 'in' it made my glands in my throat and my tonsils swell like I was getting a cold. I took some herbs and vitamins and the symptoms subsided, but EVERY time I put more gum back in my mouth, day after day, that my glands were seriously irritated or working hard at killing 'something'.

I don't know what was wrong, but now, I will not touch "Extra sugar-free gum" again. I love this gum, even if the flavoring and texture does not last an 'extra, extra long time' ;-)
222587222587B000Z8Z8DQA3LQS08K2OBI5ZJ. Lim2221298505600Loses flavor FAST most likely not worth it

222589222589B000Z8Z8DQA2UTZ7HH4UKDZWD. Nakao1141316822400spry spearmint gumNot as satisfying as Orbit White. I was disappointed with the lack of flavor compared to Orbit White, and from the description of the product I expected more. But it's still better than most sugar-free gums on the market.
222590222590B000Z8Z8DQA2AVYSXICESSTKE. Kerby1141299801600Nice after meals.I bought Spry spearmint gum because I hoped it would help me get rid of sugar cravings. It hasn't worked too well for me.

I do like the spearmint flavor, but it only lasts for a few minutes. (After that it has kind of a chemical flavor that doesn't taste good.) I do like chewing this gum after meals; it works great to freshen things up.

This gum feels really small in my mouth. Maybe two pieces would be better?

BUY THIS: if you want to freshen your breath after meals, if you only want to chew gum for a couple minutes, and maybe if you want to share gum with kids (since the xylitol is better than sugary gums and artificial sugars are pretty scary).

DO NOT BUY THIS: if you want to chew your gum for very long.
222591222591B000Z8Z8DQA24NAZRQJV3XKZEllen Culver1151299542400Good for dietingI am giving up candy and sweets for one month and then going to continue best I can. I am loving this as an alternative. It has the hard candy shell which I really need right now. Is a more firm gum so it won't stick. If you like the really soft gums, then this is not for you. Since I am using it for weight loss I like that I have to chew a bit. Perfect cinnamon bite. Not too hot, but has that little bite. Average lasting in flavor.
Great for travel.
222592222592B000Z8Z8DQA1SOCY9DW3C41Bkinder1151297209600Xclear-Spry sugar free gumI have dry mouth and this was recommended by my dentist-use it regularly and works well.The sorbitol in other sugarless gum caused abdominal problems
222593222593B000Z8Z8DQA298GL2D0BHGKZJ. Figueroa1151291766400Smooth Taste.Very smooth, pleasant taste. Not spicy or tingly. It could last longer though, but then again, it's not full of sugar or chemical sweets like other gums. Love it. Simply put, the best tasting spearmint gum I've had in a while.
222594222594B000Z8Z8DQA2BXCQOUWYIGUWS. OBrien "-"1141284940800great gum, but flavor doesn't last longgreat gum alternative with no "bad" ingredients. doesn't stick to my fillings. but flavor doesn't last long. great for freshening breath.
222595222595B000Z8Z8DQA3U8SOW9FWOOBVJ. Hess1151271808000Good stuffI prefer these to the large jar because you can keep the box in your desk and throw a pack in your pocket or briefcase when you're on the go. Good gum and good for your teeth. Highly recommend.
222596222596B000Z8Z8DQA2J87CYIQ2A3XBMatthew Lloyd1151270857600Delicious and healthyI keep a box of these on my desk at work to chew after meals. Very tasty, well packaged, and great for your teeth. Highly recommended!
222597222597B000Z8Z8DQA3SSF70KY5AJSMNoFear_20082331293062400Flavor doesn't lastI was looking for a gum with xylitol and found lots of good reviews on this one. It has more xylitol than some other gums, such as Trident.

Overall, it's just OK. I'll finish off what I purchased, but I'll also be looking at other gums with xylitol.

After chewing for a few seconds, I noticed the gum feels very small, which makes it less satisfying to chew. As a comparison, the tiny Trident gum I used to chew felt almost twice as large in my mouth as this Spry gum. Not a huge deal, but if you have a large mouth, you may need/want to chew two pieces at a time, which increases the cost.

Good:
Contains more xylitol than some other gums, such as Trident.
Good flavor (while it lasts).

Not so great:
Flavor lasts less than 30 seconds. Still tastes ok after flavor is gone.
Individual piece of gum seems very small after chewing.
222598222598B000Z8Z8DQANCOXA53HJL7LJay Smith0041350864000Great flavor and texturePros:
Awesome flavor
Great texture (for someone who likes harder gums and not the kind that disintegrate into your mouth when you leave them in the sun)
Relatively inexpensive
Contains Xylitol!!!

Cons:
Flavor fades quicker than other gums
Takes 2 pieces to feel like you're chewing something substantial enough not to bite your own lip

All-in-all, this is currently one of my favorite gums.
222599222599B000Z8Z8DQA2SYAQXJGRY3XEaznpoet0031347580800Just OK ... For Xylitol, I recommend Ice Breakers Ice Cube instead ...If it wasn't for dentally beneficial ingredient Xylitol in this gum, this gum would be 2 stars. The gum was small; had to chew two to get the same size feel as National brand sugarless gums. The flavor faded quickly and had slightly bitter after taste.

If you want gum with Xylitol, Ice Breakers Ice Cube in any flavor is the gold standard in my book.
222600222600B000Z8Z8DQA329BPZM8EBPLQLaura Bubna0051345248000Spry gumIt is the best tasting naturally flavored and sweetened gum! It contains no artificial ingredients. It is sweetened with cavity fighting Xylitol.
