New York: day 389

**Gum Review**

Extra Dessert Delights: Available in Mint Chocolate Chip, Key Lime Pie or Strawberry Shortcake flavor.

Who knew that dessert — or rather, dessert flavor — could be so artfully and scientifically condensed into a stick of gum (and just in time for Fashion Week!). I sampled the Mint Chocolate Chip and Key Lime Pie varietals in lieu of one of my four daily dessert-meals. The MCC, strangely fresh, has flat notes of cocoa and a subtle, smooth finish. Delightfully weird to the end. The KLP is a more high-octane flavor; tangy and cloying but disturbingly accurate. B/B+
