Can you eat the wrapper from Trident gum?
Not unless you're a goat... The official answer - after calling the Trident company - is that the wrappers of Trident gum are not meant to be eaten along with the gum. It's just regular old wax paper.It won't kill you, but it's probably not that much fun to do.

The shelf life for Trident gum is 4 to 6 months. This is also true for many other types of gum such as Dentyne and Bubble Yum.
When you call Trident, they will tell you that the amount of xylitol in their Trident and Stride gums is proprietary and they will not disclose the amount. According to Epic D…ental, it contains 0.17 gm. In any case, I think it is safe to assume that it is significantly less than 1 gm and therefore not high enough to prevent decay. If you want to prevent decay, studies suggest chewing 1-2 grams, 4-6 times every day. I don't believe there are any over-the-counter gums you can buy in stores which have high enough xylitol levels. You can buy xylitol gums over the internet which have 1 gm per stick.
yes you can actually eat the stride gum wrapper..but just make sure you do not swallow it and make sure if you do eat it have it with ur stride gum
"The great taste is good for your teeth"
Some flavours of Trident gum are not suitable for vegetarians because they contain gelatin or glycerin. You'll have to check the package and see for yourself.
History The first Trident gum was manufactured in 1960. It was a sugared gum that was designed to combat tartar on the teeth. The "tri" in the name signifies three enzymes it… contained that were said to dissolve the tartar, and the "dent" alerted consumers that it was designed for dental health. Trident Goes Sugar-FreeThe Trident recipe was converted to a sugar-free formula in 1964, replacing the sugar with saccharine. It was the only national brand of gum at the time that did not use sugar. This first incarnation of modern Trident was a pink gum shaped into small rectangular pieces. Over the years the formula was tweaked to include not only xylitol but sorbitol, aspartame and other sugar substitutes.
Trident Gum is created by Cadbury USA, but their headquarters are in Parisppany , New Jersey. They make the gum in Rockford, IL
From what we do at my school, yes in fact. Same with Trident gum wrappers, my friends have told me it adds to the gum. I wouldn't recommend it... but yes you can eat it. I…t gives more gum.
