Dentyne Classic Going Under the Knife!

When you’ve seen as many treasured candies and gums come and go as I have, the second you notice a favorite hasn’t been around as often lately you start to panic. This happened a few weeks ago with Dentyne Classic. It isn’t unheard of for my favorite place to pick up Dentyne Classic to be out of stock on it, but when repeated checks over a few weeks still showed “unavailable,” my worries mounted. As it turns out, my fears that Dentyne Classic was gone forever were met with good news from an inside source – that powerful breath freshener hasn’t gone toward the light, she’s gone toward the knife!

Yes, Dentyne Classic has made an appointment for a facelift. I thought she looked just perfect the way she was, with that familiar red and white pack, but I suppose getting a little work done could attract a younger following. If that younger following is what’s needed to keep Dentyne Classic rolling off the conveyor belt, I’m OK with it! As long as she’s just as beautiful on the inside as she ever was. Word is they won’t be changing up the flavor, and I’m hoping word is true. Nothing else on the market comes close to that original flavor, and there are times when only Dentyne will do!

On a side note, I took a quick peek at Dentyne’s Facebook page to see if I could find anything concrete on when to expect the new look on the shelves. I didn’t find mention of that, but I did find something else – the Dentyne Facebook page is pretty saucy and sassy! After raising my eyebrows a few times, I realized two things: 1.) I am not part of the age group that Dentyne is reaching out to through Facebook; 2.) I am glad they are continuing to evolve as a company, and finding a new audience with new products, but not forgetting their roots. Hurry back soon, Dentyne Classic. We miss you! <3
