Giveaway & Review: Limited Edition Dentyne Bottles by Artist Anthony Yankovic [CLOSED]

To make the launch of their new convenient, reusable, and recyclable bottles more fun, Dentyne enlisted graphic designer and artist Anthony Yankovic to create the artwork for these limited edition bottles. These bottles contain the same sugarless gum Dentyne users have grown to love, but there are 60 pieces in each one.

As a work-at-home mom, I've found these bottles to be much more convenient to keep around than small packets of gum. I can keep a bottle on my desk and throw one in my purse. My husband keeps a bottle in one of the drink holders in the car, but he says he prefers the smaller packets to carry in his pocket when he's on the go. The hourglass shape of these bottles makes it easy to pop open the top to share one or two pieces with a friend, even for children who have smaller hands.


These Dentyne limited edition bottles are available in Peppermint, Spearmint, and Arctic Chill. Each flavor has a different cool funky design in a different color scheme. You can view all three on Anthony Yankovic's website.


I love the concept of these bottles. Since they are reusable, I would have preferred to see the designs printed right on the bottles. I'm not sure what the cost difference would be, but I would be willing to reuse these bottles for more Dentyne gum if the designs were permanent and Dentyne sold bags of gum to refill them. Right now, I'm still going to reuse the bottles for something else, but the printed wrapper is already coming off, so I will be using a boring white bottle instead of a fun artistic one.


Thank you to Dentyne for sending us two sample bottles of Dentyne gum to base this review upon and for also providing one bottle as the prize for this contest.
