Review: MyExtra Gum

Thanks to MomSelect and Extra I recently had the opportunity to review a fun product- MyExtra Gum customized gum packs! If there's an event in your future for which you need a party favor or other customized giveaway, this is a product that you should definitely check out.

My first step in making my customized gum packs was to visit the MyExtra site and browse through the themes. They have everything there from anniversary themes to friendship themes, Father's Day themes to Halloween themes, sports themes to business themes, and much more. I selected the anniversary theme, since we recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary, and I thought it would be fun to have a little keepsake for this event.  After selecting the theme, I selected one of the anniversary templates. There are a number of templates for each theme, or you can start from a blank template.

Next I customized my template with the wording and font I wanted, played with the background color until I got just what I wanted, and uploaded my photos.  It was all very easy and the site was extremely user-friendly and simple to use. 

And here's my finished product!
Apologies for the flash distortion on the lower right-hand corner. 

I thought my gum packs turned out nicely, and we've been enjoying the gum inside too! The box is nice and sturdy, and the pictures and wording ended up looking really good.  This is a fun keepsake for us to have, and I think it would make a fun party/wedding/event favor for your guests! 

The customized gum packs do have the MyExtra logo on them, but you can choose where that is located on your design.  You can also select which of three flavors of gum that you would like for your packs, either Spearmint, Peppermint or Sweet Watermelon. These customized packs are sold in sets of five, so if you want more than one design, you will need to order more than one set of five. For 5-50 packs per design, the price per pack is $4.99 plus shipping, with decreasing prices per pack for larger orders.

For more information or to check out some design/theme ideas, visit the MyExtra site.
