Practice Safe Breath Everywhere With Dentyne’s New Split2Fit Pack & a Giveaway


The moment is close.  You’re feeling great.  You know he’s about to lean in for a kiss.  You’re ready.  Your outfit looks spectacular, your hair is gently cascading over your face.  The moment is perfection.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!  You forget to check your breath!  As you suddenly remember the onions on the sandwich you had for lunch, it is clearly time to get out of here!

Has this happened to you?  Doesn’t it happen to all of us at some point?  I know I have been guilty of suddenly discovering my breath smells less than roses.  My husband is chivalrous and kind, but I’d rather not become a fiery stinky breathing dragon right before his eyes:)

Dentyne is hoping to inform young Americans on safe breath by disclosing some recent survey results.

The Safe Breath Survey examines the risks that 18 to 34-year-olds are taking with their breath, how preparedness factors into a successful social encounter and the rules of attraction when it comes to dating and breath.  (I want to state that I am officially still a young American- woo hoo!)

  • 53% of Americans ages 18 to 34 have had an “intimate moment” cut short because they were unprepared. While granny panties or white briefs can be a mood-killer, 76% say bad breath would be a more embarrassing end to an “intimate moment” than unflattering underwear.
  • There are some things you can look past and still have a good date, such as sweaty palms (50%) or wrinkled clothes (47%). However, try to avoid the garlic mashed potatoes at dinner: 86% of those polled could not disregard bad breath on a first date.
  • Feeling good in your new pair of designer jeans? No matter what you’re wearing, 71% feel less confident meeting someone of the opposite sex if their breath isn’t fresh.
  • 58% have lost interest in someone they were attracted to due to bad breath. And that’s no smooching secret; charm alone can only get you so far – 48% of women 18 to 34 would end a relationship with someone with consistently bad breath.
  • The truth hurts, and most aren’t ready to tell it to you straight – especially when it comes to breath blunders. 85% of people think it would be harder to tell someone they have bad breath than tell them their zipper’s down.
  • Skinny jeans definitely have their drawbacks. 78% have sacrificed essentials during a night out to avoid carrying them, and nearly 1 in 4 (23%) have left gum at home because they didn’t want to carry it – a rookie mistake.

Fear not – Dentyne has the fix. With the introduction of the NEW Dentyne Split2Fit Pack you no longer have to make this sacrifice. The Dentyne Split2Fit pack is an innovative, versatile and sleek package that holds 33 percent more gum than before (16 vs. 12 pieces) and can be split into two smaller, sleeker and easier-to-carry packs.  Now you can carry all sixteen (16) pieces at once, or, if space is limited, you can split the pack into two smaller halves that are easier to slip in to close-fitting places like a shirt pocket, a clutch or those skinny jeans!  In addition, Dentyne has launched a new flavor, Dentyne Ice Mint Frost, bringing a fresh new taste to the Dentyne lineup of intense breath freshening gums.

It’s true – Dentyne’s Split2Fit pack fits almost anywhere.  From a banana hammock to those skinny jeans, the new slim & trim pack ensures that you’re always fresh no matter where you are.

Check out these tongue-in-cheek videos on the subject:) They are hilarious!



In concern for safe breath everywhere Dentyne has kindly offered one lucky Mama Report reader 2 boxes of gum (consisting of 9 gum packs) of the new Split2Fit.
