Peppersmith launches the first chewing gum made with fine Black Mitcham peppermint, homegrown on a farm in Hampshire. This quality gum contains no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives and no aspartame.

What’s more, the gum is sweetened with wood sugar otherwise known as xylitol (‘xyl’ is Greek for wood – think xylophone).
