Our Story

Our founder, Marie, an avid gum chewer started Honest Gum in 2014 after she discovered that conventional chewing gum was made of a plastic gum base and laced with all sorts of artificial ingredients. Knowing that there must have been a better alternative, Marie went on a hunt to find a natural chewing gum and found there wasn't anything available on the Australian market. From this discovery, Honest Gum was born.

At Honest Gum, we make our chewing gum the traditional way using natural chicle, a sustainable harvested natural sap from the Mexican sapodilla tree. This means our gum has NO nasties, No artificial colours, NO artificial flavours, NO artificial preservatives and NO petrochemical bases (aka plastics).

Did you know?

Most conventional chewing gums list ‘gum base’ as one of their ingredients, masking the fact that petroleum, polyethylene, polyvinyl acetate, petroleum wax and stearic acid may be among the components. Not to mention the potentially harmful synthetic sweeteners such as aspartame or sorbitol.

That’s why at Honest Gum, our main focus is having a plastic free gum base. Our chewing gum is made with premium natural ingredients and the taste is amazing – it’s even sugar-free. It will keep your mouth fresh and give you something to munch on in between meals.
