Brand History

In 1984, Wrigley launched EXTRA® Gum in the U.S. and Canada as the company’s first taste-sustaining, sugar-free brand. At the time, it was one of the first gum brands to use high-intensity sweeteners, giving the brand long-lasting flavor. The first flavors of EXTRA® Gum included Spearmint and Peppermint.

Today, the EXTRA® Gum “Give Extra, Get Extra” campaign is rooted in the insight that sharing something small, like a stick of gum, can create a connection. Through its award-winning campaign, EXTRA® Gum is the gum brand that plays into the emotional benefits of chewing gum, and is all about bringing people together.
