Twister Flavor by Tumi Magic (purchased from Bob Solari). I'm always looking for something to carry around, ready to perform on a moment's notice - and this really fits the bill. A normal looking box of Trident gum is instantly changed into two packs of chewing gum, that look like Juicy Fruit and Doublemint. The transformation is lightning fast and looks like real magic. The trick can be instantly reversed, changing the two packs back into the Trident box, but I have never done this. It makes sense to pull out a box of Trident and do the magic, I don't know why anyone would pull out two different packs of gum and then do the trick (but that's just me). The box is well made from a cardboard material, thin but stiff. It can't be examined, but that hasn't been a problem, as I just stick the packs back into my pocket as they stand there wide-eyed. Then I start a different trick. The prop should last a long time if taken care of, but you can't put them anywhere they might get crushed. Think of them as two packs of gum reinforced with cardboard from a new shirt. There is a Youtube download for the instructions, which I found somewhat helpful. However, once you get the prop, you can figure out your own moves and transformations. It's about $10 overpriced (IMO), but does come complete and ready to work right out of the box. I've found that a lot of new tricks on the market require you to put something together or assemble the whole thing - not this one, you'll be doing it 30 minutes after you take it out. I have never actually put gum in the packs, but there's no reason you couldn't, and then offer a piece to your spectator. This is something I'll be carrying in my shirt pocket for a long time. I'll give it 4 out of 5 stars, subtracting one star because I'm not sure how it will hold up over time.

Twister Flavor - I've been doing this almost every day for the past 8 months. I carry it on me at all times. The box has gotten so flimsy that it's hard to perform. However, I like this effect enough that I'm going to buy another one. On my new one I will glue the box tabs shut - this means you can't remove any small pieces of gum, but that's really not necessary for the trick (IMO). I will also glue (4) small pieces of matchstick in a criss-cross pattern in the open ends to get it strength and keep the box from collapsing. We'll set how it goes. Buy this one - you will like it.
