I am seriously going nuts. I need my Must sugar free gum. They did not make any that was Kitniyus free this year. I feel like I am in withdrawal, I need gum now!!

I've been saying the same thing... apparently it wasn't imported this year. I've been devouring sugar free sucking candies instead. Hang in there. Just a few more days..

The question is, what can we do to avoid this problem next year? To whom do we write? I am not joking!

OMG you mean it's not just my local grocery????? I need gum! Seriously! I guess I'm not the only one in withdrawal. SF candies are just not the same.

Let's start a petition to the Must people. And while we're at it, let's ask for something tastier than the fairly vile banana-orange option which was the only one I could find last year.

I live in Israel and I couldn’t find it here either! I looked multiple times in multiple stores. None to be had anywhere!

no sf gum here neither (europe)

I try to reframe the situation and keep saying: maybe this pessach is the oppertunity to become FREE of my gum adddiction.

I'm with you. They are totally responsible for my cheating on my diet. I'm serious. By habit, it's what I need to do. I'm in very bad shape, you all probably think I'm nuts. I don't even chew it all day, but it gets me through a hungry spell, or if I'm anxious and want to eat.

AFAIK Gefen Foods is the distributor for Elite who makes the Must gum.
Send them a message now, while you're passionate about the missing gum. Tongue Out

From the Kedem website it looks like gefen and elite are both kedem brands. Is that true? if so maybe we should be contacting kedem? Or am I wrong about that?
I want to contact someone. I'll totally write an e-mail or message to them. I'm a gum addict who only got through "easily" this year due to gum stashed away in my pesach stuff from last year!

In Israel must gum is always labelled kitniyot. It was definitely available this year, but with a kitniyot label as usual. YMMV but my Ashkenazi rav said we could chew it, since the kitniyot in such a form is not halachikally kitniyot.

Yes Gefen is a kedem brand. I would contact gefen since they’re the ones dealing with it. Kedem is probably just the mother company and does not deal with the day to day business. (Or contact both gefen and elite. Like this your message definitely comes across.)

Another year with no Must gum. Sad So sad. I looked around but there's only bazooka which kills the teeth.
