At the top of every bag of Grenades Gum, you will find what we call our BLAST FACTOR meter. Each flavor is given a rating based on the power rating; by power, we mean the intense, mint explosion you will experience when you first bite into a piece of gum. It's the brain freezing, sensory shock that will leave you blown away and your taste buds clamoring for more! It's the nose tingling, mind numbing... you get the idea.

The BLAST FACTOR meter ranges from 1 to 10; with 10 being the strongest power level available. We consider most conventional mint gum to be around a 1 or 2 on our BLAST FACTOR scale. Below is a description of the various levels and what you can expect from each. This should help you chose the one that is right for you.
