Thrills is a Canadian brand of chewing gum. It was originally produced by the O-Pee-Chee company of London, Ontario, Canada which was subsequently bought by Nestle in the late 1980s. It is well known for its purple colour and its distinctive floral rosewater flavor. [1] Comparisons of its flavor to soap are so prevalent that recent packaging states "IT STILL TASTES LIKE SOAP!".

Thrills once came in a paper envelope or blister pack, but now come in a cardboard package similar to a Chiclets box. It is now made in Spain for Tootsie Roll Industries [2] . There are ten pieces of gum in each package and each package has the dimensions of 22 x 9.8 x 4.7 cm.

Many, but not all, of these flavors are fruit-based. In addition, Hubba Bubba products have branched out, and also include flavors of soda, bubble gum and squeeze pouches.
