  • Improved flavor of nicotine gum does not increase abuse liability, but may be associated with enhanced craving reduction.
  • mint-flavored nicotine gum was rated as more palatable than the original nicotine gum, but the improvement in flavor did not increase abuse liability in adults (22 – 50 years old) or young adults (18 –21 years old). Since the aversive taste of the original nicotine gum was an important impediment to compliance (Rose, 1996) and treatment initiation, the availability of nicotine gum in different flavors and the development of alternative oral nicotine replacement products with appealing flavors may improve compliance and expand the range of options for those attempting to quit smoking, without posing an increased risk of abuse.
