It's Condom Week! So we thought it'd be a good idea to conduct a taste test of our own.
Condoms are good for safety. A fact I’m sure you're all fully aware of. But I’ll admit, despite knowing it’s healthy for me to use them in oral sex as well, I tend not to. It’s the taste… I loathe the taste of latex. Of course, those of you with a latex fetish may prefer it. ;)


After a few visits to some local sex shops, I decided to conduct my own condom taste test to see if that helped. But which kinds were good? Did they taste like they claimed? If the condoms were anything like flavored lube, I wasn’t feeling super confident about my choices. I was determined to try, though, so I picked up three brands in different flavors.

 

 

What's your favorite flavor?

 

The Condom Taste Test Review

 

 

Condom taste test brand #1: Trustex

 

1. Strawberry

 

The smell of strawberries is one of my favorites. Upon first opening, I was excited. This was my first sampling and the smell was great. I caught a whiff of strawberry right away. But after the condom was in my mouth, nada. I hardly tasted any flavor at all. Mostly, I tasted latex! Needless to say, I was disappointed.
 

2. Vanilla

 

Again, I was excited. I knew the vanilla had to have decent flavor.
But I was wrong.
Hardly any taste again.
 

3. Grape

 

And this is where I tossed the rest. Again, no flavor despite clearly being labeled ‘flavored’. Sure, they smelled like grape. But no taste!
 

Overall view for the Trustex brand:

 

This brand isn’t great. These condoms were smallish and didn’t have much lubricant despite being lubricated. If you’re looking to try tasty condoms, I don’t suggest this brand if you want strong flavors.

 

 

Condom taste test brand #2 ONE

 

1. Island Punch

 

I didn’t mind this flavor. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect since Island Punch is really anything with mixed fruits, but it had scent, it had taste, though I’m not certain how to exactly ‘describe’ that taste.
Not bad, though, not my favorite.
 

2. Bubblegum

 

I was fan of the bubble gum! The smell made me feel like a teenager again. Having fun and exploring! This is a flavor I’d use again. I also didn’t notice the latex taste as much.

3. Banana Split

 

I also liked the banana split! While it still had a bit of chemical taste (I find that with any of these sorts of products), I loved the idea of banana. It too was far stronger for me, like the bubblegum, so I enjoyed this one and would use it again.
 

Overall for the ONE brand:

 

These were smaller in size again. They also had little lubrication. While I’m generally a fan of this brand, their flavored line as far as ‘fit’ went wasn’t aligned with the non-flavored variety.

 

 

Condom taste test brand #3 Fantasy

 

1. Mint

 

Had little scent, which also meant less flavor. The plus to this one is that it made my tongue tingle!
 

2. Chocolate

 

Sorta tasted like chocolate… I didn’t hate these ones, as they did have more flavor than the Trustex brand, but it didn’t taste completely like chocolate to me. It could be the fact that I’m a chocolate snob, but I was really looking forward to this flavor. I might use it again, but it would not be my first pick.
 

Overall view for the Fantasy brand:

 

They were larger than the other two, had far more lubricant (so might be better for moving from oral to intercourse), and they didn’t have flavorless flavors. I’d get this brand again.

 

 

The condom taste tests results are...

 

All three of these brands had things in common:

 


  1. Most ran small in size and even the same brand varied from flavor to flavor as far as the size went.

  2. Most had little to no lubrication as well, so if you’re planning to go from oral to vaginal intercourse, I don’t suggest using the same condom. Get a fresh one.

  3. And all, despite the label of being flavored, didn’t have as much taste as I would have liked. I’d certainly use the Bubblegum and Banana Split again, but my thoughts on most are, let’s get some real flavor!

  4.  


Something to cover that nasty taste of latex. Until then, I think I’ll stick to ONE’s Bubblegum flavor because feeling like a teenager again made my experience far more intense!
