    from would more closely imply where the gum was purchased, rather than who made it. My usual wording would be "... cluttered with Doublemint wrappers."

    It might be either, but the issue is avoided by The corner was cluttered with Doublemint wrappers.

    You don't need either word.

    The corner was cluttered with Doublemint wrappers.

    I would re-phrase without either preposition: "The corner was cluttered with Doublemint wrappers" But "from" is the better choice over 'of'

    Neither is really correct. You'd say doublemint wrappers. Its a much simplier and neater turn of phrase.

    From, though you’d also need to pluralise the doublemint, but the word is unnecessary as you should say.. cluttered with Doublemint wrappers.

    If you mean the empty wrappers that Doublemint came in, you would normally say "cluttered with Doublemint wrappers". If the Doublemint was still in the wrappers, you would say "cluttered with wrappers of Doublemint".

      Surely, if the Doublement was still in wrappers, you'd say 'cluttered with Doublements' or 'packs of Doublemint'?

    You'd use "from", but why not simply say "the corner was cluttered with Doublemint wrappers"?
