Subject: Chewing Gum

Written By: whistledog on 02/19/07 at 9:49 pm

What kind of Chewing Gum do you like best?

I love Strawberry Hubba Bubba and Wrigley's Big Red, but my all-time favourite are Thrills.  I used to get them all the time for Halloween, and cringed every time, but over the years, I got used to the soap taste, and now I get a few packs whenever I see them in stores

I usually chew Extra Polar Ice, or Altoids gum, but my heart will always and forever belong to Fruit Stripe.

I used to love Fruit Stripe gum, haven't had it in ages...need to find some.


I like peppermint gum, Ice Breakers being my favorite.  If I chew bubble gum it has to be Bazooka.

I've never known anyone in my life who didn't like gum as a kid.  You're truly unique Missy!

I usually get those whitening gums (I usually just grab whatever). I usually chew it when I have to be close to someone (like the chiropractor or hair dresser). I don't want to "offend" anyone.

My favourite kinds of chewing gum are Wrigley's Extra and Orbit. Trident was recently introduced to the UK, but I haven't tried it yet. I usually keep a packet of chewing gum in my handbag and I tend to chew it when I want fresh breath.

I like classic Dentyne. The old red pack of the individually wrapped pieces of gum, not the new pop out of the plastic type. the old style. hard to find, but they sell it here at the general store at work.  When I was young, I had a total of 26 pieces in my mouth at one time.  I had several packs and just kept loading up to see how many i could chew. the cinnamon numbed my mouth, and the wad of chewing gum was huge  ;D

Orbit Sweet Mint

You and me Girl!
This is my favorite gum now.
I used to only chew dentyne ice but not anymore!!!

My mom always made a point of us girls having gum to chew - although it has always been sugarless and never bubblegum.
The dentist told her that chewing gum is good for your gums, helps aid in digestion and any sort of mastication is good for the teeth as well.
And like the commercial says ..."if you can't brush your teeth after eating Chew On This"... although it's a trident commercial I think! ;) ;D

I've tried two flavours of Trident Gum; Tropical Twist and Strawberry & Lime. One advert for the gum that featured a black man on stage and on a boat received lots of complaints because people believed that he was mocking the Jamaican accent.

I was never a big fan of gum. The flavor only lasts for 5 or 10 minutes and people look funny chewing! http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/08/redblob.gif

I have always hated the taste of bubble gum. When I was little I only liked chewing gum that tasted like sugar.  I've gotton so many discusting and strange dreams about gum that I don't want any.
