    You mentioned it once, so they probably do sell it there.

    I don't remember mentioning it?????? Can't remember the packaging either.

    You're off the hook, Lo! I wouldn't hold you responsible for the packaging anyway.

    Woah - somebody gave me a negative reputation for saying chewy is gross??? Wait till I really piss you off.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I used to like cinnamon flavoured gums in high school. It was just totally new to me cuz we don't have that flavour in Japan.

    But I became kinda paranoid about my teeth (sugar from the chewing gum causing cavity plus the sugarless ones still have artificial sweetener which isn't all that good for you e.g. heard it's carcenogenic somehow).


    I don't chew gum now, just some juicy fruit once in a blue moon.
    "juicy fruit it's gonna move ya!"

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    MMM gum is good. I love Bubble Yum and Ill get alot out of the bubble gum machine when I see one. I dont chew gum all the time but when I do I so enjoy it. I can say I have never thrown my gum on the ground, that is just rude.

    I love chewing gums!
    I have a packet with me 24/7 wherever I go.
    I also love making bubbles but I try not to be too tacky
    They also prevent me / stop me from being hungry, so if I get hungry at the wrong time I rely on them!

    I only eat sugarfree gums and my favourites are Vigorsol AirAction.

    I'm always chewing gum, always. I have a nervous habit of grinding my teeth and clenching my jaw and it forces me to have my jaw open at least half the time, it also helps relax me.

    God I sound like my pack of gum is a pack of cigs.

    I hate when people chew with their mouth open and play with it blowing bubbles and stuff. It does look so tacky. I have it every now and again, mainly to freshen my breath.

    I read in a magazine once on an article about keeping a flat stomach that whilst chewing gum you gulp down quite a bit of air so it makes you look bloated?? I didn't believe it though

    I heard something like this too, it has also something to do with the acids your stomach produces when you chew something because it "thinks" there's food coming.

    I go through spells. Sometimes I chew it all day, everyday. Sometimes once or twice a week. I do keep it with me for the breath thing, though. I chew Big Red...they say it is the best to help with bad breath....cause of the cinnamon flavor...
    There is a right and a wrong way to chew gum, like most other things...if you do it the right way it is not even noticeable...
    My sister and I have this same crazy habit-we get a pack of Rainblow gum balls and eat the entire package!! We either swallow it or spit it out...I know that it isn't good for you....I remember the first time hubby found out I did that! I bought 2 packs and about an hour later he asked for a piece. I had to tell him I didn't have any. He wanted to know what happened to two packs of gum....I had to tell him my horrible secret! He just looked at me like I had a third eye and said 0 K...
    Just found out that even chewing gum helps you burn calories...CHEW CHEW CHEW your way thin!!!!
    THE EASIEST WAY OUT IS THROUGH....

    I like it for making me less hungry/whitening my teeth, but I hate the sound of other people chewing gum, so at risk of being a hypocrite, I rarely chew it, so con here.
