What's your favorite chewing gum?

  • i

Gum chewers, you have a favorite brand of chewing gum?

I'm partial to Trident Bubble Gum and Dentyne Cinammon Ice.

And you?

  1. For my everyday, it is Orbit.

    For special occasions, Teaberry

      That's awesome, never heard of a special occasion for gum!

      Might I inquire what would constitute a "special occasion"?

      1. re: ipse dixit

        I can never find it anymore so when I happen to run into it, I save it.

        I know. Weird.

        But the taste of Teaberry (even if it only lasts for 2 minutes) reminds me of the times my Grandmother would take me shopping and as a treat she would let me buy one pack of gum. She loved BlackJack (I didn't then but love it now) and I always got Teaberry.

        For any day it's Orbit Wintermint or Trident Tropical Twist.

        I have a pack of Teaberry in my chewing gum box that I've been saving. Could I have been saving it for a special occasion? I have loved that gum for most of my life. My mother loved Juicy Fruit or Double Mint and could not understand what I saw in Teaberry.

        1. For now, Orbit -- I love the new flavor: Sweet Mint

            I love that new flavor; it reminds me of those soft after dinner mints.

              pace yourself. i seriously OD-ed on Sweet Mint and now I can't touch the stuff.

            2. Orbit Peppermint.

              1. Used to be a big gum chewer. My favorite was peppermint Chicklets. Also liked Beeman's and Black Jack which are back in limited supply. Found interesting flavors in other countries too: menthol Dentyne in England, many eclectic flavors in Japan and more. I lost my taste for it.

                1. I haven't chewed gum in ages (ever since it kept getting stuck in my braces, along with Jujubees and Jujy Fruits [grin]) but on occasion, to freshen the breath, I'll pop an Eclipse Peppermint.

                    "Jujubees and Jujy Fruits"
                    Candy of the Gods!, dentists' favorite too.

                      I once pulled a filling out with a wad of Jujubees. Let's just say Mom wouldn't let me buy them anymore. :-/
