i tried juicy fruit recently and it was atrocious and totally diffrent from what i remembered as a kid. does wrigley still make and market it. it was more like trident than traditional chewing gum.

        Really? May I ask why?

        There are actually good reasons to chew gum, at last the sugarless variety. http://worldental.org/gums/benefit-of...

          The sound it makes. Ugh.

          I think going to McDonald's too often is a nasty habit but I don't go into the "chain" category and berate every poster who asks a question about McD's. I have my own bad habits.

          I'd much rather smell someone's "nasty" chewing gum than smell bad breath.
