Topic: Favorite Kinds of Chewing Gum
Message: Posted by: Jordini (Oct 4, 2005 08:00PM)
I'm a HUGE Orbit fan. I buy almost every flavor of Orbit by the boxfull at Costco. I'm very fond of their Cinnamint, Wintermint, and Bubblemint. In fact for a while, bubblemint was my favorite. They recently also came out with sweet mint, which is very nice.

ONCE IN A WHILE however, a flavor of gum comes out that is SO fantastic, it deserves some sort of an award. I'm talking about CITRUSMINT.

This new flavor of Orbit is SO delicious...I don't know what to say, I just don't, it's fabulous.

To prove that I'm not a spokesperson for Orbit, there are a few other non orbit gums I like. (I actually DON'T Chew Orbit White gum, I don't like that style)

Green Apple by Wrigleys. This stuff is amazing. I bought 17 packs from Walgreens once because I love it so much.

I'm also a big big fan of Big League Chew, which I haven't seen in a long time. I need to find some, that stuff was great. Bubbleicious was also a favorite of mine as a kid, not to mention Zebra Gum (which I don't find to be quite as appealing since I've grown up).

What are your favorite types of Gum? Or am I just crazy and totally obsessed?

Lmao.

You are most definitely obsessed. I don't care too much for gum but I like orbit too. Big League Chew is good but it makes me really sick. Maybe its because I take down the whole bag in a few hours. *shrug*

Actually, I like the grape flavor of the Bubble Tape (often found next to Big Leage Chew). My kids usually get the Tape, but I end up chewing it all. Another thing I like is the Trident Citrus flavor. I prefer the bubble gums but will also chew Big Red if I need something different than bubble gum.

Does anyone know if the calories per stick of gum is if you EAT the gum...Or just chew it? And if its chewing...How long do you have to chew it?

that's always bothered me.

I never heard of any of these gums, but I like Hubba Bubba and Bubbleisous, or whatever it is. Trident spearmint is good too!

Does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bed post overnight,if your mother says don,t chew it do you swallow in spite,if you catch it on your tonsils do you heave it left and right, oy oy,does you chewing gum lose its flavour on the bed post overnight, to think those words (song) made lonnie donegan (famous singer in uk) very rich 40 years ago.

"Does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bed post overnight,
If you put it on the left side will you find it on the right"

That line always cracks me up.

Fav gum? Double Bubble. Chewed 59 pieces at the same time to win a contest in High School.

We don't get any gums in Singapore except for dental purpose. Gum was banned in Singapore for many years until recently. To buy chewing gum in Singapore, we need to go to a pharmacy, produce our ID in order to buy it.

Dude, it was a joke from my generation, before there were many, let's say... concerns. Favorite gum?? Couldn't say... I gave it up when I got braces as a teenager. I guess I could say something about locking braces but I keep forgetting that this room has been sterilized.

Heavens! I'd forgotten Fruit Stripes but as soon as I saw your post the flavor of that almost fruity chemistry experiment came rushing back! I also remember (maybe wrongly) that there was a pastel zebra as it's cartoon spokesman. Er, spokeszebra.

Thanks for that one!

THAT was the name of it. I used to call it zebra gum (I reffered to it in my first post as you may see).

Fruit Stripes....loved it! I also still like the Tiny Chiclets....not the "regular sized" ones, but the tiny ones....that give you about one or two good "chews" in a package.
