Here's a nice forum to discuss gum!

Juicy Fruit is good. I really like Dubbl-Bubble. Bazooka is great for baseball games.

I love blowing bubbles then sucking them back into my mouth and chewing them some more. I love the little *pop* they make when you blow a small bubble, then pull it back into your mouth and crunch it some more.

Yeah! And I like Chiclets, the spearmint ones, especially! I'm not that fond of the cinnamon gum, but some gum is better than no gum at all.

Oh, and anonymous gum is the kind scraped from under the bleachers at the ballpark. No lie, you went eat um, no?!

Do you like gum? :D

Back in the days when I did chew gum, Dentyne was definitely my favorite.

I like that Japanese brand. Forget the name. It comes in a box, each piece individually wrapped in a red label with a cartoon character on it. Has this kind of "weird in a good way" chemical strawberry flavor. :p

Used to chew CASES of the stuff in little league. Good thing I had regular dental check-ups! :D

Gum chewing is a nasty habit and besides it would cut into my smoking time.

I love smoking. I hate how breathing time cuts into my smoking time.

Shucks! Missed that one... that and the Kanebo and the cute chemical strawberry Japanese one. And I forgot Fleer!

And how about that plastic-hard stick that comes in a pack of Topps or Fleer baseball cards? Have you ever tried to chew that stuff? Interesting.

Anybody ever step on used gum? Yuck. I hate that. Nothing like anonymous gum stuck on the ground and you stepping on it with a rubba slippa. Then the stringy strands flick up and over the side of your slippa, get all over your feet, too. Yuck.

What, no Big Red? :p Guess I'll go with Wrigley Spearmint.

I'm not really a gum chewer, but for some reason, I've developed the habit of popping a couple of pieces of some kind of cinnamon-esque gum (currently Dentyne from Costco!) for the long drive from town to Mililani. Helps keep me focused, and helps tame the growling stomach!

I enjoy gum once in a great while, but I don't chew it regularly. Long ago I used to like Blueberry gum from Japan.

Where's the cinnamon Big Red? Or the Cinnaburst?

Modification: sorry--guess I just read the poll choices and automatically reacted without reading everybody else's comments. See how emotional I get when my gum gets left out? ;) I'll try to get over it now...sob...but it will be difficult...I feel so abandoned...I'll go find my Big Red gum now...sniff...

Never chewed it. Wasn't allowed to when I was growing up. Now I have a difficult time respecting people who talk with gum in their mouths. It's a bit distracting. Also, I don't understand what people do with gum when they are through with it. Isn't it on the Mall in Washington DC where someone has a full-time job scraping gum from the public places? Why stick it under desks, seats, etc? I see no point in gum EXCEPT FOR CHICKLETS ON HT!

I think there was a small study (don't know how good a study it was) suggesting that chewing sugarless gum increses your saliva enough to help alleviate the symptoms of GERD.

Finally had a chance to stop by Marukai and pick up some of that "Weird-in-a-good way" chemical-strawberry flavored Japanese gum.

It's called FUSEN BUBBLE GUM by Marukawa Conf. Co.. A whole box costs about $3.00. I just bought a few pieces to refresh my memory.

Forgot about the water ink tatoo transfers on the inside of the wrapper.

Funny how things never taste the same as an adult as it did small keed time.

Thanks for the update on Fusen Bubble Gum! Sometimes childhood memories are better than the real thing.

So how about a "review"? Please post your impressions of Arm & Hammer Dental Care Gum! A star rating would be helpful... you know.. 1-5 stars, waht it tastes like, consistency of the gum, staying power of the taste, bubble potential, etc. Should be interesting!

Flavor I tend to choose is Wintergreen, flavor doesn't last that long, I tend to chew two peices at a time, not meant to blow bubbles, initially crunchy but gets soft in about 15 to 20 seconds.
