    It Seriously Is Like An Addiction

    I've been addicted to the stuff since the age of 11, but since discovering Trident Spearmint Splash about 5 years ago (When it was called Trident Fresh, if anyone remembers that) - I'm hooked! The liquid centre is heavenly and even once the first blast is gone, the flavour still...

    Chew, Chew, Chew

    My favorite is Spearmint Orbit. If I start chewing anything like Bubble Gum, I just keep putting more and more pieces in my mouth and blowing big bubbles. I don't do it much anymore, because I know it's not that good for my teeth, but it tastes so good. Mmmmmm.....I want some...

    Can't Stop Chewing!

    My friend says if I ever have a club dedicated to me, all members must carry at least 7 different kinds of gum at all times, of which I do. People think it's weird, but, hey, I'd rather be addicted to gum than drugs or something. It's been feeling weird lately, since I have...

    Especially Once I Quit Smoking

    I have always liked chewing gum, but since I quit smoking, I find it to be more of a NEED than a WANT! As a kid, my favorite was Tiny Size Chicklets!  It was always a treat when Mom would let me pick them up in the checkout lane at the grocery store! I also loved Freshen...

    Right Now!

    As of this moment of I have a piece of cool watermellon Extra in my mouth. I've actually never had Extra before, and I must say, the flavour does last a really long time compared to other gums. I really prefer bubble gum, cause I loooove blowing bubbles. The bigger the better...

    Five Gum

    Five gum is my favorite. I feel like I just brushed my teeth whenever I chew it. I like those Blow Pop Lollipop gum but it loses taste after like five minutes. There's this teacher that told us not to chew gum, meanwhile he was chewing gum like a freakin cow.

    Not Very Often

    I've never really liked gum. I'm not sure why, but I guess I just never had it around the house, so I never knew what I was missing. Even now, when I do have gum, I hardly ever chew any. The only reason I'm chewing gum more right now is because it's a quick sugar fix for me when...

    Too Often

    I don't chew at home. Because if I let myself do that, I'd chew all day long. I chew gum when I got out, and it's like a reflex. I like to make bubble with it. I try not to do that too often, because I think myself it's gross. But I like it when I can make a really big bubble...

    I have an addiction to buying the newest flavor of Orbit. If I see it and I know I haven't tried it, I pick it up. Always. In addition to that, I usually have at least three different flavors/types of gum with me at all times. There's the prerequisite Orbit, something minty, and...

    It is a necessity to me. It is a great stress reliever. I chewed it all the time at one job I worked at. And if I was chewing it good and hard than that meant I was pretty irritated with someone..but I just took the aggression out on the poor gun! I will chew gum if I am...

    I love to chew gum for some reason I chew it all the time (even if I am in uniform).  It's one of those habits that I never got out of.

    Occasional Gum Chewer

    I only chew gum when I'm stressed out, before a deep kiss, and make-out session with a woman (wink, wink).

    I Shouldn't

    I shouldn't chew gum at all, but I still do sometimes.  I shouldn't chew it because it gives me very painful sores in my mouth.  So I try to avoid it, but sometimes I just can't resist.  And then I always regret it.

    Very Relaxing

    I Chew Gum.  Oh honey yes, I do chew gum.  I love to 'pop' or 'crack' my gum, (never in public of course) and I love to blow bubbles and suck them back into themselves. I like to have about 3 large packs of gum while watching movies and I keep adding and adding more...
