FLR 014: Chewing Gum – What Has Happened to Juicy Fruit?

May 1, 2017

In this episode, I’m going to delve deeply into chewing gum, taking you places you probably don’t even want to go to … answering such questions as “Who the heck started chewing gum?”; “When did it become an industry?”; “Who are the major players in that industry?”; “What are the major components in gum?”; “What’s the connection between automobile tires and chewing gum?”; “Why did I stop chewing gum around 2002 and didn’t return until 2 years ago?”; and, as usual, “What are the ingredients in chewing gum, in particular, my old-time favorite Juicy Fruit and the gum that I chew today?”  This is not a journey that is likely going to change your life, but, hopefully, it will be fun and entertaining and maybe a little bit eye-opening.
