Yes, I Chew! What About You?

As most of you know, I still play a lot of sports. For me it is a time to relax a little bit and clear my mind from my day job. Last night I played softball and as usual had to make sure I had everything I needed for the game. Cleats, glove, batting glove, bat. Check. Got them all.

I also need to check to see if I have gum…Yes…gum! For me I think I would rather play a game without a glove than without gum. I love chewing gum when I am playing sports. For me it is part of the uniform, part of the game for sure. When I play sports, I really like Super Bubble or Double Bubble. They make nice bubbles and I like the taste.

During the course of a day (not in a meeting) I will chew Wrigley’s Big Red. I love the cinnamon taste and Big Red really does it for me.

Here are a few facts you might not known about chewing gum:

  • Chewing gum aids in appetite control
  • For some people, chewing gum relieves stress
  • Chewing gum burns eleven calories an hour
  • In the early 1900’s, William Wrigley Jr. was one of the first to promote the sale of branded goods through advertising. Wrigley’s new spearmint gum quickly became a best seller.
  • Cinnamon, spearmint and peppermint are among the most popular flavors of chewing gum today.
  • 100,000 tons of bubble gum are chewed every year
  • The average American chews over 300 sticks of gum each year.
  • Over $2 billion of gum is sold in the United States each year.
  • Dried chewing gum can be removed from hair using peanut butter

What about you:

  • Do you chew gum?
  • What’s your favorite flavor?
  • Does it help you relieve stress?

Interestingly I have always been brand loyal. I think I have been chewing Wrigley’s Big Red as far back as I can remember.

I am curious if most people are brand loyal as well.

I look forward to reading your comments.

Kiss a little longer...
