    every job i've had and in school i've always been told to stop chewing gum because its rude or not allowed. the only reason ive been given for it is you cant speak to someone and chew gum but clearly i can and im annoyed because if everyone just chewed gum once in a while we'd have much more pleasant smelling conversations. are there any other valid reasons to not chew gum?

    also mints are disgusting and leave a bad taste in your mouth after swallowing

    You know what I am ****ed off about chewing gums? Is when idiots leave their chewing gums under the table or desks and when I arrive in classroom and touch something "soft" under the chair or table, turns out to be chewed chewing gum ewwww

    I used to chew gum mainly because I needed some movement in my mouth. Then I used to chew gum because in order to make my breath smell nice. But trust me theres something even better and more effective then chewing gum.
    Fruit. Mainly Apples and Oranges.
    You see chewing gum does make your breath smell nice, but only temporarily-and I mean a really short period, like Airwaves, one of the strongest chewing gums around only give you good breath whilst your chewing it and what 15mins afterwards? After that you can smell horrible breath accompanied with hints of the airwave smell and its both eye-watering and disgusting. Furthermore, chewing gum makes your mouth dry-and if you don't have a bottle of water, you're going to get bacteria buildup and bad breath real soon
    Apples and Oranges however, remove bad smelling breath, replacing it with...nothing really, maybe i slight tinge of the fruit I was eating but really nothing. It removes bad breath for a longer period of time. Plus your having one of your 5-a-day.
    You should try it-its honestly a better substitute for chewing gum, plus its healthy for you. You will notice the difference.

    Make sure you drink a tall glass of cold water after chewing your gum, it will really leave you with fresh breath!
