Don’t Mess with My Chewing Gum

Before I got all old and stuff, chewing gum was my currency. I could be paid in sticks, cubes, tape, or even the shredded stuff would do. As an adult I still love chewing gum. It helps me focus, curbs my appetite, and even keeps my smile bright. This post includes sponsored content from Trident but all thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

Trident is my Favorite Chewing Gum

Did you know chewing Trident for 20 minutes after eating and drinking helps to clean and protect teeth? Of course you’re also supposed to brush twice a day for 2 minutes, floss, and visit your dentist every 6 months. But when you’re at school, stuck in the car, or at the office without a toothbrush or sink, chewing a fresh stick of minty chewing gum can be totally refreshing. The fact that it’s also good for your teeth is a huge bonus. Plus, four out of five dentists surveyed would recommend Trident to their patients.

I scare my friends via Snapchat on the regular. I’m a great friend like that.

Personally, I always made it a point to chew minty gum while taking tests. I vaguely remember hearing that they had done studies on this and found that mint helps you concentrate. It totally helped me. My kids also stock up on mint chewing gum during test season. I also keep a jar by our homework station. It’s a fun little reward to enjoy while getting your work done.

If you’re not a fan of mint, there are also great fruit flavors like Tropical Twist. When I’m trying to avoid eating too many sweets, a stick of fruity gum helps quench that craving.

My favorite chewing gum flavor is Dentyne gum. As I was growing up my grandmother always had at least 1 pack in her purse and passing pieces out to the kiddos at church. I'm glad to see that Trident is helping support Smiles Across America by donating proceeds of their profits.

I am not a chewing gum person, so I don't have a favorite flavor. Smiles Across America does sound like a great cause. Thank you for sharing this post.

Hmm I think my favorite is probably the good old bazooka flavor. I dont know what flavor you would call it, but I like it.

ha! that's so funny about chewing gum as currency. Thinking back on it, that's totally what it's like as a kid. I was all about the bubbletape. Nowadays I usually stick with cinnamon gum
