Episode 78: Gum


Five out of five dentists recommend listening to this episode, because there is as of yet no known mechanism for sound waves to cause tooth decay. Unless you lie around listening to the show for days on end without brushing your teeth, in which case we and our dentists recommend sugarless gum. Which, coincidentally, is one of two subjects we cover this week. The other is sugary gum. EXPLICIT.www.spilledmilkpodcast.com


Check out this episode Oh, and here’s a link to that picture of chewed gum.

    You guys completely forgot the line of Extra Desert Delights gums! These are one of the most interesting new flavor lines to come out in recent history. Flavors are: Apple Pie (tastes amazingly just like apple pie!), Orange Creme Pop (pretty good), Mint Chocolate Chip (yum!), Strawberry Shortcake (eh…), Key Lime Pie (too tart), and Root Beer Float (yuck!).

    When I was in 7th grade, Hubba Bubba was all the rage. I can remember taking a trip to Washington DC and everyone traded Hubba Bubba on the bus. Then we shoved all the pieces in our mouths. We horrified each other with the colors that resulted. This podcast reminded me of the dangers of mixing gum. Thanks!

    haha… copyright violation! I used to chew gum everyday during college. But during exams, I’b be chewing 2-3 strips of gum at the same time. In my brains, I figured if my jaws are working, my brain would work too. I don’t know…

    Too bad about that stale piece of Bazooka. If you ever get a fresh piece, it really is good.
    My mom used to buy a whole box at the beginning of summer for all us ( lots of street urchin boys in the neighbor hood) and those first pieces were one of the joys of summer.

    Ahh! Loved listening to this podcast this morning! I couldn’t help but think of the picture book, Pop! The Invention of Bubble Gum by Megan McCarthy (2010), which is about the invention of the bubble gum flavor in the 1920s. It is a fun non-fiction book geared towards primary grades that answers many of those questions you were “ruminating” over during the episode. Big kids will learn a lot reading it, too! :)
