A Taste of Home in Every Bite

Nude Photo Shoot with GumFor those of you who are keeping up, researching the new guy here, and cyber stalking me, you already know that I once took a trip to Thailand to become a Buddhist monk. It was a heck of an exciting trip to take for many reasons. However, it was not all fun and games, not that you likely expect a lot of fun and games in a Buddhist monastery. I experienced a good bit of loneliness and culture shock there, even though I was among friends and knew a good bit about the culture I was in.

Something that helped me out was chewing gum. No, I am not making this up. I had gum for my plane ride and took to having some from time to time as a reminder of home. It was easy to find in the country, as almost every town had a 7-11, Lotte, or other convenience store. It reminded me of where I came from and gave me a little taste of home, something to savor among the sing-song syllables of a foreign land. It grounded me and made me feel a bit less lost during my stay.

Have you ever had a particular taste that reminded you of home?

When you are passing by a row of 25 cent machines you can almost always guarantee that Cadbury Adams’ Chiclets chewing gum will be among the candies that lie within them.

When the decision of what candy to spend your sole quarter on proves difficult, don’t think twice before putting it in the little slot for the Chiclets. With Chiclets you get the flavor variety of any other candy with the long lasting duration of any gum.

These classic, flavor filled gum squares were the first candy-coated chewing gum, first introduced in peppermint flavor in 1906. Frank H. Fleer took the idea of the candy coated Jordan almond and applied it to chewing gum and the Chiclets have thrived in every generation since the early 1900s.

Chiclets chewing gum is known all around the world, but is especially popular in the Middle East. Here in the United States Chiclets can be found in their original peppermint packaging or in various other flavor packed colors including orange, red, yellow, blue, green, and pink.

As great as each individual flavor tastes, taking a small handful of multiple flavors always proves enjoyable even if you don’t think cinnamon, banana, and orange blend well together.

Chiclets are the perfect gum because you can easily monitor the size of the gum you will be chewing. You can dump a handful into your mouth and have a double-bubble-like mouthful or gum or you can just chew one square to get the smell of lunch off of your breath before your meeting or job interview. Whatever the reason, Chiclets chewing gum won’t disappoint.
