What type of gum do you like? How often are you found chewing on a piece? Do you buy the strips or the other type where you push them out of the package?

I can sometimes be found chewing one of the spearmint flavored pieces of gum. I go through one or so every other day if I have some, hhough once I finish off a package I always forget to buy more.

I used to like spearmint gum or chicklets (back when they made chicklets) but I've stopped chewing gum. I sort of.. grew out of it and I dislike chewing it now.

I absolutely love the juicy fruit chewing gum or airwaves cool mint. I don't buy it that often, but it does take my mind off of things.

I don't chew gum. But if I would, it'll be bubblegum.

I like any gum that tastes like watermelon. Prism 5 is the best, even though it doesn't exactly stimulate my senses haha. I'll chew like a piece a day, assuming I actually have any gum.

I usually prefer mint gum. I usually like the type you pop out of a package or the kind that comes in a little box. Im not really a constant gum chewer, though I enjoy it sometimes, but I dont really buy it that often.

I actually forgot those existed. They were so good.

I usually get Orange Creamsicle flavored-gum, but even that doesn't happen often.

I don't really get gum anymore, but I like any type of gum. If I'm faced with the decision of picking one out at the store, I usually go for spearmint/mints or fruity flavors of gum. It really depends on how I'm feeling at that exact moment.

And since we're on the topic of gum, I swallow gum. I can't help it. I chew it and then I swallow little bits of it that I break off from the glob one by one until there's none left. And that usually happens before the gum gets real soft and starts to lose it's flavor.

I really love chewing on Trident, the ones that have fruit flavored I prefer first. I also like the one with two flavors, I can't remember the name (it also was on the commercials about being payed in gum) edit: Its called "Trident Layers"

I usually chew it the most while driving, and usually spit it out when I arrive at my destination

I don't chew gum. :T
I haven't since I was a kid, honestly. But I don't really miss it or anything. It almost always has weird ingredients (artificial colors, flavors, etc.) which I have allergies to. D:

I chew gum everyday. I dont feel right if I am not chewing it during class or while driving. Basically If I am not eating or sleeping I am chewing gum. I really like all kinds but Stride is my favorite, as I prefer mint gum, but if it is fruity I like Watermelon or strawberry.

I love any fruit-flavored gum cos mint flavors are always too harsh on my mouth.

I still love chewing gum when I can't get any access to food for a while.

I almost always have a pack of gum on me, usually the brand 5 Gum. I don't much link mint flavors apart from Spearmint, though.

Peppermint, and peppermint only; imo, spearmint sucks and so does fruit-flavored gum. These days I think it's... Trident White? I know the package on sight. The one I liked to get looks like it got discontinued because I haven't seen it anywhere. :(

(Unless it's bubble gum, in which case, I'll have sour fruit sometimes. Haven't in years, though.)

I love 5Gum. They have tons of flavours that are so intense...yum. Plus, the flavour doesn't run out really quick like Juicy Fruit for example. I don't chew gum all the time, but if I got offered some I'd certainly accept. XD

I don't chew gum anymore, but I used to when I was a kid. I'm not sure if it's a worldwide thing or just an Australia thing, but here we have this brand called "Hubba Bubba". It is awesome.

I only ever have the grape and strawberry flavours. I've had cola once or twice and that's good too, but grape and strawberry are classics!

I have a deep hatred for all types of gum except for mint gum.
I can chew mint gum for about 10 minutes and then I have to spit it out. I also like gumballs, but fruit gum and the other kinds are gross.

I used to chew gum daily, but I got tired of losing the flavor and moving my jaw up and down all the time in order to freshen my breath. Now what I use is mints such as Altoids and Ice Breakers because they are stronger than the gum I usually chewed and it just sits in my mouth. The last time I chewed gum was probably at the beginning of this year and this was because I was teaching my niece how to blow a bubble; the flavor was strawberry gum.

I only really chew gum when my housemate offers me some. He only buys the Orbit brand of gum, which is kinda minty... but that's all I know about it. Even when I was younger, I wasn't a big chewer. I have no real objection to it, but it never struck me as something that I craved or really desired to do, for whatever reason.

I almost never chew gum, I don't even know what brands there really are.

But, I can tell you one thing I loathe about gum, when you pop a piece in your mouth and within a couple minutes it becomes this liquefied nauseating substance that's impossible to chew on u_u

I guess if I had to pick an ideal gum it'd be spearmint, firm to chew on, and would hold the flavor for a long time.

I don't chew gum all that often, but I generally prefer the fruity flavors (and cinnamon) over mint flavored gum. I also prefer the stick gum to the hard, packaged gum, as I find you can't blow bubbles as well with that stuff.
