Gum fulfills so many needs--sating hunger, freshening your breath, relieving tension. On a good day, a piece of gum will transport you to a better time and place, a long summer afternoon at the public pool, a crisp Halloween night tallying up candy with friends at the playground, the day your grandma showed you how to make a bubble. Sometimes a gum will be nothing but disappointment--a mint too sugary, a cinnamon not snappy enough.
At Gumshoe, we hope to open a dialog about chewing gum--what we all like and dislike about different gums.
On some unknown schedule, we will review a chewing gum, looking at it for taste, texture, size, packaging and price. Maybe some other things. This is a work in progress.
