Chiclets: the Flavor-Coated Gum

Why? Why would you do that? That's not even good advertising. "Why don't they just make CANDY? I'm sure it's easier to produce!" my brother shouts from behind me whilst popping in ten more of the three-second-flavor monstrosities. You just end up with a wad of flavorless gum in your mouth.

Now, I'm sure there are benefits to making such a product. Perhaps they did this because you run out of gum too quickly to have gotten all the flavor you wanted out of that colorful box, and so you have to run to the store and buy six more, just to get the sufficient enough period of time during which you actually taste some fruit in your mouth. Or maybe they just were so excited that they learned how to make gum, that they didn't want to ruin it by accident when attempting to add flavor.

Or maybe it was just some elaborate joke that the country accepted as a fabulous pass-time. Let's pop Chiclets in our mouths until we can't fit any more because we thought that maybe, JUST MAYBE, the more of a certain color we put in our mouths, the longer the flavor will last.

Well, that's not the case. It's just a bad candy.

Why? Why would you EVER?
(Note: I said that without even thinking of the title of this blog.)

I'm so delighted that you have something to say! Or maybe you don't have something to say. That's okay too. I understand.
