I borrowed a piece of Wrigley's Flare gum from a coworker today.
Ok, not technically "borrowed" as in I'll give it back when I'm done but borrowed as in hey... borrow me a piece of gum eh?
If you go to their website you can watch some YouTubes about this and their two other "5" gum products where they claim that Flare is "the cinnamon that warms as you chew."
Well, they couldn't be more right. Not only does it feel like it gets hotter the longer you chew it, but it actually gets so unnaturally spicy (for a gum) that it eventually turns into that novelty pepper gum you used to be able to buy in the back of Boy's Life Magazine. In fact, you can still buy something similar today right here!
Not to dis Wrigley of course because I'm sure there are gobs of people who like stuff like this. But me?... eh, not so much.
Anyway, after I had chewed it for about 10 minutes I walked up to my coworker's desk and quietly put it back in her drawer.
Heh... it turns out I actually did borrow this gum after all.
