Before Orbit gum, there was Chiclets. They are a minty sugary gum that is hard to bite, then becomes rather chewy *duh*. And after 5 full minutes, the taste is completely gone. Chiclets was the coolest gum ever. I knew men who would buy beer, condoms, and Chiclets.
They even alerted women! That's right. My mom had a friend who knew when her husband was cheating on her. She would come to the house to tell my mom she had suspicions her man was being unfaithful. My mom would ask how did she know, and she'd respond, "I went through that a**hole's pockets while he was sleeping, and guess what I found? Chiclets!"
