I have a house rule that no one chews gum until they reach the age of 5. As the twins' fifth birthday approached, they grew more and more excited about the day that they would finally be allowed to chew gum. And then one day, something magical happened. A huge box showed up at the house, FULL of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit gum! I pulled out package after package of gum, while Pierce quickly calculated on his watch how many total pieces of gum we had (380).
What did we do with all this gum? Why we took it outside to enjoy the final days of summer as a family, and chewed to our hearts' content. Some of us even wore our never-to-be-removed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume.
That's his big happy face, with a marvelous Juicy Fruit strawberry bubble gum smile.
Pierce decided to learn how to blow bubbles. It took some practice, but hey, we had lots of gum for practice. It turned out that Juicy Fruit was the perfect gum for bubble blowing. After a couple of pieces, Pierce had it down. He said, "Mom, this is the best gum for learning to blow bubbles EVER!"
Sitting on the porch swing, practicing their bubbles. It turned out that Juicy Fruit offered a great brotherly bonding experience. The twins haven't gotten their bubble blowing down quite yet, but they keep trying, while Pierce encourages them.
Meanwhile, Paul headed off to mow the yard with a piece of Juicy Fruit bubble gum himself. Later, he reported to me that this was the best bubble blowing gum he'd had since he was a kid. He reported that he was blowing huge bubbles while mowing the acreage, and it made the time more fun.
My favorite was the sugar-free Fruity Chews strawberry (just introduced last month). It has great flavor, and good longevity. Now the only question that remains is......how long does it take for 3 little boys to go through 380 pieces of Juicy Fruit gum?
Readers, are you gum chewers too? Would you like to try Wrigley's Juicy Fruit?
