Hollywood Chewing Gum
Hollywood Chewing Gum is a brand of chewing gum, belonging to the group Cadbury plc. The brand Hollywood was created in 1952 by Courtland E. Parfet, an American who took part in the Invasion of Normandy in 1944. The first published advertisement for the brand was in 1958, and the first television advertisement was in 1968. The slogan Fraîcheur de vivre ("Refresher of life") was invented in 1972 by Jean Verrechia, based on the concepts of youth, freedom and freshness. In 1986, a sugar-free variation called Hollywood Light was launched, followed by Hollywood Blancheur ("Hollywood Whitener") in 2001.

Dekopon is a seedless and very sweet citrus fruit, a hybrid between Kiyomi and ponkan (Nakano no.3), developed in Japan in 1972. Originally a brand name, Dekopon has become a genericized trademark and it is used to refer to all brands of the fruit; the generic name is shiranuhi or shiranui . Dekopon is distinctive due to its sweet taste, large size and the large protruding bump on the top of the fruit. The name is most likely a portmanteau between the word deko (凸, デコ; meaning convex) as a reference to its bump, and the pon in ponkan (ポンカン; one of the fruits that it is derived from) to create dekopon (デコポン). There were many market names for dekopon during the time dekopon was a trademark of the product from Kumamoto. For instance, himepon was the market name for the fruits originating from Ehime prefecture. The ones grown in Hiroshima prefecture were marketed as hiropon. However after an agreement whereby anyone can use the name dekopon if they pay a fee and meet certain quality standards, the name "dekopon" is used for products from anywhere in Japan. Dekopon does not have an agricultural variety registration number (Nōrin Bangō) because of its bump, which at the time of its development was considered to be unsightly, and failure to reduce acidity in the fruit. The fruits are usually grown in large greenhouses to keep them at a constant temperature, and are harvested from December to February (winter in Japan), while in the case of garden farming, they are harvested from March to April. After harvesting, dekopon are usually left for a period of 20–40 days so that the levels of citric acid in the fruit lower while the sugar levels increase, to make a more appealing taste for the market. Only products with sugar level above 13°Bx and citric acid below 1.0% can be sold with the name dekopon. In Brazil, dekopon is marketed under the brand name of Kinsei which derived from the Japanese word for Venus. Brazilian farmers have succeeded in adapting the variety to tropical to temperate climate in the highlands of São Paulo state. The work is done by Unkichi Taniwaki, a farmer of Japanese origin. Kinsei is easily harvested from May to September. In the high season for kinsei, each fruit costs around 0.50 USD at the Brazilian street market and supermarkets. In South Korea, dekopon is called hallabong (한라봉) named after Hallasan the mountain located in Jeju-do, where it is primarily grown. The fruit was brought into the United States in 1998 by a California citrus grower, Brad Stark. The rights to the cleaned up budwood were purchased in 2005 by the Griffith family. It was released as a commercial product under the name "Sumo" in early 2011. Dekopon have become so popular in Japan that the chewing candy brand giant Hi-Chew (ハイチュウ) has released a limited-edition dekopon flavor. In commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the first shipment of dekopon, Japan Fruit Growers Cooperative Association designated March 1 "Dekopon day" in 2006.

Wintergreen is a group of plants. Wintergreen once commonly referred to plants that remain green (continue photosynthesis) throughout the winter. The term evergreen is now more commonly used for this characteristic. Most species of the shrub genus Gaultheria demonstrate this characteristic and are called wintergreens in North America, the most common generally being the Eastern Teaberry (Gaultheria procumbens). Wintergreen berries, from Gaultheria procumbens, are used medicinally. Native Americans brewed a tea from the leaves to alleviate rheumatic symptoms, headache, fever, sore throat and various aches and pains. During the American Revolution, wintergreen leaves were used as a substitute for tea, which was scarce. Wintergreen is a common flavoring in American products ranging from chewing gum, mints and candies to smokeless tobacco such as dipping tobacco (American "dip" snuff) and snus. It is also a common flavoring for dental hygiene products such as mouthwash and toothpaste. Wintergreen oil can also be used in fine art printing applications to transfer a color photocopy image or color laser print to a high-rag content art paper, such as a hot-press watercolor paper. The transfer method involves coating the source image with the wintergreen oil then placing it face-down on the target paper and pressing the pieces of paper together under pressure using a standard etching press. Artificial wintergreen oil, called methyl salicylate, is used in microscopy because of its high refractive index. The Gaultheria species share the common characteristic of producing oil of wintergreen. Wintergreen oil is a pale yellow or pinkish fluid liquid that is strongly aromatic with a sweet woody odor (components: methyl salicylate (approx. 98%), a-pinene, myrcene, delta-3-carene, limonene, 3,7-guaiadiene, delta-cadinene) that gives such plants a distinctive "medicinal" smell whenever bruised. Salicylate sensitivity is a common adverse reaction to the methyl salicylate in oil of wintergreen; it can produce allergy-like symptoms or asthma. Wintergreen essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of the plant following maceration in warm water. Methyl salicylate, the main chemical constituent of the oil, is not present in the plant until formed by enzymatic action from a glycoside within the leaves as they are macerated in warm water. Oil of wintergreen is also manufactured from some species of birch, but these deciduous trees are not called wintergreens. Spiraea plants also contain methyl salicylate in large amounts and are used similarly to wintergreen. Although wintergreen has a strong "minty" smell and flavour, Gaultheria plants are not true mints. Wintergreen oil is used topically (diluted) or aromatheraputically as a folk remedy for muscle and joint discomfort, arthritis, cellulite, obesity, edema, poor circulation, headache, heart disease, hypertension, rheumatism, tendinitis, cramps, inflammation, eczema, hair care, psoriasis, gout, ulcers, broken or bruised bones][. The liquid salicylate dissolves into tissue and also into capillaries, so overuse is as risky as overuse of aspirin. Wintergreen also is used in some perfumery applications and as a flavoring agent for toothpaste, chewing gum and soft drinks, confectionery, in Listerine, and in mint flavorings. One surprising application is rust removal and degreasing of machinery. Wintergreen is particularly effective for breaking through sea water corrosion. Thirty ml (about 1 fl oz) of oil of wintergreen is equivalent to 55.7 g of aspirin, or about 171 adult aspirin tablets (US). This conversion illustrates the potency and potential toxicity of oil of wintergreen even in small quantities. Illiteracy may be a common factor in accidental overdoses and ingestions in adults][. Treatment is identical to the other salicylates. Early use of hemodialysis in conjunction with maximal supportive measures is encouraged in any significant ingestion of methyl salicylate. Strong warning labels are recommended for household salicylate-containing compounds such as oil of wintergreen.

Dipping tobacco

Dipping tobacco, traditionally referred to as moist snuff, is a type of finely ground or shredded, moistened smokeless tobacco product. It is commonly and idiomatically known by various terms—most often as dip and sometimes as rub. It is used by placing a lump or "dip" of tobacco between the lip and the gum. The act of using it is called dipping, packing or more specifically packing a lip, or packing a lipper. Dip is colloquially called "chew", "snuff", "chaw", "daps", "baccer", "spit tobacco", or "mouth tobacco", among other terms; because of this, it is sometimes confused with other tobacco products—namely chewing tobacco or nasal/dry snuff. Dipping tobacco is often referred to as smokeless tobacco. However, this may be a misnomer, as the phrase is something of an umbrella term that could refer to any type of tobacco product that does not require smoking in order for it to be used. Dipping tobacco was initially introduced as a variation of the historically Swedish oral tobacco, snus, that was brought to the United States by Swedish immigrants in the early 19th century. In modern times, it is still largely relegated to the United States, where moist snuff is most popular among the blue-collar working class and especially in the Southern and Midwestern United States. It is also widely used in certain parts of Canada. Before opening the can/tin of tobacco, users typically "pack" the tin, similar to how cigarette smokers pack a pack of cigarettes. This is done by placing one's thumb and index finger on the top and bottom of the tin, and then quickly turning the tin and flicking the wrist so that one's index finger taps the top of the tin. Unlike snus, which is most often placed between the upper lip and gum, dip users or "dippers" tend to use the lower. Dipping in the upper lip is unusual, though when done, it is colloquially termed an "upper decker" or "top lip dip".][ The dip rests on the inside lining of the mouth for a period depending upon the user's preference—often 10 to 30 minutes. Nicotine and other alkaloids found in tobacco are absorbed sublabially by the inferior or superior labial arteries. Buccal and sublingual absorption may also occur. Unlike snus, dip often causes the user to produce excess saliva during the act of dipping. This is typically expectorated onto the ground or in a container, because swallowing the saliva-tobacco mixture can cause irritation to the esophagus and induce nausea and vomiting. Smokeless tobacco is sometimes used in the workplace by employees, especially if the employer does not provide many cigarette breaks or if the employee is consistently using both hands during work (which doesn't provide opportunities for cigarette smoking). Smokeless tobacco is popular in many industrial areas where there is a safety risk in having an open flame, such as oil rigs or refineries. Copenhagen, a brand of dipping tobacco manufactured by the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company, has at times been an additive of choice for native Alaskans when making Blackbull or Iqmik (a traditional type of chewing tobacco product) with punk ash. As such, it reduces the amount of tobacco needed to receive a nicotine "buzz" and substantially increases the psychoactive effects they receive from its use. Dipping tobacco was first popularized and marketed as moist snuff in the 1800s. The term "snuff" in this context is an English cognate of the aforementioned "snus", from Swedish. Dipping tobacco's Scandinavian roots impart a noticeable legacy on modern American brands such as Copenhagen and Skoal (referring to the interlinguistic term skål, which in Norwegian, Danish and Swedish roughly translates to either "cheers", implying a toast, or "bowl"). The difference between cut sizes are the length of the strands of tobacco. Dipping tobacco, like other tobacco products, contains nicotine, a stimulant and a relaxant. Effects include increased heart rate, an increase in systolic blood pressure, and an increase in adrenaline. Dipping tobacco can cause fatal oral cancers and tooth loss. Some cancers include the following: Tongue cancer, lip cancer, cheek cancer, gum cancer, throat cancer, and cancer in the roof and floor of the mouth. In some cases it has been known to cause cancer within only a few years of use. Gruen Von Behrens, now a public speaker against the product, started using dipping tobacco at age 13 only to be diagnosed with mouth cancer at 17. He started noticing signs of cancer at age 16. However, more recent analysis has suggested that the oral cancer risk is not as high as previously believed. Studies are inconclusive as to how significantly smokeless tobacco affects users' cardiovascular systems, but it has been studied that it may have more nicotine than cigarettes. One study states that, "Although the evidence is not conclusive, the adverse cardiovascular effects of smokeless tobacco use are less than those caused by smoking but are more than those found in non-users." Other studies also indicate that smokeless tobacco related cardiovascular risks are lower than that of smoked tobacco. One study states that smokeless tobacco use has a "positive effect on cardiovascular risk factors in young physically fit men." However, it is important to note that one Indian study from the state of Rajasthan states, "There is a significantly greater prevalence of multiple cardiovascular risk factors [sic] obesity, resting tachycardia, hypertension, high total and LDL cholesterol, and low HDL cholesterol, and electrocardiographic changes in tobacco users, chewing or smoking, as compared-to tobacco non-users. Chewing tobacco is associated with similar cardiovascular risk as smoking." This finding may bear on the possibility that smokeless tobacco in India is produced differently than in Western countries.][ Due to contrasting results in studies, many conclude that further research should be done on the cardiovascular risks of smokeless tobacco. Smokeless tobacco contains nicotine, which is the primary reinforcing agent. According to European Union policy, Scandinavian or some American smokeless tobaccos (specifically snus) are at least 90% less hazardous than cigarette smoking. However, the habit is still addictive. Taxation and restriction of smoking is causing more smokeless tobacco use as "substitution." There are active public health debates regarding risk-reduction for smokers and the reconsideration of smokeless tobacco risks. "...There is a substantial body of informed and independent opinion that sees the value of harm reduction strategies based on smokeless tobacco." Most of these studies are supported by the makers of smokeless tobacco.][ There are few reports confirming what additives smokeless tobacco contains, and it is very likely that brands vary in the kinds and amounts of additives used. There is a widespread urban myth that fiberglass is added to smokeless tobacco to increase the efficiency of nicotine absorption. Although small, glass-like particles can be seen in snus, this may be due to the formation of salt crystals. The addition of glass to dipping tobacco would not be beneficial for increasing nicotine delivery, as bleeding and inflammation would be likely to reduce the uptake of nicotine. The amount of nicotine absorbed can be controlled by different cutting of the tobacco, increasing the nicotine concentration and raising the pH of the tobacco by adding various salts. An alkaline pH causes more nicotine to be absorbed, especially the free, unprotonated form, but is irritating to the mucosa. Nicotine itself can also irritate the mucosa. Based on studies at the time was believed to be a strong association with cancer and a fairly low usage outside of North America and several countries have banned the sale (and in some cases the import) of dipping tobacco. Sale of dipping tobacco was banned in South Australia in 1986 and across the country in 1991 and in most of the EU nations in 1992. Sweden was exempt from this ban because of the traditionally high usage of snus in that country. In the USA it is illegal to sell dip to persons under the age of 18 (except in Alabama, Alaska, New Jersey, Utah, and the Counties of Suffolk County, Onondaga and Nassau in New York State where the age requirement is 19). Companies are now required to place very large warning labels that comprise at least 20 percent of all advertisements and 30 percent of two principal display panels on each tin. In the United States, the federal government taxes dipping tobacco at $0.5033 per pound or $0.0315 per ounce, tin or pouch. Excise taxes are also levied at the state level (Pennsylvania being the only exception), and in some instances, at the local level. Sales tax is also applied to the full retail price of dipping tobacco in most jurisdictions. The price of a tin of tobacco can range anywhere from one dollar per tin to a little bit more than five dollars. A roll of chew, which is five tins, can be around six dollars; a sleeve, which is ten tins, can be around nine or ten dollars. This depends on the type and brand of the chew. Hhjnbh

Chewing tobacco
Chewing tobacco is a type of smokeless tobacco product consumed by placing a portion of the tobacco between the cheek and gum or upper lip teeth and chewing. Unlike dipping tobacco, it is not ground and must be manually crushed with the teeth to release flavor and nicotine. Unwanted juices are then expectorated (spat). Chewing tobacco is typically manufactured as several varieties of product – most often as loose leaf (or scrap), pellets (tobacco "bites" or "bits"), and "plug" (a form of loose leaf tobacco condensed with a binding sweetener). Nearly all modern chewing tobaccos are produced via a process of leaf curing, cutting, fermentation and processing or sweetening. Historically, many American chewing tobacco brands (which were popular during the American Civil War era) were made with cigar clippings. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, "Some health scientists have suggested that smokeless tobacco should be used in smoking cessation programmes and have made implicit or explicit claims that its use would partly reduce the exposure of smokers to carcinogens and the risk for cancer. These claims, however, are not supported by the available evidence." Oral and spit tobacco increase the risk for leukoplakia, a precursor to oral cancer. Chewing tobacco has been known to cause cancer, particularly of the mouth and throat. It is often mistaken that using smokeless tobacco will increase ones chances of mouth and throat cancer than if they smoked, but that is not true. Smoking poses a greater threat of cancer in all areas that smokeless tobacco poses a threat. It is often a topic of controversy if smokeless tobacco is a safer alternative to cigarettes. Chewing is one of the oldest methods of consuming tobacco. Native Americans in both North and South America chewed the leaves of the plant, frequently mixed with the mineral lime.][Chewing tobacco was the most prevalent form of tobacco use in the United States until it was overtaken by cigarette smoking in the early 20th century. In Alaska, the use of "Punk Ash" has been used with chewing tobacco for well over 100 years. The fungus "Phillinus Igniarius", found on the paper birch trees, was burned down to an ash and mixed with the tobacco. The Punk Ash changed the pH or alkalinity of the tobacco so that the nicotine could be more readily absorbed into the bloodstream. The southern United States was distinctive for its production of tobacco, which earned premium prices from around the world. Most farmers grew a little for their own use, or traded with neighbors who grew it. Commercial sales became important in the late 19th century as major tobacco companies rose in the South, becoming one of the largest employers in cities like Winston-Salem, NC, Durham, NC and Richmond, VA. Southerners dominated the tobacco industry in the United States; even a concern as large as the Helm Tobacco Company, headquartered in New Jersey, was headed by former Confederate officer George Washington Helme. In 1938 R.J. Reynolds marketed eighty-four brands of chewing tobacco, twelve brands of smoking tobacco, and the top-selling Camel brand of cigarettes. Reynolds sold large quantities of chewing tobacco, though that market peaked about 1910. A historian of the American South in the late 1860s reported on typical usage in the region where it was grown, paying close attention to class and gender: Chewing tobacco is still sometimes used, predominantly by young white males in some rural parts of the American Southeast, but also more rarely in other areas and age groups. In September 2006 both the Republican and Democratic candidates for Senator from Virginia admitted to chewing tobacco and agreed that it sets a bad example for children. In the late 19th century, during the peak in popularity of chewing tobacco in the western United States, a device known as the spittoon was a ubiquitous feature throughout places both private and public (e.g. parlours and passenger cars). The purpose of the spittoon was to provide a receptacle for excess juices and spittle accumulated from the oral use of tobacco. As chewing tobacco's popularity declined throughout the years, the spittoon became merely a relic of the Old West and is rarely seen outside museums. To this very day, spittoons are still present on the floor of the U.S. Senate's old chamber. When the rules of baseball were first written in 1845, the carcinogenic potential of chewing tobacco was unknown. At that time, it was commonly used by players and coaches alike. Smokeless tobacco use became rampant by players by the early 1900s. They liked chewing tobacco because it kept their mouths (and their mitts) moist on the dusty infield. The use of chewing tobacco in baseball steadily increased until the mid-20th century, when cigarettes became popular and took the place of some players' smokeless tobacco habit. As shown below, a number of notable players have died of oral cancer as a result. Joe Garagiola, who quit, warns about chewing tobacco: Bill Tuttle was a Major League player who made a big name for himself both through baseball and his anti-chewing-tobacco efforts. Tuttle was an outfielder for the Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Athletics, and the Minnesota Twins. He was an avid tobacco chewer; even his baseball cards pictured him with a bulge in his cheek from the tobacco. Nearly forty years after he began using smokeless tobacco, Tuttle developed a tumor in his mouth so severe it protruded through his skin. A few years before he died, Tuttle had many of his teeth, his jawbone, his gums, and his right cheekbone removed. He also had his taste buds removed. Tuttle dedicated the last years of his life to speaking with Major League teams about not using chewing tobacco where television cameras could see the players so that children could not witness and be influenced by it. He also dedicated time to the National Spit Tobacco Education Program, which was being run by friend and former Major League player, Joe Garagiola. Tuttle died July 27, 1998, after a five-year battle with cancer. Babe Ruth, perhaps the most famous player of all time, also died of throat cancer. In the mid-1940s, Ruth was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (cancer of the upper throat). The top two causes of this disease are alcohol and tobacco; Ruth was a heavy user of both. Rex Barney, who began his career at age 19 pitching for the Brooklyn Dodgers, later recounted that his coach told him he had to begin chewing tobacco if he ever wanted to be a Major League pitcher. Barney contracted a sickness from chewing and was unable to play in the first game he was supposed to start in. 1845: Baseball rules written, chewing tobacco use among players already rampant. 1860: The term "bullpen" comes into existence when Blackwell Tobacco Company releases Bull Durham brand tobacco. 1890: Dr. Robert Koch shows that the spitting of chewing tobacco was leading to a spread of tuberculosis. This leads to a downturn in use of chewing tobacco among the general population, but baseball players continue use. 1909: Honus Wagner, a well-known American baseball player, tells American Tobacco Company to take his picture off of their cartons. He does not want to be responsible for influencing children to smoke. 1948: Babe Ruth dies of throat cancer at age 53. 1950s: Use of smokeless tobacco decreases as players make the switch to cigarettes. 1970: Players' use of smokeless tobacco increases once again when the U.S. Government begins to warn against the potential risks of smoking. 1993: Minor League players, coaches, and staff prohibited from smokeless tobacco use during games. 1998: Bill Tuttle, anti-chewing-tobacco spokesperson and former MLB player, dies at the age of 69 after a five-year battle with cancer. 2010: San Diego Padres HOFer Tony Gwynn is diagnosed with cancer of a salivary gland which he says is due to him still using chew. 2011: New five-year labor deal prevents the use of smokeless tobacco during pre and post-game interviews. However doesn't ban the use during games as long as the can or pouch is out of sight. Smokeless tobacco companies often target younger people with their marketing campaigns][. This marketing takes advantage of the fact that, while the current young generation grew up with the knowledge that smoking causes cancer and heart attacks they do not yet know the health risks of other forms of tobacco][. Tobacco companies cleverly target their advertisements toward inducing younger consumers to start buying their products][. For example, in 2001 and 2002, The United States Smokeless Tobacco Company ran advertisements for its Rooster brand in Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated respectively. Slogans included "Cock-A-Doodle Freakin' Do," "Where's the Chicks," and "Birds of a Feather Party Together." There is debate over whether players should be banned from using tobacco products during the games. The Major League Baseball Players Association disagrees, claiming it is a legal substance and therefore is acceptable to be used during games. Harvard School of Public Health professor, Gregory Connolly, however, says "the use of smokeless tobacco by players has a powerful role model effect on youth particularly among young males in sport, some of whom remain addicted in future careers as professional athletes." According to Connolly, one quarter of Minor League players do not support allowing the use of chewing tobacco during games, and one third of Major League players support abolishing it. Due to health concerns The MLB was asked to ban the use of chewing tobacco during the 2011 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers. Many believe that the widespread use of chewing tobacco by baseball players has led to a rampant increase in youth, and particularly teen, use][. Additionally, teen use of smokeless tobacco has increased, while use of all tobacco products by teens has decreased. This is true especially among white and Hispanic males. In 1970, five times as many 65-and-older males used smokeless tobacco as 18- to 24-year-olds did (12.7% of the population were 65+ male users, 2.2% of the population were 18–24 male users). More specifically, moist snuff use increased for males ages 18–24 from 1% of the population to 6.2% of the population, while 65+ male users decreased from 4% to 2.2%. A 2009 survey by The U.S. Center for Disease Control revealed that 8.9% of U.S. high school students had used smokeless tobacco on at least 1 day during the 30 days before the survey. Usage was more common among males (15.0%) than females (2.2%) and among whites (11.9%) than blacks (3.3%) or Hispanics (5.1%). The five states with the highest percentage of high school users were Wyoming (16.2%) North Dakota (15.3%) South Dakota (14.6%) Montana (14.6%) and West Virginia (14.4%).

Oliver Twist Tobacco
Oliver Twist is a brand name of smokeless tobacco manufactured by House of Oliver Twist of Odense, Denmark. Unlike its name suggests, Oliver Twist is not chewed. Instead, like dip, the bits are simply inserted between the lip and gum and left to absorb through the mouth. Unlike most dipping tobacco products (especially the American varieties, such as Skoal), however, Oliver Twist is not loose, but rather formed into a cylindrical plug for easier clean-up and more discreet consumption. The pellets are very small, approximately 1 cm by .5 cm and are made from a single leaf. As the product's description reads on its packaging: Smokeless tobacco. Keep between cheek and gum - don't chew - its long lasting flavor gives you discreet tobacco satisfaction without expectorating. When the taste is gone, the pellet is easily removed. Oliver Twist has been manufactured in Odense, Denmark, by House of Oliver Twist A/S since 1805. It is imported into the US by RBJ Sales, Inc. of Dresden, Tennessee. Currently, Oliver Twist is available in various flavors: Tropical (flavored with anise), Royal (flavored with English licorice), Sunberry (blackcurrant-flavored), Eucalyptus, Mint, Citrus, Wintergreen, Arctic, Bergamot and Original (sweet licorice).

Spearmint (flavour)
Spearmint is a flavour used mainly in chewing gums and tooth paste that is either naturally or artificially created to taste like oil of spearmint (herb). It is also popular as a flavouring for milkshakes in Canada and the U.S.; during each March, McDonalds puts them out as a Shamrock Shake. Wrigley Company and Cadbury Adams are among the companies in the United States that manufacture and sell spearmint-flavoured chewing gum as Wrigley's Spearmint. Excel gum comes in this flavour in Canada; the same gum is sold as Eclipse in the US and Australia. Jolt gum is also available in a spearmint flavour. Freshen Up Gum is chewing gum produced in Brazil which also has a spearmint flavoured gum. Wrigley also makes a sugar free chewing gum called Eclipse Sugarfree Spearmint and Extra Sugarfree Spearmint. For the person who doesn't like gum sticking to teeth there is Freedent Spearmint Chewing Gum. The flavour is not restricted to chewing gums strictly. It is sometimes possible to buy spearmint-flavoured Mentos, there is also a Spearmint flavoured Soft Mint form Trebor, and a spearmint Polos, these are on sale in the United Kingdom "chewy dragées" in some countries. They were (or still are) available in Germany, the Netherlands and Poland. As of 2005, they aren't sold in the latter any more. The name "spearmint" is trademarked in the UK. This issue became known when skiffle singer Lonnie Donegan recorded a cover version of the 1924 American song "Does the Spearmint Lose its Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight?" Because "Spearmint" was trademarked in the UK, BBC Radio would not play the song as it was; as a result, Donegan renamed the song "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose It's Flavor (On The Bedpost Over Night)", turning it into a top-10 hit in both countries.

Chewing gum

Chewing gum is a soft, cohesive substance intended for chewing but not swallowing. Humans have used chewing gum for at least 5,000 years. Modern chewing gum was originally made of chicle, a natural latex. By the 1960s, chicle was replaced by butadiene-based synthetic rubber which is cheaper to manufacture. Most chewing gums are considered polymers.

Food and drink

Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism and assimilated by the organism's cells in an effort to produce energy, maintain life, or stimulate growth.

Historically, people secured food through two methods: hunting and gathering, and agriculture. Today, most of the food energy consumed by the world population is supplied by the food industry.
