Candies and Gums

When I was a kid we got candy bars as a treat and were allowed to chew gum just about any time we wanted to. There was not the stigma of sugar and tooth decay.

My parents’ only stipulation about gum was that you had to chew with your mouth closed and you had to dispose of it properly. My mom always carried gum in her purse have fresh breath, and I always seemed to have a nickle to spend on a pack of gum when I wanted some.

I loved to chew Dentyne gum, but also tried different ones, like Juicyfruit, Fruit Stripes, Doublemint, and Teaberry. I miss those days.

Quick – Name Some Coffee Brands

Sometimes we are sitting in a small group waiting for something or someone and conversation lags. This is a great time to bring up a subject where everyone can contribute. Today, I asked the group, “Name some coffee brands.” Wow – would you believe that the first brand called out was NOT Starbucks? The first one was Maxwell House. I was amazed!
