    SO LITTLE TIME

A blog for chewing gum? Yes, it’s true! Find out how I became a gum fanatic and why I’ve started a blog to show my love for the flavorful deliciousness.

Get a stack-ranked view of every chewing gum I’ve ever reviewed, from highest to (gulp) lowest. Somebody’s bubble is bound to burst!

How does each brand and flavor stack up? I evaluate each gum on a scale of 5, taking into consideration flavor, texture, smell, and more.
