Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

The little round balls sold by nonprofits in banks and other places. The gum base is perfect.

I've recently taken a liking to Stride's new ID gum. It has a built in magnet to keep the flip open package SHUT. Keeping my gum from ending up in my cup holders, etc.

Where's the love for Fruit Stripe? You know, we all had it as kids.

Bazooka. It started my sugar addiction as a child, I am certain of that!

Double Mint. Every week my Great Grandmother use to send me letters, she always added a stick of Double Mint, when I got a boyfriend? She added two. Sadly she's passed now, but husband, myself and our four year old now enjoy the gum together.

But we don't share. Step off my gum!

I still adore Black Jack Gum, going way back to the 50s in our small town in western PA. When I place a stick of Black Jack in my mouth, I'd swear I was back there & a kid again.

Bazooka Joe. The horrible taste! The unfunny comic! The unappealing colour! The small hard pellet that bruises your palate! It has everything you need in childhood disappointment in one package.

Now, Extra Dessert Delights. The Key Lime Pie and the Apple Pie are the best, and really taste like pie.

When I was a kid, Bub's Daddy. Either Green Apple or Watermelon. A giant rope of gum goodness. If it were still around it would still be my favorite.

Extra, some type of mint so long as it's not Wintergreen.

The League is where its at. That tuff Mudder trucker on the package dares you to chew his gum.

You could spell it right! It's "Chiclet" not "Chicklet."

Ha, true. Sadly no one lives out of state to send letters to now, other wise I would keep writing letters.

Thermogum. Nice initial raspberry flavor and then it tastes like chewing black pepper for up to 10 hours.
Gum Acacia in general gums.

Commercial gum would be...
Black Black.

I prefer Spry. It is sweetened with Xylitol, which actually protects your teeth. Imagine that. A gum that is good for your teeth. Even my dentist praised me for chewing it. Plus, it's called Spry, and that makes me think of the scene in "Bad Santa" where Billy Boy Thornton asks the kid if his grandma is spry.

I am addicted to IceBreakers Duo Mints, Strawberry

Ever since I stopped smoking, these are my fallback. I can eat a full tin a day if I let myself.

Same, because Trident keeps it's flavor. Grandma has been chewing it my whole life (She's 87 currently) and I'm carrying on the tradition because other gum seems to let me down. Buy it at Costco for cheap and chew through your days!

Cute story, kutiel :-)

I checked "The gum that comes with baseball cards." The gum was so-so, but the baseball cards tasted terrible, and you could chew and chew and chew and all you got for your effort was a big wad of pulp. Used to throw that at the blackboard in school.

Handfuls of Chicle (Chickle?) Tabs sold by the quarter. One of my brothers and I see how many we can shove in our mouths and chew before our jaw muscles cramp up.

It's pure sugar bliss for about 10 minutes, then you're chewing hard clay.

Nothing beats the sugar buzz accompanied by sore jaw muscles!
