I haven't had gum since I was about 11. I wasn't allowed it until as 10. On my 10th birthday I immediately bought some just because I could, went mad on it for a little while, then got mored and didn't bother again. I also got a little scared because of rumours floating around that said gum could give you mouth ulcers.
Back then I could blow bubbles with bubble gum, but not with chewing gum.
i did with bubble gum when I was 12 years age that was the fashion then looks like it still is. never did like chewing gum or bubble gum. only for blowing the bubbles thank goodness I gave it up soon after, I dislike seeing people chewing gum looks a a cow chewing its cud..
I don't think I can, & I'm too old to try now! We had our eldest granddaughter for the week-end at the other daughters house. She found a packet of it in Woolies, so we bought it for her. My daughter taught her how to use it, on the train! She took about 50 selfies on my phone, as she learnt to the blow bubbles. She keeps the packet at her aunties house for her next visit!
