Why is the taste always gone in gum when?!
The deliciousness is still there, it's just a bit more chewy and a bit less flavoured.
Cause other people also eat it from under the desk. I have about 7 already chewed pieces that I am chewing right now. Just go to the nearest gas station, and ask for strawberry flavoured condoms. Suck on them for awhile and the taste should return. Plus, it helps to practice!
The bacteria from the surface has erroded it's way through, thus making it really gross to chew on.
