smack dab in the middle, smack dab in the middle ...

For some reason I just sung all of the words to a jingle for Chewels gum¹, which I don't think I've heard for a good 20 years. On the other hand, I can't remember my parents' anniversary.

I swear, if I could understand and control the mechanism by which some bits of knowledge get lodged in my brain and others don't, I could rule the world. Or at least not annually disappoint my parents.

And I discover another perk of having divorced parents - one occasion fewer to inevitably forget!

Re: I rocked some Chewels

There was Freshen-up that also had a liquid center, and Tidal Wave was another, and if you remember Binaca breath spray, there was apparently also a liquid-filled gum based on that (called Binaca Blast).

"It squirted in your mouth when bit."

Was I the only one who was disturbed by that? I mean really, if my gum is squirting in my mouth, the least it could do is buy me dinner first.

Well, there's probably a pretty good reason that it's no longer marketed. :)
