Song of the Day : Savoy Truffle – The Beatles
Stride gum has a wonderful new flavor. It’s called Shift – a gum that takes your mouth through a magical journey, first tasting like citrus and then shifting to a fresh minty breeze. Not the greatest combination in our opinion, but the sensation is nothing short of bewilderment.
This gum got us thinking. Wasn’t there a tale, years ago, about a man trying to revolutionize the gum-chewing industry? A crazy candy scientist who believed gum could not only change flavors, but satisfy a craving for an entire meal?
That man was Willy Wonka. While he may have only been a fictional character, his ideas were as concrete as they come. Now, scientists are piggybacking on Wonka’s dreams and finding some great discoveries along the way.
