Do you chew gum or use mints often? what kind/flavor do you prefer?

also... anybody use binaca or similar breath spray? what happened to that stuff? it seems so 80's/90's n ow... I think of shows like Saved by the Bell and them dramatically spraying their breath before going in for the kiss.

I carry gum on me, but honestly don't chew it much since I quit smoking.

I also have a listerine breath spray on me just in case. Again, I think I've used it once in over a year.

No, I occasionally may have a breath mint if someone has one and offers it to me but I dont buy or carry them around.

Im not a fan of gum and the chewing involved....one of my "sound of the gum chewing/smacking grates on my nerves" things.

If I have a mint I prefer cinnamon or wintergreen.

I use gum (but I try to chew it quietly). We eat a lot of garlicky, oniony things and I'm a teacher. I'd rather not knock the kids or their parents out with my dragon breath, lol. I also love mints (Altoids are especially yummy).

I used to have gum on me all the time when I smoked, but not so much since I quit.

I remember binaca! Do they even sell it anymore?

I usually have gum and mints in my purse. DH LOVES raw onion so after we eat he knows to dig through my purse and get one.

The gum I prefer is Extra spearmint (neon yellow/green one). And the mints it really depends on what looks good at the checkout stand. I have raspberry mint right now.

No usually. Dh has gum all the time, since he is a smoker and uses it for situations where he can't smoke. Once in a while I'll have a piece, it's usually trident or orbitz.

I don't ever carry mints or gum. I love those melt away mints though...more like candy, lol.
