Has anyone here ever tried chewing mastic gum?

I ordered a box on a whim recently and the flavour/consistency is really nice. Tastes like sweet pine or cedar, even a bit like ginger, and the chewiness never seems to run out.

It's also meant to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, among other medicinal uses, but I just like to chew things.

No but it sounds interesting. I have sugar-free polos and extra mints all the time because my throat's always horribly dry and I don't particularly like either.

I used to love it when I was in the mid-east. In fact, I miss them. Where did you get them? Arabian shops?

Looks perfect for scamming Ravers.

Well I found some on eBay but I wasn't very keen. It's like tasteless and overly gooey chewing gum.

Some broke off and got really, really stuck to my front teeth and wouldn't just scrape off so I had to spend a couple of minutes removing it with floss and a brush.

I love reading my old posts. Everyday, it seems like a bit of me dies, and I look and wonder how joyful and happy I used to be.

I just tried again without chewing (it's supposed to be good for heartburn, right?) and this time it stuck itself all over all of my teeth. I just spent five minutes scraping, brushing, picking and flossing them and I can still feel it. Ugh, horrible stuff.

You need to add bigger, harder lumps in. These are actually chewy rather than sticky. The smaller lumps on their own aren't much good.

OK. Thanks. The size of the tears is supposedly "medium" but they do look pretty small.

The biggest pieces should be about the size of a Brazil nut. These are the ones that can be broken up and used to toughen up the gum.

I've just tried chewing a palmful of little tears at once and it's not sticky at all. It's very tough in fact. Presumably if I have about six of them, that should make normal consistency chewing gum.

The tupperware full of this stuff has somehow kept well all this time. I'm chewing a lump. Forgot how nice it was.

I hope I don't die or get some weird infection.

I've had one that was a couple of years old. Nothing bad happened.

But the 1966 World Cup wasn't until July!
