Clark's Teaberry Gum
It goes in crumbly and brittle but quickly becomes such a lovely smooth texture as you chew. This Clark's Teaberry gum is addictive. The initial super sweet wintergreen burst is really pleasing for about five minutes. The flavor fades, though, into a pretty unpleasant aftertaste. I immediately wanted more of that fresh sweet taste and soon rationalized that eating one stick means finishing the pack. Thanks, Molly, for introducing me to this classic that I somehow missed!
