Recalling How Our Love Used To Be…





Chewing gum has been around for thousands of years and it is one of the oldest types of candy.

In prehistoric times, people chewed chunks of tree resin, which is the first appearance of chewing of gum. In early civilizations, people chewed gum to clean their teeth and freshen their breath.

While chewing gum was widely popular from the mid 20th century until the 2000s, in the early 2010s it has seen a decline in sales as more alternatives for fresh breath came out and also due to poor marketing choices made by gum companies.

The gumball was not invented until the start of the 20th century by an anonymous German grocer in New York. As according to the legend, irate that his gum—in flat, stubby form—was not selling, he wadded up a piece and flung it across the store.

The wad of gum fell into a barrel of sugar, and the grocer then picked it up to admire its newly acquired glistening appearance.

Today, gumballs appeal to both children and adults alike with their bright, shiny colors and bold flavors. However, when it was first introduced in 1907 and were available through special gumball machines; their sales account for only 3 percent of chewing gum sales.

This is likely due to the fact that gumballs sold through gumball machines are sold one at a time, whereas stick gum is sold in multiples.

  1. It’s easier for a romantic to keep the flame burning; so perhaps therein lies the answer for us all: take the time to keep the romance alive and remember to thank your partner for the little things he/she does so they’ll keep coming… Happy Anniversary on your 1st year with WordPress! Regards, Sandra

    • Hi Sandra,

      You’re absolutely correct! It is all about mutual feelings, loves and most of all, respect so that there is always sufficient fuel for the flame to burn on.

  3. There’s this theory that falling in love is triggered by hormones or enzymes that with dwindle off within a span of 3 years. after that it’s all about maintainence and working to keep the relationship. i wonder how true the first theory is but all relationships (even friendship) needs some work. 🙂

    • I do believe in that hormones theory and that’s why I am truly agreeing with you on the maintaining part.

  4. Wonderful post with a clever comparison, thank you for sharing my friend! 🙂

    I agree that staying in love requires care and attention to keep the relationship strong, however if you keep showing you care then that’s the main thing. I think it’s the little things that matter. Like right now Hayden is giving me a hand by helping heat up dinner – yay he he! 😀
