Here I am trying sap gum for the first time since I was seven years old. If you've ever craved the flavour "Christmas Tree", this is it. It's the smell of strong pine captured on my taste buds--- and it's a bit weird. But fun! And free! And sugar free!
|I gathered about a tablespoon of hard sap from the pine trees and tossed them in my mouth like tic tacs.|
|I chewed for about two minutes before it completely softened like store-bought gum.|
|I then proceeded to play with my gum. The flavour was strong even after fifteen minutes of hard chewing and stretching. It resisted my attempts to blow bubbles though.|
