National chewing gum day

Today apparently is National Chewing Gum today, so we thought we'd share some chewing gum trivia with you - courtesy of https://nationaldaycalendar.com

"Various forms of chewing gum have existed since the Neolithic period. In 2007, a British archaeology student discovered a 5,000-year-old piece of chewing gum made from bark tar with tooth imprints in it. Presumed to be the oldest piece of chewing gum, it was found in Kierikki, Yli-li, Finland. Made from bark tar, the gum was believed to have antiseptic properties and other medicinal advantages"

We don't know how much of the above is true, but we do know that chewing gum with xylitol in is officially good for your teeth.
