Even though it's Mondelēz International, it will always be the Chiclets factory to me because if you remember it was made there at one point in time. Man, I really miss the Tiny Size bags you used to find everywhere.

The "gum factory" has been here in Rockford for as long as I can remember and for as long as I can remember and whenever we'd drive past it as a kid my family would roll down the windows to the car and try to figure out what flavor they were making that day. In fact, it's a game I still play with my own kids.

As of now, the only produce the brands Dentyne and Trident gum here in town and I prefer Trident because it has both minty and fruity choices so you can mix it up a bit.

On average a package of Trident costs around $1.15, keep in mind math is not a strong suit of mine, but if mine is correct that's almost 8,700 packages of gum!

Your breath would be fresh for a very, very, long time, and wearing a mask makes your breath a bit more noticeable this might help a bunch.
