Chewing Gum Lifespan

I've recently started to chew gum on a regular basis. I was chewing Wrigley's Big Red for the past few days. Today I ran out of that and got a pack of Wrigley's Winterfresh. They have them in the snack machines around campus. Anyway, a stick of Winterfresh lasts exactly four hours. How do I know this? Because that's how long I chewed the piece I had before it lost its consistency and turned into a soluble sludge. My lips are really sticky now, since when it lost its consistency as gum, some of it leaked onto my lips and it formed a blue film. Oh well. I don't know how long Big Red lasts since I always stopped chewing it before it gave out. Maybe it lasts indefinitely.

Awesome, gum is useful. But remember the words of the oompa loompa's, "Gum Chewing's fine if it's once in a while, it stops you from smoking and brightens your smile, but it's repulsive, revolting, and rude, when you chew all day long.....THE WAY THAT A COW DOES"

Hmm, yeah, I never read the book, or seen the new movie. I've seen the old one, but it's been a long time. I do, however, remember a certain band director saying something very similar.
