Gum parkers

Making It Grow Radio Minute
SC Public Radio

Hello, I’m Amanda McNulty with Clemson Extension and Making It Grow. Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight? If your mother says don't chew it, Do you swallow it in spite? Can you catch it on your tonsils, Can you heave it left & right? Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight? Some people do save their gum but prefer not to stick on the bed post. Fortunately, you can find adorable gum parkers. Now maybe more collectors’ items, these little ceramic kitty cats lying on their backs have the words gum parker on their stomach, if you don’t want to save gum, you could perhaps put your rings in one. I’m ordering some for my girls and even though they now live in California had it drilled in their heads and know to never ever chew gum in public.
