According to data from NielsenIQ shared by Bloomberg, gum sales from May 2021 increased more than 23 percent from where it was almost a year ago. After months of basking in our own stank, consumers are gearing up for the re-opening, taking extra measures to ensure their mouths are minty fresh.
If you’re eager for better breath, consider buying a pack of natural chewing gum. Until recently, most traditional chewing gums have been made with suspect ingredients and chemicals that aren’t great for our bodies, such as aspartame.
