Will there ever be a chewing gum that never loses its flavour?

  1. I think probably not! The reason chewing gum seems to lose it’s flavour is that the taste buds in your mouth get used to the flavour so you stop tasting it.

    You can try this with other things. If you take a sip of a sweet drink it’ll taste sweet. But if you eat lots of sweets then take a sip of the same drink it’ll not taste as sweet.

    We get used to smells too and light. It stops us going mad from noticing everything that’s happening around us! We’re programmed to notice change rather than continuation of the same.
