Favorite Friday...Orbit Sugarless Gum!

I have to say these little packs of gum has saved me from thousands of empty calories! I buy them by the case at Sam's Club or Costco!

When I am in need of a sweet that I shouldn't have...I pop in a piece of gum...When I go to Costco or Sam's Club where they pass out samples upon samples of all kinds of good stuff...I pop in a piece of gum before I walk through the doors! When I attend a wedding shower and they have my favorite cake (white on white!) and my competition is 17 days away... I pop in 5 pieces and think of the worst cake I've ever eaten! When I'm bored and starting to fidget around in the cupboards for something to chew on...I pop in a piece of gum! It totally works! Although, I am a horrible gum chewer...I snap, pop, blow big bubbles! Try it...Just make sure you get the sugar free kind...I was going to steal some from my kids Easter basket and it was 25 calories! Jeez...for gum? No thank you!

  1. I have found that brushing my teeth sometimes curbs a craving too. Not sure why, maybe I don't want to ruin my fresh breath?
