    WOW! That’s amazing, I wonder if it does anything for smelly feet. 🙂 Keep up the good work!

    This would be great for athletes. How does it work? And how is that healthy?

    Cadie,

    I don’t know how great it would be to have a team full of menthol candy smelling men run around a baseball diamond or a football field, but you make a good point. Athletes certainly sweat a lot. 🙂

    As far as how the gum works in the body after it’s chewed, I can’t find any sites that explain that very important question. Like you’ve pointed out, we can only wonder how healthy something like that could be for our bodies once ingested. That question alone would keep me from trying it myself.

    I’ll continue to check up on it and let you know if I find anything out. I imagine that as long as it doesn’t start to take off in the States, it might be left alone.

    Reinventing the wheel that is one thing …… but to make a gum that turns into deodorant, that’s definitely not going in my mouth because of one simple fact. Ever read the labels on harmful chemicals? Example of one being bleach if swallowed please contact this 1800 number well what if this chewing gum causes me to die or does some thing harmful? Why risk my life for buying gum that then turns into deodorant?

New chewing gum doubles as deodorant

It appears the Japanese are at it again. From a toilet that cleans your bottom before you can, to some of the most advanced building materials on the planet, the Japanese have come up with some pretty amazing, albeit sometimes strange, inventions. This time it’s a chewing gum that does more than freshen your breath, it freshens your whole body.

According to CNN.com, a new “functional candy” product known as Fuwarinka scented gum contains aromatic compounds that cause skin to release such scents as “Fresh Citrus” and “Fruity Rose” for up to six hours after chewing. For those more masculine chewers, a “Rose Menthol” scent is also available.

So if you’re looking to freshen your breath or just flat out beat B.O. altogether, this new Japanese innovation in the fight for an overall better body smell might be what you’re looking for.

Weird, yes, but apparently it works.
