    I'm jonesing for gum!

    Primal Fuel
    Ok all of you expert PBer's....I love gum and have given it up because of the artificial sweeteners in it. But I want gum. I love gum. I need PB gum. Is there anything out there? Perhaps at natural food store? If so, it is good?

    Beeswax. Dripping out of the honey jar, or off a bar bought intended to be used for making cold cream, lol. Yum.

    I also like having a nice bite of jerky or sirloin trip and getting that last little bit of really chewy gristle and just chewing and chewing and chewing ...

    There is a xylitol gum called Spry that is good for your teeth. You can find it at most health food stores.

    +1 I chew gum sweetened with xylitol.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    You may just be jonesing for the sweet taste. If that is the case, you are better off weaning your tastebuds away from sweetness altogether. If you feel the need to chew on something get some whole cloves or mint leaves.

    Not too related to the original topic, but I won a "Hangman" contest way back when with the words "xanthan gum"

    Mastic? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastic_(plant_resin)

    Never tried it myself. Seems like one of the most natural options.

    I'm not sure about toothpicks, but bacon mints and bacon gum is available at ThinkGeek:


    They also have bacon-flavored toothpaste and dental floss: http://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/whereisit.cgi?t=bacon
