The Exact Flavor of Juicy Fruit[edit]

Hey, in the Philippines during the year 2004, a TV commercial was shown and it says that cherries, bananas and pineapples are the three main flavors of Juicy Fruit. Obin 3391 15:36, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Ok Ive said it before and I will say it again why doesnt any body note that the flavor last 2.5 seconds I think any body can atest to that.

I believe that the exact flavor of Juicy Fruit is not actually a fruit, but actually comes from Isopentenyl acetate, a carboxylic ester. Currently, no wiki page exists describe this chemical. NatePhysics (talk) 01:15, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

whats that song...[edit]

I remember vaguely a juicy fruit commercial where a bunch of campers are attacked by a bear,with this weird,fast music playing,does anyone remember it?was it the juicy fruit jingle sped up to sound differently?i know this sounds stupid,but i liked the beat and would love to hear some identification since i remember the commercial vividly.

top brands[edit]

According to american food distributors Coremark and MTC, the traditional wrigley gums are not in the top 10 products anymore. Juicy fruit, spearment, big red, doublemint. Stride, #5 and trident currently seem to occupy the top brands right now. Dentyne and Orbit have also fallen in ranking. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.121.14.132 (talk) 03:58, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Important question[edit]

I have never tried Juicy Fruit. Is is true that its gustatory sensation can bring about a kinetic relocation of oneself once inserted in one's oral cavity? Also, I came here to find info a the jingle such as the creators, idea behind it and its age. I see it goes back to at least 1981. If anyone has ever written a doctoral thesis about this subject, any illumination would be greatly appreciated.--72.1.222.80 (talk) 14:02, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Energy[edit]

The article says each stick contains 10 calories. Are those thermal calories, or nutritional calories (kilocalories)? If they are kilocalories, then each stick has 10*1000*4.2=42000 J. --Shanedidona (talk) 05:01, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Color of Actual Gum (Orignal sticks)[edit]

Now the stick gum is bright yellow. Who remembers in the 90s when it was beige in color? Should this be noted? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.152.253.219 (talk) 19:22, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

I remember that. I was disappointed to see it yellow. The coloring can't be very healthy. 12.10.124.189 (talk) 07:22, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest[edit]

Why is the citation in the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (film) by Chief Bromden not mentioned in the article? see [1] or [2] -- 87.144.93.249 (talk) 19:11, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

I think it's because of the spoiler warning, but i think i may put it in.

Megatonman (talk) 09:29, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

It's actually because it's completely trivial. It's had no impact on popular perception of the subject. Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 10:05, 24 October 2009 (UTC)
That may be true, but I have come up with a couple of counterpoints;
•It does put Juicy fruit in somewhat of a historical context (even if it is just in the US). since the film was made in '75.
•The 'juicy fruit' scene, in my view, is a fairly pivotal one within the film, and may need to be represented here as well.

Television commercial[edit]

I got your reference right here. (Well, I'll leave it to someone else to google all the FCC stuff) —Wiki Wikardo 02:13, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
