We currently have 64 comments on that article – most of them dealing with whether or not you can chew the wrapper.

” This is the official response I received: While Stride(r) gum is designed to be chewed for a ridiculously long time, our gum wrappers are not.
You can also substitute soymilk or rice milk for the almond milk.) Gluten & Dairy Free 72 hour kit (Compiled by J.
It is a list of food items for a 72-hr emergency kit.
This is a great kit to have on hand in case you lose all power, have to evacuate due to weather conditions, or come across any other emergencies.
Especially with food allergies, emergency shelters will be hard pressed to be able to accommodate your needs (especially if you are also allergic to gluten…I can’t imagine!

Just a little over a year ago I wrote a quick article about the announcement of Stride Gum by Cadbury-Adams. 2007 we had our 12th comment on that article and the first one that mentioned eating the wrapper: Chew the wrapper? I know you can eat the inner rice paper wrapper of Botan Rice Candy, but chew the wrapper of a gum?
I dismissed it as the ravings of a lunatic Candy Addict, but then we kept getting more and more comments sparking a debate on the chewableness of the wrappers.
At the time of this writing, even the Stride Gum wikipedia page says the wrappers are made of rice paper and can be eaten. I contacted Cadbury-Adams, the makers of Stride, to get to the bottom of this.
I posed one simple question: “Are Stride Gum wrappers intended to be chewed?
While there’s nothing toxic in them, gum wrappers aren’t intended for ingestion and gum wrappers should not be eaten. The wrapper is not intended to be chewed or eaten and will not add anything good to the gum (though it won’t hurt you).
Should you have any questions or concerns about your children ingesting gum wrappers, please contact your doctor or other health care professional. Just enjoy the gum as they intended it – wrapper-free!
