Canada has given the United States a lot of fantastic things through the years. Some are easier to embrace than others, like this soap-tasting gum. It’s called Thrills, and it’s actually gum that’s flavored with rose water, but the result seems to taste like soap to a lot of people. Thrills got so much feedback on the taste that instead of changing the formula, they decided to run with it. Now they proudly say, “It still tastes like soap!” on the front of every pack of gum. While it likely turns a lot of people away, it must be a selling point for some since it’s been around since the 1950s.
Thanks, Canada and Happy Canada Day!

‘how about the menu first?’”
