Awesome Thai "Chiclet Stick" Chewing Gum Ads

With all the fuss made over the commercials shown in the Superbowl this week, let's not forget who really makes the best ads of all - the Thais.

Interesting fact: The name "Chiclets" comes from chicle, the natural gum extracted from a Central American tree. The same sort of tree also produces the delicious fruit called sapodilla or sapote, but which in India is known as chickoo.

  1. I think the Thai version of Chiclets contains Aspartame (instead of sugar or other natural sweetener) so I won't be chewing it. The "crystals" are also highly suspicious. I prefer simple gum that won't destroy my mind and body.

    Aspartame is worst than any chemical in processed food because it destroys braincells. The actor Michael J. Fox who now has serious problems (as everyone knows) spent the last 20 years drinking Diet-Coke (containing aspartame).
