How To Crack Gum

All throughout my life, I've had people ask me how I crack my gum. Well first, let's define "gum cracking". Gum cracking, different from gum popping, is a sport crafted mostly by black women. We understand that OF COURSE other types of people, including men, participate in this SPORT, I do believe, without proof, black women created this form of recreation. Anyways, gum popping is usually done by blowing a reverse bubble into your mouth using your front teeth and then popping the bubble. Gum cracking, however, is only done by chewing the gum. It's actually quite scientific. You don't manipulate the gum with your tongue at all during the gum cracking process.

Here's how it works: you get a very decent piece (stick) of chewing gum. Unlike gum popping, gum cracking can usually be done with chewing gum only and NOT bubble gum. Sugarless chewing gum works much better than Wrigley's (because all Wrigley's gums have sugar). You get the stick of gum and chew it a bit to work it in. Then, with the back teeth, you work the teeth against the gum, almost the way you would if you were kneading dough. The top tooth and bottom tooth pull the gum apart, creating a pop. It takes a lot of practice and concentration.

The best gums to use for gum cracking: (sticks only! not bubble gum or chiclet type gums!)

Extra - All flavors
I really like peppermint Extra. The popping abilities are endless and the flavor lasts a really long time. I've also discovered a new Extra flavor, Berry Paradise. If you usually only chew minty gums, Berry Paradise can give you that fruity flavor to break up the monotony once in a while. Kinda reminds me of the bubble gum I use to chew when I was a kid. Try it.


Trident - the old school kind that comes in the 8 packs
The old school Trident comes in flavors like cinnamon, peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen and bubble gum. This was the gum I used back in the day, teaching myself how to crack. Works very well. The newer brands of Trident on the candy shelf at the checkout lines DO NOT WORK well for cracking. Some of you may have exceptional cracking ability but I don't use those gums for cracking. I don't have the patience.


Carefree Sugarless Gum - Do they still make this?
I haven't seen Carefree gum in years but if you can get your hands on some, it works very well for cracking. They come in the same flavors as old school Trident if anyone cares.


5 Gum - New!
New 5 Gum is not only new and comes packaged in a really cool little gum kit with metallic wrappers, this gum is great for cracking. Try the Cobalt (peppermint flavor). Cracks like a champ!

Well we're sure there are many more good cracking gums out there. Suggestions are always appreciated. Please let us know in the comments section. And for all of you aspiring crackers out there, KEEP PRACTICING! You'll get it one day!

the funny part is i'm irritated because a black girl at my office is always "cracking her gum". I'm not racist at all, i'm a minority myself, but i've noticed that i've only seen black women do this....and its fucking annoying and disgusting. I have nothing against black people...just this insanely irritating recreational activity you decide to practice in all environments. anyway i typed it into google and this little blurb came up....

i really do like black people, i just think your gum popping is obnoxious.

Anonymous said...

Niggers are experts at being loud, obnoxious and annoying. The last thing you need to do is teach them how to be louder and more obnoxious.

Anonymous said...

That ain't cool man, so what if they're loud and annoying lol that's a racist generalization lol. But it's true lol african americns are rly good at popping gum lol. One kid in my class cracks, smacks, pops and blows bubbles the size of your head lol.

I think he chews that Lebron James buble yum.

Anonymous said...

Lol, I love this. A co worker has been trying to teach me how to do this and fyi for all the people that claim this is a "black thing" you couldn't be more wrong. I see all the hispanic girls doing it in my neighborhood, way more than the black girls. This white girl can't wait to crack her gum :p

Here's an idea: Don't crack gum.

Approximately 10 to 15% of the population is soft sound sensitive. That means you're pissing off 10 to 15% of the people in every room you crack gum in.

I don't have any problem with people that do this in the privacy of their own home.

But, for those of you that chose to do it in public, shame on you. As a boss, I've banned it at the office, and I give every person that does it the evil eye.

Unfortunately, many that crack gum just don't get how ear-piercing it is to those that are soft sound sensitive. Please, shut your filthy mouths people!

I'm one of those that this really annoys. It's a disgusting habit.

My friend and I were recently talking about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets cheaper, the possibility of copying our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

Yes, This is the rudest behavior and it's always bothered me A LOT. I changed colleges because a bunch of nasty, spoiled, snobby little sorority girls did this in all the chemistry classes, as loud as they possibly could, constantly and none of the professors would make them stop. And yes of course the black girls too. There is a difference in being a black PERSON and a nigger. Black people don't do this, NIGGERS do. And the sorority girls, though they were all white and rich with nice clothes were NIGGERS! I actually hate the "N-word" i think it is the dirtiest word in the English language, worse than the F-bomb, but I'm trying to make a point. If you don't want to be called an N-word or a piece of white trash, spic trash, etc, etc, THEN DON"T ACT LIKE ONE!!!!! This is passive aggressive behavior and done on purpose to torment others NOT out of ignorance.
