That onion sandwich sure was delicious. But now you’re 5 minutes away from a hot date and plagued with bad breath. This is a Gumergency!
Many people keep breath mints for these dire life moments. Whether a date, business meeting or just hanging out with friends, keeping ones breath fresh is a top priority.
Enter the Excel Gumergency Hotline. This was created to intervene with the people with chronic bad breathness.
A recent Excel Gum survey found out of 900 Canadian, 75% deal with colleagues with bad breath.
“It’s not much fun having to deal with a bad breath emergency, whether it’s someone else’s or your own,” says Laura Amantea, Wrigley Marketing Manager.
The national survey also found that:
- More than a quarter (27%) of respondents have had a coffee-related Gumergency.
- One in five (20%) respondents have had a Gumergency before or during a date.
- One third (33%) have experienced a Gumergency during an airplane landing, when they needed their ears to clear.
It was also noted that 20% of survey takers responded that they’d offer a free pack of gum to those in need.
Personally, I often hand out gum to co-workers when I can simply no longer stand their bad breath. It is the most polite Canadian thing to do in situations like this.
