Boyfriends you can really get a taste for!

I’ll never forget that moment, stripping him of all that covered him and leaving him bare and exposed. My breath hitched in my throat as I caught a whiff of his scent. I couldn’t hold back any longer. I opened my mouth and put all of him inside and began chewing.
Disclaimer: This isn’t some kind of sadistic smut story! Honest!
It’s actually a relevent bunch of sentences, because I’m going to tell you about something that is both wonderful and completely weird.

Gum boyfriends.

Yup, you read that right. Gum boyfriends.
A new sales tactic developed by chewing gum manufacturers in Japan which sees certain gum brands given a human persona in the form of a hot high school guy. No complaints here!
Chewing gum sales in Japan have dropped in the recent years and companies are blaming it on the increased usage of smart phones by citizens. Gosh darn technology! Distracting us all from the once-loved past time of paying attention when we chewed gum! They hope to raise interest by using the characters to advertise and promote their gum.
(I think this is the most I have ever said ‘gum’…)

~ For Black Black we have cool Shigeki Black-senpai
~ For Acuo we have boy-next-door Seiryo Acuo
~ For GreenGum we have megane Shinryoku Gren
~ For Xylitol we have flirtly Shirakaba Xylit-senpai
~ Finally, for Fit’s we have cutie Yawaraka Fits

Honestly, I can’t do it justice! Have a look at the article on AnimeNewsNetwork, watch the promotional videos and bask in the wonderment that is Gum Kare!

…Is it wrong to enjoy this?
