Mint and moustaches

We’ve just discovered Peppersmith. They make ‘fine English chewing gum’, and they do a fine job at telling people about it. Their website is worth a visit. And if you get your mitts on a pack of their gum, take a good look at the words. Our favourite bits are the ‘Moustache Heroes’, (little stories about notable, moustache-sporting persons from history) and the list of ingredients.

‘INGREDIENTS: Xylitol*...’

‘*Xylitol is also known as wood sugar (‘xyl’ is Greek for wood – think xylophone).’

Learning while you chew. Nice.
