Excerpt from a new memoir I’m working on  

Although chewing gum isn’t even considered eating, Orthodox Jews refrain from even tasting the flavors of the secular world. The un-kosher, un-supervised, un-regulated flavors. We were stuck with Must, as in, you must follow all the commandments. Must gum comes in little pellets that lose flavor after about ten minutes and dissolve into your mouth. Signing up for a lifetime of Must was a big commitment.
