-- The cultural tradition of chewing gum seems to have developed through a convergent evolution process, as traces of this habit have arisen separately in many of the early civilizations. Each of the early precursors to chewing gum was derived from natural growths local to the region and were chewed purely out the instinctual desire to masticate. Early chewers did not necessarily desire to derive nutritional benefits from their chewable substances, but at times sought taste stimuli and teeth cleaning or breath-freshening capabilities. Sitting in his workshop one day, tired and discouraged, Thomas Adams popped a piece of surplus chicle stock into his mouth. In 1870, he opened the world's first chewing gum factory.

Read: Chewing Gum in America 1850-1920: The Rise of an Industry
-- Americans began chewing gum long before 1850, scraping the resin from spruce trees, removing any bits of bark or insects and chewing the finished product. Commercially-made gum was of limited availability and came in three types--tree resin, petroleum-based paraffin, and chicle-based -- the latter, a natural latex, ultimately eclipsing its rivals by 1920. Once considered a women-only bad habit, chewing gum grew in popularity and was soon indulged in by all segments of society. The gum industry tried vigorously to export the habit, but it proved uniquely American and would not stick abroad.
