Nuts and Gum Together at Last!


Lisa: It’s awful being a kid. No one listens to you.
Abe: It’s rotten being old. No one listens to you.
Homer: I’m a white male, age 18 to 49. Everyone listens to me, no matter how dumb my suggestions are!

The Simpsons | Season Five - Episode 14

If you’re a white male, age 18 to 49, you might consider this a good idea: Nuts and Gum – Together at Last! Or you might now, I’m not here to judge white males age 18 to 49, or anyone really. In The Simpsons episode that features Nuts and Gum, we’re given no specification on the label about the types of nuts or the types of gum that are used. So I decided to try out a few varieties to see which worked the best, or at least the not worst.

Ingredients

  • Nuts: Peanuts, Cashews, Almonds, Macadamias, Walnuts, Pecans
  • Gum: Peppermint, Bubblegum and Cinnamon

Nuts and Gum Ingredients

Directions

Combine a handful of nuts with single piece of gum and consume.

The first few bites of Nuts and Gum were extremely confusing. You simultaneously want to continue chewing and swallow what’s in your mouth. I’m pretty sure I broke my brain a little with this concoction because I just stood there like a slack jawed yokel chewing for 30 seconds, unsure about what to do next. I finally settled on spitting Nuts and Gum out rather than eating it.

But which is the best of the possible flavor combinations? The Cinnamon and Bubblegum flavors actually weren’t that bad, because the sweetness of the gum worked well in combination with the nuts. The Peppermint gum, however, was actually even worse than I had anticipated. I could only handle chewing on that for a few seconds because the taste was simply too strong. So if I had to, I’d recommend eating any combination of nuts and gums as long as it’s not peppermint.

Just generic peanuts & bubble gum. I’ve made the mistake of chewing a piece of gum after eating peanuts a few times when I was a kid. I totally understood the reference when Homer grabbed his can of Nuts and Gum! 🙂

I was surprised by how good the bubble gum worked with the nuts. Mint gum should never be attempted.

I think I’d actually like a video of you eating this.

No, you wouldn’t. Because everything about Nuts and Gum is gross.
