When you chew, it plays a tune - or at least perceptible notes - using some kind of synthesized crystalline ingredient that cracks between your teeth.

       It doesn't even need to make particular notes; it just needs to make distinct and regular tones. By expanding and compressing the volume inside your mouth, you can modulate the pitches of the individual notes. Of course, moving your mouth this way might be hard while chewing but practice would solve that.

       Wasn't this in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory or someplace?

       Yes, there was a candy in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang that was also a whistle, called Toot-Sweets. Track 5 on the soundtrack album.

       P.S. Chewing gum with your mouth open is the reason the rest of the world hates America. This idea ain't gonna help.

       Seems a little naive. I thought it was more related to foreign policy and all that.

       I'd vote for this cause it would get rid of the disgusting noise that the 90% of people who chew gum make (purposely chewing with their mouths open to make the most noise possible -- total pigs). But I'd have to be able to pick the music. No rap. No country.
