Fragrant mask with chewing gum

You actually WANT to get this mask on
  [vote for,

So your breath isn't foul and you feel great wearing the mask with it's addicting fresh oranges fragrance. You'll even want to wear one when it isn't needed.

After a while you chew this one up and take out another one.

Problem solved.

       What is the role of the chewing gum?

       I don’t believe anyone wants to wear a mask if we don’t need to. I can just put essential oils on and smell orange all day.

       // I can just put essential oils on and smell orange all day. //   

       You likely wouldn't. Eventually you'd become desensitized to it.

       // What is the role of the chewing gum? //   

       Maybe this one is made OF chewing gum, so when it loses its frgrance you can chew it up?   

       [-] though, as scented masks are WKTE.

       Not sure you could make something cheap AND filtery AND edible, but it would solve the "disposable mask litter everywhere" problem.

       // would solve disposable mask litter everywhere" problem //   

       While adding to the "discarded chewing gum everywhere" problem.

       No no! Not a chewed used mask. The problem that is solved here is the problem that people DONT WANT TO WEAR MASKS. There is a piece of chewing gum attached to your mask with a string. It has a good taste and at the same time is addictive.   

       The solution is similar to the link I will now post about the rice-paper tickets in Germany. There is also an addictive smell to the mask itself.   

       No more fights about not wearing masks. Everybody just wants to wear one.

       //Not a chewed used mask//
Ah. Your description REALLY implies that it is the mask that is chewed. Having chewing-gum inside won't change the "don't want to wear mask" problem; I (for eg.) don't like chewing gum (I have no problems with masks...).

       I regret that I have only one bun to give for this idea. The clarification is even worse than the original.   

       Chewing gum on a string attached to a facemask? It's gonna need something more addicting than a fresh orange fragrance. Maybe a milligram of carfentanil would do the trick, and wearers would never worry about masks again.
a1, Jan 12 2022

       …and I’m so curious as to what is in the gum that makes it so addictive? And also, is it edible string?
