Infinite Crunchy Gum

zero calorie crunch sensation

Small (1cm) ball with tiny linear gears inside, along 3 perpendicular axes.

When chewing along any dimension, it compresses a bit, with resistance, with a satisfying "crunch" sound.

The gear rotation provides energy for a speaker to augment the sound.

Tiny internal springs expand the dimension after each bite, to provide infinite* crunching.

(*Your mileage may vary.)

Yes, weight-loss food is still food, right? Zero-calorie foods are sold. And, yes, this sounds pretty disgusting, & may be my worst idea here.

       Should be attached to a fine chain and 10cm T-bar to prevent accidental swallowing.
