Expiration Date

There's an orange-flavored gum called Citrusmint that tastes just like orange Tic-tacs. I like it immensely, though I must be among a minority because the company that manufactures it has discontinued the flavor. They replaced it with a coconut flavored mint that has the word "medley" in the title. The flow of Citrusmint stopped several months ago, but I know a handful of stores where it can be found among the gum stock. Of course, it's not getting any fresher, and I have to wonder at what point this chemical-based food will go from being my favorite gum to the stuff that gives me migraines and cause what few functioning synapses firing in my skull to go on permanent leave.
