Dentyne Classic Gum
Taste the Tingle of Dentyne Classic Gum. In 1899, a New York City druggist named Franklin V. Canning created a chewing gum which he promoted as an aid to oral hygiene. "To prevent decay, To sweeten the breath, To keep teeth white," read the package. Mr. Canning called his new gum Dentyne which is a combination of the words "dental" and "hygiene."
