    (Didn’t watch the video…just read the pros and cons…)

    I’ve been using these since they came out on the market. Personally, I can’t even think about chewing another piece of grape flavored chalk again. The thought alone even makes me gag….and picking out the flecks from your teeth for the next ten minutes just drives me crazy. This stuff is especially useful during bed time when you’re low. Rip and sip and go back to sleep. No more chewing…chewing…chewing….blech.

    I’m not affiliated with these guys in any way…even though it sounds like I’m really singing their praises. I’m just that happy with the product.

    BTW, You can often get coupons at CVS to bring the price down from the $4.99 retail to sometimes under $3 per box of 3…making them about $1 each.
