It is obvious that my opponent has not brushed up on his chewing gum history.

First I will be rebuking my opponents statement that, "Many people have been chewing Juicy Fruit for more than 5 years longer than Stride Gum."

While yes, Wrigley's Juicy Fruit gum has been around longer, it has been alittle more than five years.
Wrigley Inc. released Juicy Fruit in 1893.[2]

Stride was first sold in the early 1920's by Donald Woodworth Sr. Sr. Sr. Jr.
It wasn't until 1943 when the gum was recognized as Stride Gum.
"When the war breaks out, the Woodworths become the sole provider of chewing gum to the U.S. Military. Troops chewed one piece of 'Allied Forces Go Operation US STRIDE��: The Ridiculously Long Lasting Gum��' throughout the year-long battles. Donald Woodworth Sr Sr Sr Jr Jr Jr claims credit for helping the allies win the western front. He maintains D-Day stands for 'Donald Day.'" [1]
Stride was then later sold to a company called Cadbury, a London-based confectioner.
Cadbury also owns labels such as Trident and Dentyne.

Now for my arguments:
Stride sells more than Juicy Fruit.
While Wrigley outsells Cadbury as a company, but when you compare the two gums, Juicy fruit and Stride, Stride outsells by millions. Probably because they offer various flavors.

I rest my case.

Trivia question: What is the flavor of Juicy Fruit gum?

It's an approximation of the flavor of passion fruit. Fresh passion fruit is much much better, but that's what they were trying for.

Clove gum is really good. It's hard to find these days.

Reasons for voting decision: CONDUCT: Trolling GRAMMAR: " i" should be capitalized in round 3. "I love Juicy Fruit and I Think Its The Best." This is a comma splice. ARGUMENTS: CON was never refuted. SROUCES: No sources from PRO. 7-) CON
