Mind-Blowing Ways Of Eating A Jawbreaker

A jawbreaker is a type of candy that many love. It’s commonly also known by the name ‘gobstopper.’ Of course, there are other candies that we cherish as well, e.g., bubble gum and skittles. They all contain sugar as their main ingredient, or else, why do we love them? However, a key rule for how bad candy is for your teeth is how long it stays in your mouth.

It’s a really hard, round-shaped type of candy, which makes me ask if anyone ever wondered how it’s made. It contains a mountain of layers, and that’s the core reason for its hardness. These multiple layers are similar for all jawbreakers, and the only variation is in terms of their sizes. 

When eating a jawbreaker, you have to be careful not to hurt your tongue since the larger ones literally can’t fit into your mouth. There’s always a way on how to go about it and also how to enjoy it.


Eating A Jawbreaker Candy

You decide to eat an entire jawbreaker. How do you do it? A large one can’t fit in your mouth, and if it does, you are probably hurting yourself without knowing. You have to lick it, probably dirtying your hands. A small kid would be understood if they get messy hands, but for you, a big person, no. You’ll have to do this for probably a long time until your jawbreaker is the perfect size that can easily fit into your mouth.

It’s almost the same way you lick your popsicle for a few seconds while holding its stick. The difference is that your popsicle eventually melts away, and your jawbreaker reduces in size gradually. Also, with a popsicle, the chances of dirtying yourself are minimal because of the stick, unlike a jawbreaker (one without a stick), which you hold with your hands, making it easier to get messy.

With a small jawbreaker, at least, you won’t have to lick for too long. The more you lick, the softer it continues to become. Use your teeth to test if they are ready to be chewed. With every lick you take, your tongue will be camouflaging its color due to the many colors constituted in the jawbreaker layers. It is not the only way of eating it.

You can decide to break your jawbreaker into smaller pieces before eating it. It may be easier to relieve your stress when it would reduce in size when you begin licking it.

Outside your home or anywhere else, there can’t miss a hard surface on which you can smash your jawbreaker. It may look a silly way, but it still can work. Just using extra force to throw it onto the ground until it breaks is what’s required.

If not, you can use a hammer and hit it right away. If dipping it into the water before hammering it would do the trick, well and good. However, it’s not that easy. Each time you hit the jawbreaker, it will just be rolling away. It’s stressful, I know.

Other than that, you can get to a high surface and throw away the jawbreaker down. The distance should be quite big so that it lands on the bottom surface with a heavy thud. It should turn out well. I doubt the jawbreaker can withstand all that kind of force. 

With the smaller pieces, it’s now convenient to eat your jawbreaker. Follow the same pattern – actually, it is now easier to lick the smaller particles until they get softer to chew but with extra caution. 

All these ways, how can’t you enjoy eating a jawbreaker?


Can A Jawbreaker Break Your Jaw?

A jawbreaker is hard. If one needs a hammer to break it, you can already guess how hard it is. So, for you to bite with your teeth, it would be insane. I can’t since I had a broken tooth fixed. I can’t dare try it.

However, let me not speak for others. Probably some of you have got this perfect jaw and teeth to withstand biting jawbreakers but know it’s still risky. A jawbreaker can make you lose tooth/teeth.

Let’s say a jawbreaker can injure your jaw and not necessarily break it. Maybe if someone threw it towards your face, we could say, maybe it can break your jaw. 

What’s The Fastest Time To Eat A Jawbreaker?

How fast are you when eating a jawbreaker? Challenges people taken ran for 1-2 minutes to finish their jawbreakers. The size seemed pretty small. For the Mega Bruiser Jawbreaker, a record was broken of being finished within 17 days, 4 hours, 8 minutes, and 19 seconds.

Wrapping It All Up

A jawbreaker is a sweet hard candy that you practically lick for it to reduce in size if it was a big one. Even for a small one, you still lick until it is convenient to bite or chew. You don’t want to take chances of breaking your tooth. 

Eating a jawbreaker is very common among children. With that, caution must be taken around them since they can easily choke if not properly guided. 

Also, as a big person, you got to be careful. When going on with vigorous activities, e.g., skating, be on the lookout for the jawbreaker you are sucking because it might end up choking you.

Jawbreakers are meant to be licked and sucked slowly up to a point they can reasonably be bitten or chewed. Do not risk biting with your tooth as hard as they are. Take caution before they do something bad to your jaws.
