11 Foods Banned Around the World

2. Chewing Gum

Americans chew a lot of chewing gum, and it can be a problem if they don’t get rid of it properly. There is probably no public table in the country that has not pressed at least one or two cotton wool under it. It is disgusting, but the sale of chewing gum is too profitable to stop.

But in Singapore, a country known for its cleanliness, they don’t have it. Chewing gum was banned in 1992 to keep roads free of sticky garbage. The penalty for violating the ban is harsh: they continue to sell chewing gum in Singapore and could receive up to 2 years in prison or a fine of 1,000 dollars.
