Beverly chewing gum

Beverly Crusher tries her first chewing gum

Chewing gum was a flavored Earth concoction, which Humans chewed but did not consume.

In the 20th century, a stick of bubble gum - a special variety, popular among children, in which the chewed gum could be blown into a bubble - was usually included with a pack of baseball cards - the 24th Century trader Kivas Fajo, whose massive collection of artifacts included a 1962 Roger Maris card, made sure that its display case emitted the same scent as the gum originally packaged with it. (TNG: "The Most Toys")

An antique shop in 1986 San Francisco contained a number of chewing gum vending machines. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Chewing gum was also a habit on Sigma Iotia II in 2268, where the planet's society was based on the 1920s gangster world of Earth. (TOS: "A Piece of the Action")

In 2364, Beverly Crusher was offered chewing gum in a Dixon Hill holodeck program, but mistakenly swallowed it. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

Guinan was eating chewing gum when she appeared as Gloria from Cleveland in the Dixon Hill holodeck program in 2367. (TNG: "Clues")

One of the lots sold in an auction held by Quark in 2373 was a mint condition 1951 Willie Mays rookie baseball card from Earth, but it did not come with the original packaging or chewing gum. (DS9: "In the Cards")

In 2375, during a game of baseball in the holosuite, Julian Bashir was confused by the notion of a food that one simply chews. Miles O'Brien told Bashir that his chewing gum was Scotch flavored. (DS9: "Take Me Out to the Holosuite")

In 2377, Tom Paris and Ensign Tabor created a holodeck program of the Palace Theater complete with authentic chewing gum stuck to the floor. (VOY: "Repression")
