CHICAGO – You might have heard it from a friend or even your parent when you were a kid as you were chewing away at a piece of gum.

Well it turns out that some of what they had to say, especially when it comes to how long it takes to pass, might not have been true.

WGN Morning News helped to dispell some myths about swallowing gum during the “6@6” segment on Wednesday. Along with presenting some facts about that, the hosts also talked about the sale of “The Goonies” home, what a “Candwich” is, along with a tribute to late actress Gina Lollobrigida.

You can see more on all those topics in this edition of the “6@6” on January 18’s show by clicking on the video above.
