Blessing on gum

Blessing on gum:[1]
One recites a blessing of Shehakol over flavored gum.[2]


[1] Beir Moshe 2/12; Kinyan Torah 5/17; Yabia Omer 7/33; Piskeiy Teshuvos 202/34

Other opinions: Some Poskim rule a blessing is not recited upon chewing gum. [Yaskil Avdi 8/7]

[2] The reason: As one benefits from its taste and swallows this taste into his stomach, hence receiving benefit of both the mouth and abdomen. [See Chayeh Adam 49/4]
