    There is clearly a difference in the force required for a specified displacement. While your mouth does the same motion, there is more strength required per chew. But! I agree that since Starburt is safe for normal people, people with special conditions should take care. As soon as you put the starburst in your hand, you know how difficult it is to chew.

    To me the best way to describe the difference is in terms of "Indentation Force Deflection."

    Its a great experience seeing them play. It was a good atmosphere. The fans stood up the whole game and never sat down. They have a great fan base.

    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    How many chews did she make before she had the problem? Did it happen on the first chew? Because after one chew she should have know the darn thing is "chewy."

    She might also have gotten the message that the thing is "chewy" by looking at the label:

    We need to start building courtrooms with trap doors in the floor. You bring in a ridiculous claim, you and your lawyer get dropped into a moat.

    They should be careful and not force society to idiot proof everything. If I had that particular problem I wouldn't be eating anything but hard candy.
