It was finals week on Florida State’s campus and Exercise Science major Michael Bracciale was in the library studying. He took a break to grab a large coffee and a chicken pesto sandwich downstairs. After finishing his lunch, Mike was approached by Jessica (his classmate and proclaimed love of his life) who was asking for tutoring help. As he started going over the material he noticed and grimace on her face. He immediately realized that Grande coffee did a number on his breath. He rushed to the bathroom and pulled out his pack of gum.
First stick of gum – soaked up the lunch in his mouth
Second stick – took out the remains
Third stick – spit out before returning because he was self-conscious about gnawing it down in her face.
On the way back to the table he received a mint from a friend and came back to tutor Jessica with confidence. Everything was going well – for about 30 minutes. Then, even he was distracting himself with the Grande pesto macchiato smell coming out of his mouth. Embarrassed, Mike made up an excuse to go home. He gargled some mouthwash and slumped back in his chair.
That’s where he asked himself, “Why isn’t there a better solution to keeping bad breath at bay once you leave your home?” He wanted something that could fight bad breath all day whenever he need it. Out of the corner of his eye he saw the liquid water enhancer on his desk which gives the user the ability to add any flavor to their water with just one squirt – Strawberry Watermelon he recalls.
