Tums...... all you wanted to know........

Tums were invented by James howe .... A Missouri pharmacist ....... Added note .... Missouri is usually referred to as misery and how people hate it ..... And hate living their in a miserable shithole ....... He made them for his wife ..... Nellie Howe...... The two were preparing for a cruise....... Notorious  then as now...... For loading down passengers ..... With food and drink ...... (Funnily enough ..... Indiana chemist and ..... Alka seltzer inventor .... Hub Beardsley..,. Brought his own tablets..... Of baking soda and aspirin...... On a Mediterranean voyage..... That same year....... But the products name.... Came from a local nurse at a military base .... Jefferson barracks..... Through a company sponsored radio contest .......

The Tums factory ...... Is a St Louis landmark..... Those tablets have been churned out since  day one ...... The factories seven interconnected buildings .... Take up a full city block...... It's one of the last major manufacturers ..... Which was once a Midwestern..... Industrial powerhouse.......

Tums start out as 2000 pound super sacks..... Those sacks contain a ton of sugar....... Calcium carbonate...... Which are mixed with water ..... And starch.......... When it dries .... It fed into  powerful compressors...... That squeeze it into tablets ....... Using about five tons of force ........
Each of the factories 27 "tablet stations"....... Cans. Spit out 2500 tablets  in a minute ..... They are then bottled ..... Rolled up ..... Anshipped around the world ...... 

Snailsove Tums why .... You ask ...... Well I will tell you ..... The calcium in Tums tablets ..... Is exactly what they need .... The slow crawlers .... Need for a strong healthy shells ...... So snail owners pop them into their tanks ..... To to keep them happy ..... Owners grind them up to make snail jello.... Snails love it .... The minty ones burn the snails foot ...... Who fucking knew huh !!!!!!!!!
