933. Curaçao’s Best-Selling Gum: Wrigley’s PK

wrigleys-pkWrigley’s PK is sold all over the island… and has made its way into our lexicon.

1. “E ta pega manera un bals!” = It sticks like a gum.

2. “Here, take a PK!” = You have bad breath.

3. “Don’t you want a PK?” = You have bad breath.

4. 3-4 chews in PK loses its minty cool taste, so buy in bulk! (its fruitier sweeter sister, Dulce 16 (Sweet 16), is ‘out’ in 2-3 chews…)

5. Rasta Bals is our favorite PK purveyor!
