GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- When you're in Gainesville, you might just want to do a quick breath check. That's because there's an unusual number of mints and gums and candies, and it's all coming from Georgia.
Wrigley's operates a production plant just outside of Gainesville where residents smell the Juicy Fruit being made. The company's websites show Gainesville boasts one of just three production facilities in the United States.
Juicy Fruit, Altoids, Life Savers and other Wrigley products are made here, then shipped to stores nationwide.
