I need to figure out how to unwrap a Jolly Rancher and stuff it in my mouth while doing 75mph with a Shoei Hornet DS on my head. I successfully chewed the wrapper off two of them on my last trip. It occupies your time during long stretches of straight road, but is not the preferred way. Any suggestions?

Thank You. No really. Thank you.

Put it in a blender and add it to your camelback before you leave?

Hold the candy between thumb and forefinger. Catch lower wrapper end between middle finger and ball of thumb. Rotate candy to unwrap lower end. Fret wrapper to open and expose candy. Bite candy and pull remaining wrapper off.

Lament boredom over interesting adventure of chewing through entire wrapper, or mastering unwrapping with tongue.

Unwrap several, lick them, then stick them to the inside of the chinbar for easy retrieval!

Should the overall size be too close to the face when attached to the chinbar use a Dremel to cut them into narrower strips.

If there isn't enough room for the desired quantity on the chinbar, try sticking them to the tank, windshield, etc. as works for you.

Think, "What Would McGyver Do?"

I got pretty good at dropping peanut m&ms down my facemask, and beef jerky too, but I'm not sure about the logistics of individually wrapped candy.

unwrap them ahead of time and put em' in a zip-lock bag.

of course then you have to figure out how to re-zip the bag at 75mph with one hand.

Stick a few in your cheek, and unwrap in your mouth. Not much harder than shelling a sunflower seed, though it does make less of a mess in your helmet.

That's what pillions are for.

That and paying toll fees, too.

DO not try and stuff a cigarette down the face hole a FF helmet and smoke it in traffic.

You will get burned.

You can do it easily with a Hall's or Vick's throat lozenge; different paper and different wrapping style. Jolly Rancher takes too much practice.

I guess I need to get out more. What's a Jolly Rancher?
