A gift for the traveler who has everything, including sinus congestion.
Do you have someone on your holiday gift list who suffers from “airplane ear,” a condition where nasal mucus blocks air flow through the eustachian tubes when there’s a pressure imbalance between their middle ear and the air around them?
Who doesn’t, amiright?
Well, now the scienticians at AirFrance have developed a high-tech, non-invasive, and orally administered solution to this sound-muffling issue.
They call it, simply “La Gomme a Macher.”
It’s a soft, cohesive substance composed of polymer, plasticizer, and resin components, as well as sweeteners, flavors, colors, and, typically, a hard or powdered polyol coating.
You take it immediately following your flight until pain relief is achieved and/or hearing is restored.
Alternatively, you could just sit in a chair, bend forward, and hang your head low to the ground for a few minutes. Or just pop a Sudafed a half hour before you land.
But fancy, overpriced French gum is clearly a much better idea.
