can I chew gum in the bathroom? for example when taking a shower.
what about candies?
A person should not chew gum when using the bathroom. Regarding chewing gum when taking a shower, since the shower is located in a bathroom, chewing gum in the shower should ideally be avoided.
Candies have the same status as chewing gum.
All the best
Minchas Yitzchak 3:63 states that food should not be brought into a clean bathroom unless necessary. Gum is considered “food” as long as the gum retains flavor. Mishna Berura 84:7 states that drinking in a bathhouse (as opposed to bathroom) is allowed. See also Chazon Ish O:C 17:4 regarding modern day bathrooms,
