Does chewing gum make you sneeze?

Whenever I start to chew a new piece of chewing gum, I sneeze a couple of times. My son does this too but my daughter doesn't. Does anyone else do this? Does anyone know what causes it?

No, just when I start on a fresh piece.

Apparently that's called Photic Sneeze Reflex

Apparently the mint chewing gum sneezing is due to a Salicylate Allergy

Thanks for supplying me with my today's random facts reading/learning topics folks

Thanks, Jellybean, for the information, which I read. It doesn't mention sneezing as a symptom though. I do wonder if it's linked to mint as some mints cause me to sneeze too but not toothpaste!

For some strange reason chocolate makes me cough

Quite often smoking will make me hiccup oO
