But i can't. I try to slid my finger underneath the lid, no chances. You just have to push the spot right under the lid and you can black magikally get a piece of gum. You have got to push on the lid and slide the screwtop. This is obviously so kids cannot open it and drink that attracting clear content. This also prevents adults like me from using it. no matter how hard i push and slide, nope. Obivously, No explanations needed.
