If you swallow your gum, can you actually see it in your poop since it doesn't digest?

I read this on Google: "Your body can't digest gum, but a piece of swallowed gum will usually pass through your digestive system — basically intact — and come out in your stool about 40 hours later, just like almost everything else you eat." So... It would just stick in your gum? Lol
