    Chew on this

    What is use of this phrase? I can get a slight meaning when I heard from American TV series, Gossip Girl, but I would like to know how and when to speak it.

    Please help.

    It means to think something over, to ponder it.

    "I read that disposable diapers stay in landfills for years and years without degrading, so I'm going to help the environment and use only cloth diapers on my baby."
    "Well, here's something to chew on: the extra water and electricity you'll use washing all those cloth diapers is contributing to global warming."
