Even though I don't ride with you I think you are consistently breathing while you ride.
Because you're still alive. If anything that hard candy or gum only forces you to notice your breathing because its preventing you from breathing properly or consistently with your own breathing pattern. I find it hard to believe you are not breathing consistently while you ride, yes you may end up breathing hard and sense or feel like you're not but that's because you're breathing hard or under a higher level of effort that you notice your breathing. If anything keep riding hard, whether it be intervals or just riding faster than normal and eventually you won't notice your breathing as much and think its consistent.
