Excessive Saliva: This is a MUCH better scenario than having dry mouth. Saliva is produced to help in digestion of your food. Upon chewing or even smelling food, your body naturally responds by salivating. I would not be concerned by this.

Salivary Glands: Are hyperactive for some reason? Any inflammation? Pain. Mass? See ENT to evaluate.
