Fruit Stripe

By far, one of my favorite gums to enjoy when I was a kid was Fruit Stripe. It had the best flavor – the very, very best – but there was one enormous problem with Fruit Stripe. After about 30 seconds, the flavor was gone.

It’s heartbreaking for an adult – you just spit out the gum and go about your day. But when you’re a kid, of course, you can just take another stick of gum and use it to reenergize that Fruit Stripe flavor. And to top it all off, that zebra on the package was practically begging you to do it. “Here – chew more Fruit Stripe! Buy more Fruit Stripe!”

Darn zebra.

Do you have a favorite gum from your childhood? -pm
