When was the last time you chewed a piece of gum?

If the answer is, “I no longer chew gum” you’re not alone.  More and more we are choosing those little designer mints and bite-sized candies.

I still remember going downtown to Jones Drug in Redfield for penny candy and gum.  And what a great selection too.  Clove, Beemans, Black Jack and Chiclets.  You could get a whole pack for of a dime.  Now our favorite chew treats are setting us back over a buck or two.

I know you could make someone’s day by offering them the chance to blow a bubble.  Try and find a bag of Double Bubble, Hubba Hubba or the best bubble gum on the planet, Bazooka.
