Chewing Gum: The Vintage Way by MonkeeMobile Chewing Gum: The Vintage Way by MonkeeMobile
I was browsing through our local dollar store and stumbled upon this gum (literally, as it was in a plastic tub on the floor) and fell in love with these gum wrappers! They're just so red and vintage :love:
So what does any camera happy person do? Grab a camera, a scrap of fabric, and about five packages of gum. This was my result. I'm hoping to get a friend or two over and dress them up in retro clothing and make a gum advertisement. First I need to find a willing person...

I like this gum. I think there are two others they make that are older, too. I know one's Black Jack, and that tastes like black licorice. I don't remember what the other kind is called, but it's got a white wrapper and I didn't like it as much as the other two. This kind is definitely the best, 'though.

I really enjoy this gum too. I haven't tried Black Jack yet, I've heard of it but I didn't see it with the other gum at the store. Is the other gum you're thinking of Beemens or Beemans or something like that? If it is, I do have a pack but I haven't torn into it yet :evillaugh:
By the way, I love your DA username and icon =D

Yeah, that's it! I couldn't remember.
Mutual for the username and icon. Obviously the username. Haven't gotten into the older DW stuff much, but I suspect I'd appreciate it. I picked up a 25th anniversary book about the first five doctors at a second-hand bookshop recently, but haven't gotten around to reading it, yet. Don't know if I should without watching some more first...

Thanks :) I haven't seen much of the new DW, I was digging around the closet and found a box of vhs tapes from the late 80's that my mom had recorded the fourth and fifth doctor episodes on. I put one in and my obsession began... I've heard wonderful things about the new doctors. That 25th anniversary book sounds like fun :)

Sugar free gum has a funny after taste. It bugs me that they're making it harder to find just plain gum with sugar in it. I mean, as much as you can be bugged about that kind of silly stuff...

Thats very true - It is getting harder to buy gum with sugar. Lots of people are looking to be healthy and 'sugar free' in their gum choices I guess :shrug:

I don't chew sugar free gum... it's not good for you! (it might be good for your teeth, but not for the rest of your body!) but yes, the gum is good. :)

Huh, I've never heard that sugar free gum is bad for you! Thanks for the info! I'm glad you're watching my back, or should I say my mouth?
^Sorry for the awkwardness of that last sentence.
